It's a fine pattern that makes me curious each time I see it You have some lookers too
Thank you, GT.
I always appreciate your friendly comments.
Very nice knife, GT.
Your pictures of the Sowbelly Stockman certainly have me curious to try one some day.
My Hartshead Barlow and Case Large Stockman served me well on my trip.
Once I got home, I had a desire to pocket this one. A Case knife that rivals the quality of any knife I own...
Been carrying this Buck 303 Cadet since last Friday; I did take time this evening to take a blade open photo. Been so long since I carried this knife I have forgotten what a fine old knife it is. OH
@5K Qs Thank you GT. It’s a frozen pizza with a few slices of Gouda, added, blanketing the top.
I’ve just begun an interest in Stockmans. I sure like yours.
I hear ya. I felt the same way about most pieces.
Here's a cocobolo hollow form with finial that I turned about 10 years ago. The opening is about 1". Finally had to give it up due to back issues. I've added a 77 for scale (and to keep it trad knife related).
To keep it knife related. That is a really nice barlow, like the color of the scales. Love your wood turning, i can see why cocobolo makes great knife scales. sorry to hear you had to give it up.
Thanks Gary! That armor hide canoe is really cool. What are the covers? Armadillo??
Schrade cut co mini moose today.
WOW, I am contemplating perfection in this hollow form, I am beyond impressed !!! I am sorry as well you had to give it up. Thank you for posting, always so nice to meet fellow wood turners and traditional knives enthusiasts !
I love your barlow !!! (I am on standby on the recent 77 barlow release )
Beautiful oldie, Nick, early '30s? The Rough Rider Armor Hide is jigged cattle bone.
Thank you Harvey. Awesome texture on your composition of the elderly lamb.
Thank you Gev. Good to see you harvesting!
Thank you GT.
Thanks Jeff for the nice comment and for armor hide info. @5K Qs GT, it could pass off as armadillo or some exotic reptile skin!
Jeff, my guess is also that my knife is from the 30’s. Pretty sure it’s before peach seed and after pick bone but can’t remember if it was before or after the basketweave(or was it the divot style?) jigging.
In spite of, or is it because of, the ravages of dihydrogen oxide on the steel, and rodents one the bone, that is an incredible looking old veteran. Do you have any back story on her, Dwight?
Thanks, Harvey! It's a Schrade Walden, NY USA 163. I really don't know it's age, but I'd guess maybe the '70s?
Besides Navy Knife, I've also seen it called Rope or Hawser Knife. Big strong spring with great snap. It's deadly on tomatos!
Wow, that's a good one!
Congratulations on the new Ramsfoot! It sure is a great looking knife.
But I must compliment you on the old Pal swell end jack. So special!
What a peach !! The swedge work and lines of it....dandy. /and there is something in a moose pattern that resonates with me as of late.
It does something for the soul; this gardening Thanks for the sentiment
Harvey, here’s a thread from ‘09 in the BF Schrade collectors forum about that Schrade Walden 163...
Thanks for the response, Jeff.just love it. I’m checking out the link now.
@Fodderwing Thank you kindly, Dwight.
