Now this has been a lot of fun! I had two old Buck 110’s. The knife in the top photographs is a three dot and the knife in the bottom three photographs is a two dot. I sent them back to Buck for refurbishment, and they did an excellent job. I feel like I have two brand new knives, but, in fact, they are old survivors ready to go to work for another few decades. Buck is truly a great company, and I can see why their fans are so loyal.

Today’s carry is a special one for me. This is my “Joseph” knife. Joseph is my 10 yr old adopted son. Today we are celebrating the 5th anniversary of his Forever Family Day. This is a huge milestone for us!

We were told by a child psychologist that , because Joseph was an older kid (five years old) when we got him, it would take at least five years for him to feel stable and secure in our home. It has been five good, but long, hard years, and by God’s grace he is definitely stable and locked in to our family.

He has autism and struggles emotionally and socially, but is the sweetest kid you could ever meet. I carry this knife for him because it reminds me to maintain my prayers and hope that God will heal his mind as he grows. And I think it’s awesome that the South Carolina motto is “While I Breathe I Hope”. And as a South Carolina boy through and through, I can get patriotic about my state in a heartbeat!

I’ve been connecting with the Porch community for the last five months and really enjoyed the knife talk, but have been pleasantly surprised at the amount of brotherhood present. I thought this would be the right place to share and celebrate a really good day for me and my family.

This just made my day!! Joseph is obviously thriving with his ‘forever family!’ I’m sure his dad is cultivating his love of knives and the Clemson Tigers!! My two kids and son-in-law are all Clemson graduates. It’s a good time to be a Tiger!!! Enjoy this special day.

I'm going with these two GECs that I really like. :)
Thank you JJ. Kind of you to say that. Both the 66 and the 54 are great examples of the patterns. Great jigging on the 66, and I’m especially fond of the 54. Nicely arranged and imaged.

Great to see those two together my friend :) :thumbsup:
Thank you Jack. Your double Lamb Foot carry is simply the best.:thumbsup:

Congratulations on your special milestone. The joy filled expressions tell the whole store. Long may it continue.

Decided the heck with it and took all knives out of my pockets (Lambfoot, Trapper, Sowbelly) and slipped this Buck 500 Duke in my pocket and put it's sheath on my belt in case I want to carry it that way later in the day. Even took this fresh picture of it. I'm sure the "500" can handle any task that comes along today.

Besides knife photos, I love garden photos.

May God continue to bless your family.
Our youngest is a wonderful young woman with Down Syndrome, and many of her buds are autistic. And I know families who have adopted into the club. They are some of the most incredible people you’ll ever meet.
Here’s Andie keeping me company in a high tunnel on the farm.

How do you decode the Buck dots?

Just don’t panic when you feel that empty sheath!
