    God bless the Woodrow's (the best) among us.

    It would be a worthy undertaking. There are five in existence. :cool:

    Well said GT. The Yin & Yang. Order & Chaos.

    On June 6, 1944, my father (who passed in August 2017 at 96) graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West point, NY. The Normandy invasion was announced at the ceremony. By December, he was in the 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment at the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium. The knives below were not his; I received them from my stepfather who collected them in 1980 to around 2006 (he passed in 2012 at 89). They are in my pockets today.

    A Camillus USMC engineer's knife (1942) and and George Schrade "Presto" M-2 paratrooper knife (1940-1956):

    The 1st knife you mentioned is a 1970 Case 6208 pattern. Case calls this a half whittler, but I think it is more properly a pen knife. (The 6308, however is a whittler). Thank you for kind comments on both of my knives!

    The Texas is in La Porte, just SE of Houston. Don't be in a hurry to go see it though. It's being transported to Alabama for repairs. IF it survives the journey (50/50 IMO), then it's going to be relocated somewhere with more tourists. Galveston is the odds on favorite right now. All of the preceding subject to changes from last-minute legal wrangling.

    Thanks for explaining all that, GT. That sounds like a most excellent reason to carry the SBJr. :cool: :thumbsup:

    I'm not sure. It is a relatively inexpensive model that we bought for my son. It tunes pretty easily, but I don't know enough about Ukulele's to say whether it stays in tune well.
