That was worth setting a trap for.Two for Thursday. The Giant Mouse GMF1-F landed today. Ima think I'll like this knife! Very similar to my Nessmi, but can be very easily carried in my pocket. Lovely sheath too.
Paired up with an Ohta Wharncliffe trapper.

Sensational knife, Gus!
Congrats on the handsome sheath and the solid Böker, Jeff! Kudos to John for his ongoing magnanimity!Got an envelope via US Mail yesterday from JohnDF. I’m now a proud owner of one of his slips. Really, pocket sheath, or pocket holster may be more accurate. And he didn’t send it empty!
This Boker Jack was in it...Sweet, sweet knife. The sound it makes snapping open from half stop, and closing from half stop is pure music.

Being trapper Tuesday, the big Case is riding snug in the sheath. The Boker will get the dirty work because as John said, “they made them good back then.”
Thank you, JohnDF!
I switched to this SW beauty.
Couple of captivating stockman examples, Jeff!...
Today I switched back to my large Boker stockman in stag and 440C. Dang, this is a nice knife!
Relatively recent knives, but they both look vintage, Jon!
I always enjoy seeing your special gunstock, John!Going with an old favorite today, I'll just be staying home today and it will be keeping me company.
Handsome horned horse on the Barlow, and a sweet swell-center whittler, Rachel!...
I'm toting this pair today.
Congrats on the true blue Navy knife, ED!...
Sine I was hurting so bad yesterday, I called my mailman and asked if he'd deliver my mail to the house instead of the mail boxes up the road since I wasn't doing too good. He did (the advantage of living in a small town) and this Case Single Blade Sowbelly with a Navy theme was in the mail so, it too is going to the Wagon Wheel Cafe. Granted the etch is a bit much but it'll wear off with use. The Navy Blue bone covers are perfect. Hurried picture. I'll get more and better pictures later.

You're well-equipped with that dandy duo, Mike!These two for Tuesday.
JJ, the CJ Barlow is a Captivating Jack!
"Douk-Douk" is a repetitive name, but you have a lot of Douk-Douk variety in that trio, Jim!And ya know Douk-Douks are a little ugly.
I blame the mirror ...
Thanks, Dean.Gorgeous photos all around, Gary. I especially the matching photos of your two SAKs.
That's a superb friction folder, José! How big is it? Is that a quail on the blade?
Ravishing red bone on your Case stockman, Steve!
Thanks, John.Very nice... Case seem to do a good Sowbelly.
Propitious, pulchritudinous pearl knives, Gus & Jack!That's an interesting knife
That's a beauty, and inspiring...
Hope everyone is having a good week, the Guardians thread reached 50,000 posts yesterday, so it seemed appropriate to carry my 2017 Guardians SFO, and I'm adding this Abram Brooksbank Please enter the giveaway linked to in my sig line
Thanks, Jeff.Beautiful gift and great remembrance of Ron!
I'm not really much of a Barlow fan, but a Böker Barlow like your beauty has always appealed to me for some reason, Bruce!All this Barlow talk around the 2021 BF Traditional Club Knife has me pining to carry one. Boker USA 492 for today. OH
Finally getting some rain here as I type, Jack; in fact, it's a rather torrential downpour that has just revealed that there's a leak in the roof over the back porch. (About a dozen drops falling just behind my left shoulder when the rain and the wind were both at their most intense.)Thanks Gary, all the rain helps keep it green here
Do you know, it's so long since I carried that knife, I can't even remember if I've ever sharpened it or not! I do have a vague recollection, but not a detailed one. Story of my life these days!
Admirable pair, Jer! How are you liking that Case cross-draw sheath?Greensleeves and Swamp Suzy for the farm this morning.
I agree about the grain on the walnut Whaler, David; very cool the way it curves in a different direction at the butt end than at the pivot end!
3 intriguing "international" knives with folded metal handles! I have all 3 models, and am surprised how the comfort of the handles varies among them. I think the Mercator is most comfortable in hand, followed by the Douk-Douk, with the Higonokami quite uncomfortable for anything but brief use.
3 superb gifts pictured there, Jeff!
Heavenly humpback, Mike!Happy Wednesday! Orange you all glad this week is half over?
Praiseworthy pair, Todd!
So simple, so handsome!
Impressive covers on your lambsfoot!Around the horn this afternoon ...
Distinguished double lambs, Jack!...
Out early in the morning, and thought I'd have a Double Lambsfoot Day
Your twin Bulldog Barlows are sensational, José!
Thanks Jeff. Yes it's a high flat grind, 5mm M390 with a PVD stonewash.That was worth setting a trap for.
Is that flat ground?
Thanks Jack. I'm happy with it.Like it Gary Nice-looking sheath too
Excellent knife and quality picture.
Cool picture, Jack.
Thank you, GT.I always enjoy seeing your special gunstock, John!
Wonderful old beauty, Jeff.
Thank you, Todd.Great knives John
I think you'll like it, Todd.I really like the Jack pattern, I’m going to definitely pick up one in black, and the red CV also
