    Classic knife and stunning still life, @Jolipapa! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I've heard the fairy tale about the goose that laid golden eggs, but I'll take the type of WCLF egg your hennaed chicks lay!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's a WCLF of a different color, but your ebony is at least as desirable as @Travman's white bone, John! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Super-useful pair, Jeff, with an average of 2.5 tools per knife! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Playing footsie for Black Friday seems like a fine idea, Steve! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That is such a handsome knife! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Classy coal-colored couple for Black Friday! :cool::cool::thumbsup: That Case lockback is cool, but the stories you and Case tell about it are mysterious!

    White oak??? :eek: It sure doesn't look anything like the bark on my very old red oaks in the front yard! But I don't know trees. Thanks, Jeff.

    Definitely a notable pair, Jeff! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the ID, Jiki, and congrats on completing your triple play! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Looks like a great pair for show-and-tell with the Bottle Tips & Loose Lips Club! ;):cool::cool:

    Thanks for the info, Steve. :) Was it uncommon to "float" a shield on top of the covers?

    I have several carbon steel Rough Riders, and your bow trapper looks highly desirable. :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: How do you think it compares with a "normal" full size trapper?

    Your DamSamLamb Senator is a treat, Harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Still looking magnificent, even after use, Gev! ;):cool::cool:

    I'm sure I've posted it as a Stockman of the Week and as a "free choice knife", but it looks like my current schedule for stockman patterns repeats every 30 weeks, so the 6347 gets carried only one week each calendar year.

    Given the knives I posted on Friday, it's not a surprise that your CV chestnut jigged teardrop is MY favorite of YOUR several Case teardrops.:cool::cool:;)

    Thanks, Steve. :)

    That almost-new Case saw cut Barlow looks VERY vintage, @solphilos; congrats! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Nick. :)

    I think Doctor @RDaneel already wrote you an excellent prescription to treat your disease. :D But I'll bet you and Kim can go out this weekend and find yourself a half-dozen teardrops at one of your magical flea markets!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::p

    Truth, right there in black and white! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Those are a couple of moving sheepsfoot by the seaside photos, guys! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, JJ; I only go to the $2 windows, but that's fun enough for me! ;)

    Gorgeous examples, JJ. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Do you think German stag is distinctive/recognizable, with a style that's different from British or American??

    As Gev remarked, that is certainly a covetable knife! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Wow, that's a charming and well-matched pair of Remingtons! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    My Stag/Horn Knife this week is a Joker bull horn knife my daughter bought for me in Zaragoza, Spain:

    My Lambsfoot of the Week is Man Jack, a stag senator I won in a GAW by a BF member from Manchester, England:

    Sorry for late response.
    That's a #14 with 3 pins like the others I have.
    Here's some shots of #14's and #18's
    Seems to me the earlier model 18's had 3 pins going by the stamps on the ones I have.
    I could be wrong so here's is some pics.

    @5K Qs This knife fills out the hand a bit more. A bit heftier but nicely so. It also has a somewhat unique lanyard attachment via a pin integrated in the butt of than handle.

    It's a good looking and well finished knife.

    Don't think you can go wrong.

    GEC has a couple of good ones in the works! 77 Barlow’s and a run of 92’s; not bad at all!

    Wow Harvey, your Iberson is an amazing example of Sheffield at their best; stunning detail!:thumbsup::thumbsup::eek:
    Thank you Gev!!! What a beautiful image of your knife; you even managed to get that delightful moth to pose!:thumbsup::thumbsup:;)
    Thanks Stuart!!! I have a soft spot for these BSA related knives as I believe my first tote was a Cub Scout version!:D
    Thanks again!!! You too have quite an exceptional pair of stag bearing beauties; a fixed blade with a traditional folder is a perfect combination!:thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:
    I'd say you have salsa for the entire town Jeff; amazing!!!:thumbsup::thumbsup::D
    Fantastic image Joel! Those wonderful knives wearing stag look astounding in that setting!:):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thanks Gary!!! The only stag I have seen that looks distinctive are several examples from Puma that I have owned over the years.:rolleyes:
    Speaking of stag, your Lambsfoot senator looks gorgeous as do your other two choices of bull horn and bone!:thumbsup::thumbsup::D
    I certainly have a great time gazing on those handsome knives Harry!!! I recently read that LF&C (your cool crate) was the world's largest cutlery company by 1905!:thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I felt like a couple from Robeson for my totes today; a rock solid scout from the 1911-20 period and an ultra keen edged jack from the 1922-39 era. :D

    Beautiful. I wish I would have bought one of the ebonys when they were available. You know what they say about hindsight.

    Handsome dogs, Kurt and Les!
    That’s nice, Josh! Did you make it?

    947C9B0F-AED2-486C-B349-4FDEF4B22C24.jpeg A couple of mid-size knives for me today. This was my first stockman, bought while working at Sears hardware back in high school. A8E7F851-135C-4F86-93E7-2DE893B90E65.jpeg
