    The Case barlow got the nod today... I've been neglecting it lately...

    That's awesome. Going to look into one. The Fritillary like the passion vine and the Giant Swallowtail (I think that's what we have) like our orange tree.Biggest issue is trying to control the wasps.

    Today's carry. Yep, another flea market/estate find. 1998 (OH you can see the "USA" and there are 2 dots under it, I checked this time ha ha) Case Barlow in black jigged bone. This one had some rust, particularly inside of back springs and on the tangs at the pivot. Cleaned up nicely. Dye job a little uneven as you can see. Can't see it in the photos, but the clip blade has a really annoying blade rub on the mark side, right over the "L" in "Limited". Overall a neat little knife, and since I basically stole it I guess I shouldn't complain about a little blade rub :D. And it's the first Barlow I've owned since I was probably 6 or 7 years old, so that's fun.

    City Knife is on snack duty today. Works a treat on these annoying little pouches filled with sticky candy.
    Our grandsons are here today, which insures I will sleep well tonight.
    Laguiole is in the pocket for wooden Wednesday.

    One more flea market knife, Imperial Kamp King. This is Kim's, she's going to try it out today. My understanding of the tang stamps puts this one between 1946-1956, but someone correct me if I'm wrong. You see a lot of these, but this one was cool because it was so pristine. No marks on the blade or any of the tools, looked unused. Removed some rust, cleaned and oiled, ready to rock and roll.

    Holy Smokes, killin it at the flea market!

    You mentioned other, non-knife treasures that you found. Maybe you could work those into knife photos? :D

    I see all kinds of odd gauges and control panels labeled “steampunk”, which apparently means you’re supposed to make odd lamps out of them.:rolleyes:
    Things I’m always looking for include vises, anvils, and planes, but around here, suburban collectors and decorators have caused prices on them to soar.
    I can usually find old quality files, drill bits, chisels, etc dirt cheap, though.

    I can’t believe the near mint condition of the knives you found!:thumbsup:
