I'm afraid I've become quite boring. I like my BladeForums Viper so much that I carry it nearly every day, at home. Usually a multi-blade when I go out, but around the house this little Viper does everything very well.

Iโ€™m at scout camp with my boy again this weekend.

We were checking out the teepee, which got refurbed this last year. I was telling him how I used to camp here as a Cub Scout, and at the end of camp weโ€™d wait by the teepee for our parents to come claim us.

I said that they must have changed it up since then because it used to sit on a grassy hill. I remember that some boys planted pine saplings up there one summer as a service project. Then I thought about it for a minute and realized Iโ€™m getting old. :eek:

Iโ€™ve been carrying around this Case trapper that I canโ€™t seem to kick out of my pocket.

In other news my daughter delivered my 7th grandchild, a healthy boy and I'm feeling blessed and on top of the world today. :)
Big congratulations! Sounds like a full house for Hollidays!!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘
I think youโ€™ll like that Bullnose. Unless you already have one, then you already know!
Very first one, and I really do like it!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
Should we get some of the boys together and bust you out of the vampireโ€™s lair?
๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘
Thanks, Jeff!! I'll probably eat lots of garlic next round, that aught to keep them back some!
Stan Shaw made me up this Stockman from old parts, and put horn covers on, instead of wood.

You are doing a storming job with those multi-quotes Dennis :) Hope you're doing OK there, I like your new Sodbuster, goes great with the Lamb :cool: :thumbsup:
Thank you kindly, Jack! I reall like carrying the two, great flexibility between just two blades!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘
so I'm struggling adjusting to retirement. :eek:
You'll get your groove Gary!! I was afraid me and my wife would be tripping over each other, but we do great together, and enjoy camping and sightseeing whenever we can.
Congratulations on being retired!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘
First-rate couple of wood-handled knives, Dennis! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

We are having a great time.
That's an all around perfect foto! Knives + guitars!๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ‘ I had an electric Ovation many years ago, a Viper, a great guitar, but I sold it before going to Germany. Just like knives, you regret getting rid of them later down the road!

Sounds like a great time for you guys! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘
I tried to go summer-practical today, but the main blade is impracticably short. It's a good thing it's all stainless and plastic, because I made a bit of a mess of it with some donut frosting.

Looks like it held up fine, Jer! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘ I didn't know Buck made such an animal. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Thank you, Jack. You had a lot of information and good looking knives in your post. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Thanks Dean :) :thumbsup:
My interest was peaked when I saw Jack Black Jack Black 's cool posting on the IXL-Schrade, so I dug out mine, adding an early Camillus BSA Scout. :)
A fantastic pairing JJ, and very appropriate, considering Camillus made the parts for the big Lockback :) :thumbsup:

Yup, It'll live. The Swissbuck was made by Wenger, and didn't last long. I may not have been the only person wondering who would buy a SAK if they wanted a Buck, and who would buy a Buck if they wanted a SAK. It's my smallest knife with a saw (about 3.25" closed).
