    I’m glad you like carrying that one @JohnDF, because I sure enjoy seeing it.

    As for me, I was inspired by @JonMcD today.[​IMG]

    Alox of the Week is a Vic Farmer (thanks, Tom):

    non-Alox SAK of the Week is a Vic Tinker:

    Bailed non-SAK this week is a Marbles Workman scout knife (doesn't actually have a bail, but it OUGHT to):

    International Knife of the Week is a knife my daughter bought for me in the workshop of Mariano Zamarano, a famous Toledo, Spain knife/sword maker, but it's actually just a production Nieto climber with curly birch handle to which Zamarano added his blade etch. Still a very nice knife, though!

    Nice vintage lineup, Jerry!

    Sure looks like a winner.
    You know, when it comes to traditional pocket knives, [email protected]/Stop has forgotten more than I will ever know!

    By the powers vested in me, I hereby designate page 8799 as a Barlow rich environment!

    I found it to be a difficult decision, but I decided to finally give the half whittler a break and for some reason I settled on the cadet.

    Very nice Dee, I could be wrong but I think that may have been my Walnut Clip/Pen from a while back? I rounded the ends, then sold it here then saw it on the bay shortly after. If it is it's neat that you have it now:cool::thumbsup:

    This post should come with a trigger warning for those of y’all who aren’t ready for the s-word yet. (I’m looking a you, @5K Qs and @CelloDan.) ;)

    We got maybe 4 or 5 inches of the stuff today. This photo was taken after I cleared a quick path on the front deck (obviously it was still coming down). I’m really liking this little Joker (a gift from @Jack Black; thanks again!).


    I can tell you that there was at least one person who was quite happy that it was snowing. :D

    Thanks Rachel :) Great idea, hope you had a good time :) :thumbsup:

    Many thanks for the kind words Paul :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Ron, I'll have to carry it more often :) :thumbsup:

    I love that pairing my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Terrific twosome Gev :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    I like a stiff pull, but sometimes I wonder what on earth Wright's are thinking of. I can pinch open all my Lambsfoot knives, but the very last one I got from them, which was a sample, I had to use pliers to open the blade. Just flushing out all the gunk they leave in the pivot, with oil and compressed air, will make a difference, but in the case of this knife I had to smooth the corners of the tang with a file. It's OK now though, apart from the appalling mess they made of the edge o_O Good luck, I'm sure you can ease it up, without having to resort to a notch :thumbsup:

    Glad to hear that buddy! :D Thank you very much :) :thumbsup:

    Two very cool knives there JJ, and a great pic of them. I have some old tortoiseshell, but find the acrylic just as attractive :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    The Farmer is one of my favourite SAKs Gary :) That's very cheeky of Zamarano, hope the premium for the blade-etch wasn't too high o_O I remember a once well-known English knife-maker who used to buy Brusletto blades, and then grind the etch off, before claiming them as his work. At least he hafted them himself! :rolleyes:

    Looking good Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    Your photos always give me a big grin Barrett :) Glad you're enjoying the Joker pal :) :thumbsup:

    Back with my Hartshead Barlow today, and a Buck 301, gifted to me by @r8shell :) :thumbsup:
