    I like it quite a bit.
    It lacks the heft I'm used to with my original 110, but that's okay because it's a nice change of pace for a knife this size to actually work well for pocket carry.

    I missed Armed Forces Day (May 18th). Thanks, @RDaneel for reminding me (my paternal grandfather, WWI; my father, WWII, Korea, Vietnam; and my stepfather, Korea, are frowning down on me). So I'm totin' this Parker IMAI K-236 double lockback (similar to a Case Texas Lockhorn, designed by Tom Hart) with SPECIAL FORCES etch, in particular honor of my father, who was in the first class of Army Special Forces members at now-closed Flint Kaserne, Bad Tölz, Bavaria, Germany (when they had to buy their own berets).

    Thanks GT, your quartet seems to have you prepared for anything. No I haven't used the new system on that particular scout just yet. The previous owner had a ................ unique approach to sharpening. I think I will need to even the main blade out with a file first :).


    Thanks Alan and GT, yes the Blues were last in the league on January 3rd, and have gone on an epic run. Since clearly my knife pairing is the source of their luck :), I’ll be carrying only these 3 until they lose a game.

    Anyone know what differentiates a rescue and a recovery? The items or individuals being retrieved in a rescue are still alive. Al Warren joining me today for a recovery of the wife's car. I can build cars but the hybrid stuff is outta my knowledge range.

    Thank you, Gary!

    That is a quality quartet to carry, Gary. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That is an excellent pair to commemorate your military heritage, Stuart! My father was also in WWII; his three sons served in the Navy, Air Force and Army.

    Always liked a Green knife and that Green Burlap fixed is a grand example and a tribute too!

    Thanks, Will

    I sometimes use it ("awesome") incorrectly, too, as an inside joke to myself. ;)

    EDIT: I forgot my comment to cigarrodog's picture!

    A mutual friend,@Old Engineer, tells me you are not that far east of where I am, so next year, we will pressure and cajole ( not cudgel, just cajole) you to join us at the Badger Knife Show. Whereupon and whence you could oblige me by bringing this old TEW for me to fondle a bit.;)

    You could use the more accurate and literal version , “that is awe inspiring!”

    Part of becoming an old curmudgeon is never letting a teaching moment go to waste.
