Todd, it's hard enough to resist the allure of other people's knives, but when our own knives make us want to go buy other knives, we don't stand a chance!Thanks Gary, I really like it, very thin in the hand. I think it was partly to blame for yesterday’s mini copperlock purchase!
Glamour shot of a couple of gorgeous bone Cases, JJ!
Thanks for the additional info, Tony....
hey Gary—yes, that Behring Made Woodcraft is just the perfect size... big, but not unmanageable for carving. At 4 3/4”, the blade is phenomenally versatile, and the grind and tempering is outstanding. Those curls are the result of a fair amount of practice over the years, and an exquisite tool.
You're a good dad, Vince!No, Señor. But I did buy an stainless Opinel No. 8 with walnut handle for my daughter.
Thanks for talking turkey with us, Bruce! Did you have any luck when you were out earlier this week?Thanks guys! Urban birds (wild but too close to people) are like Jekyll-Hyde, very different personalities. Wild birds will be a gone ghost if they see a human 400 yards away. OH
Man, that is a classy classic!Messing around working on a few things in the garage with this one today:
Couple of show-stoppers there, Greg!
That Buck is very elegant (especially compared to your thumbs )!NSFW: ... Nekkid Thumbs
Too many difficult knives lately
Monday is recovery Monday
Smooth & Easy ... Thank you Buck 500
I like the carbon Rough Riders very much, Jack. They seem quite similar to Case CV steel to a non-expert like me; the patina actually reminds me more of the patina that develops on the Guardians lambsfoot knives. I agree with you that having some less "ornate" options from RR would be desirable.A pleasure Gary Interesting question, I reckon so
How are you getting on with using the carbon Rough Riders Gary? I've not seen that Folding Hunter over here, though RR's are a good deal more expensive. I'd hoped they'd do more carbon steel knives, but maybe I'm just not seeing them. The double nicks/pulls, together with all the other bells and whistles are a bit 'busy' for me, it'd be nice to see them do a nice, simple, carbon steel Sodbuster for example Good to see the Silver Bullet!
That Waynorth always makes me swoon, and the "Yachting knife" sounds quite posh!Hope everyone has a good week I'm starting mine off with a Waynorth Lambsfoot, and a small Ibberson Yachting Knife for Metal Monday
