    Thanks, Dennis.
    You definitely understand that little fish can be almost as fun as big fish.
    It's all about getting out into nature, the fishing is a bonus, and the catching is an extra bonus.

    Thank you, Jack. :)
    It's nice to feel relaxed after a vacation.
    Sometimes we do so much, we need a vacation after a vacation.

    I couldn't allow myself to fall too far behind. :)
    The cheap little compass reminded me of the kind of souvenir I would have picked up as a kid.
    We were always scouring the gift shops for cheap knives, compasses, flashlights, or anything we could afford.

    Good Morning Guardians.
    I enjoyed carrying and using the Hartshead, but it's back to the favorite child today...

    Thanks Dennis. Yes they do. ;)

    Those are my three most frequent carries. The buffalo horn one on the left is “my knife”—echoing something Chin once said about his ebony—and gets the lion’s share of carry, and, therefore, work. The rosewood on the right kinda snuck up on me. Sometimes its lighter weight and different feel in hand suits my mood. The Hartshead in front, well, it’s a cool knife that I already can tell will be an important member of the totin’ trio.

    Today, I’m being predictable and going with the horn:

    Happy Wednesday, Guardians. I hope folks are having a good week and that the weekend that’s starting to pop up over the horizon promises good things.

    Nice to see your trusty Barlow Bill :) :thumbsup:

    I'd definitely agree with that John :)

    I've had a few vacations like that John! :D

    Yes, I remember buying compasses like that as a kid too :) When I first started going out hiking I was about seven years old, and I had a compass like that and a map which would have been about 10 miles to the inch! :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    Thanks buddy :thumbsup:

    Looking good John :) :thumbsup:

    I'm sitting outside, pondering the knife in my hand...
    Why is this knife my favorite? I currently own about 30 knives, and HAVE owned a hundred more... Why this one?
    [​IMG]

    A gift from Jack... Strong pulls... butter-smooth action... replace-ability makes me not afraid to use it (I have backups)... African Rosewood makes it kind of unique... straight blade is easy to sharpen... easy to strop back up... gigantic nail mark is easy to locate... size is perfect for hand and pocket... shape fills the hand... slim enough for the watch pocket... 'snap' is ridiculous... wonderful fidget toy... won't close on you by accident... blade perfectly centered... satin blade wears well and continues to look good... perfect blade shape for opening packages... cutting food... carving sticks... fine tip control... unique blade shape makes people ask about it... fit and finish are not perfect but definitely above average... takes a lot of abuse and shrugs it all off... earning its keep... it's unique in my little world... it looks like a hard use knife, not a safe queen... a gift from Jack...

    Good morning Guardians! Had this with me since I got it, and don't see it going anywhere in the near future. Good cutter and fidget spinner... what more do I need?

    Thank you, Gentlemen. It's character that has been revealed through a lot of pocket time and honest work.

    Great musings! Thanks for letting us into your thoughts as you ponder the question.

    I'd humbly venture that it's not just those things, but also the way they ineffably come together in this particular knife that make it resonate so much with you. Whatever it is, I'm glad you've found one that works so well for you.
