    Looks like a productive day fishing.
    Better than me, I got skunked but still had some fun.

    Thanks, Ron, and I wish you (and everyone else on The Porch) a wonderful weekend as well. :)
    That stag pair you carried yesterday makes me confident my wish will come true. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I agree that American scouts and SAKs are essentially the same pattern, and I like both. :cool::)
    You're probably right about the Vic can opener's superiority because of screw driver capability, but I happened to open a can of dog food Friday with the Imperial BSA scout, and that "hook" worked great! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on your new customs! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Sounds like you're having a fantastic time meeting folks at Blade! :)

    Harvey and Bruce, thanks for the Alox comments. :) I have to admit that I have the dread disease Alox Pox, although my symptoms are not yet as obvious as @Frailer's!! :eek::thumbsup::cool: Impressive selection of orange Alox!
    Bruce, I hope the fishing was fun. I have a Vic Electrician just like yours, and I'm always undecided whether the Electrician or the Farmer is my favorite Alox SAK. :rolleyes:

    Jeff, that Wenger Canyon looks almost equivalent to a Vic Tinker, a favorite of mine. :cool::thumbsup::cool: The small clip on yours is an interesting variation. And you're probably right about Alox. As far as functionality is concerned, the aluminum covers don't justify the added expense. :( They sure do look (and feel) nice, though! ;)

    It's all a matter of personal choice, of course. I'm sure GECs are perfect for lots of folks, they just don't happen to fit the knife budget I set for myself.

    Das sind drei sehr schöne alte Messer, Nicolas! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Wow, Dwight, you seem to have at least one of almost everything!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:;)

    :D:D Beer Garden of Eden is close enough! Boffo brace of Barlows, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Exquisite knife, Paul! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Dwight that navaja is fine as dandy line wine! :thumbsup::cool:;)

    Thanks, Dean. :) I should add a lanyard to take advantage of that feature.

    What a striking knife, Dean; glad you like it as much as I like mine! :):thumbsup::cool:

    Compelling shot of a classy knife, Harvey! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: What is the background?

    Congrats on the Buck 55! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Is a 55 half the size of a 110?? ;)

    Little in size, gigantic in appeal, Nick!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Harry and Alan, those wire frame Schrades are intriguing! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Thanks for the link to the pics of your impressive collection, Alan!

    That IS a Spanish beauty, Vince! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Did you go to San Antonio to beat the heat on the coast? I saw some brutal temps down there! :eek:

    Kudos for making the trade, John, and congrats to @MJ71 on getting a knife you were after! :thumbsup::cool::cool::)

    Guten Morgen, Dave; classic knife! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I need to track down an Ankermesser some day before I join the merchant marines. ;)

    Formidable foursome, Jer! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    What a PAL, Steve! Crinkly bone!! ;):thumbsup::cool:

    I'm awed that you could pull that off, Gev!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I can hardly wait for the movie! :D

    I hope Boston is singing the Blues when it's all over, Tom! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Sensational senator, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: What flashlight model is that?

    Striking sleeveboard pen, Dean! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Here are my four that are always with me:

    Actually, it's usually hotter in San Antonio. My weather app indicates it's 94 now (5:00 pm) here in Corpus Christi, but it's 98 in San Antonio. It's also drier and less windy in SA. Hey, but I'm used to it! I really wouldn't want to live anywhere but Texas.

    Thanks, I'm really loving it so far.
    It's not, but that's kind of what they want to convey. ( It is probably about 50% of the weight though ).

    Thanks John. It arrived in a very nicely polished conditioned. That patina is from slicing a meal of beef cheeks cooked on a fire in the outback. Will be taking very good care of the knife. MJ.

    You're welcome. The wire jacks qualify as minimalism to the extreme.

    Thank you GT. The background is an extreme closeup portion of a Traffic Signals cover, earlier in the day when it was sunnier.:)

    You know, I don't know why I haven't gotten one of those. If beauty is first defined by functionality, that is beautiful indeed.

    Alox? Pfft!:D
