    Here's a memory for you, @Prester John!
    Big time Pittsburgh fan here. My dad took me and my cousins to at least one game in that series. I was 10 years old.

    That is so cool! I see Bill Mazeroski's signature there--the guy that made the Yankees cry! At least some of them did. I am a Yankees fan, but I love the game more. My favorite players in the '60s were Willie Mays with the Giants and Joe Torre with the Cardinals. Loved the Mick too, and Roberto Clemente was up there. Koufax, of course. Lot of great players then. That's when Nolan Ryan and Pete Rose started, too. Anyway great souvenir.
    Beautiful stag on that knife.

    My memory might be playing tricks with me but my uncle lived in Monroeville in the 60s and one of the Pirates lived across the street. I'm pretty sure it was Maz. Whomever it was, I met once.
    I've lived in Central NY, for the most part, since I was 11 years old. I'm always torn when a NY team plays a Pittsburgh team.

    Guardian 3, M390, flat ground and the stonewashed finish I think. Not great for pocket carry but it out-slices all my other pocket friendly fixed blades by a mile.

    Thanks for that, GT!
    So, am I correct assuming that Max Carey or Reb Russell must have hit this ball? They were the only 2 with HR's in that game? Is there a way to find out who hit the last HR in the 9th? Anyone who can decipher all those stats?
    Knife content:)

    That says it all right there. I'm a big Seahawks fan, but I enjoy watching all the teams and just want to see good games.

    Thanks! It doesn't look pocket friendly. Id belt carry it. I love that blade shape for use. I may have to look into one

    Cleaned up the bolsters some today and hand sharpened in a swedge on the opposite side to help get that point a tad pointier :)

    My other knives come and go on rotation but this one has faithfully stayed with me. It’s been either this Weck along with another knife or just by itself. Today it’s just this one Weck by itself again.
