    Oh my, Gary, your Keen Kutter Office Knife is a grail! And, of course, your mini copperhead is literally inspiring. :)

    Thanks, GT this is a small display case with clear plexiglass cover it holds three. I purchased it through a GEC dealer whom I should not name as I'm not sure if he is a paid member?

    Carried 2 Schatt & Morgans today. The large bone pen knife is a nice knife, even with some blade rub spots, just wish the keystone shield was a bit smaller or not there at all. Detracts from the nice bone jigging IMO. The rosewood jack from the heritage series is near perfect for my taste. I love the blade shape, long pull nail nick, steel pins and liner and the scales. pen & rosewood-1 - 1.jpg pen & rosewood-2 - 1.jpg

    Thanks GT, they get the work done in splendid fashion. I do occasionally take a pearl to work, I carried a pearl Bulldog copperhead earlier this week. The copperhead was more on lunch duty though ;). The big Camillus is a good tough knife,a well dressed worker :cool: Though the more utilitarian knives see most of the use:thumbsup:

    Love the Doctor Who quote. :cool: :thumbsup:
    Also, I assume by your username that you are a Jeep Guy.
    We must be kindred spirits... :D

    Thank you! The 10th and 11th Doctors were my favorite, although I'm quite a bit behind and need to catch up.

    I like Jeeps, but I've never owned and can't consider myself a Jeep guy. My username came about from when I first found the forum. My first quality knife was an Emerson. I joined the forum and thought I'd only be buying Emersons. I discovered other brands immediately and the addiction took off. I thought I'd always have something with a Wave in my pocket. Hence the username.

    I was entirely wrong.

    Great story. I thought for sure it was a Jeep Wave from a guy with a JK Jeep. :D

    Putting up corrugated sheet metal. (Thank goodness). Right over the old shingles.
    My job today was standing up on the lift right at the eave, measuring and marking 2x4s, and passing them up. They are being nailed over the old roof horizontally, through the old roofing, right down into the rafters, and the sheet metal will be nailed to them. Expedient, strong, and watertight. The owner, a good friend of mine, is a highly skilled carpenter and worker of wood, his wife is my bandmate, and the barn is where our monthly worship events are held.
    Truthfully, I was not doing anything that a 13 year old kid couldn't do, but it saves him from having to climb up and down, makes it go much faster, and we had good conversation.

    When you're working out how to get a razor edge, don't forget to start with a low angle back edge. Then raise the blade for a higher angle, and the edge will only take a few strokes. Usually! :D
