    I'm the same way about a guy's work truck. If the interior of his/her panel truck or work body is in order, I'm OK; if it's in disarray, I'm dismissive.

    I'm gobsmacked, but glad that you shared it. Nice solid knife, Steve. (OK, ditch those old relics that you have been showing. I'll get my address to you somehow, sometime.)

    More's the pity, Alan, but welcome back to Shiverville.

    Well, @SteveC is having a catharsis, it seems, but once I get his soon-to-be-neglected mother lode, you and I will be rollin'!

    Man, that's nice, Dave. Just really nice!

    Amen, brother. Other than they awkwardly ask,"Anyone have a knife?" I, then, say, "Why, you don't?" and offer to do whatever cutting is needed. Or go to my truck and get an inexpensive "truck knife" and loan/give it to them. With my condolences.

    We'll, you are fitted out properly (and handsomely).

    All three are gems, Harry, but I am drawn to the smooth bone Case. That's pretty special.

    Thanks, Dylan, and ditto for your Moore Maker "wild hogbelly". That looks like a fanciful cross between a feral hog and a moose. It is a cutting machine.

    Wooden wonders, Joshua.

    That's so soothingly smooth, Paul. Thanks for sharing it and its comforting qualities.

    - Stuart

    Yes I redid them myself, the originals was badly shrunk and warped. If they was celluloid it didn't cause corrosion thank goodness. The ones I made are epoxied on, so far so good. The antler was from a small 4 point skeleton I found beside the rail road,they were well beached from the sun. I had saved them about 3 years to use on the "right project" lol

    My mother in law got me a case medium stockman two xmas’s ago. At first I carried the knife here and there and put it back in the drawer.

    But for the last few weeks I have carried it and nothing else. Mostly to see if that was all I needed. And sure enough, it’s been perfect. I cannot say that i needed more knife than what it does for me. I think it has made me realize how wrapped up we get in needing the biggest, full Ti, super steel knife we can find. When in reality a nice well thought out slip joint will do everything you need.

    Now with that being said.....I just picked up a case trapper in cv and amber bone. I’ve always wanted one of them. Funny thing is...... after a few weeks with the stockman, my first reaction when I opened up the trapper was that it was HUGE.... hahaha this coming from a guy who used to edc a praetorian and a military, and other huge knives.

    Thanks Dylan, I really like the BIG sheepfoot blade, the knife has a solid snap and is a thin, easy to carry knife:thumbsup:

    Thanks John, I really like the blade set up as well, it's one of my favorites:)

    Thanks as well Stuart, it has sat neglected in a knife roll and thought it would be better off in my pocket;):)

    Still dragging around the SAK Huntsman in a belt case and the Wenger Patriot or Buck 303. Whichever comes out of the drawer first

    Back to these two:
    Although I love multi-bladed knives, it seems my current favorites are single bladers.

    @Misplaced Hillbilly ~ nice work with the roadkill antlers! Next time, try to get to it quick enough. I still have some roadkill venison in the freezer.:D

    Same here. Growing up, it was always stockmans.
    Now, I just love the way single blade or just single springs carry!

    Really liking the stainless. I wish it was a spear point, but I’m a big fan either way.

    International Knife of the Week is an inexpensive Chinese Laguiole I bought in Denia, Spain and actually enjoy quite a lot:
