    Thanks, it's a 3" blade and 4" handle. Should be just about right as an all round woods-walking and fishing type blade.

    Thank you Ray, your suggestion was a winner. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    @Gevonovich thanks Gev, you're too kind. Maybe I should take more photos in the rain.;)

    First mail call in a long time. Partially off @blackmamba strong recommendation. All things lined up fantastic stag price and I love 4” trappers don’t find many of those. I also saw ApostlePs video on the queen made Winchester’s that finished talking me in to it. Great pulls half stops and swedge work with a very smooth action ADD9B3B3-B59B-439A-AC6A-98DB0833D91E.jpeg

    James, Wow!! Stunning piece. Family heirloom is right! If I had to narrow it down to one knife, it would be a Puukko.:thumbsup: Thanks for sharing it.


    VERY clean! Neat little knife.:thumbsup:

    Great stag on the Winchester. It's nice when things all line up! Congrats!

    What beautiful horn, Josh! Congrats on the win!



    Very nice, all three respectable knives.:thumbsup:



    Lots of fun there, John!:cool:



    Just an honest old knife, Jeff. Looks well cared for.:thumbsup:



    Glad to see them all, Jeff. Looking forward to more of your acquisitions.



    Another fine Ulster, Kevin!:thumbsup::thumbsup:




    I absolutely love the Lion Steel barlows. I can't bring myself to order anything but Ram's horn. Congrats!;)



    I think you did real good there! Well worth it.




    That Walnut is just beautiful and the 42 is a great pattern. I have always liked the 47's with the houndstooth shield and micarta, as well.:thumbsup:

    This was waiting on me when I got to the office. Case Tribal in burnt amber bone. Actually going to my dad for Father's Day. Unwrapped, checked it and put it back in the box quickly. Had to before those bolsters made me put it in my pocket!

    Lucky dad.... thoughtful son.

    I bought my dad a pocket knife once. I think he carried it for a while, but he just was not a "knife guy". I don't think he ever found much use for one.

    Unlike his wayward son....:)

    Just got this one in the mail.
    I received this in a trade with @MJ71
    A beautiful Northfield #78 in Ebony Wood
    Thank you, Mark. It's a beautiful knife that I'm sure I'll get a lot of use from.

    This was Saturday, but I forgot to post it.

    I don't know why I waited this long so buy a 55, it's an awesome little knife.

    I still think Buck should make a more exact little brother to the 110 but am happy enough with the 55 as it is.

    They came out with the 117 mini special even though they've already got the 102 woodsman which is pretty close to being a mini 119 , so why not a mini 110 even though the 55 is pretty close to being one already ?

    My first GEC... a #44 Buffalo Jack in Gabon ebony... :D
    And a Case Tribal Lock CV in black synthetic, because I couldn't find one in ebony that wasn't a Bose commemorative...

    Must be the week for first GECs. Haven't opened the tube yet and it's killing me! But, this is my Father's Day gift from my wife, so I'm waiting until I get home so she can be there when I open it. When I do, I'll be looking at a 2007 #73EC in snakewood. Hoping to have pics posted tomorrow.

    I ordered a bunch of knives on Memorial Day weekend, and they finally arrived a week ago. These are the first two that I have pictures for. I think they are now the two biggest (both length and weight) folders I have! The shipping envelope in which my order arrived was very heavy.
    5 1/4" Rough Rider carbon steel folding hunter with yellow synthetic covers:
