    I love the xx18. Which surprised me, because I generally like a broad clip.
    The yellow one below is CV. I bought it at a hardware store to reward them for carrying Case. The burgundy one I bought on sale online to have the same thing in stainless. The open Camillus is the first expensive knife I bought for myself, and got into this picture by fooling me into picking it up when I was fishing for the yellow Case.

    The weather is changing here also, days longer and some strength in the sun, though still very cold in the morning. This is my bush hat and my Dri-Azabone. The hat has a broad rim which you need here in summer. The coat keeps out the wind and water, they are fantastic.

    The knife is an Eye Witness Bunny Knife.

    It is a wool hat that i saw and liked years ago, i use it when out in the bush or doing any sort of dirty work. It is beat up a bit, but still does it's job.

    Lisa and her husband Troy ride and train a lot of mustangs. They have been longtime (15-20 years) customers/friends of ours. Made em all their leggings and knives/sheaths, wool vests, belts, holsters, wildrags etc. They've since separated, still talk with Troy once in a while, lost track of Lisa:

    [​IMG]

    They both always carried a large knife in that small of the back local. Fact Troy designed my Sonoran Camp Knife model and has the very first. Troy in the white shirt:

    My friend Ben in Ark likes to hunt. He sells my knives in his gun store too. Kinda looks like an Akubra hat and he's got one of our wildrags on too:
