Hope you're fully recovered today Rachel, Happy Flag Day! :)
Thanks, Jack. 🇺🇸🇵🇷🇬🇧🇱🇷🇦🇺🇮🇲
I'm a little bit sore from some of the yardwork I did over the weekend, but expect to recover quickly.
Thanks! I sure think so …

Fantastic!
Nice trio of knives, Rachel! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
I agree with your claim about time of day. In my golden years, I seem to wake up at 4-4:30am no matter when I go to bed, so staying up past 9pm is unusual for me any more. :(
I find that as I get older, I'm more of an early riser. It's certainly nice this time of year, when it's 80 degrees by 8 am. If I don't get a walk in first thing in the morning, I'm just not going to do it.

Thanks Gary, definitely enjoying them. They are a huge hit with the three year old and should come in handy when we go camping!

Nice knife! :thumbsup::cool::cool:
Do you have any "critters" in your water tank? When I was a kid on the dairy farm, seems like in the summer we almost always had a turtle or two and a couple of bullheads in the cow tank; the cows didn't seem to mind. (Sometimes had a watermelon cooling in the tank, too.)

Thank you. No critters yet. This is a new trough, so nothing has found its way in yet. Fish and frogs are pretty common in a lot of our troughs. I’ve never had a turtle, but that would be cool. Usually the only thing we have cooling in the troughs are dogs on hot days.

Like Snake after his basketball game. ;)

Wonderful photo, Jack. 🤠:thumbsup:
Cooking coffee outdoors is the best relaxer in the world.
LOL! :D Thanks buddy, it's definitely a ritual I enjoy, takes me back to when I used to do it as a kid :) :thumbsup:
Happy to pocket my TC again today...
Fabulous Barlow :) :thumbsup:

I know the feeling Rachel, hope you do :) I've also found I get up earlier as I get older - I remember once bumping into my granddad when I was on my way home from a night out, and he was going for his morning paper! :D Excellent pair :) :thumbsup:
Got to agree with JohnDF JohnDF Todd, perfect pairing :thumbsup:

Yes indeed, I had a former brother-in-law working for Rodgers-Wostenholm at the time, and even he didn't know where the blades came from (though he did know they came from the USA). The project was very hush-hush though, and none of the knives were ever sold in England. The Stockman was simply Wostenholm's existing pattern (see below), and the large Stockman was also made in Sheffield, but the large Lockback, and some of the others, were merely assembled and finished there :thumbsup:

Interesting stuff, I wonder if there was a tariff loophole? :) Those stockman knives look super cool! :cool: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
