    Good morning! I went out around 6 to start Pam's car to warm up and to roll the trash to the curb. It was 21°F with no wind and we had a frost that looked like a young snow! :eek: So my photos are from indoors this morning! :rolleyes: I'm carrying a new Opinel No.8 Sandvik with a Walnut handle, along with my Rosewood Hartshead Barlow! Y'all stay safe out there! :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Ron. :)
    I really enjoy the Queen Stockman.
    It's not as big as a Medium Stockman, but not as small as a Small Stockman.

    The blade with a belly and the straight edge compliment each other nicely, as do the locking and non-locking. Nice pairing.

    What size is that one John? Is it D2 and is it about the same size as a 34OT?

    There was a knife shop in Ottawa that sold Citadel knives. While I was on my initial knife buying spree, I was rather intrigued with Citadel knives but always seemed to bypass them and bought something else (usually ones that had a butterfly on them). The assortment of friction folders always drew me, but alas I never bit.

    I always bought my knives at the store but meant to view the Citadel knives and handle a few. Unfortunately, the knife store closed last November and my chance to see those knives up close and personal is now gone and likely forever.

    I've never carried one of my Opinels with an eye towards it being an edc. I'm going to carry this #6 olive wood today and see how it goes. IMG_5932(1)_copy_1024x849.jpg

    Vince, you're an international man of mystery with your French knives and Danish cookies! That Langres always grabs my attention! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    That's a splendid sleeveboard! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Ron, and same to you and yours. :)

    Ron & Jeff, it's great that you could meet up for a while during Jeff's holiday travels! :):thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Well-played, Dean! :thumbsup:;):thumbsup:

    Congrats on the new Buck 503, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: The 503 (and 501) sure look like fine lockbacks.

    Impressive rojo mojo in that pair of red bone Cases, Steve! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Mighty cute couple, JJ! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I really like the canoe pattern, but sometimes worry that most canoes are VERY similar to one another. Your example is certainly a nonstandard example of the pattern! :eek::cool::cool:

    Terrific trio of knives, José! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    A stag SAK is pretty much a dream come true!! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Delightful duo, Jack! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: That all-stainless Rodgers is tasteful gentility personified (more accurately, knifified, I suppose :rolleyes:).

    Miscellaneous Knife of the Week for me is a Schrade whittler (thanks, Tony):

    Big Knife of the Week, a Rough Rider Improved Muskrat, is probably longer than average, but not particularly large overall:

    Watch Pocket Knife of the Week is a Chinese Imperial mini canoe (shown here with its big brother):

    Beautiful stag, José. I was going to say both sides match pretty well, then realized it's the same side in both pics! :D I am enjoying my FP Thiers knife too.
    It is a beauty, gift from @Âchillepattada. As for the Danish cookies, I saw my daughter with a small tin. She keeps sewing stuff in it. I mentioned that my grandmother always had a tin of Danish butter cookies around, and wanted to buy some. I guess she went shopping with my wife, because they brought that tin home recently. Didn't last long, even though a "serving size" is four cookies!
    Carrying the Laguiole again today:
