I'm sure it was fine back when it was a sheepsfoot.That’s the “Finger Tip Slicer Spey”.
John, either that’s an optical illusion, or the kick on your spey blade is dangerously high.
Robust red pair, José!
Continued success with the DIY kits and with the BF knives!He loved the toothpick, I think we may do the canoe in the future!
Thanks Gary! I am enjoying it, and I am enjoying the process of tracking them all down. There was a 2012 on fleabay, but it went for over $450 lol. Too rich for my blood.
Striking pair, Jack! There's an old song about diamonds being a girl's best friend, but that scratted handle on the Ancient TC shows that diamonds can be friendly to folks of ANY gender!
When (if??) the pandemic ends, you should have an "Opening the Trunk" cookout, John!That would be nice.
I have a couple of knives locked away in a keep-sake trunk in the shed. I haven't seen them for probably 35 years. Some day I'll brave the spiders and go dig them out.
Thanks for the good word, Gus. I keep telling myself that I should never carry the Forest-Master again for fear of losing such a special-to-me knife, and I even bought an old Imperial Kamp King as a substitute carry, but when the Forest-Master appears on my rotation schedule once every 24 weeks, I gladly carry it for a week. In fact, I've thought about making it one of my literal EDCs and carrying it 365 days per year for however many years I have left.
That's a suave and stylish pearl stockman, Jim, and a fine photo of knife on photo!This MOP Stockman waiting on the curb @ Stockmans Headquarters for Thursday carry ... waiting

You seem to be posting that ravishing stag Churchill a lot recently, and I can certainly see why!!
Captivating vintage cattle knife and very handsome pocket slip! Horn handle on the Shapleigh??
3 blade Thursday carry. I am quite liking this knife
Looks like a reliable pair, Jeff, and I always enjoy it when you include some background info on the knives you post!View attachment 1546421 View attachment 1546424 The Klein knife was a hard used and abused hawkbill, which I purchased for a project. It’s an extremely robust knife, with a strong spring that makes me grateful for the half stop.
Based on the construction and materials, I think it was made by Camillus for MKlein&Sons. It’s identical to a Camillus #1 hawkbill pruner. And even though it’s brown instead of black, the scale material and number of pins means it is roughly the same age as the TL-29.
I am not sure what that material is~ it is harder than the smooth scales they used later. You can see the texture... View attachment 1546419
I definitely feel fortunate to still have my first knife, Jack.Nice that you still have that one Gary
Thinking of getting one of these
I've had these two with me today
Sensational bone on that Camillus, Steve!Camillus #12 and a Buck 110 again today
Thanks, Dean.I love seeing that Vic Cadet II, Gary.
Ravishing red pair, Dean! And quite a texture contrast between the gleaming smooth synthetic Vic and the ultra-scooped jigging on the bone Case.
Thanks, Jack. That cigar pattern looks really good with the propeller shield doesn’t it? The symmetry pulls it all together.Those two are both stunning JJ, and perfectly paired
They go together well Joshua, gorgeous
Handsome pair of knives Taylor
Wishing everyone a peaceful and relaxing Sunday
This is a sweet knife. Still tight and I like that the blades have wear so I don't care about using it. Of course their's no heavy lifting any more just some light to moderate work.That's a fine old Barehead Jack. I still consider them the Platonic Ideal of Pocket Knives.
I'm sure it was fine back when it was a sheepsfoot.
I plan to file the kick and round the profile a bit more.
I didn't do the original re-profiling, but had to buy the elusive double spey Stockman.
