    Me too! :confused: :)

    Hey Stuart - yes, bocote, the size on this is perfect for me, fantastic ergonomics as well. It took maybe 5 minutes to address the gritty closing on it, pretty smooth now. Very sharp and thin behind the edge.

    For the last several weeks I've been alternating between these two.
    Buck Creek half congress in stainless and stag:
    Gerber Silver Knight in Gingami 1 stainless treated to 58-59HRC, and resin impregnated wood.

    The Gerber is much the better knife, but the Buck Creek is still fun to carry.

    I won this beautiful knife a few years back in a give away by @black mamba

    Thanks again Jeff! I'm always looking forward to your posts on this forum. Enjoy retirement!

    I never tire of seeing that pinched peanut. A real beauty. It holds its own against all that awesomeness next to it.

    Incredible grain on your bocote, Travman!! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Dazzling duo, Ron, and a great Black Friday idea!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Sounds like fun, SVT! Your 72 looks great with that braided leather lanyard! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Those Thanksgiving traditions are actually outside my experience! :D
    I'm honored that I have that fine scrimshaw to admire every day! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::)

    That's a notable pair of GEC classics, Jak3! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    My Guardian Lambsfoot has a lot of things going for it, I think!! ;):cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Somehow, we ended up with a leftover 12" diameter pumpkin pie, and I agree with your assessment, Tom! :D:thumbsup::thumbsup: (I've been eating mine with a little Hershey's Dark Chocolate Syrup and ReddiWip on it! :p)

    Looks like you've got the "keys to the kingdom" there, Clay. ;) Props to you for taking over for the guy so he could be with family!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:


    They don't call that stuff "spirits" for nothing, FBC; pretty scary! :eek::rolleyes:
    Pretty impressive "instant patina"; I've been carrying my Guardians Lambsfoot constantly, but haven't actually used it yet! :confused::thumbsdown:

    Thanks for the knife compliments, Will. :) And thanks for the geography remarks; I think I've never been north of 47 degrees!

    Thanks for showing that off, Charlie! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I think it's especially fascinating to see what guys who have so much knife goodness to choose from actually carry (and I wonder how they decide).

    Hey, when did you polish up your blade, or am I thinking of another TC you have (had)??

    Looking good, Paul! :thumbsup::thumbsup: Is your knee rehab at the stage where you can help the driver unload, or are you still "supervisor only"?

    Great shot of the massive "feathering" on your Guardians Lambsfoot, r8shell! :cool::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on the retirement, Jeff; sounds like you've definitely earned it!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::) Do you have a special knife to commemorate the occasion? I'll be "done" August 31, and want to get a "special" knife to mark the end of my career. ;)

    I think those are four fantastic folders, even though there's nothing exotic!! :cool::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Good stag looks fabulous whether in small doses like on Harry's knives or in huge servings like Falling_rain's!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Hope you had a good hike, Jack! :thumbsup: I'm always pleased to see the Abbeydale Jack make an appearance! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    GT, I splurged and bought myself an elk #74 Mustang off the exchange last week. Paid about 50% over the original retail, but still worth it for a special knife on a special occasion. I just love GEC's 440C knives.
