    That's a great connection to a valuable piece of history. Really good people finally got on board with saving her. Most decorated battleship of WW2, she deserves the honor. Even more so the men who earned those decorations for her. I once read that during one mission while providing protection for USS Enterprise she was pouring out so much anti-aircraft fire, the Enterprise radioed the Carolina to ask if they was on fire:eek: 0826181236.jpg Some fitting knife content, Camillus navy utility knife( with new whitetail deer antler covers)

    I carried this Ka-Lok today. Rosewood covers; it's a very nice little pocket pal. I haven't carried it much because it's been in storage for some time. About 2-1/2" blade. Don't see many of them now.

    Words of wisdom.
    I've carried a serious pocket knife since I was 10. I had a cheapie little single blade pen knife before that. My Dad still has it in his knife box. A little brass handled thing with red enamel, had gym equipment embossed on it. That was the "trial knife" to see if I'd loose it, break it or such. Then I graduated to a Vic camper. To this day I simply cannot fathom how anyone makes through a day without at least a pen knife.

    My very first Case knife was a 11031SH. I acquired it after I joined the forums here, now I have a couple of them, one from 69 and the other from 71 (I believe). Both just fantastic knives and ones I am very pleased to own. You both certainly have a couple of beauties there.

    Now those are some real beauties, Stuart! Stunning!

    I'm afraid I am a bit vain in that regard, GT. Having somewhat of an "artist's eye", color is rather meaningful to me and I certainly have my favorites. On the other hand, I still remain in somewhat of an experimental phase in my knife collecting so I am not adverse to trying out colors that ordinarily wouldn't appeal to me.

    I applaud your good taste in knives AND guitars, my friend. Though I am more of a Martin guy myself, Taylor certainly does make a fine guitar.

    Hmmmm... That little Barlow is quite nice. I could forgive the small shield on that one.

    I paid for a new knife yesterday and got it in the mail today. I've never had such speedy shipping! Probably helps that the seller lives in the next town over (unbeknownst to me).

    I got an intriguing new Sowbelly (many thanks to @flatblackcapo for the heads up), a Moore Maker with 3 blades. Curiously, it has two clips (different styles) and a spey. Now, I am not a big spey blade fan but it largely comes down to its aesthetics versus its functionality. What I find rather remarkable is that regardless of which blade you are using, they all sit low enough to not be uncomfortable in hand.

    A very comfortable knife with beautifully ground blades and nice thin edges and yes, clad in red bone... This knife has me smitten for sure.

    That's a true beauty. Perfect blade setup too, clip behind pen.
