    My carry has been pretty static the last few weeks but I brought along a smaller companion as well today.

    The Case trapper has been around for about a century, I believe. It is an extraordinary knife.

    Two large blades that will handle about anything, and a handle that was made for me.

    @Duckdog - Stuart, that was funny. It’s a sparkles paste that my wife uses to highlight her hair, as well as to accent her eye shadow.

    I have wanted to add a Scrimshaw knife to my collection for quite a while. Several weeks ago, I came across a very talented artist and decided to entrust her with a GEC white bone 78 as her canvas. She normally uses Chinese knives to keep the cost down, but I cannot abide by those products. She did a great job. I can lose myself in the scene she created.

    @r8shell , I know you love Scrimshaw and thought you might enjoy seeing this.

    @Gevonovich and @meako , as the Porch’s two poet laureates, I thought this knife might fire your imaginations!

    Thanks @solphilos , the 78 is a classic. The walk and talk of every one that I have owned has been perfect. I thought the shape and large size of the handles would give her a lot of real estate to draw on.

    Thanks Ron @Half/Stop !

    Wow! Stunning scrimshaw my friend, and on the perfect medium as well. Though I'm probably biased as I think the #78 is the greatest GEC out there.

    Don't worry, anyone who would think that's silly wouldn't be reading this forum. :p Heck, I've taken a couple knives out to a movie (a documentary about British soldiers in WW1, I wanted to carry a few 100 year old knives in my pocket - one English and one German made) :D
    Best wishes for your health. :):thumbsup:
    So cool! That's great work, thanks for showing it. :cool::thumbsup:

    Nice pair, especially ‘Ol Scratchy there on the right. But my eyes are drawn to that beautiful walnut crotch wood your knives are posing on.

    You have a blessed weekend as well, Ron! So far, so good...

    After an extremely late start due to our wettest May in recorded history, the vegetable garden is catching up nicely. Broccoli heads are 3 or 4 inches across, a bunch of sweet grilling peppers are almost ready, and beans and squashes are blooming. I’m looking forward to the entire day in the perennial borders moving plants, battling the creeping charlie, and transplanting some young walnuts and oaks planted by the squirrels, so todays knives were picked with that in mind.

    If you look closely in the squash blossom, you can see a bee doing what bees do... 0DED40C5-F89D-4E17-851F-B3FE1D8E97DA.jpeg
