Well folks I’ve made it! :eek: The Good Lord has blessed me to be able to say “I’m 65” this morning! Pam and I are spending the weekend at our daughters place near Nashville. I’m only carrying one knife this weekend. I thought it only fitting to carry the knife that has spent the most time in my pocket during these 65 years. So here is the birthday card my daughter left here for me along with my 1973 Case 6347 Stainless Stockman. I’ll probably be posting again later when I get Pam’s card. I hope y’all have a blessed day! :)

@5K Qs - Thank you GT. As for comparisons to my Stag Senator, I must say: Au contraire mon frere. Your Man Jack is right up there.:)

You’re getting close to home. Cuba City has the absolute best string cheese on the planet. Gile Cheese:)
Did not know that !!! Thanks for the info . We like to get cheese from Decatur Dairy , which is just outside of Broadhead .

It's a pleasure to partake in your compositions ! I have not added to my barlow collection in sometime; thanks for the inspiration of that beauty....wow
Thank you Gev, you are very kind! A glorious pair for you today; I always feel the old beauties like your Ulster are yearning to tell their stories!:rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:
Thank you JJ. Love the Chris Johnson Barlow and the Fieldmaster. as well as the dark mood and masterful composition your image evokes.
Thank you very much Harvey!!! Again you have a fabulous knife, giving it that wonderful dimension with your amazing photography!:thumbsup::thumbsup::D
Maybe I'm bragging but usually any day you can put another hole on the buckle end of your belt is a good day.
That is certainly true and what an outstanding way to accomplish your task using your GEC 29 beauty!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
Enchanting carries for Black Friday; that 2-blade swell-end jack is a corker!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
My Peanut of the Week is a stainless Case delrin model I won in the first GAW I entered on The Porch (thanks, Cory):

Lambsfoot of the Week is my 2018 ebony Guardians lambsfoot that I've named Black Jack:

Thank you Gary!!! You have another excellent set of 3 slick slicers today; hard to be a sowbelly for "feeling in hand" (something I learned via you!):thumbsup::thumbsup::D
I’ve had these two with me the last couple days.
Went to the Flea Market in Monroe , Wi. today and had this in my pocket . We found Zero knives worth buying , but was able to pick up 3 more Horse Harness Hames Brass Balls.


Now I have 4 to use for projects . Cost of the 3 latest ones = $ 11
Wow Harry, not only an old and beautiful TEW, but quite an excellent acquisition of those classic harness balls!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
Boy, you can't take your eye off this thread for a moment. Well, another Saturday, another dove hunt,. I toted these all day.

Great setup for another harvest Stuart; heck you can even snap into a 'biner and rappel to your final firing position!:thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

With the arrival of some new knives this week I strayed for a couple of days, but the L'il Lambsfoot is back in the pocket today :)

Looks like you've really taken to that one Mike :) :thumbsup:

That ebony gunstock jack is a apt choice for Black Friday, and your stag HHB is an everyday delight! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

Thank you very much buddy, those are fine choices :) :thumbsup:

After seeing @5K Qs chose a sowbelly in his knife trio, I decided my Sunday totes would be another "surf and turf" version; a BB Winchester sowbelly in abalone and an Imperial EO jack in bovine.

Excellent pairing :) :thumbsup:

Morning folks :) Boy, does this thread fly these days?! :eek: Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and that you have an enjoyable Sunday :) I'm carrying these two today, my very first GEC, a kind gift from my dear friend Duncan @Campbellclanman , along with the Hartshead Barlow which seems to be glued to my pocket at the moment ;) :thumbsup:
