    This is the knife I used to slice limes. Not needed for televised sports, but nice to have in hand.

    Showing off my Father’s Day present from my lovely wife, who actually gave me this 23 Pioneer Trapper a week ago. I didn’t carry the Bull Buster today as well; just for size comparison. Otherwise, my pants would’ve fallen down. Happy Father’s Day, everyone!

    Cool knife and photo! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: When I grew up on a Michigan dairy farm in the 1950s and 1960s, I remember we used to aim to get first cutting baled by July 4. By that standard, you're WAY ahead of the game. (Actually, by the time I graduated from high school in 1969, we had first cutting finished much earlier, as we baled less and put more "haylage" in silos.)

    Couple of beautiful chestnut jigged bone Cases, Shane! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. :) I'm grateful to Ron that one of those Cases came to me from him, and two others were also generous gifts from "pillars of The Porch" in my early days at BF. I should update my group shot to include a teardrop, a medium stockman, and a muskrat from that series that I've purchased since taking the old photo I recently posted.

    Thanks for the correction, Vince. :) I checked a Case dealer website and was amazed by the variety of little lockbacks they offer!
    That French stag sheepsfoot by Thomachot you posted is distinctive!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Notable pair of desirable big knives! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, JJ. Is your Alox a Farmer? What color is it? Makes a stunning pair with that Pocket Carver! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    I'm adding it to my list, too! :):cool::cool:

    Yowza, that cougar-clawed Churchill is a champ! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    You're back in the saddle again with that pair, John! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Great pairing, Jack; that Joker is a joy-inducer! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That scout makes me wanna shout, Tom! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Stuart. :) It looks better than it actually is; youthful indiscretions have resulted in a bent backspring and a homemade bail in a buggered bolster. :rolleyes: Still a favorite though, and more fully-functional than I am. ;)

    Cut thin to win with that pair, Stuart! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    For me, that's probably one of the most distinctive, recognizable knives on The Porch, Dean!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Unforgettable photo, José! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the additional info, Jon. :) I'd have never guessed that it had copper covers; I'm fascinated by the all-metal folders! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Harvey. :)

    Thanks, JJ & Jack. :) I won that stag I*XL canoe in a GAW and discovered when it arrived that the serial number on the bolster was my birthdate! :eek::thumbsup::cool:;)

    I have a rich fantasy life, and sometimes imagine that BF members show me a pair of knives and say, "Which ONE would you like more?" But I get paralyzed by pairs like Steve's and JJ's because I can't decide which member of the pair is more desirable in either case! :(:eek::D
    Superb pairs, gents!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Nice to meet your old friends, Jack & John! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Dignified and dramatic!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    That's a good habit to have, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    I've cut myself a couple of times when I dropped an open knife while setting up a photo and tried to catch it on the way down.:rolleyes:

    Both girls were home today. They made me crepes for breakfast and then we took a mid day ride to Mt Rainier.

    You can’t see it but there were 3 bears feeding in an avalanche shoot and a mountain goat in the cliffs above them.


    But this chocolate colored fella was a lot closer!!

    Thanks, Gary. Gift from @Âchillepattada. It's called a "Langres", from where it comes from. Not strictly a sheepsfoot, though--there is some belly in the blade. Great to use in the kitchen.

    Long day, drove inland a few hours to my sisters for a big Father’s Day family meal and gathering. Carried a Case Eisenhower penknife today - got used a couple of times too (opening some fishing tackle my brother brought with him). OH

    Thanks Jack!!! I didn't know it was now officially Summer, thanks for that, too!
    That looks like an awesome book! You have a great "book worthy" pair that show 2 great Sheffield achievements, both past and present! :D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thank you for all the kind words today, Gary!!!
    It's always great to see your wonderful quartet; the Euler's identity knife is also a real thing of beauty, too!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thank you very kindly, Harvey!!!
    Three very tasty treats for your Father's day; the first two made me hungry and the third, your CJ, just makes me drool!:eek::D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
