    Gorgeous bone, Barrett!

    Nice, Gev! :thumbup: Oh, and those knife thingies are pretty cool, too! (especially Mark's masterpiece)

    I've carried my favorite for the last two days.


    And as a point of interest, I came across this Osage Orange tree yesterday. I talked to a wood worker while at this tree; he mentioned how hard the wood is and difficult to work.

    Brett, nice looking fixed blade... it reminds me of a Humphrey Brute de Forge, but--though I'm not certain--made of thinner stock. Can you tell a little more about it? Very nice.

    Appreciate that my friend. It is the first knife I bought off the exchange and the one that kept me hanging around.

    Forged from 3/32 52100 steel
    Stabilized ash burl handle
    Overall length: 7 3/8 inches
    Blade: 3 1/2 inches
    Twisted Lanyard

    Cheers Jack. If the ones I handpicked are representative of Wright's recent output, this bodes well for them, I think. The C70 carbon bladesteel takes a good keen edge, and dabbing a tiny amount of 1 micron diamond lapping paste with a syringe into some of the action areas and working it open and closed a few times, smoothed out the feel of the walk 'n' talk nicely.

    I'm very happy with them. The ebony Lambsfoot is with me today.

    The knife is nice, but please tell me about the hat!

    Nice TC.

    Osage is easier to work with when it is first cut or you have good sharp tools.

    I agree, that hat looks like it's got some stories to tell.

    A piece of Candy, Dean! I see why it deserves your pocket :D and affection. A venerable old tree and thanks for the look.

    A fine pair indeed!

    I always enjoy seeing your Drew, Brett. A fine edc for certain. I love its old world look.


    Where is Harry today ?

    Thanks my friend... indeed it is a sweet knife. Just the perfect size to make daily cutting tasks little pleasures!

    SVTFreak and freekboi, thanks! The hat is a Dorfman Pacific, waxed cotton and though it came a little weathered, I have worn it on every hike, in every rainstorm, it has been to the mountains and high desert, and has held up great. It also still smells a little like 60 pounds of roast pork:
