    Thanks, Ron! Isn't she sharp? And I do mean in both senses - I've got the edge so keen she'll slice paper towel.

    Many thanks, Jack. I did not start posting in earnest until this past August and I easily realize that, by the standards set by stalwarts of this thread, I am a piker, if not a pissant. However, if I show up every day, apply myself and do an honest day's work that Porch pension will start piling up and, then, begin pouring out.

    It looks like everyone is carrying their Sunday best today; so many pages of beauty! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I'm carrying my CSC forum knife today (probably tomorrow, too). It is hard to let this one lay around.

    Nitrogen Ice Cream and Northwoods.


    I haven’t changed this knife, because I felt it brought me luck. I found me a female GSD puppy that passed its teperment test - first litter I looked at domestically. Usually I go through 10-20 liters, before I find the one. I’m keeping it on me, until she comes home on Saturday.

    If you haven’t tried Nitrogen Ice Cream it’s super cool - pun intended. :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for showing the lucky knife and congrats on the GSD (though I lean more towards the GSPs for my bird hunting addiction). The picture is sweet (pun unavoidable).

    Splendid stag Churchill, Jeff! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Superb stag on your uniquely-shaped whittler, Stuart! :thumbsup::cool:

    Good things come in threes, Will! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: I'm usually quite partial to stag and horn, but in your trio, the jigged bone is the real standout for me!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Cool Colonial stockman, deltaboy!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Peerless stag pair, Harry! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Different strokes for different folks, but to me the stag on your Henckels is tough to beat! ;)

    Steve, your Camillus is stone-cold awesome! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Terrific twosome, Jack; fantastic to see the award-winning Abbeydale Jack again! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    That's a pretty obscure reference, but I LIKE it! :D:D (That is, if I actually "get" it. :rolleyes:)

    The meal looks tasty and nutritious, and so does the Barlow, for that matter! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Another great shot of your Viper, Joshua. :cool::thumbsup::cool: I have several red oak trees in my yard, and seem to rake almost as much in the spring as in the fall! :eek::(

    Nice, and nostalgic!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Ron. :) I'm impressed that you even remember my stag senator, since I don't carry it very often! :cool::thumbsup:

    I'll accept your prognosis, Dean! :D

    Peachy peanut!! :cool::thumbsup:

    I appreciate your concern and your experience, but you're probably made of much sterner stuff than me when it comes to knives! :rolleyes: Couple of first-class folders for you! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    :D:D Good one!


    Thanks for the info, Stuart. :):thumbsup::thumbsup: I did some checking on BF, and I think most of my Olsen sightings must have been of your knife!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    For sure! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Mike! :)

    Outstanding!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Handsome pair for the home front, Jack! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Yowza, that pair is pretty overwhelming, Ron! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Jack. :) Hope tonight is much more restful for you; either of your maladies is bad enough, but both sounds awful! :eek::thumbsdown:

    Thanks for the kind words, @peanutsxx.:)

    Love the French ivory covers, and the pup! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the kind words. This is my favorite knife, a half Congress from my childhood. She was well used when I got her.

    Spent some great time today at this place in Michigan
    Had these in my pocket again today.
    We saw some unbelievable cars and some of the evolution in the designs of the Automobile .
    Pierce Arrow
    Pontiac GTO
    Phone's battery was dieing and had to take too few pictures .
    It is a great place to visit if you are ever in the area especially if you have some interest in mechanical things and or cars .

    The wife's starter crapped out on her Honda so the 77 spear got to help a bit in the recovery and repair. On a side note, shout out to those Japanese engineers for putting the starter in the most inaccessible place possible behind th intake manifold, it was a real pleasure having to disassemble half of this tiny motor to do one simple task.

    Thanks everyone, the quality choice goes to the dealer. I entrusted him to pick it out with only a little input from me:thumbsup:

    Here's the pile side Harry:)

    I have been carrying this one around now exclusively since I got it. In the past I would seem to always go back to my Queen Copper head or the S&M Gunstock that I have. They do not have the fit and finish of GEC but they always seem to make it back into my pocket.

    That is not happening with the 78 American Jack. It may have found a permanent home in my pocket.

    My custom shop buck 110, walnut handles, finger grooves, domed pins, nickle silver bolsters, and s30v blade just showed up. I'll be carrying that for a while, though in the leather belt sheath that came with it.

    My intention was birds since it's the season ..so the long lens it was. And of course a cattle knife. A Curtain & Clark in ebony, since the weather was wet and overcast...perfect :D


    Its always good luck to see a large flock of birds making waves through the sky


    All along every watch tower




    Shadows across the land


    Sioux spirits ;)
