    I'd love to hear more about that adventure.:thumbsup:
    I bet that Remington was nice to have in your pocket. That's a great scout!

    They keep getting better and better, Ed!:thumbsup: The pocket wear mellows them out so nice..

    Yeah, I don't know what a traditional name for that blade shape would be, but "modified tanto" doesn't sound very traditional to me (and they call the spearpoint blade a "drop point"). Congrats on the impressive pair you're toting, Jack! Didn't realize you'd had a 2018 BF Buck on the way! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Those are some fine Buck canoes, guys! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Maybe we should start a Buck Canoe Cult! :D

    Churchill was quite the traveller, right? ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: I hope you have a wonderfull trip, Ken! :)

    Your elk rehandle of that Camillus reminds me of this photo of a Spanish stag knife with some dog chews, Jeff. ;):cool:

    The shield on your Bulldog is really interesting, too, Paul! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Probably getting pretty late in the season for beach trips, Ron! :)

    Hope you have fine, favorable fending, Buzz! ;)

    Couple of beauties, Steve!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: May I borrow your time machine sometime?? ;)

    Thanks, Dean. :)

    Hilarious, Dave! :D:D

    Wow, that's something I certainly don't see every day! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: Is that new, Dean?

    Intriguing covers on your new RRs, David! :cool::thumbsup::cool: How big is that stockman?

    Your Battle-Axe gunstock has some VERY handsome stag, Stuart! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Have a great holiday visit, Joshua! :cool::cool::) Your stag pair seems to have handled the trip well! ;)

    Notable pair, Nick!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Lots of features represented in that trio, Jer! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for taking note of my EDC quartet, Jack. :) Congrats on a propitious pair of single bladers! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Not exactly sure what that is, Jeff, but IMHO it's kinda creepy! :eek::rolleyes:

    Intriguing knife, John! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Was it "born" that way, or is it the result of one or more mods?

    You know your Star Trek, John! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Maybe they're related to pinochle, which has a 48-card deck (2 copies of each card 9 thru Ace in each suit); that would fit nicely on 8 dice. (But I have no idea how you'd deal out a hand with dice.)


    They've showed up here now and then, Dennis. ;) (maybe search for "Gandalf" or "Bella" in posts I've made)

    See, that show what I know about Stetsons, Vince! :rolleyes: I thought maybe the AC would help you achieve a fashionable rakish tilt. :D

    Don't send any calendar cash until I get a few more details hammered out, OK, guys? ;)
    These carbon RRs do NOT have coated blades, other than coated at the factory with some kind of oil. Standard mirror finish that is developing a patina with use just like a Case or an old Imperial. Thanks for the car compliments. :)

    I agree with Dennis; great photo and message, Leslie! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I'll fully support the idea of "Sowbelly Sunday"! :thumbsup::thumbsup: Your Cripple Creek looks outstanding! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I always enjoy your comments, Stuart; thanks! :):cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for your info and compliments, Dean. :)

    Thanks, and same to you, Shawn! :) I wish I could have managed to keep some other childhood gifts like Daisy air rifles, Ted Williams baseball gloves from Sears, etc. :(

    Better be careful, John! Sounds like you're really enjoying the experience of trying out a new knife. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: You don't want to fall back into a habit of always looking forward to your next purchase. :)

    Thanks Jack! Simple and classy lambsfoot you have, I like it a lot.

    Thanks Stuart! That Allen slimline is one of my favorite knives, so much so I don’t use it much. I need to get over that and give it more love. Your abalone lockback is exquisite!

    Thank you for the nice words! The midnight stag covers on your Case is real cool, nice swedge on that wharncliffe too. And the TC you’re toting today is probably my fav TC release.

    Thanks GT! Liking your yeller knives!

    Looks like Santa came early to casa Oro, Del. Nice stash.

    Thanks, GT, and I was pleased to see your quotidian quartet posted earlier. I like consistent consistency.

    Thanks for the compliment, Nick. Your slimline has me pawing through piles looking for a slim carry. Stay tuned.

    Papá Noel está loco y los cigarros son geniales, el licor de cuatro rosas es excepcional.

    Maybe one of those questions the consideration of which leads not to edification.

    No chance of that, GT. I would have passed on this year's forum knife if it had not ticked off all the boxes. I knew exactly what I'd be getting and knew it was something I would want to carry and use, and at a great price. I doubt something like that is going to roll around again for me any time soon.

    I do not know for sure. It doesn't have a pattern number, so it may be a mod. If so, you can't tell.

    Almost as well as you apparently :cool:

    Outstanding photos Dwight :thumbsup:

    Stunning scene Buzz, and a great-looking knife :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the kind words my friend :) I'm not sure I'll carry the Forum Knife much, but I wanted to order one to say thanks to @skblades, and I am very grateful for @r8shell's assistance in getting hold of a nice one :thumbsup:

    Can't you take me Dollar before Sterling drops anymore GT?! :confused: :rolleyes: ;) :D :thumbsup:

    Christmas Eve! Wow, doesn't seem like 2 minutes since the last one! :eek: I hope that everyone has a lovely time. I've got friends and family visiting, but not until later (it's not 8.00am here yet). Treating myself to a Double Lambsfoot Day ;) :thumbsup:

    Merry Christmas & New Year to all here!

    The Hare was snapped in the December twilight in the garden in town and is my Christmas card this year.

    The other two are the carry for Christmas Eve.

    Sorry GT, I accidentally snipped this out of my quote above! :rolleyes: Thanks for the info, I went and found your old post about them in the RR thread. They're not available here yet, but I'm sure they will be. A welcome addition :thumbsup:
