    This just in off the exchange, a few licks with stone and stick, and into the pocket it went. Thanks again, Colin!

    I was just thinking... On a knife forum, should it be "Walk 'n Talk" like a pirate day?

    My most treasured knife. A clamshell stag teardrop that John Lloyd made for me. It's one of a pair. IMG_1041-852x823.JPG

    Thanks Stuart! The truth is between the heat, the humidity, the riding mower, the push mower, the gas trimmer and the gas blower I’m beat my friend! I’m glad I didn’t need either one of my knives because I don’t think I could have opened it! :eek: :D

    That’s a beauty Jeff! I bet you don’t even know it’s in your pocket! :thumbsup: :D

    This one rides in my left front pocket in the slip sheath it came with, nice juniper scales with lots of character as well as the peppery smell ;)

    I've been out of the loop for a bit here on the Porch, but you can bet that I've still had a (traditional) knife in my pocket every day! :D Been carrying this one a lot lately.

    Been pretty sick lately and have neglected this thread, but the Texas jack was in my pocket when I got sick and I just never thought to pick something else.
    It's getting a lot more patina now with all the extra fruit I've eaten'.

    That's a nicely varied trio, Rachel! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I like the Casper the Friendly Ghost patina on the #29, and that little MOP is the Catt's meow!

    You're welcome, Nick. :) Some claim that you can't stop with just one Case peanut. ;)

    That sounds like a more than satisfactory life summary, Harvey! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    I'm totally onboard with your assessment of the Joker. :)
    Splendid Joseph Rodgers shadow lambsfoot!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the additional info about your melon tester. :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I appreciate your comments, JJ. :)

    Appealing pair, JJ; I really like the way GEC's Osage Orange ages! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Jack. :)
    That swell-end EO spear/pen with bail is such a classic IMHO! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Those two seem to share a lot of knife DNA, Steve! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I'd be interested in reading a compare/contrast of those two sometime. ;)

    Welcome back, Tom! :) Good to see a fixed blade and scout on the rocks again! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Harvey, I'm always dumbstruck by the detail in your photos! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup: They always show things that I've never seen with my (somewhat myopic) naked eyes!

    IMHO, that Cattaraugus Barlow with the tiny script on the bolster is such an iconic knife, Gev! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: (And I was talking to some statistics students on Tuesday about how inflection points and standard deviations are related for Normal distributions! :eek::p)

    Thanks, Dean. :) I certainly am partial to the Case CV chestnut jigged bone series, but they're not as easy to find at dealers these days as they used to be.

    That's a capital couple of knives, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup: (Will you be carrying a Vendetta, or carrying OUT a Vendetta??)

    That swoopy, sweeping clip on the Case lockback is something else, Stuart!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    You've sold me, Jack; versatility is the name of the game. ;):thumbsup:

    That's a pair one certainly doesn't see every day! Intriguing knives, Jer! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Jake on the job!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I liked looking through the Rogue's Galleries you put together, Stuart! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats, Paul; that spey blade is special! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the tang stamp info, JJ. So the 6347 sometimes has a different blade combo than the clip/sheep/spey (which is the only blade trio I've seen on that pattern in my brief "knife life")?
    Thanks for the Imperial BSA compliment. That's one of the few knives I have that I don't think I've ever used. Contrast it to this white Imperial BSA that @r8shell gave me recently that I've been using in the kitchen quite often:
