    Don't plan on going any further than the end of the driveway today but thought I'd take these two out and carry them as a pair. Never know what might come up at a minutes notice.

    Case Sod Buster and Case Sod Buster Jr. - both CV and both with Stonewashed blades.

    Thanks, John. ;)
    But some of those European knives can be tricksters (it's a Joker, after all)! :rolleyes: It's actually a big folder:

    Very cool Puukko partner with your Hartshead, for your working pair; the grip on the Marttiini looks like you'll get an excellent handle purchase, sweet! :D:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Many thanks to you, Gary!!!
    Quite a hefty Euro-beauty; the grain pattern is wonderful on your beefy slicer! :eek::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I think you’re right about the the chestnut sowbelly. I’ve looked around quite a bit and found nothing but old pages and “out of stock” messages. The fact that yours was a gift from Ron puts it over the top! Thanks for the kind words about my Case, it was a gift from my wife this past Christmas, which puts it over the top for me!;):thumbsup:
    Have a good one.

    Hope everyone has a nice relaxing Sunday.

    A small Cattaraugus for today. Seldom carried or used, but it’s fun little knife.

    Thanks a lot for the kind words Gary, it's rare these days that I get a chance to use my knives as much as I have today, and they both performed well. I was having a walk in some local woods yesterday, and there's an 'urban farm' there, where a couple of neighbours of mine work. They've been cutting down a bunch of saplings, and having obtained prior permission, I took one to turn into a staff. I took the bark off, and thinned it down some, and smoothed out all the knots. If I get time tomorrow I'll start sanding it :thumbsup:


    My girlfriend brought me the Marttinni back from Finland, but that is an inexpensive model, and good value I think :thumbsup:

    Thanks JJ, yes, excellent grip on that knife. I have large hands, and most Scandinavian knives tend to have relatively large handles I find. I generally prefer a full flat grind to a Scandi or Sabre grind, but it was perfect for the job I was doing today :thumbsup:

    I love to see those two stunners JJ :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    gave up ... replaced suspenders with belt. added my 7OT with 1095 blade to what is mentioned in post 184943, page 9248.
    (to retain the 1095 theme)

    I still can't get photos to upload. "File Too Big" (or words to that affect) oops message.

    Thank you Gus :)

    Toby is certainly our joy.
    My wife and I never though we could get so attached to a little dog ... We must be getting older lol :) ... but then again, our girls are in love with him too !

    Hi GT, I used a very silly little app on my Iphone called " Ghost in photos" which let you add ghost, aliens and bigfoot to your pics :D
    I used the free version which I promptly deleted after. I can't believe they wanted a monthly subscription for it :eek::rolleyes: to remove water marks, high resolution bla bla :D

    There are other apps for the iphone but they all want your money.
    Photoshop would probably be ideal for what you are thinking but I don't know anything about ... except that is expensive.

    Thank you, Gary. I agree on the wide edge bevel on the Buck. They are very easy to sharpen. :thumbsup::)

    Thank you, Gary. :)
