    Thanks very much :thumbsup: I've had a CASE Swayback Jack in Chestnut cv and a Bermuda Green one in stainless , both I gave away so I'm used to the pattern. I also have a creme brûlée Damascus Gent still. I really wanted this single blade in Chestnut cv and it has exceeded expectations in terms of F&F, just outstanding. The size/proportion is spot on, despite being compact it does not have the toy or fiddly feel some small knives can exude;) A wonderful addition, can't say more!:D

    Thanks again Stuart! :) It’s nice to know those sad, pleading eyes work on someone! ;) :p

    Thanks Gev! :)

    Thanks Gary! :) Be careful shoveling all that snow my friend! I know your in great shape from Totin all those knives everyday, but they say that shoveling snow can be an extreme cardio workout! :D

    A terrific trio today, Dylan.

    A good knife made into a great knife. Congrats, Dwight, that @glennbad is one bad dude.

    Thanks, Jack, for the kind words and for the soothing picture of that lovely knife.

    Joni Mitchell would be pleased (or should be) with your clever rendering, GT

    All of those totes are nice, but this one caught my eye.

    No, but I know how to admire them. Fine old Dog Head, Leslie.

    You are very kind, Nick (and transparent). That Böker is bonkers, bud.

    - Stuart

    Thanks, Jack! For not knowing what you put in your pocket, you picked a great one. :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Gary! You've a fine quintet of cutlery today. My two favorites are the Alox Classic and the Case Canoe with the Canoe etch on the blade. :thumbsup:

    I haven’t been online in quite awhile, but now I have a few days off due to the brutal midwestern cold. I have a lot of catching up to do. I’ve got last year’s forum knife with me today.

    For Thursday, I think I will go with two of my favorites: stag knives from centuries' old cutlery centers from two of the greatest nations the world has ever known.

    From Sheffield, England, a Sambar stag lambsfoot from A. Wright & Son, via @Jack Black:
    [​IMG]

    And from Albacete, Spain, a classic folding knife with polished stag from @ArtesaniaHerreros:

    Both were handmade by skilled artisans, and are a joy to handle.
