    Carrying this Case XX 92 Texas Jack today. Made when Case was at the top of their game, it's hard to find a finer knife. Got lucky for $15 at a flea market. Still with factory edge.:D
    Hope everyone has a good one.:thumbsup:








    Lovely Stag, Jack and cool fish knives!:cool:

    I think the posts quoted here are mostly from Monday; I'm running behind again. :(
    :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's impressive DIY jigging, Jeff!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: What tool(s) did you use? Is some kind of "jig" actually involved? I don't think I know the origin of the word in the bone context. Was the re-assembly "secret" the one about a razor blade shim in the pivot?

    I appreciate your remarks, Harvey. :)

    Thanks for the CJ info, JJ; I learn something on BF almost every day! :cool::thumbsup: (Now if only I could remember it all ...:rolleyes:)
    What's your traveling trio?
    I'm definitely "over the moon" about the sowbelly that arrived Monday; have to get some photos.

    Impressive cumulative blade length in that pair! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Mark. :)

    Thanks for the recipe; it sure turned out well! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Bewitching bone, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Stellar stag canoe, Gary! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Is that the smaller size, or the normal 3 5/8"?

    Y:eek:WZA! That's a preeminent pair, Nick! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Sounds like irrefutable logic to me! ;):cool::cool:

    Thanks for the info about the red-butt sheep, Jack! ;):thumbsup::cool:
    Outstanding duo for your York trip! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the personal attention you give to so many of us in your multi quotes, Stuart! :):thumbsup:

    Your trio of Case blues blew me away, Stuart! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dean. :) Re-discovering a knife you've had so long must be a treat! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Such a distinctive knife! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: You have a lot of splendid Barlows, Dean, but that's probably the one I like best. :)

    Thanks for the research report, John. :):thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: First-rate trio of knives!

    Thanks! That's the Baby, Gary. I picked this one up at the Zippo - Case Store in Bradford, PA. It was the nicest of the 2 they had available.

    Nice! You have a beautiful one with great bone color.

    I guess it was no surprise that the bigger knives fared the best.

    Nice reverse dogleg, Dave. :cool: :thumbsup:

    That’s a stunner to me!
    Wow. This is why I like to poke around a flea market once in a while.
    That’s nice at any price.
    I appreciate your compliments and interest, my friend! Very kind.

    I used this bit in a Dremel.
    Put on the cheaters/magnifying readers, and picked out one of my Voos knives to set in front of me for inspiration.

    No, not the razor blade thing. Sometimes, after I get the last pin in, and test out the pull, and how well the spring and blade work together, the pull is too hard. This one was darn near impossible to open, I couldn’t imagine using it like that after sharpening the blade.
    I found a thread from a few years ago in which @glennbad mentioned carefully working the blade tang to ease the pull. It works. And also helped my understanding of how the tang and spring work together in opening, half stops, and closing.

    Schrade Walden 163 rope knife in walnut, and a modded Camillus TL-29 in bocote for Woodnesday.

    I grew this sugar maple from seed, and it’s now about 14 or 15 inches at the base. Every year, one particular branch starts to turn color while the entire rest of the tree is solidly green still.
