    I'm curious about the folder, it doesn't have a kick below the edge. Would I be right in guessing it has a stop pin of some kind?
    I really like the texture on the tang,nice contrast to the rest of the blade.

    No stop pin, just contour of the backspring. It does have a little bit of rap, though. The texture is a favorite of mine. Willem O’Kelly is the maker (K’roo blades) and he has a unique style and does really excellent work for a good price.

    Last night it did, took a bite out of me while I was working on "muscle memory"... opening and closing my newly purchased Russlock while watching TV.

    Not today, but two day ago, used my Rough Rider RR597 Uellow Trapper to open a Amazon padded envelope with ant bait, and a unexpected (after 2 months I'd given up hope it would ever come in) box containing a new flat band slingshot. :)
    I used the trapper to shorten the bands 5 inches, and a couple pieces of red and green (or is it yellow?) fiber optic for the sights, as well.

    I used these to cut open some seed packets and cut string for the garden.
    I know it looks kinda trashy now, but soon it'll be covered in green and makes a great tomato cage / vine trellis. :D

    I used this little Schrade today to swap out a few ear tags on some new bulls before we turn them out with the cows.
    I do like the sheepsfoot/Turkish clip blade combo on this one. With the sunken joints and the carbon steel, it’s a nice sleek knife.

    I used my case sowbelly a fair bit today but for the duty of crawling in the gravel under a new house I swapped to this 61ot. I had a few minutes to kill while under there so I left a momento. Not so bad for me laying sideways, I think.

    If anybody can find the carving they can have the knife. :D

    I found this on the workbench still shiny after a couple of years. So I gave it some kitchen work over a couple of days. Eggplant, sweet potato, turnip, orange, apple, banana, red cabbage-
    I tried sticking it in a potato first, but that never works for me, what with "ten minutes should be long enough", and "Overnight might dissolve the whole thing".

    This little guy helped me out today. I took my wife to the airport, and though I wasn’t going through security I figured as a precaution I would not bring anything too big or anything I would fear having confiscated. I managed to rip the plastic luggage tag of one of her bags getting on an elevator - tore out the hole the strap went through. While in the check-in line I cut a new hole in the other end of the thick rubbery tag, reattached it, and good as new!

    Hey! That blade measures a whopping 1-5/8”, I’ll have you know!:D I WILL be carrying this for the rest of the day, though, to compensate for the humiliation:
