    Got this in a trade a week or so back. I _really_ did think it was a rehandle in spite of the COA signed by Christine. Turns out it's a early GEC SFO for CC. Sometimes you just get lucky.

    I don't think I've seen a single blade canoe. That is an epic looking knife.

    Thank you, Alan. I've been carrying it the last couple of days after putting my own edge on it. I've only encountered one opportunity to use it but I'm very happy with it so far.

    Got this copperlock for free today. It was found at my work, and nobody claimed it and nobody wanted it so I was able to take it home. Very cool little knife.

    I have a few of the older USA Schrades and I really like them. I've been on the lookout for a nice 897UH for quite a while, and today I found this one, NIB, with all the original paperwork. It really wasn't sharp at all so I took it from 220 grit diamond to 60,000 grit lapping film, and now she's a shaver. I polished up the bolsters and I'm ready to put it in my pocket when I go out exploring tomorrow. Sweet little knife! (Sorry about the price sticker, I didn't want to mar the box by trying to pull it off. In accordance with forum policy, I'm not soliciting any comments about that one way or the other.)

    VERY glad to have this guy in hand:


    I think the #86 and the #97 have to be my two favorite GEC patterns. Just so nice.

    I think that little pattern is a keeper. I picked a couple up a bit ago and regret I didn’t get them sooner!

    I actually bought two of each, and then promptly gave them to my daughters. We live in the shadow of Mt Rainier and they love Bigfooto_O

    That would have been a bargain at twice the price. Great score!;)

    The last overlanding trip my buddies and I went on was in ''bigfoot sighting'' territory, so one of them got these patches for all of us to commemorate the trip.

    One buy and one trade. Loving how thin and slicey these are. Madison is just super comfy. Possum skinner ain’t bad either, especially with a lowered kick on the wharncliffe.

    This came today:
    Good thing I noticed this before it drew blood. A few minutes with a file and some sandpaper took care of the problem:
    5” closed, 4” blade - just about my favorite size:
    Very stiff opening and closing, which I suppose is better than the opposite in a friction folder. Here she is with her slipjoint sisters:

    I got this sweet Case even end stockman today. It might be the perfect size for a stockman. Fit and finish on it is excellent, and it's basically brand new. The winterbottom style jigging is icing on a pretty nice piece of cake... I'm pleased...

    Well done :thumbsup:
    I really like Case's ginger ale Winterbottom jigged bone. I usually buy patterns, but this bone is so cool, I bought this saddlehorn just 'cause I like the handles so much ;)

    Traded my K'roo lambsfoot for this K'roo Lanny's clip because I've never had a LC. Thanks @dyavorsky!
