    I happen to be carrying a knife with wood covers this week, and I happened to realize that on Wednesday, so I guess the stars are aligned for me to post in this thread! ;)
    A knife my daughter bought me in the shop of Mariano Zamorano in Toledo, Spain, although the knife was almost certainly manufactured by the Spanish company Nieto. (It's photographed resting inside a large Menger Sponge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menger_sponge#MegaMenger)(https://calvin.edu/academics/departments-programs/mathematics-statistics/mega-menger/).)

    Love your LC, netguy1999. Is that Blackwood or ebony? Who's the maker?
    Figured I'd participate in Wooden Wednesday this week with this little guy:

    That's a very nice knife you have there, yourself! Mine is a Case/Bose in ebony.

    Wow, that's a collab knife? It looked like a custom to me. Gotta get my hands on a case/bose collab knife one of these days...

    Thanks. My wife also has me eating a lot of apples, if she only knew how they help develop a patina.

    Thanks for the compliments on the Spanish knife my daughter gave me. :)
    I don't check out this thread very often, but I think I should develop a Wednesday habit to visit here; so many admirable knives this week! :thumbup:
    John, your ebony Case/Bose is fantastic, and the shield is icing on the cake!
    Pt-Luso, your 83 is very desirable!
    Shoot, I like 'em ALL (that's my problem! :D):
    Ron's rosewood Viper is high-class,
    Dave's walnut fixed blade is SUCH a rich-looking handle,
    justsomedude's jigged wood Halfrich is WAY out of MY league (bolster, shield, jigging all incredible)
    James's cocobolo toothpick with the bodice shield is dreamy! :thumbup::thumbup:

    GT, thanks for the kind words, I like the shield and wood on that one as well. IMO the toothpick is an winning design due to it's ergonomics and GEC toothpicks are arguably the best due to their "goldie locks" size. (not to big or too small.)
    BTW, you are an asset to any thread you choose to frequent so Wooden Wednesday benefits whenever you post here. Thanks for sharing that beautiful olive-wood slip joint your daughter surprise gifted to you.
