Happy My Birthday to you. Fine looking knife.
Finally found a Beer Scout, so now I have 2 traditionals in the collection
Thanks! And, I won't hold my breath, but maybe someone there will like the idea enough...
Every once in a while I'll see a knife on here and have to look it up immediately and potentially buy one. Your Capuchadou presented one such occasion. The details on those... whew!
@traumkommode - Thank you kindly.
Just got this sambar stag Case XX split back in the mail yesterday. Pulls on the main blade are super strong, to the point of being hard to open, but I’m hoping it lightens up in time.
Buck recently added a couple of Jigged Bone options to the handle materials they offer in the Custom Shop. Naturally, I had to have a 503 in Sunset Jigged Bone.
Today I received a schrade walden 861 (yet another) with delrin handles but it has a craftsman etch and the front side of the main blade is polished like the old bone schrades. I have seen this on a few delrin knives. Maybe its an early delrin or maybe craftsman wanted it that way. I don't know for sure but it's pretty cool. Really well made knife that is quite snappy and tight. Had some rust that I cleaned up but does not look to have been used and retains the factory edges.
One of my Laguioles arrived today.. the Forge de Laguiole. It's an 11cm size in the traditional French .... yellow micarta. I was surprised how good it feels in hand. A few minutes on the diamond stone took off the factory burred edge, and it's pleasantly sharp. I only took a couple of quick pics of it, but here it is....
Much thanks, Paul. Your 861 is a beaut.
You are welcome, and thank you.
Beautiful bocote, Drew, an underappreciated wood to be sure!
Just today I received this mid 1970s Western W-39 trailing point with original sheath. Looks unused, but got some tarnish from being stored in the sheath, which seems to have gotten wet. I may try to clean this one up: any suggestions what to use?
A beauty, very unique
Thank you Kindly.
I got this one before I left for hunting, but had no chance to photograph it. Another from the mid '70s to early '80s, this Camillus 1013 reminds me of Roy Weatherby's California styled hunting rifles from the same period.
