    You are most welcome Harry! I’m glad we could surprise you and Nancy. I hope you will use both knives. Just like a team of borrowed mules! It’s like I was telling Pam just now! I’ve got a lot of knives. Truth be told (probably too many)! ;) We’ve got friends too. But, we’re extremely proud to know and count you and Nancy as close friends! :thumbsup: Y’all stay safe and well! :)

    IMG_2184.JPG Ebony Lambfoot and a (new!) Case peanut. A cold and windy April day with the first little flowers to poke their noses out - some kind of Siberian something or other - I can never remember the name.

    I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. I decided today was a good day for a scout.

    Looks like we may finally get some baseball. Grapefruit League vs. Cactus League. I'm not joking. We'll see.

    The Tinker is a go-to, too, for me, GT.

    What a precocious peanut! Very nice.

    A good day for a good scout, pal.

    I think I might have missed a quote or two but this software is darned unusable between 7-7:30pm Pacific as of late...

    In any case, thank you for the kind compliments, fellas!

    A splash of color for me today.

    I noticed the same phenomena between 9 and 9:30(CDT).

    A pair of handsome GECs, Dylan.

    I, too, noticed a warp in the weave as the sun crossed over the yardarm signaling the Cocktail Hour.

    What a lovely threesome you have today; a wonderful Sheffield lamb followed by a sweet BB Winchester and a classic old Solingen fixed blade, very cool!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Great shots of your very sharp looking totes today, Jeff; I can literally feel the points of both clips blades!:eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thank you kindly, Ron!!!
    I can see the clouds clearing "way out west:" it must be your excellent pairing today!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Your wonderful old tote is definitely the "cat's meow" Gev; love the unique federal style shield, as well!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I don't think he layed many of the bricks himself Gary ;) Your Nealy is cute as a button my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Sheffield cutlers still call those covers Bexoid today, even though they are now made from a more modern, and slightly harder plastic. Bexoid was cellulose acetate, and one of a range of plastics made by the British Xylonite Company. It was used by many Sheffield knife manufacturers, perhaps most famously, for WW2 era British Army clasp knives, which were produced in huge quantities in the city :thumbsup:

    Maybe Ron! :D I bet they can, they're very rare here. You stay safe pal :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Can I get :grumpy: ?! ;) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Harvey :)

    There was a time, long ago, when I used to put a lot of those in my mouth Stuart ;) :D :thumbsup:


    Fantastic pics Harvey :) :thumbsup:

    No, you got it my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Wonderful gifts from one great guy to another :) Well done Ron, looks like Pam did a great job of those masks :) Who'd have thought we'd have been gifting each other masks six months ago? o_O Sure is a great time for ugly folk! :D :thumbsup:

    Welcome to the Dark Side Stuart! :D Very interesting :cool: I forgot, I have one of those, I thought it was for sampling sausage, which is what I'm likely to use it for? ;) :thumbsup:


    Great knives for tough times Gary :thumbsup:

    Nice work Taylor, and a nicely-matched working pair :thumbsup:

    Those two go well together Ben, nice pic :thumbsup:

    Tuesday is it? :confused: Have a good one folks, and stay safe :thumbsup:

    I picked up a bit of a mixture today, a Rosewood Hartshead Barlow, beautiful John Primble English Jack gifted to me by @Duckdog , and a knife Duane @sitflyer sent me many years ago, made from a cook's knife he sailed the world with, I call it my Chef's Special ;) :thumbsup:

    The last week I've been going to work with a lower back that's out and when I'm home have been hurting too bad to want to get online so I had a LOT of catchup to do on the forum here.
    Today is my 41st b-day
    20200413_215306_copy_1512x2016.jpg 20200413_215225_copy_1512x2016.jpg

    This has been my favorite carry lately.

    That's really nice work, thanks for sharing.

    Pascha is the day all Orthodox are on the same calendar. I'm new calendar and most of my family is old calendar but Pascha we all agree on.

    Enjoy seeing pictures of herbs, I work with them all day long but in the dried and chopped or ground state.

    After seeing that cool Gehrig/Robeson post by @cigarrodog I have Robeson on my mind. :)

    Thanks, guys! :thumbsup: That Bull Nose is Eleanor’s knife (or will be some day), and maybe she was afraid I’d lose it in the snow, ‘cause today she insisted on going out and shoveling all the snow off the porch. :D


    (She really did ask to go out and shovel snow. She thinks it’s great! I figure by the time she old enough to actually clear the driveway, she won’t want to do it anymore.) :confused: :D

    That’s a great care package, Harry! Well done, Ron! I have that same Maserin, and mine came ridiculously sharp, as well. It’s a nice little knife. :thumbsup:

    I had my Big Biscuit Special with me again today. (Recycled photo, taken in West Bay, Dorset, England.)
