Otter Anker Messer today. I think these represent good value with good QC for a readily available knife

Wow, gorgeous photo! You really got the colors to pop, the contrasts, dark to the brass, and to the leather color... Just gorgeous lighting and composition!

Nice knife too. I really should get one while I can. Keep seeing them and saying maybe someday...

Exquisite painted horn, Jack. :cool::thumbsup:

Today for Black Friday... Black Alox Cadet and Charlie Lamb.

Thank you John, what a great Black Friday pairing :cool: :) :thumbsup:

Just got this Fontinelle Pataud 5 Coqs (5 Roosters) off the Exchange. At 4.44" it's a good sized knife. The F&F and mechanics are just perfect.
Makes a great picnic knife!

Nice pick-up Gary :) :thumbsup:

Sounds good, Jack. And I love book recommendations, keep’em coming!

From the same publisher, I very much enjoyed this one, which contains some fascinating history :thumbsup:

I love that blade profile, great lines :cool: :thumbsup:

That's hilarious, Jack! There was quite a wealth of non-fiction Western characters helping create a vast amount of great Western fiction books!:eek::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:


Your horn covered Lamb is quite a startling beauty, while your classic Sheffield spear looks as tasty as that bread!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

He was certainly a funny character JJ :rolleyes: Thank you for the kind words my friend :) :thumbsup:

Going with these two slicers today; a kind of "surf and turf" combo. :)

Two beautiful knives I could stare at all day :cool: :) :thumbsup:

Yes and no, Jack. It's a knife that is most certainly inspired by Kephart's design but in a considerably scaled down version. I have a couple more of these in different size (one larger and one mid sized) in the works from the same maker. It is his take on the Kephart design - with some of his personal design changes.

Here is the little Auk3 beside the Becker Kephart.

Personally, I like the jigging that I see Case do a bit better than what GEC produces and far better than what Queen/S&M produced in recent decades. I agree with you in that I usually do not like Case's dyes but every once in awhile, I find a gem.

Some of the nicest jigging that I own is on this Lambsfoot that @glennbad did up for me - I can't recall where he sourced the bone but I like that there are no smooth spots.

Thanks for the comparison pic Dylan, two useful knives there for sure :) I love that green bone on your Case Copperhead, and it's great to see your @glennbad -modded Lamb again :cool: :thumbsup:
