    Thank you, Ron! Those two knives have a special place in my heart and are highly functional, useful and supremely well made. I kinda like 'em. :)

    Beautiful ebony in both case, Ron! I like how dark the covers are. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Oh my, Gev, your Primble stockman is gorgeous and well photographed (of course)! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thank you, Gary! I'm going to have that song in my head all day, though. :eek::)

    @Fodderwing - That’s a great find, Dwight. Your T.W. Ablett Ettrick looks spectacular. Congratulations, again.

    @Buzzbait Have a great and safe adventure with your daughter, Buzz.

    @5K Qs Thank you GT. Taking a little time to find a sowbelly with my name on it. But based on the look of your Rough Rider collection, as well as your enthusiasm, I just picked up my first two.:thumbsup:

    The obsession is strong.

    I am carrying this 4" Case CV 6292 Texas Jack today because it misses it's partner that I sent to @JohnDF. These knives are great workers and fit easily in the hand.

    yes I do, unfortunately. I know it too well. :mad:

    And I thank you for that. It is truly a remarkably built knife. I've been playing with it all morning.
    Lambsfoot is in the pocket and the Texas Jack is on the desk to randomly pick up and fidget with. :cool::thumbsup:

    It’s a 15 day.

    Hand-crafted customs inspire lust in my heart, and chasing after SFOs can make my heart go pitter-pat.

    But when you get right down to it, for me at least, function is where it’s at.

    I’ve been getting concerned about my friend too! I sent him a text this morning but I haven’t gotten a response yet. I let y’all know if I hear anything!

    You’re welcome my friend! Thanks for the compliment on my Ebony! :)

    That's a good question. I don't know why it isn't more common. I don't know if it's harder to fit, and I guess the extra spring material adds a little weight. I imagine @Will Power prefers it, since it reduces the size of the "dirt trap" on a Jack Knife. :D

    I just got a reply text from Stuart @Duckdog. I told him we were wandering about him. He’s doing okay! He has been doing some fishing and working on his hunting property. He said he has also had to do some work on his daughters car. All this on top of yard work and contending with the terrible heat. Not to worry he’ll be back soon. He did say that he wouldn’t even try to catch up!

    @5K Qs ~ Appreciate your kind and witty comments, my friend. You inspired me to carry the Sabre. Way overdue!

    Nice pair! Zooming in, I think I can make out the lines that indicate Ivoroid scales on the Cami. Is that correct? It looks remarkably similar to the Camillus stockman that I put smooth elk on.
    Me likey! Split spring?
    Love that old bone!
    I’m in the same camp. Fortunately, I get pleasure seeing the fine customs and sfos in this thread!

    That 15 is a great knife. When I have modded TL-29s the 15 is what I was shooting for.

    Thanks for the good news. That would have been a long fishing trip!
