    This 4” AGR Sunfish just showed up. “Blue stabilized oak”. Funky but I like it.

    Case/Bose Back Pocket in Grey Delrin
    The fact that it's so thin and rides vertically in the front pocket without tipping over, made me add it to my "user" pile.

    I had two Himalayan import Khukries show up. Not sure if they are the "traditional" knives we think of. But they are traditional khukries forged in Nepal....

    I'll post a pic, I guess, and if objected to, I'll remove it.

    I've been eyeballing his work, and there have been a few great deals on fixed blades in great steel on the exchange.

    @Ramrodmb
    Sorry Mark, just saw this comment minutes ago. :oops:
    Thanks and I agree, a Puukko would be the last knife standing if I had to narrow the herd to only one. Seems to be the best "do it all " blade I've even seen. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    This is the second Big Chris knife I've had, the first was a trailing point hunter in CPM-S90V. It was the best hunting knife I've ever had or even used, but I gave it to a dear hunting buddy of mine. I can't wait to use this new one come November.

    The "mail calls" I've had this year have been few and far between, but at the same time special. Here's another special delivery, straight from Sheffield and @Jack Black .
    Thanks, Jack! I am thrilled! :thumbsup:
    I will put more thoughts on it in the Guardians thread, hopefully this weekend.

    Another beauty. The stag from this group has been uniformly excellent.

    This Case SS single blade Navy Sowbelly with Gray Sawcut Bone covers arrived by mail this week. The Navy theme appealed to me and I'll put it with some of my Navy memorabilia.

    My first Buck slipjoint arrived at the PO box today, a 302 solitaire.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Blade wise it's kind of stout for a slipjoint which is not exactly what I'm used to, but it seems like a nice change of pace.
    It should still cut fairly well , so it's not that far off from what I'm used to.

    Just arrived, a Tiger Eye Acrylic #48 WT, with a nice leather slip.

    [​IMG]

    It must be the geometry of the blades and springs, but every #48 I've ever handled had the most wonderful walk and talk. If you've never tried one, you owe it to yourself to do so.
