    I thought you might bring that one on your vacation. I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)
    Thank you!

    Yesterday's lunch:
    Today it's helping with some small projects around the house.

    I’m guessing a darker dye job of Chestnut Bone, Whiskey Bone wasn’t offered 20 years ago. OH
    Ps Had to find the picture, but this is a 1999 Chestnut Bone Case Canoe with CV blades. Very similar to the color shown in the 1998 6318 MED Stockman.

    I have had this one with me this weekend. We did some work indoors and out.


    I haven't really carried this all that much since I got it back from Buck. And now I think I know why...

    ... cause I'm an idiot! This is a sweet knife! Great blade combination, relatively slim in the pocket (although slightly longer than my normal carry), and worry free in the heat and humidity and potential exposure to water! Also sharpens up quite nicely.

    The knives that you are choosing to tote are absolutely excellent examples of classic slipjoint cutlery and are paired in such complimentary fashion as to stage a scene. In addition, the elders are in tremendously fine condition! Thanks for sharing, JJ.

    Boy, that's nice, Alan.

    Handsome rig, Gary.


    Thanks, Gev.

    Your old pal looks new to me, Steve. Tremendous stuff.

    That looks like a very handy, as well as handsome, knife.

    Been there, felt that way, too. Some spirit in the steel and bone.

    I'll say it again, Jeff. You made those into conversation pieces, as well as useful cutlery. Good stuff.

    The scrimshaw Schrade is just ducky. It quacks me up.

    There you go, again, Steve, A beautiful blast from the past.

    I don't know if I'd call that caramel, Dean, but it sure is sweet (and radiant).

    Well done sir.

    Thanks, GT. Your Cognet L'Ecureuil is sleek and simple - all that it needs to be. I'm glad that you had a chance to get away for a bit.

    My carry today and some bonus pictures.
    This is my new friend :) he “she”comes by 2 or 3 times a day although I’m sure he stops by more when I’m not home lol. Today he flew right up to me and Hovered in front of my face then landed on my jasmine plants and just chilled with me for a few minutes .
    I’m not sure what he “she”likes more my Jasmine plants or me lol . But he’s”she’s” a cool little guy”girl “ :D It might be time to buy a feeder for her so he can get a full meal.

    Yes it's a fine useful carry. The Elk slabs are grippy in the heat or wet and don't get affected by it either, blades and liners too. It takes a really keen edge and stays that way a long time, one of my favourite Forum Knives and a real bargain:cool:

    Thanks, Will

    Thanks, Dean. :)

    Glad to read your son's surgery was successful. I'll pray that the recovery be fast and as pain-free as possible. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Nice! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: I like 2-bladed toothpicks, especially the bigger models.

    Unusual stockman, Jeff! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for expressing such friendly thoughts, Jeff! :)

    Thanks for the info, John; I hope you have a fantastic year! :):thumbsup::thumbsup: When I was a lad, I'd have felt severely cheated if school started up again before August was even half over! :eek::rolleyes:

    Thanks for revealing your professional secrets, Dave! ;):thumbsup::cool:

    Congrats on the unique find, Vince! :cool::cool::thumbsup: I like that combined spear/opener blade. Is that an ink pen on the other end? When I was a lad, our phone "number" had the format shown on your knife (2 letters for the "exchange" followed by 5 digits in a 1,4 grouping - ours started with OS for OSBORNE).

    Thanks for your encouraging words, Mike. :) I'm not doing nearly as well at keeping up on The Porch as I used to; I think it's getting bigger and busier, more than this old man can handle! :eek::rolleyes:

    Lance, I'm not a fixed blade guy, but I sure like that nubby handle texture! :thumbsup::cool::cool: Is it true that guitar picks are made of celluloid? Did you ever hear of them "outgassing"?

    Thanks for the supportive comments, JJ. :) Vacation is very enjoyable, and although my back doesn't let me kayak anymore, I've walked over 51 miles in our first 9 day here, so I'm getting lots of exercise. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Aged Osage orange and blades with patina sure look great together! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, Harvey. :)

    What a pair! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: That sowbelly is really a showpiece!

    Classic canoe with the canoe blade etch! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That's a memorable knife, Alan! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Steve. :)

    Thanks for the thorough comparison of the two Barlows; superb job!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Same to you, John; nice pic! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: Your "knife-on-a-4x4" shots sometimes remind me of when I used to go to the horse races at Churchill Downs on Derby Day, and at the start of each of the dozen races, the track announcer would say, "They're at the post ... annnd they're off!!!" :D:thumbsup::cool:

    Lovely stockman, Stuart! :thumbsup::cool::cool: (And more word associations for me: when I saw that Queen, the old potato chips commercial went off in my head, "Ruffles have ridges." :confused::rolleyes:)

    Sensational stag, Harvey, and the bolsters are just icing on the cake! ;):cool::cool:

    Beautiful Buck bonanza! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    That CSC Cannitler is a gem, Mike! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: (Why don't they spell it "canittler", with one "n" as in "canoe" and 2 "t"s as in "whittler"??? Why do I worry about this kind of stuff??? :rolleyes:)

    Looking good, Chris; they cleaned up nicely! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dean, she sure does! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    The shield on that teardrop is very attractive, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Stunning toothpick, Nick! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    My Quotidian Quartet that I typically post each Sunday came along on vacation with me, of course. Instead of my usual group shot, here are individual pics of my 4 literal EDCs taken on vacation trips this year or earlier.

    What's the little silver lockback? I have an old Kershaw somewhere that looks like that if I remember. It had some super thick Tiger Eye stone handles glued on when I got it, but one broke somewhere along the line, so I removed them.

    Thanks, Gary. I'd probably call it a pen rather than a spear, but pretty much the same shape. Yes, it's an ink pen. (Out of ink! Should I return it? ;) )
    My grandmother's number was TU[lip] 2-8284. [Decades ago, but I still remember.]

    Thank you, Stuart; I agree that I don't think of caramel when I look at it. :)

    Thanks, Gary. The QQ look good no matter where you carry them. :thumbsup:

    Yes, Gary, the Boker shadow is so unusual that I can't find out anything about it! :confused:

    Today I carried 3 that were gifted to last week by my brother. The top one is from Providence Cutlery, the middle one is a Half Congress, I think by Sabre Japan, and the bottom one is a Western. All need light cleaning but that didn’t keep them from pocket time.

    . Gary, the knife is a Buck 692 Vanguard. As far as your question regarding guitar picks goes, you’re going to have to find someone more knowledgeable than me (That shouldn’t be too difficult). :confused:

    Thank you. I agree with you completely on this point, but I even Googled it to see how to spell it, and everywhere it was mentioned, that was the way. Let us rebel and call it a Canittler going forward :)
