    That's a beauty Gev, nice to see it being carried :) :thumbsup:

    Many thanks JJ :) Those two Robeson Barlows are incredible :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    I think the main difference is that a Coachman's Knife has a large square coachman's 'key' as one of the tools :thumbsup:

    Smashing pic to start the year Dan :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    That's a great pic of your AC GT :cool: :thumbsup:

    Sounds awesome good luck! Great looking Case. Wish they would make a mini with a wharncliffe blade to go along with the full sized version.

    Congrats on the Case/Bose collaboration cattle knife, John; classy cutlery!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Sounds like you have a nice pair of RR sowbellies, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I'll look forward to seeing one maybe show up as a "random carry" someday. ;)

    I'll also look forward to 2021 eventually becoming known as the year the "intelligent" humans beat the "brainless" coronavirus! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the kind words about the knives I posted. :) I'm not really a Barlow fan, but the RR Barlow certainly seems to be a well-built knife. :thumbsup:

    I think you sent me a little RR clip-slip for some reason, Jack! :):thumbsup: I have the one you sent me and the one that came with my dogleg mini canoe permanently clipped to the "wall" of a little compartment in the backpack I typically lug around; I usually have my sowbelly and my budget canoe of the week riding in those slips.

    Fine shots of your HHB and cleaver! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    That Churchill/Cadet combo seems like a very versatile pairing, Jeff! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    That classic Case is captivating, @Catdaddy2 ! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Congrats on the new little Buck lockback; the Case half whittler looks better all the time! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Sounds like a reasonable and responsible resolution! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Ringing in the New Year with red Robesons sets a successful tone, JJ! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Love this photo, Dan! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I appreciate your salute to my sowbellies, JJ & @bigfish64 . :)
    JJ, I was thinking about why I might prefer your simple Imperial spear/pen EO jigged bone teardrop with bail over a gorgeous abalone Winchester 4-blade sowbelly. Then I read that Dawn Wells, the actress who played Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island, died recently. I think my preference for Mary Ann over Ginger is based on the same factors as my preference for the Imperial in your recently-posted pair! :rolleyes::D:thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dean; that stag sowbelly is one of my favorite knives. :) I think I learned "azul" when one of the student teachers I supervised years ago was teaching a class in Spanish at a local public high school that had a fairly large number of Latinx kids at the time. I observed that class one day when they were working on learning how to compute with positive and negative integers, and the student teacher had red (rojo) and blue (azul) chips she used to represent the numbers above and below zero. Once I picked up on those color words and added them to my knowledge of Spanish for the numbers 1 thru 10, I could basically follow the lesson. :rolleyes:

    Always an honor to be reintroduced to that old friend of yours, Dean! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    Thanks for sending me a replica that I now tend to use as my "standard" to which medium stock knives are compared. ;)

    Fit for a king! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Your Queen canoe is world-class, Mike! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, John; I think ANY knife looks pretty triumphant in that pose. ;)

    Pretty and practical pair, Greg! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    - GT

    Thank you, Jack. That giraffe bone is gorgeous and a wonderful gift! :thumbsup:

    Thank you for your comments and story about Spanish color mathematics. I learned the Italian word for red which is very similar to the Spanish word in Germany one year. I was walking with several of my students from Italy to get dinner and one of them was teaching me the correct pronunciation for 'rosso' when suddenly she shouted it out. That's when I figured out she was talking about the traffic light. :(:)

    Regarding the Schrade stockman, you are welcome. I also am thankful for my Olive Green Farmer you gave me. :)
