    Not totin, just lookin...

    @tmd_87 , those knives look amazing. I cannot believe I did not get one of those jigged bone 78's. It really is a strong contender for the nicest of an incredibly nice run.

    Another long day in the darkroom. Opened a new box of paper with the coping blade, and burned through a bunch of it.

    Same here...I got into backpacking in the 70s and The Complete Walker was my bible. I even found a store near me that sold Mint Cake!

    With the second release of the lionSTEEL Roundhead here, this week I carried my Ram’s Horn from last year’s run.
    This is really a fantastic knife. Butter-smooth pull and solid lockup, beautiful clean lines and plenty of blade...what’s not to like?

    Nope, not stainless. That picture was taken when it was brand new, before the patina started.

    That really is a nice one. It's interesting to see the quality of the department store brands, nothing like the cheap junk that they carry today if they have knives at all.

    Thank you very much. I found no good reason for the knife not being carried more often:eek::)

    The reason, I reckon, is the superabundance :p of equally appealing knives vying for the chance to be carried. Or it could be, not enough pockets. ;)
    This is a good problem to have Paul. :) :thumbsup:

    Michael, first off, thank you for the compliment and a new word...superabundance, one that I will work into conversation tomorrow somewhere along the line:D I feel it's new, as spell check tries to separate into (super abundance):thumbsup::)
