    Thanks.
    That blade assortment should meet any cutting needs. I think it's cool when I pull out a GEC to use or show someone, and they ask "How old is that?" They know I like vintage knives, and with a patina wouldn't think it was something in current production.
    I'm carrying two knives made in 2019: a white bone Pemberton and a #29 Stockyard Whittler I have named 'Ramen'.

    Yep. :thumbsup: It's got a blade with belly, a short straight edge and a punch: a perfect combination. :cool::thumbsup: I plan to carry it every day for at least a month. The bone color and jigging is just okay now, but I have a feeling that it will mellow out with wear to something really nice.
    Of course, I'm not promising to carry it all by itself. I'll usually have a smaller peanut-like knife, and something larger like a Lambsfoot. It's a fine middle-sized knife.
    Taking lots of pre-patina photos:

    Hmm...only one criticism; I think they put the shield on upside down. o_O

    We had plenty of Yuengling to keep you calm during the brief frenzy.

    Thanks, guys. Yes, JJ, they went quickly, but now I'm helping tend a smoker for several hours on a warm day (thank goodness for remote sensing thermometers).

    Temperature outside at 93° (feels like 98°) not withstanding, Miss Norma has decided that "we" need to put up a butterfly house before the predicted rain storms arrive later today. That means "someone" needs to lift some clay to stick an 8' 4X4 post 3' into the ground. I must have mentioned Ron's @Half/Stop raised bed ruckus of yesterday to plant that idea in her head. Anyway, into the furnace . . .

    It’s good to see your Stag Churchill Gev! It’s been awhile! :thumbsup: :)

    Be careful in the heat Stuart! Remember it’s rough on elderly gentlemen such as us! :eek: But always also remember, “Happy wife! Happy life!” :thumbsup: ;)

    Aww shucks, Gary; thank you for your compliments. I think everyone on BladeForums has probably cut themselves accidentally at least once - a knifenut right of passage. :)

    A beautiful pair of TC Barlows. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Today I'm carrying my new chestnut bone Case 6347 (which is apparently carbon steel) and an SBJ.

    Just picked up my first case peanut last night and it's an awesome little knife, I'm exited to give it a couple weeks or so and see how it goes.

    I don't like the mirror polished blades case does for most of their knives, but these are stone tumbled or something and it's so much better.

    I had never heard of that stuff until I went off to college. A girl I knew seemed to eat little else.
    This #29 Whittler is really testing my resolve to be happy with what I have. Maybe if I didn’t buy one of the recently available #21 Bull Busters...but I like the smaller Bullnose no much, I jumped on it.
    Anyway, look forward to seeing you put some patina on her!

    Possibly Case’s best color!
