A very grand knife, Jack.
Very nice single-blade Gunstock.
Very nice... I really like single blade Sheepsfoot Barlows, so very handy.
I'm glad somebody from here on the Porch was able to grab that #66 Jack, it's absolutely amazing.
A very grand knife, Jack.
I agree! Last year she was still a bit young to really understand what was going on (still all smiles though). This year she was over the moon!Not much better than the look on a little one’s face at their birthday party! Congratulations.
For a second there I thought that said"Front Toward Enemy". Nice knife even if it's not on a claymore!
Have a safe and peaceful Sunday porch friends!
A pair with flair and an incredibly dapper trapper, Gary!Out and about today. Have a good one!
Chamblin WT along for the ride.
Fantastic knife and fascinating, informative post, LT!
"Hope for the best" is one of my most frequent tactics , but I may have to invest some time into learning how my point&shoot camera actually works.In my case, the trick is to use your work-issued iPhone, forget your reading glasses in the car, squint, and hope for the best.
Your stag gunstock is nuts, Dwight!
Starting the week with the blues, Dean, but in a very good way!
That 78 is SUCH an attractive jack, JJ, especially with the checkered covers!
Gotta be a pair of finalists in the Golden Bone contest, Steve!Camillus and a Schrade Cutco
Glad you're liking it! I'm afraid I'll be no help with sheath recommendations; most of the slips I have are serendipitous finds when I didn't even know I was looking!Thanks, Gary! I made an offer a little under asking, and was able to close the deal. And yes, I do like it very much. I may try to carry this exclusively for a while, and see how it suits me. If you (or anyone else) have a recommendation for a pocket slip or belt sheath that fits it, please let me know! —Tony
I've been admiring the view I see in some of your shots of knives on what looks like the railing of a deck, but I guess every "reward" has associated "risks", too! Glad you literally "came out of it" OK, but sorry you had to experience the shock.Well, took another polar plunge today, only it wasn’t intentional this time. Was breaking up some ice around the dock, lost my balance, fell off the dock and went right through the ice! Pretty deep water but I was able to get ahold of the dock and climb out. Had my 86 tortoise in my pocket but I’m happy to report after a flush with WD40 and a few drops of fresh oil in the joint it’s all good! Overall, I’d say I was pretty lucky!

That's a particularly pointy, and pretty, Puma pen knife, Gus!
Great photo (especially for just "playing around" )!Playing around with tabletop photo stuff this evening, tried for a "beauty" shot (kinda) of the knives for the coming week (minus the key ring Cadet). Some of the other knives I have are beginning to feel neglected.
Meaningful pair, Jack; that ruler knife is a very nice memento of Stan Shaw....
Starting off the week (and month) with my Hartshead Barlow and a Stan Shaw Ruler Knife, the last knife I had from him
Beautiful Bulldog Barlow, José!
I have no experience with the Eureka jack pattern, and the handle shape looks "odd" to me, but the folks who have them sure seem to like them! Great photo of a knife I wish I knew more about.
Hey there GT, looks like you've been busy with the replies...had to page down quite aways to find mine. Anyway, hope all's well with you.
My usual pandemic response has become, "So far, so good!" Thanks for asking, Bill. Got my first vaccination on Friday, and that made me feel more hopeful than I'd have predicted!
My daughter will turn 33 on her next birthday, but I still fondly remember the days of taking her grocery shopping with me on Saturdays and her pulling out her toy "checkout line" and imitating the grocery store cashiers, or walking around the house taking orders on her little pad after a visit to a restaurant, or even "playing Barbies" with her on too many Sunday afternoons to count!My daughter turned 3 today, and because she rarely passes up an opportunity to remind people that she loves red I thought I'd carry the only red knife I currently own.
Thanks for setting me straight, Tim. I'm surprised I couldn't ID yours when I carried a RR amber bone version of the same pattern all of last week!Thank you. It's a three blade whittler with wedge or split-back
That old Peanut is a champ, Jeff; perfect bone handles!
Handsome pair of knives, Ross! The Presidential is probably my favorite Northwoods pattern (just based on photos ).Happy Monday!
That Stan Shaw stag sleeveboard shadow pattern pen is stupendous, Charlie!
Glad you're liking it! I'm afraid I'll be no help with sheath recommendations; most of the slips I have are serendipitous finds when I didn't even know I was looking!
