    We forget the old ways at our peril, as Sophie Marceau said while garotting Pierce Brosnan.
    Thanks- an experiment in carrying the straight and curved edges as separate knives.
    That's a Buck 317 Ridgeway. According to an old thread in the Buck sub-forum, it was meant for the UK and EU countries that frown on lock-backs. I thought the "7" should be in the middle of a Chinese-made Buck, but at $25 I wasn't too surprised to see "China" on it. According to the old thread, these were made for Europe and not meant for the US market.

    Thanks.
    It was time to pay forward some of the good fortune and generosity I've seen over the years.
    I've given him multiple knives, tools, hatchets, sharpening gear, and now I'm getting him into airguns so I've got a shooting buddy.

    I haven't entirely decided, for today.

    That's a very nice looking imported Buck. I'd bet they would have sold quite a number of those here.

    I think I'll put this oldie in the pocket today:

    Colonial Stainless Steel peanut size knife for a rainy Sunday, going to Brunch in Morehead City shortly with my wife. Supposed to be high speed boat races today offshore at Morehead but not sure with the weather. OH

    It’s not cheap or easy to find the really big tines that allow for that flat radiused stag with bark.
    That fungus is indeed purty. I am pretty sure that one is called Intestinitus Insideoutus, aka: Orange Death Devil.:D
    Nice knives, as usual, Ron. And thanks for the well wishes!

    My yeller ones just felt right today.

At four feet up, it’s about 14” in diameter now. 7FD64601-4401-4911-A6E2-D94936E7E4FD.jpeg

    Thank you.
    With the slant of the bolster, they got a UK-legal 3" cutting edge on a 2 & 3/4" blade.
    It's sharp, too. I was processing mail and walking at the same time, and didn't know I'd cut myself until I found out where that sticky red stuff was coming from.

    Knives may come and go but few are truly priceless and irreplaceable. E5D70EC1-9329-4988-879A-693089614279.jpeg

    When I’m working outside, or know I’ll be on a job site, I usually pair my 93 and Farmer. 93 and any of the larger ALOX models seems like a a great “get it done” pairing!

    @RLB0414 it is the Case Backpocket, don't know the model no.
    It is the Carhart version which originally had textured g10 covers. I didnt care for those so I changed them to rosewood.
