    Thank you! There is the wee rivalry between Normandy and Bretagne (little Britain) not only on cider, but on andouille too (Guéménée). Ex wife was half Normand half Briton. She needed no calva to get belligerent and I would not dare and try to match her capacity of drinking! I like both andouilles but could never make it (or my stomach) with home made ultra dry briton cider. :rolleyes:

    Received my RR157 congress knife today. Very pleased with the quality of this knife, it's fit and finish, walk and talk, blade sharpness the lot. I was concerned that its two sheeps-foot blades may be a bit small for practical use and, after watching a review on you-tube, might have been a little on the thin side. I really needn't have worried. This is a sturdy and functional medium sized pocket knife, perfect for everyday carry. It would be churlish to fault this knife for the money it cost.

    I bought a couple of new ones. I saw the Rough Rider gunstock stockman that calamander posted a few days ago and I had to get one! It is a little smaller than I expected, and you can see that mine didn't fully take the dye on a small part of the bone. Besides that, it is excellent! Each blade is hair popping sharp. I had a look around, and it seems like it is the only gunstock stockman knife that is currently easily available. There are some "reverse" gunstocks out there, but I prefer this pattern.

    I've also been looking at the Colt Texas stockman with all its fancy swedges, nail nicks, and blade selection, and decided to go with the buckshot bone version with the main blade etch. This one is bigger than I expected! It is easily the largest stockman knife I own. It is also razor sharp.

    Both knives have the clipped sheepfoot or "coping" blade that I think is pretty cool.

    I ordered a purple smooth bone trapper for mom, the RR1254. The trapper I received however was blue, even though the model number is right for the purple one on the box and knife. So she gave it back to me.

    Now I have my first traditional knife and for less than 10 dollars its a fantastic knife. I was so happy I ordered 8 more trappers and will probably get more in the future. They will serve as secondary knives to my Spydercos.

    I just ran the number generator at work and JD Racing won the whittler. If he contacts me I can ship it right out! I hope you guys had fun playing!

    We have a hurricane situation bubbling up so it might take a big to get the whittler out if I can't do it today.

    This is the nicest China made folder to pass through my hands yet even a little better then my Rough Rider! I've been a long time user of 440A which is what this 17Cr what ever they call is, and I already like it better then that 8Cr stuff I tried from another manufacturer!...

    This large Congress is my favorite RR in my possession. F&F is spot on. I bought it when RR first started up. This was a sales sample showing all the work they could do. It has Black Lip and regular MOP. Match striker pulls. The bolsters are ringed and pinched and there's file work galore.

    It's the same size as my 110. I was able to hand pick it between two others that didn't look as good, and the tan sheath is really nice as well!
