    Taylor, it's the pic of your beautiful lambsfoot that has sent me down another rabbit hole.
    That is a superb looker Gary.

    Thanks. :)

    The only thing that improves a gem like that is it being a gift from a great guy like Paul. :thumbsup:

    Thin, small, pinchable, and wicked sharp.

    If it has Half/Stops the ends of the blades will have Square Corners down at the pivots . If you somehow can knock off the square corners , you can help it some . You are better than pretty good mechanically Joey , I expect that you will figure out how to do that . I have also read that some people have used a Wedge to tap down into the well and spread it out a very , very , small amount to increase the Running Clearance . Some guys have seen where the are some sharp edges on the ends of the blades that are digging into other surfaces in the well . I myself have been most successful in clamping the blades in a wooden vice and just working the heck out of it until it wears in after making sure that the joints were clean and checking out the aforementioned issues . Good Luck my friend .

    Thanks, Harry! I have to do more looking. It might be just pinned too tight. I also think I see a burr on the corners that might be contributing. I'll play with it more when I don't have 10 other projects wanting attention. Or need a free project lol!

    This one tonight. Really enjoy this knife. Mr AL packs a lot of blade into a slim, small chassis here. And love the blade combo that he graciously set me up with. The blades aren't krinked but ground to nest together. It's not perfect. Not relieved so shows some signs. A tiny bit of rub. Nothing that makes it any less a joy to have and use.

    Classic navaja from Albacete, Spain, with polished deer stag, by @ArtesaniaHerreros.

    I’m really liking your pearl shadow knife Stuart. The shadow pattern looks good on most knives and most all cover materials whether natural or man made IMO. I was never really a fan of MOP but after seeing your classy pearl knives every Sunday, I finally own 1 pearl knife and it’s not going to be my last!

    After 5 years thinking I’ve lost it, and carrying almost exclusively a CASE 6308 whitttler and a CASE 6318PU medium stockman, I’m regaining intimacy with my GEC courthouse whittler #620311.
    It’s at the longest I like to EDC at 3 3/4 but is slim and light.
    I’ve reshaped the pen blade for whittling and reground all three to almost zero grind.
    I keep the main blade around 15dps with a fairly coarse working edge and the two small ones polished with low angle(whittling blade lowest)
    I’m getting better edge retention than with case’s 60’s era steel.
