    Just used the sheepsfoot on my BTI Uncle Henry 885UH Stockman to cut the tape to break down about 20 boxes.

    Bought my first Barlow last spring, hardly ever carry it and have never used it. Yesterday and today I was working on fixing some caulking on the sunroom roof and used it to cut away the old, damaged material. Also yesterday, I used it to cut a hole in some aluminum flashing. Now I understand why it's such a handy little work knife!

    My Lambsfoot helped me open the ribs and will be on BBQ duty for the next few hours.

    Unnecessary workout, just for the fun of it.
    With my 19dps sharpening job it still cleanly sliced paper afterwards.
    Good HT GEC.
    Developing a nice working patina as well.

    And no, that wasn't whisky...yet.:D

    My candy stripe peanut carved the turkey for my family tonight, just to prove a point to my sisters husband. 99A3F0D0-C15B-47E1-A1B9-0EF06159F7A4.jpeg
    “Not enough knife” I disagree.

    I had smoked pork loin at my nieces last night, used a plastic fork but skipped the plastic knife for the one I had in my pocket. Ho ho ho image.jpg

    Cut Spam for a sandwich on Sunday. Used it to cut tomato and jalapeño this morning. Opened packages too.

    Not really a workout, but I was cooking breakfast this morning at our oldest daughter's house, and found that all her knives were like childrens' safety butter knives.... so out came the Goldenrod 92. At least I know the blade won't rust now... :D

    With the exception of Zachary's turkey, PORK seemed to be the theme for today.... :thumbsup:

    Not anything "serious", "exciting" or "hard use" ...

    I cut the cellophane off a small box a assorted chocolate candies that was in a Christmas Stocking.

    To quote @jackknife; ''It doesn't have to be big, just sharp''. Very true.

    Used my BTI Old Timer 280OT Barlow, and SAK "Signature" (for the scissors) to remove some dried paint drops from the (loop pile nylon) carpet.
    Also used my Marbles MR1838 "Hopalong Cassidy" moose to shave (not "scrape") dried paint off the baseboards.

    The (amateur) "painters" (note quotes) the assisted living facility used seem to have never heard of a "drop cloth" or of "Masking" … "wiping up drips" …
    All those light tan/beige ("Mushroom Brown" is what the paint company calls the color/shade) spots on the dark brown carpet … was driving me nuts after looking at them for 14 days …
    (I confess! Yes! It was a short trip! :) )

    The BTI Old Timer 280OT Barlow required neither sharpening nor honing, nor even stropping, after I finished. :)

    Sharpened two #2 lead pencils with the Marbles MR417.
    Opened the package with my new pen/pencil holder. (AKA: "24 ounce blue spackle porcelain on steel camping coffee mug") with the (BTI) Old Timer 280OT Barlow.
    Nothing else that needed cut or whittled presented itself. :(
