    The Perfect Pocket Knife.

    “Hey, look guys. We’ve been selling those old pattern saw cut bone XX Barlows faster than we can make them. “ “Good to know; OK everybody stop production of those Barlows!”

    What happened to Case?

    There seems to be roughly two schools of thought separating GEC and Case knives: “almost flawless” was one “negative” term used to describe GEC knives. I’d go so far as to say that the best of anything is almost flawless, and for Case, “well it’s cheap.“ If it is cheap you want and you think...

    Your newest addition:traditionals of course!

    I would rate it 9 out of 10 for that run. You might find an individual knife that is an actual 10. I have a 97 that I believe is a 10, but of course that’s subjective. In terms of frequent carry the 44 is hard to beat. Let me know what you think of the pulls.

    Your newest addition:traditionals of course!

    One of Great Eastern Cutlery’s best patterns in my estimation. I’d have a couple but they are too strong for me to open reliably. Great knife!

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    Thanks so much. I know there is a kind of hidden association many of us have with the disease. Many brave souls. Yes, today is THE day. I am happy that I get to keep experiencing them, one at a time. I future the guys and gals who inhabit the porch are not going to let me get away with much...

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    Chemo and the outcome. I’ve mentioned in a number of conversations that I’m taking chemotherapy for cancer. Many of you have done the same. My prognosis is that once this round of chemo stops working, I will go into hospice here at home and let nature take its course. Could be months yet but...

    Lets talk GEC!

    The 66 Calf Roper is a favorite of mine too. I have a Buckaroo with slanted and threaded bolsters, cocobolo, but I like the modest serpentine frame especially in the Tidiuote 66s.

    Lets talk GEC!

    Well I’m getting down to four GECs, five if I can eventually find a sheep foot Barlow I can afford. Maybe Great Eastern Cutlery will do another run this time. I dither about Mike’s Dom but all the screws put me off. I’m too picky about traditional knives I guess.

    The Unexpected Mammouth

    I’m in my fight cancer mode. Had an infusion yesterday and since the steroids have not yet worn off I feeling good and “knifey” (that’s probably not a word… but knife nuts will understand). Jeff was so thoughtful to mod the blade and handle. I’m very grateful.
