    Love that knife and the Olive wood !
    I also like the faceted bolsters and I bet you can take out any blade play that might develop over the years by just tightening them up a tad :thumbsup:

    That shadow Crucible is especially eye-catching! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Your pair "runs the gamut" in size, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Always a pleasure to see your Totem, Dave! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I like summer, but 2 solid weeks of 100+ is redikooluss!! :eek:

    Great stockman, Dean! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Coincidentally, I cut myself last week when I fumbled the knife while setting up a glamor shot of the canoe Rachel scrimshawed for me. :rolleyes: No stitches or bone showing, but definitely the worst knife cut I've ever had.

    Impressive pair, Jon! :thumbsup::cool::cool: You know your rosewood lambsfoot is nearly identical to mine, and now I have a Case saw cut brown CV Barlow nearly identical to yours! :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the clarification, Vince. :) I thought maybe you were giving us a sneak preview of your Sunday carries, but then I remembered "Sabbath" is often used for Saturday, too.

    Thanks, Dean. :) Your navy blue Tribal Lock has nice dark blue all the way to the bolster, which I think is optimal! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Sensational pair of 93s, Ron! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Do you and Harry @Old Engineer have a pact about pairing these up? ;)

    Jeff, I admire a man with a plan, and the tools to carry it out! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    :D:D:thumbsup: Sons can be quite exasperating to their moms, Tom!

    Man, those Presidentials are heavenly knives!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Bunch of Case beauties, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: (Kinda favor mini copperlocks, eh? ;))

    Thank you, sir. :)

    That Catt scout is something else, JJ! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Charming couple of Churchills, Will! :thumbsup::cool::cool: I enjoyed the story of how you finally found the cougar-clawed model that had been MIA for months.

    Sweet swayback, John! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    That 7 OT must have come out after Buck introduced the 110, right?
    Congrats on the stag 2-blade Swayback Jack; what a prize! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Scintillating stockman, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Excellent photo of your Fine TC Barlow, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Charming pic, Gev! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Superlative shot, Harvey! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Very scenic setting for a very satisfying knife! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Dave, your shot reminds me that we returned home from vacation to a raised bed full of greens that need harvesting soon! ;):cool:

    Yeah, I'm pretty tired of it and they're predicting another week. It does cool down for a few hours before sunrise to 80 degrees, though. :rolleyes:
    :eek: Not my fault! I didn't sharpen the edge on that canoe. :p
    Nice Case Barlow. :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the compliment on the 93's Gary! :) All I can say about two old engineers like Harry @Old Engineer and myself is, great minds really do think alike! :p Our only pact being we both have similar tastes in cutlery! :D You got a great Barlow there. I bought three in hopes of getting a good one. I got one of the three that has matching covers on the pile and mark sides. The other two not so good. I really need to get them out and photograph them for the Case Barlow thread. :D

    @5K Qs- Thank you GT. Sorry for the knife cut mishap. Heal quickly.

    @Gevonovich - Thank you Gev. I had already acquired a sample. Taking your advice, I found online a free copy of Ouspensky’s “In Search of the Miraculous.”
