    It looks like your BL-22 has as many miles on it as mine does. I received it as a Christmas gift in 1975, and it has seen many thousands of rounds. I used to shoot it enough that I could shoot skeet and snowballs that were thrown in the air.

    Fox Knives Italy, Livri in M390. This is linerless and light with great action, despite thickish stock it will slice softish tomatoes-benchmark test :D I so much like this steel as found on Lionsteel and Viper too that it's caused a watershed. I don't really want to buy any more carbon knives, got piles of 'em anyway;) Not really enamoured with the patina fetish, it's just rust under a sexy name :D and they need so much regular sharpening/stropping. Of course, my resolve will be tested when GEC puts out another interesting and elegant pattern but it will remain a safe ornament, got enough carbon users anyway.

    This Fox knife is not only light but it's very good in hand, thus it meets the requirements of user pocket-knife

    I have one knife with M390. I haven't used it enough to decide its the best thing since sliced bread, but I agree it sure seems like something worthwhile. I like the Bolus a lot. That Fox looks interesting. Time to do some interweb searching ;)
    The Fox looks great until you put it next to that particular GEC. I just love that winterbottomish orange bone :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Seeing as my Bolus is MIcarta and its Micarta Monday (again? where does the time go? o_O ) I get to post a pic :)

    I'm back to my almost-sequential trio... the 62, 82, and 92. In micarta, of course... I also let a Case 6235 1/2 tag along, but it's appaloosa bone, so it stayed in the pocket for the picture.

    Baby folding hunter @ about 4 inches from Schrade. Folk like these with their $ from what I have seen. This one, however, has had a modded brass linerlock from a full-size hunter cut down and installed and micarta covers. It's mo betta now, but good to begin with. I like that 1095. 1231.jpg

    Thanks, used the GEC as deliberate contrast and it is a looker (and rare bird stainless) also for size reference. But the Fox has a lot of uncluttered minimalist appeal too in my eyes.

    #66 and #82 stockmans starting to age nicely, the HDFK is polished well enough it's indifferent to time so far. No change to match the bolts' wear yet, even, except some scratches on the other side.

    Memorial Micarta Monday. They just did the salute and played Taps while I was playing with the camera.

    Thanks to all the veterans and families with folded flags, here and everywhere. Passed dogs, dads, grandparents, and all who aren't here anymore... Salute.. Thank you for being there.
