    I thought that returning from vacation needs bit more hard working knife.


    Old pic, but same knife. The blade got bit patina and scratches now from use and carry.

    Thanks GT. I twas a gift from JB the first time we met. I too love the chequered covers. The pattern too is so pocket friendly and nice and slim. It came in a neat presentation sleeve and tin.

    The background on the later post is indeed made up of rasps & files. Top is a Sandvik 'Farmers Own', a Japanese hand-cut '4-in-hand', a British hand-cut '4-in-hand' & an old unknown second cut file that has seen better days.

    The Farmers Own is superb for restoring, sharpening & maintaining edged tools, particularly axes.

    I love the '4 in hand' as a tool. It has helped shape many a knife handle...and shall hopefully be doing again very soon.


    I'm going light today with my Case Peanut.

    What a gorgeous blade!

    Beautiful saddlehorns. Love the engraving.

    Unfortunately I was in a rush to get out the door this morning and didn't put a knife in my pocket...feeling kind of naked.

    Been MIA for a couple of days. So many beauties here it's almost hard to believe. Most importantly, hope each day has brightness for Bob.

    Thanks Scruffuk. It's actually a 77. The loaf is a four pound miche, so big that it dwarfs the Yankee Jack.

    Wow, that's awesome 👍

    I still don't have anything special, but no matter what I switch it up to I still end up back to my imperial jackmaster
