    Hi addylo , to follow the theme of your beautiful photo I pulled out my only barlow, a humble War Eagle Blades and a Sycamore hollow form I turned in 2014, opening bigger at about 1 1/2 inch.
    I promise to carry for the rest of today my barlow, because the thread after all is titled " What traditional knife are ya toting today" LOL :)

    Great lines on that hollow form! You nailed the curve. I've never turned sycamore but it's a beautiful wood. Nice grain. I love the War Eagle as well.

    I might have mentioned them if I had any idea what they are! :rolleyes:

    Thanks for setting it up for me, Jeff (and RALF). ;)

    That 2-blade Hay'n Helper is such a useful-looking knife, Dave! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    @afishhunter sent me an email containing a photo of him in his kilt, and said I could post it here for him. So here it is! :cool:
    :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Steve and John; I certainly appreciate all the fine knives everyone takes the time to post here that I can admire and enjoy! :)

    John and Harvey and JJ, I got a sowbelly stockman in a set of 12 Rough Riders I ordered early on in my knife journey. I had never seen such a thing before, but once I started carrying it (I gave each knife a 1-week trial run, get-acquainted period), I found it hard to put away after a single week. IIRC, it actually got a 3-week run because I liked it so much. I have several sowbellies now, and that chestnut Case is certainly one of the best!
    Thanks for the pizza info, Harvey. :) I'm going to pretend that's a healthier consumable prop than your bakery goods. ;)

    Thanks for noticing the Armor Hide, Nick, and thanks for helping me out with the ID, Jeff. I would have guessed bone, but wasn't certain. It sure would be cool to have armadillo covers, though! ;) Here's a Rough Rider blurb about Armor Hide - not the clearest piece of prose I ever read:
    The ancient craftsman of a Samurai warrior's armor used all of the materials that both man & nature provided. From hand-pounded steel to the thick leather and dense durable bone of the water buffalo, the Samurai's "Armor Hide" was ultimate protection from the enemy. The methods of creating the "Armor Hide" were passed from generation to generation. The Rough Rider "Armor Hide" knives honor those traditional methods of melting man-made and natural materials to create the perfect result, and these collectible knives can be passed on from generation to generation. Hawkbill. 4" closed. Stainless hawkibill blade and gray "Armor Hide" bone handles with grooved nickel silver bolster and inlay shield.
    Nick, that moose has juice!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Amazing "crinkly" jigging, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Do you know how the stump ended up with that "starburst" in the middle??

    Congrats on the handsome Ram Foot, Josh! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Good Wood!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    I bought a couple of those walnut Spartans on closeout once, but must have given them both away. :eek: Wish I'd have kept one! ;)

    Thanks, Jack. :) Pleasing pair for the day! :cool::thumbsup::cool: What ARE all those colorful bowls? Yorkshire teacups??

    :) I could actually read this without the online translator (but I checked there, just to make sure I was right)! :cool:

    Many thanks for your attention, José! :):thumbsup:

    Wonderful knife, José; I like seeing the ones unique to your country. :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Like coming home again, John! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I know those knives are relatively new, but I think they're classic patterns, Ron! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Dwight, is that big groove in the mark side stag of your HHB lambsfoot like a custom thumb-slot when you grip the knife? :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Beauty, Vince! :cool::cool::thumbsup: How big is that, anyway? I never thought about how to carry it; pocket carry works fine?

    That's a fantastic citrus peel integral sign for those of us who care about calculus! :rolleyes::D

    Terrific knife triangle, Steve! ;):cool::cool:

    Exquisite ebony (with sprinkles ;)), Harvey! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Hey, is that a rosewood lambsfoot, Tom??? :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That 2-blade teardrop is eye candy, Rachel! :cool::thumbsup::cool: I'm thinking butterscotch, or maybe Bit-o-Honey??

    Thanks, Dean. :) Some of my best pics are from our vacation rental; everything just looks better up there for that magic week or two each summer! :rolleyes::D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Great choice, Dean!

    Toasted marshmallow???
    Wrap-around springs are when the backspring wraps around the butt end of the knife. Your Case Swayback Jack has it, too.
