    @JJ Cahill - Thank you JJ. Love the warmth and color of the Masserin, as well as your Ebony Lionsteel.

    @Jack Black - Thank you Jack. That’s a lovely pair + the beautiful background of your Hartshead Barlow.

    @Prester John - Vince, your Wooden Wednesday image hits all the right notes, perfectly.:thumbsup:

    HSB Junior Cattle Knife today, but it’s just riding a pocket; a Buck 110 LT has done all the work so far! OH

    bet you've got some blisters on your hand from that... it obviously needs a good sharpening, though... pretty ragged cut...

    I'm glad we got some impressive Case Barlows recently, gents! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I hope you get cooler weather soon! :thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I briefly thought about contacting you to see if you'd improved the edge of my canoe as well as its covers! :rolleyes:;)
    Thanks for the Barlow props. :)

    We had Johnsonville turkey hotdogs last week; I was impressed! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Ron. :) Sorry to hear that only a third of the Barlows you bought met expectations. :( I bought mine in a hardware store in Mackinaw City MI on the way to our vacation rental a couple of weeks ago. I'd never been there before, but I found out they were one of only two Case Master dealers in Michigan, so I wanted to try shopping for a knife in person and picking out a knife that "met my standards". I was only interested in the brown sawcut CV Barlow, but ironically, they only had one left in stock. The dye near the bolsters was a little lighter than I'd have preferred, but acceptable.

    I like the way you caught the sunset reflecting in that ebony, Paul! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Harvey. :) The V-cut is looking pretty good already; I think I'll only wear a band aid now if I'm doing something where I might bang the finger on something.

    I appreciate your comments, JJ. :)

    Nice description of those new GECs! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Variety is valued, Jack! ;):thumbsup:
    That pair of relatively new stags is illustrious! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    You guys are playing sweet tunes! ;):cool::cool:

    Splendid pic of your elk under the ironwood, Mark! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on the Stockyard Whittler, Rachel! :thumbsup::cool::cool: Speaking of whimsy, calling the knife Ramen indicates that you prioritize punches above pork! ;) (And who DOESN'T put the shield upside down? :rolleyes:)

    That stag Churchill sure has a vintage vibe, Gev! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I'm impressed by your industry, Stuart, setting posts in near-100˚ heat! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup: And your pic makes me think I really haven't grown up yet, even after 2/3 of a century, because I still don't have my own posthole digger. :(

    Is that gorgeous 6347 an intentional choice this time, Dean? ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: Both chestnut treatments are lookers!

    Cool photo, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Can you explain what everything "means" in that Sheffield coat of (bare) arms? ;)

    That double jigging style is unique! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Champion pics that are amazingly similar in "mood", Nick and David! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Legging out an extra base hit with that duo, Vince! :cool::cool:;)

    Congrats on the results of the physical, Del; that's quite the colorful celebratory knife!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    My wife has a lot of milkweed growing in our side yard, but this summer I think we have only one Monarch in residence. :(

    Thanks, JJ. :)

    Excellent stag HHB, José! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Out of this world, Mark! :cool::cool:;) (At first, I thought it memorialized the 50 years since I graduated from high school. :rolleyes:)

    Tremendous timber for today, John & Ron & Jeff! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Good to see you've gone straight, Stuart! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    When Jeff is right, he's right @cjtamu! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:
    What's your procedure for cleaning out the rust, Chris?

    Gosh, it's a Grain Gala! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That must be one of those demolition knives I've heard about, David! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Ha ha ha. I posted this one a few days ago but didn't explain. This is my Woodford in Waterford photo. Kim was going through a box of unsorted items that hadn't been priced yet and asked me about a box that said "Waterford" on top. Open it and there are 4 whisky glasses with stickers still on them and in the original tissue paper. Someone had also stuck a string of pearls with a broken clasp inside. I went up and asked first about the glasses then about the pearls. You'd cry if you knew what I paid for them. The Case 6318 is also from the sale, so I put it with the glasses in the photo. I'll take a picture for you later of the carpenter's level I bought.

    @5K Qs I can only guess, GT., but @Jack Black might know. It was billed as an 80s Hipster patch. It looks like an interpretation, celebrating Labor and Industry. that went way back. On the right side, I see an anvil, so perhaps it in reference to Sheffield as being known as a giant of the Steel Industry. At least that’s what I thought.:)

    Uh oh! You have committed a musical equivalent of disrupting the universe by dividing by zero.:eek: Since there is only 1/2 step between E and F, there is no black key between them.

    BUT. No matter how pose it, your gifted ebony 15 jack is a treat for my eyes.:D:thumbsup:
    Big, Beautiful spear blade, sunknife! Wow.:thumbsup:

    Thank you guys for the nice words! Gev, like what Gary said, I thought your Churchill was an old knife at first glance. Very nice.
