    Please don't take this the wrong way, but those covers remind me of my childhood, but in a good way. Maybe the old children's books and movies from the 70's, 80's, or something? Anyway, I like it. Very nostalgic for me just looking at it.

    This one seems to mostly end up in my pocket. The build quality of this knife is superb and I have use for all of the blades. Besides, I can carry a unique piece of abstract art around with me too.

    Thanks Gev, sounds like a great idea!!! Fantastic image of of your wonderful HSB jack; very cool covers!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Great load out for you father/son expedition; the abalone covers on your Parker are outstanding!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thanks Harvey!!! That was certainly a hard choice with your alluring threesome of Sheffield lovelies!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I'm in total agreement as those three would convince anyone; fantastic covers and photography!:thumbsup::thumbsup:;)
    Thanks Gary; Cattarraugus responded to a questionnaire they gave the Boy Scouts in the late 1920s and designed the Whitt-L-Kraft around the results, pretty cool!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Based on my fairly limited knowledge many of the Robeson bolsters seemed a bit rounder and slightly more sleek. It showed up more often on their post WWII Barlows and their other premium knives of that era, like these 2 (if that makes sense:))

    The last 2 days I've been admiring Harry's (@Old Engineer) choices and realized I have half of that equation; my totes for Monday are the GEC 78 and a late 50s Imperial BSA.:)

    I think I'll take my Appaloosa away from my two Quarter Horses and tote that around today. This #81 is a nice knife,to nice, because I have second thoughts of using it.
