    It's a picture of a hat and hunting vest and coat with 3 Lab puppies in the pockets hanging on a wall. Part of a "Nostalgic Art" series. Theres one Called "Ten point buck" that I'd like to find on the same knife as this. Of course it's a pic of a whitetail buck.

    A little 3"closed serpentine Schrade Walden Jack, solid with no play whatsoever and scary sharp carbon blade:thumbsup:

    And to my left while picture taking there was harmony (somewhat) between House finches and Gold finches:confused:

    It is totally servicable, not TOO soft, but it doesn’t hold a candle to their carbon steel. If you can sharpen then don’t hesitate to pick it up.

    Please accept my condolences to you and yours for the loss of your Son. Your Son’s sacrifice is a debt that society can never fully repay. All we can do is be humbled, remember, and appreciate in full measure, what your Son and others like him have done for us.

    I disagree. Schrade+ stainless is just as good as their carbon. I have used both extensively and there's no discernible difference between the two in edge retention. Sharpening is equally easy for both.

    It is quite a shame what Memorial day has become, no words have I that can adequately do honor to those of our armed forces that paid the greatest cost. While never serving myself I have friends and family who have. When I was in the scouts our Scout Leader and Assistant Leader were both WW2 vets. Early on Memorial day our troop would gather at a large (30 acre) cemetery, we each would take a bundle of small U.S. flags, and row by row look for each veterans marker. On each we planted a flag,gave a scout's salute and proceeded on. I put a flag on my grandfather's grave. A Korean war and Vietnam war vet that I never knew. He committed suicide before I was born. Unfortunately not all combat casualties happen in combat. So to all veterans here, no matter where you served,or what country you served for i thank you for your service. To those whose lost family, my most heartfelt condolences.

    Work in progress, I added a aluminium back spacer to this Peasant mini. Needs sandpaper. Anyway this is a cheap user so it does not have to be fancy. The spacer is pinned (pin ends peened) and the back screw goes through the spacer, no glue because glue does not stick to this plastic. I might add another pin and remove the corby screw to get a lanyard hole?
