    That IS a perfect Christmas pair, Ace! ;):thumbsup:

    Handsome knife, Harry! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Don't you have a cane you made with a buffalo nickel inlaid in it? That would be great to match with the knife. ;)

    Your complimentary comments are an appreciated Christmas gift, Stuart! :cool::thumbsup:;)

    Thanks, Dennis. :) I didn't think I was a fan of red covers on a knife, except for SAKs, but I certainly like the shade of red on my RR! :cool::thumbsup:

    Gödel would probably beg to differ. :rolleyes: Thanks for responding with vocabulary that my college German from over 45 years ago could comprehend (without an online translator). :thumbsup:

    I had to go online to look up the episode involving a Medusan ambassador and his blind telepathic interpreter.

    I appreciated being able to "eavesdrop" on your assessment of toothpick pattern, Stuart! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I tend to favor the big 2-blade models (but not with a fish scaler as the secondary blade).

    Same to you and yours, Ken! :):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Paul. :)

    :D:D:thumbsup: Good episode! Didn't Bones' Southern accident get stronger the longer he was "under the influence"?

    Texas doesn't even have a REAL shape, like Italy. But look at Michigan - now THERE is a shapely state!! :D:thumbsup:;)

    What-a-Christmas-Trio, Jack! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: They're all very wintery in color! :cool::cool:

    Couple of fine knives, and the Sword of the Spirit, Jeff - you're well-armed!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Bailed non-SAK this week is a Marbles "demo knife" replica:

    Big Knife this week is a Case slimline trapper (thanks, Tom):

    Miscellaneous Knife of the Week is a Rough Rider Barlow:

    If you say so, Gary. Can't recall the shape. Isn't it cut in half by one of them big lakes? ;)
    Anyway, betcha no one but Michiganders would recognize Michigan, but the whole world knows Texas. Not that I'm bragging. :)
    Merry Christmas, Pardner!

    Nice Christmas story here. My Brother in Law was given this Colonial Ranger Stockman in 1976 by his Grandfather. He remembers that they bought the knife at the Circle J Cafe in Talihina, Oklahoma. He knows I collect knives, so he cleaned it up and replaced the plastic scales with Tiger Wood and gave it to me as a present. I sharpened it, oiled it, and put it in my pocket. A very interesting and well built knife ready for another few decades!

    Merry Christmas everyone! I hope 2019 brings us all lots of nice knives! (Who am I kidding, of course it will. As long as our bank accounts hold out!)

    Thank you kind sir! Yes at 3 1/8”, it disappears in the pocket. Your new Fight’n Rooster whittler is down right beautiful!!! Most of the stag covers I’ve seen on FR’s have a pronounced shoulder that’s left a little too high where the stag meets the bolsters, if you know what I mean, and I don’t really dig it but yours is perfect with the bark ramming straight into the bolsters!
