Thanks, Gary! Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday . What's for dinner ?
Great Stuff. They are after all tools and implements, made to be used. There is just something about a user, to me they look like they are supposed to. Some of the photos on the forum of users just look fantastic.
Hope you all have a good week, and take care. Stockman getting a run today.
Peanut-ish Knife of the Week is a Chinese Schrade 18OT Mighty Mite linerlock:
Stag/Horn Knife of the Week is, coincidentally, a Peanut, a Case stag model:
Lambsfoot of the Week is another Chinese Schrade, the 19OT LandShark, but I call mine LambShark:
The Tonic Water crisis is over.
This bog oak has some really wild variations. I love it.
I have a little Bear knife in my pocket
Cant seem to post pics
Happy sunday. ATB
Lazy Sunday in October front porch carry.
JJ, what year is the Soldier? That one is the only knife that currently occupies my short list...
That is a wonderful find, with honest-to-goodness pocket worn bone.
Bog Oak has always intrigued me, never seen it in person. How does it feel in the hand, and is there a more common wood you can compare it to?
I'm sure how high the polish is taken makes a difference, but it seems very similar to ebony in the two I have. The biggest difference is that variations are in color as well as texture, but the wood is still pretty dense and hard (unlike old barn chestnut, where you can feel the grains and even mark up the wood with your nail). I don't notice the texture differences without pressing my thumb or fingers over the grains. In hand it feels about like other woods.
Went with a thrifty pair today while doing a variety of handy man projects at my daughters house. Large Kissing Crane and a Imperial Ireland with a punch.
I love everything about your old Boker. The acquisition, the history, the cleanup, and that old congress itself.
What a beautiful 49 year old Case!
Love the Utica, Steve!
What a nice old Camillus. And to echo Paul, great bone!
Nice Wengers! If I’m not mistaken, the Eddie Bauer is the Backpacker II. Correct?
Been a great fall day. Took time out ftom tending the smoker and hitting the like button in some great knife pics, to go snag some arugula, spinach, green onions, and beets for our salad. I decided to bring in all of the onions, because I’m expecting the dreaded “F” word soon. We had a frost last week that ended our long run of fresh yellow wax beans every night.
Have a great evening!
r8shell, thanks, and I feel lucky to have found it! I was not much of a looker at that time, but the shield spoke to me...
Thanks, it was a couple years back when I got it, It was gently cleaned with mineral oil and WD40, nothing agressive at all. If you click on the photo's they will expand to full size and you can clearly see where at some point a file had been used on the blades, perhaps to sharpen them?
I love to just fondle and admire this one, the color of the bone, the deep patina of the blades and springs, and sometimes imagine it can be heard telling stories of a not too distant time past...
I totally agree 100%.
My favorite Stockman pattern.
