    I'll declare this Alox Appreciation Day. ;)
    Dazzling knives due to their dependability! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Excellent pair, John; good to see you carrying that "Queen reboot"! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    :):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I always enjoy seeing selections from your stock of vintage Barlows, Wayne! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Notable pair of knives, José! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I used to carry them all on my person, but sitting on a wallet full of knives in my left rear pocket didn't do my back any good, and when I used to visit student teachers in local schools, it was a hassle unloading all my pockets before entering a school! :rolleyes: Now I carry many of them in my backpack or in a fannypack that hangs on the arm of my chair when I get to my office.

    To get the vertical orientation behind the suspender, your sheath will have to be capable of horizontal carry on a belt. I have 3 pairs of suspenders that I alternate. Two of them are 1.5" wide and the sheath fits nicely, but one is 2" wide and the sheath "loop" is too narrow to fit.
    (I actually have 2 sheaths, as shown in that pic I posted previously, so I'll often have a total of 4 knives hidden behind the narrow suspenders. :rolleyes:)

    Thanks for the info. :)

    I have a lot of RR knives, but none in the jigged black bone; your sowbelly and copperhead look great! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Barrett. :) We obviously had similar (but kind of reversed :rolleyes:) thoughts.

    I admire your healthy perspective, Harry! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Harvey. :) Alox Pox is as infectious as COVID-19, but fortunately not nearly as deadly.

    Impressive pair, harvey! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: That spike knife is a new type for me!

    I assume that asymmetric construction on the canoe is to create space and minimize blade crinking.
    Thanks for the approving comment. :)

    Notable pair of Barlows, Jack! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    I don't recall Barry posting on The Porch for quite some time.

    Thanks, JJ. :)

    I'm quite a fan of Osage Orange covers, but in your pair of wondrous whittlers, I think I prefer the Robeson. :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Quite a rare pair, Ron! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Outstanding wood duo, John! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    The piano sonata continues! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Carrying a few old barlows this week for the pure satisfaction of it. Along with a non-traditional in the other pocket in case I have to cut something serious...

    Thank you, Gary! Impressive loadout that you carry. I imagine you are prepared for almost all contingencies.

    Nice looking Cadet, Gary. Red Alox always looks good IMHO. :thumbsup:

    Gorgeous Barlow, Wayne. :thumbsup::thumbsup: I've never seen that Barlow stamp before.

    Thank you JJ. I’m already on record as loving that Osage 29. The Robeson whittler is pretty special, too. Fine image.

    Nice Barlow pair. What a sweet watch pocket Barlow.

    Always appreciate you illustrating your post with vintage images.

    Thank you kindly GT.
