Another picture after dark. This is what I carried today.
Now you're talkin'.
Those are some beauties Stuart !
66s are sweet and that one is a keeper
I've been carrying my Glennbad creation I have posted previously over the past week. It has since been given an upgrade by Mark @Ramrodmb. After seeing his fantastic job of adding the swage to his 2018 bladeforums sheepfoot blade I asked him if he would add one to the rather dull looking blade of my Camillus. He so kindly accepted and did a GREAT job on it. I think it gave the knife the little something it needed to complete it. It never really dawned on me until after I received the knife back from Glenn that the blade just did not complement the beautiful work that Glenn had performed on the knife itself. The first picture below is the before picture with an example of what I was thinking about. He exceeded my expectations. Thank you Mark!!!!
Thank you Gev. It is dynamite, isn't it!!!
It is indeed !!!
Unusual blades on that sowbelly, but I like it!
That would be sweet, but any white/light-colored knife is an acceptable second choice to make a "piano keys combo", Vince.
Steve, if you track down ONE nice one, I'd call that "lucky"; if you track down as many as you have, I'd call that "skill".
Cool photo of your stockman and church notes, Ken! (My wife keeps a notebook like that, but she illustrates the margins with sketches of weeds, flowers, trees, etc. I'm not sure she devotes ALL her attention to the pastor's sermon. )
Jack, your 2018 Guardians ebony lambsfoot and your acrylic #85 are a dyad of substantial knives!
Dwight & Ron, you're obviously advocates of the "go big or go home" school of thought!!
Birthday greetings to your father, Gev!!
Thanks for the color info, Dylan. I don't think I consciously take color into consideration when planning knife purchases.
Looks better every time, Taylor!
Thanks for the "review", sir. Sure looks good paired with that SBJr!!
Glad you're handling the storm OK, Tom (3 hr commute seems excessive ). Your stag bone SBJr sure is a beauty, and looks good with everything!
Congrats on the thoughtful gifts, David! The Porch sure is "a shelter from the storm" in so many ways!
Congrats on that new Case, Paul! @Travman, yours is also handsome as heck!! Is that model called a whaler? Sure like its solid simplicity!
"Too many teardrops for one heart to be crying."
Outstanding trio, Dee!
Peerless profile for a stockman, @Dschal!!
Sorry to hear you lost such a fine knife that way, Nick. Congrats on the new #66; pairs perfectly with your #78!
Thanks for the etch confirmation and for the peanut props, Stuart. Lot of snow for one serving. I try to "work out" and stay in shape, but almost 5 hours of shoveling would bust my buttons!
I admire your commitment to your ebony boy's knife and AC as a carry combination, Vince!! They're a winning pair, no doubt!
Alox of the Week for me is a Vic Money Clip in smooth black Alox:
non-Alox SAK this week is a Vic Recruit (thanks, Greg):
Stockman of the Week is a Colt "black stag" sowbelly:
Lambsfoot of the Week is Lam Jack, my 2017 Guardians horn lambsfoot (thanks, @mrknife):
Most kind of you, my friend ! I will tell him. Thank you for your kindness !
Your Guardian and slip are divine !!
Carried this Remington today ;
And this little TWINS in Stag
My 1982 Schrade Scrimshaw stockman.
Incredibly fine Grand Daddy seventies Stuart! Mirrored Magnificent Marvels!!!!!!
Absolutely stunning knife Jerome and yes the blade enhancement is perfect. Well done Glenn and Mark!!
@5K Qs - Gt your carved little man is quite good my friend! You've got skills. Lamb Jack is looking very nice too.
Very NICE Jerome
I went back to a 110 and Stockman.
Thanks guys! Yes Gev, this one is staying for sure. It’s very pocketable with the pinched bolsters and slender frame. Compared to the 78, it’s just a little shorter but at the same time it feels more beefy with the 2 springs. Gary, I was flying out of Little Rock AR, was late and rushing for my flight. I forgot it was in my pocket and had already checked in my luggage then. I wanted to run back out to have the airline ground staff mail it to me but would have missed my flight, I should’ve just gotten on the next flight! It was a very solid and well built knife. Probably my best built Case knife I ever had and is also the same age as I am. I do like the older ones better with the swedge though. Gonna have to hunt down one!
Thanks pal, nice patina on your Lam Jack
I'm carrying these two today, my A.Wright Rosewood Big 'Un, and a BSA knife I won in @abbydaddy 's fraternal memorial giveaway a couple of year's back
