Nice Big Jack! Well, both are superb, but I have a “thing” for big cigar jacks.
It’s Camco Friday!
No complaints about my Bullnose in Nifebrite, but that honey colored micarta knocks my socks off! How did you achieve that color after thinning it down?
Before Duckdog answers, I’m going to say white oak. We’ll see if he confirms!
Thanks for the compliment, Gary!
Stuart, I thank you, and my Camillus 66 thanks you!
Jeff, this gets my vote for best patina on a folding knife. The handle looks incredible!
I'm going with a little Case berries and cream this morning.
The one on the left is a S&M Heritage Jack in rosewood. I just finished the set and am quite pleased with all three.
For Old Friends Friday, I'm totin' a pair that I can carry with me this afternoon when I get together with some buddies for what has become a weekly Liars Libation Lounge at a local watering hole to discuss cars, fishing/hunting, baseball (and ACC and NFL pre-season), and the foibles of all of those around us. Something old, something new-ish.
Beautiful Kutmaster, Stuart!
Here in our semi-cleanroom, these are the three I have with me today... the #82 Dixie Stockman (newly acquired in trade, thanks Blake) is riding in a cheapie Case trapper belt pouch, and the ramfoot is primary carry in front right pocket, with the SAK Soldier in front right cargo pocket. This is the Dixie's maiden voyage... it's almost too pretty to carry...... almost.
Bloefield, please tell me about your jack.
The scales on my Camillus #18 are held on by only the brass center pin and plastic sprue on ends of the scales- poked through the liners and melted in the blade well.
Thanks Gary, If it is it's not by much.
Another recent Rough Rider pick-up. The Bow Trapper in T10 carbon steel.
@JJ Cahill - Thank you JJ. Your two are beautiful, and a fine image, too.
Yep. Almost . Put some mink oil on that Trapper pouch. Set it in the sun, or if you don't live in a place where the daily heat index is 105+, warm it with a blow dryer. Give it 20 minutes or so, wipe and buff, let it dry overnight. By tomorrow it will be a whole lot softer than it is now, and it will also be waterproof.
Thank you for your wisdom and kind comment, Gev!
Thank you, Gary. Have you posted your 6347; I don't remember seeing it?
Thank you, Gary.
I live in north Texas... we actually had a cold front come through.. dropped the temps down a few notches..... we might actually cool down to the 105+ level if it this trend continues....
I had thought of putting some leather dye and sheen on this one, just to see how it reacts to it. I play with leather a little bit, not enough to be very good, but that's what I've done to a couple of sheaths I've cobbled together....I've never seen any mink oil.... would neatsfoot do the same thing, I wonder, or is mink more magical?
