    @rswanson I've only been posting on this thread ("sitting on the Porch") for about 5 months, but this is an unusually mellow and welcoming group of folks. I feel like I've been here much longer (and it may seem even longer to those who have to suffer through my ramblings) and have come to enjoy the cordiality. There is much knowledge to be gathered here if you ask/listen. That's why I came here, and have been greatly rewarded. As to the waxing and waning of interest in traditional knives, I (and maybe a bunch of others here) am stubbornly persistent in my affection for the craftsmanship that goes into producing these knives, now and in the past, and their utility. The history of knife making seems to be strewn with busted businesses and lost dreams/foolish ventures, yet here we are with several thriving traditional makers, large and small. (Small knife makers seem to be spreading like craft breweries - and there's nothing wrong with that.) Which is to say - welcome.

    I am posting early for Stag Saturday (Stagurday?), as I will be away rabbit hunting during the day. I will be carrying these, plus a pair of shears that don't qualify for posting. Will check back in on Sunday.

    A Unimart (Solingen) hunter that I received from the family of an old hunting buddy after he passed at age 88. (I got his sharpening stones, too.)

    This more rare,silver, ribbed old style two blade cadet was carried throughout Africa by my wife, although it looks like she rarely used it. It is in my collection now!

    Stuart, thanks for the note. I agree wholeheartedly- this is an odd corner of the internet where kind words and generosity are the words of the day. When I said I felt out of place, it was to mean that some folks have been participating for so long it can feel like you've walked in on the tail end of a lengthy conversation and have much catching up to do. But there's no shortage of help to be found here. Now, sorry for my "inane ramblings", back to the knives! My carry today, older photo:
