    Fancy canoe for this week is a Buck jigged bone canoe that's not very fancy but fairly rare (thanks, Clay):

    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.

    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!

    That is a good looking pair of knives, Harry.:thumbsup: 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.

    Fantastic looking jigging and color on the bone handles of both knives.:thumbsup: I love seeing pics of old classics like those two.

    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:

    Thanks, Paul. :thumbsup:
    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 :cool:. Definitely a treat to own, and one of my favorites. :thumbsup::)

    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.
