    Watch Pocket Knife this week is a Colonial wireframe with clip/caplifter blade combo and "Formica" handle inlays (thanks, Dave):

    Big Knife this week is a Rough Rider fish knife that's perfect for picnics and BBQs; too bad they don't exist in Michigan in February (thanks, Mark):

    Miscellaneous Knife this week is a Case sawcut brown bone Barlow:

    I was ventilating a while back when I had just got my old remington scout (and looked for things to do with it) and was also drinking coffee. It's been a while since I've had coffee.

    For me, a blade and an opener/screwdriver is an essential tool...but I do like a knife I can open with one hand. So after 3 or so years carrying a Beer Scout on a daily basis, I’m throwing this newly purchased pair in my pockets today (I wanted to join the two-knife club too). I figured out how to open the Russlock one handed pretty quickly though my thumb is paying the price this am:thumbsup: upload_2020-2-12_6-25-38.jpeg

    That's a really cool little knife, GT.
    Kind of a crossbreed between Art Deco, Boys Knife, and Hillbilly (with full respect David). :cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks Gary, apparently we have another (lesser) storm on the way o_O I think the scales are just anodized steel (no liners). Perhaps 'Never Health Embroidery' was badly translated from 'Oil The Joints'! :D :thumbsup:

    Sorry to hear that Ron, it's still windy here, but otherwise, it's been alternatively, rain, sun, and sleet, throughout the day o_O Hope you don't suffer any property damage. Thank you my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Those two look good together Ron :thumbsup:

    Very nice John :) :thumbsup:

    Nice piano keys Rachel :cool: :thumbsup:

    Very interesting group of knives there Gary :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot Paul, hope you're doing OK brother :) :thumbsup:

    That's a couple of boxes of pure fun, brings back a lot of memories, most of us had those growing up.

    @Jack Black ~
    Got my quotes mixed up...
    I meant to say that I like Herringbone Tweed almost as much as Sheffield cutlery when thinking of things from the Isles.
    @JaxBaron ~ the nice redbone compliment was aimed at your Peanut.
    @5K Qs~ thank you!

    Thanks, Jack. I do like a black & white combo, and no actual unicorns were harmed. ;):thumbsup:

    Thanks Jeff, me too, I feel under-dressed if I leave home without my Harris tweed cap ;) I also like the 'flat-cap jigging' found on some old Sheffield knives :) :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    your thumb will get used to the Russlock, they are great knives. I've been told that everyone needs a one handed knife and no matter how many modern flippers I have tried I keep coming back to the Russlock.
