    This is one knife that I use a lot. The first time I carried it, I was at a horse show. A friend saw it in my side sheath and asked if she borrow it. Of course, I immediately said yes being happy for my knife to already prove its usefulness. About an hour later, she returned it with a bent tip. She used it to pry a broken key from the lock of her horse trailer! Oh well, it is a user!

    It is also one of Case’s best current production efforts. The action is buttery smooth. I prefer knives without half stops. And the hoof pick works well.

    I Flitzed off the patina last night and tried my new buffing attachment for my drill. Looking slender and sleek.

    Hess Mini Caper. Use this handy knife almost daily. The blade grind is pretty bad and it gets a little squirrelly at the top
    Of the tang near the handle. Not impressed but it’s a user for sure.

    Thanks, Jack! :thumbsup: Is that some sort canvas bag or pack that your Waynorth Lambsfoot is resting on? I noticed it was made in Minnesota.

    Same here, Ron. I figure anything’s better than nothing. I did order a few fabric masks online. (I’m the only one in our house who ever sews anything, and that’s just to patch up a hole in a pair of pants or something. I think mask sewing would be outside my skill set.) :D

    The Ebony #25 is one of my favorite knives. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    I like that TL-29 with the stamped handle. I’m not particularly envious of your hauling job, though. Last fall I had to haul 12 tons of river rock (and maybe half that amount of fill dirt) around the house to the backyard by myself with a wheelbarrow and shovel. I didn’t think I’d ever finish, but I sure was glad when I finally did! :eek: :D

    Very cool knives, Harry! I love the bone on both sides of that spear point, and the double stamped bolster is a unique little something extra! :thumbsup:

    I had this #25 in my pocket today. I bought this knife from Bob (aka @BigBiscuit), who had added the EO notch, which I really like on these spear point #25’s, and I always think of him when I’m carrying it. It’s definitely a “keeper.” :)

    Terrific knife and photo Dwight! :thumbsup: :)

    Barrett, I’ve got several knives that came from Bob. As far as I’m concerned they’re priceless! By the way, that’s a great photo of your #25! :thumbsup:

    I miss my stockman. :(
    I think I'll drop a (BTU) Old Timer 858OT in my pocket with the other four. I haven't carried the 858OT yet ...
