    Good choice on the Case brown bone sawcut CV Barlow, Gary! :thumbsup::thumbsup: It is a stellar example of Case quality.

    I can't imagine buying so many of the same knife (Pocket Pals); oh wait, I bought a bunch of Schrade 897UH stockman.:eek: Never mind!:)

    Your Alox Farmer is a great travel choice; I'm so glad you gave me one (thanks, again). :thumbsup:

    Another great shot, and I hope I'm not the only one that opened that video in another tab to play in the background. Quite enjoying it :)

    Humpback stockman and compact riding along today.

    Ha ha! Point taken but in some languages, Finnish and Russian plus others, articles don't exist so there is no 'a' or 'the' only knife :D

    But you are right, the proportions cannot be bettered, when closed quite a lot of the blade remains outside the frame so despite a strong spring you may pinch it open if you wish. Once opened out fully, it's straight as a die almost looking liked a fixed blade. Plus the blade seems every millimetre the same as the handle, which is admirable. I dislike those knives that have a foolish short blade and a mass of handle:thumbsdown: Unless of course like an Ettrick, it's meant to have that on purpose.

    Thanks, Will

    It is a pretty neat pattern. Kind of a strange stockman for sure with the spear main and straight line/angle with the spey.

    The beads are begleri beads, sort of a "fidget" item originating in Greece. They're played in the hand, manipulating them, and using flow to move them around the fingers. Four years since I quit smoking, but still need something to do with my hands :) And the hanky, I covered up a part of the logo. The company is aroundsquare (the begleri provider) :)

    Since I bought it new it just sort of clicked with me.

    I wonder where and when the pattern originated? Very classy

    I'll look up the beads and thanks for the info :cool::thumbsup:

    Edit: Super interesting video on begleri ...wow..I did not know. This would be so good for hand coordination in old age....especially for non dominant hand.
    There is no trick called the Humpback ;);)
    /thanks

    I really like the looks of those stockyard whittlers with the osage orange covers, and, judging from how that type of wood has aged on other knives, I'll like them even better as time goes by! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Good wood, and GREAT research, Jeff! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    The ebony covers are swell, Stuart, but the unusual blade shapes and combos are what makes my heart swell for this pair! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    Boffo brace of Barlows, Del, but the beautiful bottles from a bygone age are breath-taking! :cool::cool::)

    Congrats on the beguiling Böker Barlow! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I need to get serious about finding one of those; the bolster stamp really grabs me! ;)

    @Frailer and @Buzzbait , thanks for the very informative posts regarding Victorinox magnifiers! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Rousing pair of Remington folders, Tom! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    If I was required to say a few words, I'd definitely NOT carry that splendid pen, since it renders me speechless! :eek:;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Great Texas Jack, Paul! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Do you know if Case uses that SAME stout pen blade on any pattern with round bolsters?

    What a pair, JJ! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: It's hard to believe they're over 80 years old! :eek::eek:

    My non-Alox SAK for vacation this week and next is a Vic Recruit tuned up for whittling (thanks, Greg):

    OK entirely too much time on your hands if your hitching horsehair. We use to have a guy in prison hitch some key fobs for us we'd sell. Course he had lots of time on his hands. Very cool!

    The Pocket pal holds a special spot for me, it's the first Vic i bought with my own money.
    They were discontinued by the time I saw the poor thing hanging dusty on the hardware store rack and I decided to bring it home.

    Some fine carries and some great pictures for you this week :thumbsup:

    It's a great knife. :cool::thumbsup:

    My wife and i usually unwind with a couple of hours of sitting front of the TV in the evenings. That's when I would hitch or sew saddle parts.

    Just home from the last 26 hours in the hospital with my boy. He had a staph abcess in his butt. They had to do surgery and get it. Ended up being 2 spots. But he's out and we home and doing well. I had the foresight to grab his knife before we left to go.

    On a lighter note, my muscadines are ripening. But many of them are dropping before ripe or even close to ripe. Anyone know what causes that?

    Could possibly be a lack of potassium in the soil. If it is, can rectify it with applying sulphate of potash.
