    Stay at home or by chance able to go out, what will be in your pocket? I’ve narrowed it down (hahaha) to fancy, inexpensive, or a combination. D318DFA2-1009-4243-9CF8-5743BEAB016D.jpeg 64A81B7B-1EF2-45C9-91EA-881CCE86858E.jpeg AD8D0C4A-970A-4A53-BADC-004E59D5F370.jpeg

    Based on the "quality" (note quotes) of the cooking lately, in all likelihood ... or at least a vast majority of the likelihoods ... the fowl or turkey will be ... ummm ..." somewhat" ... "over-cooked", and almost as "tender" and as easy to cut (and chew) as a ingot of forged 6-3 Titanium.

    Therefore, I'm switching from Schrade 1095 and "Schrade+" stainless, to D2 and S30V. :) (... may as well switch now ...)

    August, 2020 Brass, S30V, and Ebony Buck Web Special 110, on my belt, and a Marbles MR431 D2 series Sowbelly stockman, in my pocket.

    I'll have my faux/reproduction Cold War Era West German Bundeswehr GAK on a hook by my desk, in the event I need a saw for the fowl bird, or the yams or mashed taters, and/or a spear point for the green beans or Asparagus, depending on which they decide upon.

    It seems possessing "cooking skills" is not a job requirement, for the staffette working the shifts that cooking occurs.

    @Chui @afishhunter Wishing you both a wonderful holiday. Paul it looks like your package is due soon.
    Fish, sounds like you need a full scale tenderizer solution.

    @Old Engineer
    Happy Thanksgiving Harry,. The clip point is a definite user. The teardrop means so much to me that it gets carried safely but used for nothing more than an easy pencil sharpening. Tomorrow is a multi knife day.

    Excellent choice. I didn't post my stag 74 but that's an option too.

    The 1st Thanksgiving was celebrated by Wampanoag (Native Americans) and Pilgrims (recently arrived Europeans) and was followed by 50 years of peace so this might be a suitable combo for the occasion. They seem to compliment each other well. :)

    I've been struggling to decide what to drop in my pocket tomorrow, going down to my parents for dinner. 1606353160005763908318.jpg

    The Douk Douk is my daily driver, I feel kind of weird without it in my pocket. I haven't really taken the BF2020 knife for a spin yet, so it's in the running, but I also really like my Schatt and Morgan gunstock, the mother of pearl shield definitely brings a touch of class to the occasion.

    Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

    I put it to a vote, my girlfriend and daughter both chose the gunstock, my son incidentally chose the carry everything approach... Looks like I'll have the S&M tomorrow, and the viper swayback will be waiting a bit longer. Can't argue with the ladies in the house. :p Especially my daughter... She thinks she runs the show now that we're toilet training.

    (Will use a Buck 121 to carve the turkey, though.)
    Happy Thanksgiving!
