My thoughts on slips are almost exactly the same Jack, in fact I have the same slips! They are in my pictures daily. I like them because if my knife is on my desk at work and it’s in a slip, my students don’t even now what it is.I have a few nice-looking slips, made by friends here, and admiring their handiwork, and the way the leather is ageing, adds to my enjoyment when I take out my knife. I usually take knives out of the slips at the end of the day, but far from always, and sometimes they've sat in them for weeks without any adverse effects - but these are quality slips, made from good leather, and they're not damp with sweat
That’s a nice looking copperhead John, I have an older one in ocean blue, it’s buried somewhere in the “never ending “ basement renovation. I’m going to dig around and see if I can find it and post a picture later.Happy Saturday Everybody
The weekend calls for a bigger knife
This super well-made Case should do the trick
That is nice looking Staglon. I just got a Chinese made UH the other day (almost every time I place an online order I end up tacking some cheap knife to the order ) and the Staglon looks really bad.
The logo on the plastic sleeve for the stone brings to mind a shield on a Craftsman knife I've seen you post, a whittler, I believe? It's a nice knife.Wow! Memory lane. I still have the stone, but the yellow and black platic sleeve is lost in the mists if addled memory.
My stone has grooves worn in the edges from sharpening fish hooks.
That's a good reason I hadn't thought of.I like them because if my knife is on my desk at work and it’s in a slip, my students don’t even now what it is.
Excellent pairing... many varied blade shapes and sizes.
Thank you, Todd.That’s a nice looking copperhead John
Can't wait to see it...I’m going to dig around and see if I can find it and post a picture later.
