    Gem. :D

    But seriously, people. Every time one of you shows off an old farmer’s jack, or a GEC Orchard Gem, more people are smitten, and the prices go up!

    Shucks. All I’m allowed is what I deserve:oops:

    Thanks Jack! :) I actually thought I would carry the same combination again today! :D

    A 1970 Case Barlow and a Wright’s medium Lambsfoot in the pocket today! :D

    Hi Fellas,

    Since the days are warming up I’ve started to pare down all the gear I tote around in my pockets to lighten up my “pack.” Part of that is swapping my regular pocket knife with the Buck 305 “Lancer” my dad gave to me when I was a kid, around 1972. It was his knife originally. He no longer with us, and being nice and light, plus with Father’s Day tomorrow it just felt right to return to carrying it. It still amazes me how handy that little knife is.

    Have a good Saturday!

    Lovely lovely barlow Steve.

    Beautiful Gev. Full of atmosphere and poignancy.

    WOW what a fine piece of cutlery.

    @Half/Stop Ron another stunning pair today!

    Congrats to you and yours for the milestones! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Sounds like an excellent journey to start on Father's Day weekend!

    That's a zesty little pen knife! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Those two toothpicks are too terrific, Stuart! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:


    Dazzling dark duo, Dylan! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I hope your vacation exceeds your high expectation, Del! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Congrats on that Farmer's jack, Taylor; incredible bone! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dean. :) I'm very fortunate that @black mamba was willing to part with them, especially since they came out before I even knew RR existed. :thumbsup:;)

    Well-chosen combo, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Notable pair of Buck lockbacks! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for noticing, Stuart. :) The pearl is 4 5/8" closed, so not such a small package. :rolleyes:

    :D:thumbsup::thumbsup: Utility, Vince!

    Whale of a knife combo, Rachel! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on the Alox! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: For me, that first Alox was love at first touch! :thumbsup:;)

    The GAW you started certainly had a great run! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Probably got up to near 20 rounds?

    Thanks, Harvey. :)

    Thanks for the props for my ebony lamb and my new pearl gunboat, Dwight. :) Glad the humidity hasn't come up yet; we've been cooler and wetter than normal so far.

    Splendid pic of your Buck Forum knife, with top-notch stag!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: How do you like that no-frills throwback sharpening stone in the pic? :rolleyes:

    Much more than adequate choices, Vince! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Jack. :)
    We know that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so it's wise that you've chosen a pair that helps you stay sharp! :D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Distinguished duo, and the lines of that Kabar stockman are especially lovely!! :cool::thumbsup::cool: (But WHY do they leave the sheep tip so proud??)

    Tremendous timber twosome, John! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    That's my kind of Barlow! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, GT.
    The GEC #14 is my favorite watch pocket knife.
    The Rosewood Lamb is my favorite knife, period.

    My internet connection decided to start acting up, so I can't see everyone's pics :(

    Good idea Ron, they look great :) :thumbsup:

    It's making me exhausted Gary! o_O I've knocked off for the evening now, so I'm going to drink some wine and eat olives with my Vendetta! :D :thumbsup:
