Aw, thanks much, Ed.
I am happy right now. My wife’s parents and my parents, even though all well into their 80’s, were able to spend the day with us. I got to video chat with son #2 and his family twice, and my late son’s daughters, 9,14, and 15 are here for almost two weeks. Of course we...
Puma Buffalo Horn Trapper, and #43 Oregon Trapper today. The Zippo is for the smoker.
The plan is for both sets of our parents to come out today, as well as our granddaughters other grandad for a nice Father’s Day. In spite of my earlier threats to do a whole lot of nothing yesterday, I actually...
Don’t give a second’s thought to what we have to look at. You’re the one who has to carry them.
And I think you’re a very blessed man.👍🏻
I see life on the old Rosemary bush. See? I told you it would come back! And the old Boker is looking fine as ever.
Elk antler on these two~The stockman is a Camillus, a #66, I think. The original scales were an ugly synthetic, and had shrunk enough that nobody else wanted to bid on it.
Have a great Saturday. I’m looking forward to keeping busy doing a whole lot of not much. Feel like I’m fighting a bug or...
Thanks for the nice comments, Mike! Glad we share similar tastes.
I was attracted to the EO Teardrop Jack because Grandpa carried a Camillus in that pattern. I don’t carry/use his, but was lucky enough to find an identical Camillus to tote. Almost identical to the Robeson. I think that was a...
Schrade 194OT, and Robeson 12227 EO Jack, 1922-39Ok, this is funny. I thought to do a search using “Robeson 12227 eo jack”.
The very first search result was my exact knife, with a highly detailed description. His description of it’s having been subjected to the drooling ministrations of a...
I can’t tell on yours, but my Grandpa’s Imperial Barlow was the very thrifty shell construction. The plastic imitation delrin scales were ugly and faded, so I replaced them with horn. I do not advise that, because the bolsters on shell knives crush easily!
Still, Imperials have...
I am participating in the Thrifty Thursday observations today with these two unpretentious working man’s budget knives. Well, Sears did call this particular stockman a “Bowie”, which is a bit presumptious if not pretentious. And someone here may know... I cannot tell for sure who made it~Ulster...
Having just been on the receiving end of John’s kindness, I am not entering, just posting this as an encouragement to all y’all to enter.And will ya lookit that. Tomorrow’s tote fits just dandy.
John, thanks again, mi amigo!
I think it’s quite nice. I have always loved the contrast between polished white and bark. And having used elk antler on some of my hack jobs, I’ll testify that achieving similar thickness is no small thing.
A honey of a shot, Josh.
Hey Jack Black and Guardians!
Kudos on the 50K milestone. Fitting for such a timeless and classic knife, and a great achievement for it’s premier ambassador.
My first in-hand exposure to the Lambfoot was when Harry, aka: @Old Engineer handed me his lovely old Taylor’s Eye Witness, saying...
Just make the knife white/ivory. It’s the blank palette.
All you color hounds can just buy a little bottle of Rit Dye®️ and have a go at it.🤪
And I have also realized that sawcut doesn’t mean I can’t get smooth/beveled.
I have sandpaper out in the garage.😀
