Love that! I remember when I was a kid, and saw the movie Jaws in the theater. Before the movie started they showed the Patterson film of Bigfoot. By the time that night was over I was terrified (and hooked). I didn’t go in the water or the woods for months!
Hey, big fan also of the “B&C-less” #15 B&C. Just wondering, has that hole caused any issues with the knife BESIDES resale value? I think I did get some apple juice in my ebony once! (Forgot the pics)

That one looks too new and shiny... needs more pocket time.
That's a very pretty pairing.
Unfortunately, he's got a nice small collection of knives but never carries any of them.I hope he's got a nice traditional knife to carry
I've been browsing small fixed blade knives and the Guardian 3 is on my short list.
I have that same knife, it lives in my Jeep.
Lol... that's awesome.The Big Foot Mock its existence at your peril .....
Aw, shucks - twarn't nuthin'!And triple C's... very impressive.
Very nice pairing, John!
I don't really know exactly what a "premium stockman" is, but I'd sure call that Camillus premium, Steve!Camillus 4 line stockman and a TC Barlow
I'm usually not a fan of camel bone and the uneven dye it often has, but your blue one is an exception! That reminds me of summer sky, which looks fantastic to me at this time of year!I like this pair- lots of function, and in my eyes, beauty. Blue camel bone is hard to beat for me.
Epitome of elegance for a pocket knife!Making up for yesterday with some wood.
I have knives I like better because of personal taste but man this one makes for a great pocket knife.
That knife is "cream of the crop" , but your lunch looks kind of "bottom of the barrel."
But we'd have been deprived of a heck of a story!
If only the Trojans had possessed an E. Bruckmann and an Ashley's Choice Lambsfoot they could have escaped the deception of the Greeks!
It's still there.
Astounding photo showing off the charms of a couple of vintage knives, Harry!
Couple of very cool Catts, JJ!
Thanks, Dean. That sums up my reaction every time I look at it.Gary, your cinnamon stag bone RR with Damascus blades canoe is stunning!
Looks great with the grass starting to poke out of the snow!
Delightful duo, Jon! But your words had me grinning at an image of you coming at some situation with a spearpoint protruding from each fist...
Yeah, I definitely like the EO (but there are many who just as definitely think it spoils the pattern.)No, ice sculptor I’m not. The snow on the deck had been keeping me from posing my daily totes on Dead Guy’s Table, but this time I risked getting snow inside of my LL Bean moccasins. That’s when I saw that lump of ice on the railing. I think it was formed, partially melted/carved, re-formed, repeatedly by melt water coming off the eaves.
@paulhilborn fixed that jack up nicely. I think that shape calls for an EO notch.
Jack, I'm a Damascus neophyte, so really have nothing to which I can compare my RR. It's certainly far better than a couple of knives I have with "damascus-etched" blades!...
Very nice Gary, how do you find that RR Damascus?
Hope everyone has had a reasonable, and that you all have a great weekend ahead Carrying my Hartshead Barlow again today, and an Old Friend
Handsome half whittler, Will!CASE again, Half-Whittler, two spring version.
That's certainly part of its charm!It doesn't take up much room.
Ain't that the truth! I convinced my wife that, at least for this first year of Medicare for her, we should both go with the Medicare Advantage plan I've been using for several years, since I'm familiar with it and can help her out if questions come up....
Thank you GT! Luckily I turned 65 first and was able to figure it out so I could advise her. As a military retiree Medicare works with the DOD Tricare program to complete your coverage so I didn't have to read the dozens of supplemental insurance booklets that arrived in the mail by magic. That would have been a nightmare. BB
Old, but with plenty of work left in those blades!An old friend for Friday.
That one would HAVE to be your favorite.
Striking covers on that duo, John!
Really attractive knife!
I always say: Come to The Porch for the knives, stay for the philosophy and life coaching!Good morning! Life is directed by the decisions we make. Often, those decisions, and the actions they dictate can seem overwhelming. Career decisions, construction and repair projects, getting financially squared away, diet and fitness, etc, can look like a giant mess of “where do I start?”.
Unless we decide where and when to start, nothing will get done. For me, the best course is to start small and easy. Therefore, I took the easy decision first today by deciding to carry the knives that were already in my blue jeans~ this Case whittler and Vic Fisherman.
That wasn’t so hard.

I learn something new almost every day! I must have been thinking of a pony keg of Barlows....
Thank you, Gary. I only have 59 Barlows; I think the standard Barlow Barrel can hold 75.
The black and silver make that a very dignified Barlow, Dean!
Splendid BF Viper, Alan!
Ravishing red bone, Tim! RR half whittler?Everyone have a great weekend.
I haven't baled hay for over 50 years, but I'm sure glad that back when I did, we weren't trying to lug around "bales" THAT size!! At the end of a day, 50-pounders had usually done me in.I’ll have to work tomorrow, but TGIF! Been a busy week and I’m ready for a little break!
Ebony Lamb again today.
You all seemed to like the load of hay going out the other day, so I grabbed another picture earlier this morning. Sent 18 squares of that “high octane” alfalfa with a guy for his horses.
Not really oldies, but certainly goodies, Steve (especially the ebony Churchill)!Oregon Trapper and a Churchill
