Love the washboard scales on your Böker Barlow - they look good on that pattern. I have those same handles on a Whittler and really appreciate the craftsmanship.
Happy Thursday Everybody.
Thanks Bruce! I think I’ve seen that whittler before, but wouldn’t mind seeing it again...hint hint!
A fine combination for Wooden Wednesday JJ
The laws are a bit tighter still here John, but it's rare I carry a locking folder these days, I generally prefer slipjoints, and add a FB when I'm hiking. A pal of mine has been carrying a cheap lock-knife recently, and I pointed out how hopeless the lock was to him today! Thanks buddyDepends on where you go...
Definitely no locking knives at work, or any school campuses.
Federal buildings also don't allow locking knives.
It's just easier to carry non-locking knives all the time, unless I'm sitting at home or heading to the mountains. I've found I just don't need a locking knife in my day-to-day life, despite what the Mall Ninjas would have you believe.
The patina is coming along nicely...
Fab-looking pair GaryTwo for hump day.
Very generous CongratulationsI carried this Boker Barlow today. Had a 35 HJ along as well but the Barlow was the star of the show for me as it was a gift, along with an equally beautiful and finely crafted knife slip, both courtesy of John DF. They arrived in the mail yesterday and I loving 'em both. Very kind and thoughtful of you John, I don't even know how to express how grateful I am
to be the recipient of such nice gifts.
On a side note I recently had gotten a Boker Club knife and had Boker Barlows on my radar as my next acquisition so this gift was perfect for me.

Sorry for being so vague Gary I think you are right in your deduction though Thanks palThanks, John & Steve & Jack. I actually posted 3 "admirable" knives with sheepsfoot blades that day (Vic Florist, Cannon anchor knife, and Italian agricultural knife), so I'm not exactly sure which one you had in mind, but I think maybe at least 2 of you were referring to the Italian CEM. If I had owned it a little longer in 2020, I'm quite sure I'd have named it my 2020 Knife of the Year!
Couple of faithful friends for you!
Another cool pairing John
Ace photo RachelIt's a hippocamp, a fancy name for sea-horse (the merhorse kind). They're the ones what pull Poseidon's chariot.
I think my next project might feature a seahorse, but the other type. They don't swim well enough to pull anything.
