    Heavenly horn! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    "Pleasant" is a perfect way to put it! :)

    My Electrician knows I'm very fond of it, but it wonders why I don't take the kind of glamor shots you take of yours! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the info, Bruce. :) Looks like a cool piece of furniture, but must have required a lot of patience to build!

    How do you like that double lock back from Rough Ryder? I often think about buying one, then remind myself that I'm not a huge fan of just a normal lockback folder. :rolleyes:

    Great pair, Jack! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Really like that darker, richer brown on the smooth parts, compared to Case's usual lighter color bone stag! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    As Paul Simon once sang: Gee, but it's great to be back home... Just trying to keep my customers satisfied! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's one pulchritudinous pen knife, Mike!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Fantastic family heirloom, Jer! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: What brand is that? Don't think I've ever seen a non-SAK 6-"blade" scout!

    Another marvelous keepsake! :thumbsup::cool::cool: What brand is that old knife with the Formica countertop covers?

    Congrats on the new covers! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Gotta be rare in CC, TX, Vince; be safe! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Looks good, Dean! :cool::thumbsup::cool: (And I've had more seasonal scenes than I can handle. :rolleyes:)

    Interesting pair, José! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Are those old Secretaries, or new Excelsiors, or what?

    Vivid Valentine's Day knives, JJ! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The bolster!! :thumbsup::thumbsup: And the bone is just as outstanding as that on your recently-posted Challenge knife! :cool::cool:

    :thumbsup::)

    Your pallid poultry looks seriously genetically modified! :eek::rolleyes:

    I think on February 1, we were more than 3 feet behind the seasonal average snowfall for that point in the winter. But I think I've shoveled snow 15 of 17 February days! :eek::thumbsdown:

    Definitely Fat Tuesday, Jack! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Two fine knives that I'd never heard of until I came here 7 years ago! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks. I haven't seen a 3-layer non-SAK scout elsewhere either. It isn't marked. It has steel liners, so I wonder if it's something like a Kent or Camco. Somebody suggested Colonial, but the jigging is different from my Colonial ForestMaster of pre-shell-handle days. Maybe an Imperial? My problem with all of the above is, when did any of the above not stamp their knives? I can't even be sure it's American, because Grandpa used to go back and forth to England. He was doing well in Cleveland after a rocky start.

    Thank you my friend :) :thumbsup:

    That's a nice one :) :thumbsup:

    Many thanks JJ, classic Buck, and your La Camarguais is just sublime :) :thumbsup:

    Really nice work there :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks buddy :) :thumbsup:

    I carry an Electrician in my bag everyday, but very rarely photograph it. It's a great EDC I think :thumbsup:

    Nice to see that Ring-Opener Gary, maybe I'll carry one for Metal Monday next week :) :thumbsup:

    Yay! Good to have you back Rachel :) Black on white, a memorable photo :) :thumbsup:

    Today’s carry

    Warming here slightly, apparently more “stuff” on the horizon though. A great day to all.

    Looks good! I went and replaced the handle on mine entirely. I feel like it could use a little more contouring - it’s a little clunky-looking - but I don’t carry it much so that’s pretty low on my list of things to do for now.

    Thanks. :)
    I think it's just a question of angle.
    The one underneath is a simple horn-handled lambfoot from A. Wright.
    The other is less common, it is a higonokami with an elm burr handle created by Julien Maria. (cutlery craftsman from the south of France). https://www.instagram.com/couteliermaria/

    Destined For Duty :cool:

    This turned up yesterday after a lengthy wait and I'm more than pleased as it's a favourite CASE pattern of mine. Since CASE has embargoed their official sellers from selling abroad it's become very difficult for me to get hold of them. :mad: I reached out to an esteemed Forum member and asked Bruce if he could get hold of one for me, which he very kindly did. Moreover, he included a gift as well :cool: but more of that in another thread;) Just great all round this knife, the Amber Bone is beautiful and after a wash&brush up it's a very snappy item! some people like to knock CASE or have had bad experiences, I don't share that, always ben pleased with them: a reasonable Traditional at a reasonable price.

    Thanks, Will

    Very good that it made it there and through customs, etc. Will - sure takes a bit of time though. For today my carry is an oldie, worn but with plenty of good life in it yet - Frontier Medium Stockman - one of my first pawn shop saves (from the junk pile) a good ten+ years ago. These are good knives, the equal of an Old Timer of the same era. OH
