    Looks like it’s turnin’ into a stag & smooth bone Saturday. Here’s a vintage smooth bone from the early 20s.

    A Graeff & Schmidt Jack Knife I rescued from the bottom of a paint soaked toolbox. After many hours of cleaning with a wooden detailing stick. a toothbrush and WD-40. A couple of overnight soaks this was the recipe for success.

    We call that “patina”, and it’s a badge of honor for a working knife.
    And as you know, the TL-29 is a helluva work knife!

    Thank you very much Harvey for the kind words . The Bower was not sharp when I got it and now it is pretty sharp and it did not take long to make it that way .
