It’s already a stunningly nice morning here on the Il/Wi line, so get outside!

Schatt #69 spear blade jack and an American made Finnish style Puukko knife I just received a couple days ago. Puukko has osage and antler handle with pewter trim. I made a couple sheaths for the Puukko the past two days. A belt sheath with whitetail deer leg hide trim, an idea I got from seeing a similar Puukko sheath. Also made a pocket sheath. My leather work skills are limited but pretty pleased with the results all things considered.:) View attachment 1331778 View attachment 1331779 View attachment 1331780
Your leatherworking skills are just fine.
Cool idea having one for the belt/one for the pocket.

12th day carrying only a Jackknife - today my carry is this Case 6225-1/2 that I bought out of a Case display in a small engine repair shop 15 years ago. It was the first Case Knife I ever owned, bought it when I went to replace a lost Schrade 108OT and learned from the dealer they had moved offshore - I wanted a USA made pocketknife. OH

Jose’ and John, I sure hope you gentlemen have something a little rougher in your other pocket, because these are much too pretty to use.

Nice leather work, John.
Thank you, Jeff. :)
Both of those are users, the only way they will become "rough" enough is if I keep using them. ;)

Yep! Saw our first oriole this morning in our old cherry tree. They come back & nest in one of our trees every year, but we can't always find the nest until Fall.

And, yes, it is good to see the sun today. We had a real toad choker here yesterday- 4 1/4" of rain in about 12 hours. We're fine, because I had two 3/4hp submersible pumps running in our basement, but the fire company was going around last night pumping some of our neighbours basements. We have a good sized stream running through our property & it was roaring all night. It's gone down a bit this morning, but the road is washed out, and it's just a general mess around here.

But......it's a beautiful day today & we'll get our daily walk in. And here's some knife content:

My new love and I are still getting to know one another. I am hoping I don’t need it today as it’s chewed both of my thumb nails so badly I can’t open it at this point. The pull cuts are the sharpest I’ve ever run across. I hope Case can round those over when they are fixing the blade play. If not I’ll have to come up with a different plan... 1D42223B-CCBF-4664-9B94-AA359ADCC5EA.jpeg

My ONLY complaint with mine is that the nail nick for the main clip blade is almost hidden behind the secondary blades. It's at an angle & has chewed up my thumbnail a time or two. I wish there was a way they could've done that differently. The larger Premium Stockman isn't like that.

I carry this pair basically everyday, I have found that I really like having a one hand opening/closing knife ... the Russlock is that knife plus it is a great fidgeting/rubbing knife. If its out of my pocket, it is cutting some non-food item or being fidgeted with. I carry the mini trapper for cutting fruit, salami, cheese, etc, etc AND for opening bottles of beer. OK, some of you never open bottles but for me a cap lifter is essential!!! View attachment 1331521
Nice pair there. Amber bone is great material :thumbsup:
I should get a Russlock again. Had one about a decade ago when I was strictly a modern knife guy. The Russlock seemed small so I sold it o_O

Thank you very much for the very kind words my friend . The User is the Blade Forums knife which was gifted to me by @Half/Stop a couple of weeks ago and the Feel Good knife is the Fixed Blade which is an Arno Bernard Galago with a Wart Hog Ivory handle . It is something that I had wanted for a few years . I have No Need for it , but it does make me Feel Good . It was a gift from my wife .

:D I love that olive fork! :D
Yet they go together strikingly well :)
Thank you, Jack. It's felt like a very fitting pair these days.
I'm going with a hardier pair today, hoping to get a little time in the garden.
