    @5K Qs Thanks Gary! :)

    The closer you get to 60, the more you feel 60. :eek:

    So, I'm guessing 70 must be a riot? :p

    Well..... as ol' George is supposed to have said, "I cannot tell a lie " The lambsfoot had a wee bit of help:D:p But it was used to cut some tough materials out of the way including old lamp cords used to tie things up, and some thick nylon strapping:thumbsup: It really is a tough working knife:cool:

    Nope,70 is not a riot.Trust me.At 72 I find myself still recovering from back surgery from two years ago.Shortly before that,my wife's horse jumped a creek and ran over me and broke my leg and busted some ribs on a trail ride a half mile from the house and wasn't fun riding back to where I could fall on the ground and crawl to the car to go to the hospital, and then there are the sleepless nights because of very frequent visits to the latrine.Above all,I find myself in constant need of buying more traditional slip joints to satisfy my urge before I croak.Sixty ? I'd love to be sixty again. Enjoy while you can. Old comes soon.

    I'm with you, and kudos on your horse ride recovery. I try to stay with at least a few knives within my age group that aren't too banged up.

    Got this one as a surprise from @blademan 13 it is a Keen Kutter but it did have a nasty chip/nick about mid way down the blade, took a while but I was able to sharpen it out and she's quite the cutter, plus some interesting covers there that I rubbed with flitz to help polish up the outside so it looks about new, but is pretty old, not sure the age but she's certainly old enough to drink ;) Thanks again Jamie !

    After viewing the great Kamp King find by @cjtamu, I pulled out some of my Imperial Hammer Brands from the same era; they are still such great cutters after 60-70+ years. For Thursday I'll go with these 3.:rolleyes:
