Ace pic David :cool: :thumbsup:



Yes, none of my friends suggested bringing a libel action :rolleyes: ;) :thumbsup:



I did! :D It was actually coupled with a genuine compliment :)



I might have to save that one for the 'book' Dean, it's rather long and complicated :thumbsup:



Very classy Gary, is that a Loveless pattern? :thumbsup:





Great Lambsfoot pics guys :) :thumsup:

I've been carrying this one again today :thumbsup:

I think it's Bob Dozier's take on the Arkansas Toothpick pattern, that was likely a much bigger knife.

It's similar to the Loveless New York Special that is a Bob Loveless pattern. The blade is pretty much the same. The handle contours are different.

I read that some attribute the original Arkansas Toothpick pattern to an 1800s American blacksmith named James Black. Any relation?:):thumbsup:

Still catching up!

Dynamite duo of trappers, Stuart! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: (Has anyone ever found an undesirable Black Box Winchester??)

Superb Sabre, Stuart, and salutary service to your late friend's family! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool::cool:

Loving the long, sweeping clip-point on that fishtail... Bowie-like... :thumbsup:

Great post Stuart. Thanks for sharing it.

Plaudits for helping out, Stuart, and congrats on the priceless keepsakes! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

I love seeing that Jarrett Fleming of yours!

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

Cool knives, Stuart
:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks to all y'all.

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.

Thanks, Dean, and thanks to you, your brothers, and your father for your service. I had a cup of coffee with the Army beginning in the summer of 1972 at Ft. Bragg, NC. I didn't see any action, except for watching MPs round up 11-Bravos in downtown Fayette-nam.

I'm totin' two cousins on this Twosday: a Böker 9023 equal end jack and a Primble 5733 senator pen (also an equal end), both 3 1/8" with sunk joints and from around the same period, early 1960s for the Böker and 1940-1968 for the Primble. Oh, and the Primble is Böker-made.

The Primble does have a bit of fancy work - the backs of the brass liners are coined.

Thanks for the info Gary :) I've heard of James Black, but not a relation so far as I know :D :thumbsup:

Lol Fayette-nam, I gotta remember that, I just pulled a 16 foot trailer through there this evening, traffic was white knuckle. Unfortunately gang violence is getting bad down there,so my boss says

Tulips blooming in my neighbor's front yard... for some reason it inspired me to carry my red cadet.
I am not sure why... may be because of the colors or because Holland is closer to Switzerland than Ontario ? :)
Then on our afternoon walk my wife and I came upon this beautiful Trillium flowers, the symbol for Ontario.
How does all of this relates together ? ... I don't have a clue :)
