This 2-blade #14 TC is the Bee's knees
Beauty of an old Scout Gev, now in regards to the "Daze" comment, I'm wondering if it's the kind that Matthew McConaughey was in back in 1993
Had to log back in to share these dress socks I was given at Christmas. Shown here with the collector knives round head.
LOL...something about underware When I lived up in the mountains of Colo. in Carbondale...there were these yearly festivals...Summer Daze...Mountain Daze...Carbon Daze
Pena Ti barlow and a little walk in the woods
You have so many nice canoes, @315 !!
Thanks for the kindness concerning my Colt canoe, Paul and Jeff. I'm kicking myself for not having picked up multiple copies of every Colt stag model for under $20 when they were available!
I'm a sucker for any black/red handle pairing, @JTB_5 and @Pàdruig !
Congrats on your latest "Watch Pocket Sunfish", @Travman !! Secondary is a pen blade, right? What did GEC call those covers?
Zesty fish Zulu, Alan!
Jack, I admire both your 2-blade lambsfoot and your ebony version (and the ebony lambs foots of so many others)! I dearly love my rosewood model, but I think my next perambulation into the lambsfoot pasture will have to be an elegant ebony! (And no cracks about "elegant GT" being an oxymoron! )
More acclaimed and admirable lambsfoots!! @strokednbored , does yours have the "pruner" frame with a little extra curve to it? I'm enjoying your "steering wheel series" of portraits of it! @HWF , I dig the stripes on your knife's handles , but I'm not sure if it's ebony or rosewood??
Congrats, @rswanson , I think your stag 78 is almost salacious!!
Thanks for the further scientific reports, Matt! Of course you know I'm going to spend WAY too much time this weekend checking the potential magnetic properties of my knives, starting with my Case chestnut jigged peanut!
Great post, Stuart!! Thanks for the positive feedback on my knives, especially the baby copperhead. And I know what you mean about knife funding. I'm scheduled to retire at the end of August, but I've already agreed to teach one class each semester next school year, at least in part to fund knives and health care!
Thanks for the articulate thoughts on the joys/pleasures of walking. And thanks for sharing that wonderful Wards folder: the "crinkly" bone, the shield, the coined liners, the blade selection combine to leave me awestruck!
Fantastic knife, @ArchiveMoto !! I never noticed the "GEC CAR" on the tang stamp before! Do all the 78s have that stamp?
WW, Jason, that photo blows me away!! The thought that immediately popped into my head when I saw the picture was the melody and first line of an old hymn, "Blest Be the Tie That Binds"!
@jmarston & @Hickory n steel , those are a couple of timeless classics from Case - great photos, too!
Tough to beat a sheep/pen TC IMHO, Paul! Thanks for the explanation (in the Churchill thread, I think) for the "setting" of many of your recent photos; makes a lot of sense! (I just wish I was good enough to step outside for a quick "keeper" shot! I get my old pointNshoot camera warmed up, and then I typically take a half dozen shots to get one "sort of keeper". That's a cold prospect in the winter if I have a box of Rough Riders come in. )
Thanks for the pro photo tip, Alan!
Thanks for the story, @Zieg ! I'm no hiker and never heard of this Fletcher guy, but I like "informal" walking to and from work, church, etc. and found the story fascinating!
That's one of the things I like about you, Ron: you're almost always a happy camper! The jigging on your Norfolk is rapturous!
Remarkable Russell, Wayne!
@hamsco , that's a glorious Swayback Gent!!
Superb pairing, Taylor!
That's a splendid Case canoe you picked up recently, @peanutsxx !!
Iconic, impressive Ankermesser, @HFinn !!
I don't think I've posted my Watch Pocket Knife of the Week yet, a Hen & Rooster green pick bone mini canoe (thanks, Will):
My "Free Choice" Knife of the Week is a Chinese Schrade 89OT:
Thanks, GT! That green on your canoe looks like British racing green (one of my favorites).
Posted my "old tan" TC yesterday, so I decided to break out it's mate today. Not sure what the bone is on this one, old yellow bone? Definately a more rusty red cast to it though.
Man, I gotta look to find some more barlows to carry. The ones posted are excellent. Anywho, I picked out something different to carry today. I have two of these, so I need to give at least one of them some sunshine. I was born while we were stationed at Ft. Campbell, KY and my dad was shipping out to Korea (a hint to my age), so I have an affection for the Bluegrass State. This Case Kentucky Centennial sodbuster jr. celebrates the 1874-1974 centennial, but was actually produced in 1975. I plan to carry it to share with my buddies during our regular Friday glass-raising session this afternoon. I will also carry its younger brother, a Case SBJ from 1978, and their Country Cousin by Queen from 1978 (the "patina" on the Queen is actually a shadow of yours truly) in case serious cutting duties arise. You never know when a cigar demands trimming.
Beauty, Paul! That one looks like it would age VERY gracefully.
Thank you, friend. And early congratulations on your future retirement (good funding plan, too). That curvaceous canoe is captivating, but I am intrigued by your Schrade and its blade selection. That would be a handy companion for a bird and small game hunter. Thanks for showing it.
I have had my mail with held for a few weeks so I went by the post office today to retrieve the loot. The lineman’s knife is a case tested that is mechanically sound but has got a lot of the red stuff on it. The 78s I’ve just handled briefly but seem to be as good as what I’ve been reading about them. Good day
Cocobolo Willamette Whittler:
Same old, same old.
I am excited too, my friend. Though I do not look forward to the shark frenzy, all a lad can do is give it his best shot right? I expressed my anxiety this morning to my wife and she just rolled her eyes and smiled. First world problems, right?
A fine example you have there, that matchstrike pull really sets the whole package off, doesn't it?
I will be the first to admit that though I like jigged bone, it is usually not my first choice, especially when wood options are available. That being said, the jigging on those TCs is phenomenal! A very striking pair, you showcase them beautifully in your pictures.
Beautiful Ram's Horn! Mine should be arriving tomorrow and I am eagerly awaiting the surprise. Will it be light, dark, golden, mixed? One way or the others, it will be amazing, I am sure.
Thank you! It certainly does photograph well, doesn't it?
Only the very best, my friend!
Always an exceptionally solid choice.
A fantastic picture, Will! Stunning really.
Blacks and reds have become a fast and firm favorite, GT. I am happy you appreciate the combo as well.
Congratulations on your upcoming retirement! What will you ever do with all the extra time? There is always more cutlery to be had!
I am carrying this dark duo today.

It is so good to see these beauties again, Wayne. Please stay on this Barlow jag!
I'm carrying some of my older ones as well. I do not have the breadth or quality that you do, but they are fun to carry!
@Pàdruig a truly diabolical duo are your ebony pair.
In case someone out there isn't sick of seeing the new 78's...
