Beautiful fall photo, Jack! (Do you say “Fall” over there? Autumn?)

Thanks Barrett, a few of us were having the Autumn/Fall discussion a couple of weeks back. Both words originally crossed across the pond from England. Fall is older, but went out of use here. I find it a rather charming word, and certainly, if you said it here, folks would know what you meant. I hadn't realised that Autumn was used at all on your side of the pond, but from what the other guys were saying, it's used, but just considered very formal :thumbsup:

I'll contribute, my friend @Prester John. Love the SAK and the 'stros are a great team. Nolan Ryan was an old favorite, who I got to see pitch at a spring training years ago; and Altuve is one of the current best.

The #15 is a tofu and banana slicer, and the Fayette is going with me to the store before the game (Go Sox!).

Didja know Robert Redford was inspired by Ted Williams in his portrayal of Roy Hobbs in "The Natural"? I believe that's why he wore number 9 (a great baseball number anyway).
May the best team win!

I did not know specifically, but made the assumption based upon those similarities, thank you. I used to own an old baseball book that was published when Williams and Bob Feller were two of the up and comers. Wish I could find that (prob'ly in a box somewhere) to reread about the early history of the sport.

Did you know David Price's french bulldog is named Astro? The best teams are playing the ALCS, and may the best one win it all!

Eisenhower pen for me today.
[/QUOTE]

Ever see the knife the Eisenhower was modeled after?

1920 case Pen. Please excuse the color of the lighting, a little too warm. :eek:

Here’s my nearly 1 century old pre-Eisenhower Case Pen knife. Here’s some pics. Notice how thin the secondary blade is and that it still had a swedge ground into it, this blade is like spring steel and paper thin as you can see on some of the pics.

Thanks, Gev!

Cool pic Dean :) :thumbsup:

Thanks, Jack!

I’ve never chased after any of the Northwoods knives, and for the most part, when I see them here, I don’t regret passing on ‘em, but that Presidential is a different story! What a classy looking knife!

Today I’m totin’ a knife that I never expected to have in my pocket: a 2012 PPP TC Barlow in Ebony! :eek: :cool: :D

Thanks for the history on the Case Eisenhower. Yes that secondary blade is super thin! Mine is from 1970 and does not have a swedge on the secondary blade but I noticed the pre 1965 ones do. That’s a beautiful knife you have sir.

That really is a nice looking Barlow Paul !!!!
I had a pretty busy day today requiring me to carry 2 and use 3 . Carried the TEW Lambfoot and the Case Hawkbill and then use the Camillus 4 line when cracking more Hickory Nuts .


Many years ago we cracked the nuts with hammers or rocks . Now I use a vise .

Probably will not run out of nuts this year . These are nuts from 2017 .

Thank you very much Gevo . 2017 was the first year in maybe 10 that we had very many Hickory Nuts . We have at least 10 trees that are old enough to produce nuts . Other people came to pick up some , we cracked a lot , we gave some away , and we probably left half of them for our squirrels too . We have ZERO good Hickory Nuts and very few Acorns this year . Nancy likes to use the nuts in cookies , cakes , and Hickory Nut pie which is just like Pecan pie only better .
Take care my friend .
Harry
