    What a great looking fixed blade, Jeff. Looks just right as a useful tool. Nice sheath as well.:cool:
    Totally agree with your thoughts on the Tidioute. Also like the flat grind on it more than the Saber grind Northfield.


    That Toole looks beautiful! I look forward to seeing more of that Ironwood.:thumbsup: Sorry to hear of your issues with the Case.



    Beautiful, Kevin. I love finding an older Schrade. The Dogleg is a classic but the other one I haven't seen much of, though it is very graceful.:thumbsup::cool:

    Another Mail Call today, this time a 1960s vintage Western Black Beauty F66. Dark patina, but a very full blade and the sheath is original and in excellent condition as well. The 1095 CroVan took a beautiful edge, too!

    I seem to be monopolizing this thread, but I've sold and bought a bunch of knives lately, so here's another one that just came in.
    I believe this is my first camel bone GEC, and I picked a nicely mottled medium blue with well matched mark and pile side covers.

    It sure does,my f48a always takes a great edge.
    I tried with all my misuse as a kid and I couldn't get it to rust either.
    The tang has seen some rust before, but not the blade.

    I am a big fan of GEC. I really love their knives and I am a fan of good old made in the USA products. That being said I ordered a lion steel shuffler in rams horn with M390 steel. I really like this knife 38CC0B0C-73B8-4309-8E48-B36C89B56DAE.jpeg

    This Puukko arrived yesterday. It was hand-made by one of Blade Forum's own.
    A true artisan... @Todor Hristov.
    Expertly ground and polished blade, amazing stacked birch bark handle, beautiful and well fitted sheath, simply outstanding quality over all! Could not be more thrilled!

    These pics don't do it justice but here's a rainy day's effort...

    Thank you Todor for all your hard work in making this beautiful blade available.
    It's certain to be used and enjoyed for many years before becoming a family heirloom. -James
