Yes, I was happy to get the all clear. Thanks!
Stockman of the Week is a stag bone Marbles with "damascus etch" blades (thanks, Randy):
Sowbelly of the Week is a Rough Rider Silver Select sowbelly stockman:
Fancy canoe for this week is a Buck jigged bone canoe that's not very fancy but fairly rare (thanks, Clay):
Plain Canoe of the Week is a RR sawcut bone model that has kinda fancy bolsters:
I've only had this one a few months, I was carrying around a Wenger before but my wife decided to adopt (read steal) it from me. Although some complain the alox scratch easily, I for one kinda like the worn look.
Toting these two wood covered jacks from S&M and GEC showing their pile sides.
These today . Arno Bernard Galago and Northfield 23 . Both carried in slips . Slip for the 23 was provided by @sunknife .
Working on another package heat pump. Kind of like how this picture turned out.
The old coat hangar lock pick trick!
I used to know a guy who’d grown up on Chicago’s north side. I think he got into Wrigley Field for every Cubs home game as a kid, and never bought a ticket. No coat hangars needed ~ they had dozens of ways to sneak in. I think it involved shinnying up drain pipes to get over walls, gaps in fences, etc
So no Bat Flu for you! Good news.
Now avoid those people!
I’m going to have to work on my pie game.
My hands and pockets should take care of that.
That's a fancy knife.
Where did you get the replacement blade?
That is a good looking pair of knives, Harry. Sorta of odd to see a folder/fixed combo where the folder is so much larger in scale than the fb.
That is a handsome Arno knife though and I like the small fixed blades as much as the larger ones.
I carried an osage moose and bone canoe today.
What is the plant?
Vintage Case Jack (1940-1964) and Vintage Robeson Boy Scout
Fantastic looking jigging and color on the bone handles of both knives. I love seeing pics of old classics like those two.
Some lovely bones.
This is really an extraordinary knife. Haven't posted it much lately because I sent it back to get the blade centered a little better. Very fast service. Just got it back today. A birthday knife. Easily my favourite out of nearly 50. Just perfect, really. Will be taking more pics soon. Sitting with my wife in the living room, sipping Chardonnay, and don't feel like being a photographer right now.
Le Thiers par Fontenille Pataud, 14C28 steel, boxwood handle. Just a perfect size--about 4 1/2 in. closed.
Edit: couple of more pics:
Trestle Pine Portage.
Yes, I think we had a conversation about it aforetime & it very well may be . The radius end of the covers take this one to a whole new level . Definitely a treat to own, and one of my favorites.
Thanks for the kind words Greg . I do not expect to ever have to use the AB . I bought a Grandson-in-law an AB in Spalted Maple a couple of years ago and I was so blown away with the workmanship , it was hard to give away . Since then , I had always wanted one in Wart Hog Tusks . I have an older Schrade Sharp Finger that I bought at an auction for nothing that is like new with the box and I have never used it because I feel it is too small for me to use as a fixed blade . It belonged to a 94 year old WWII Vet and I do not need it . Now I am rambling on .
Had to switch to this one today
My buddy really liked the Vic cadet I had in my pocket so I gave it to him.
Perfect timing too, because I just ordered the green one I've been wanting yesterday.
