    :cool::thumbsup: Some of my favorite old knives have a broken blade.
    I've found a few that are otherwise in perfect shape. My theory is that after breaking a blade, the owner got mad and threw the knife back in a drawer, thus saving the other blades from the dreaded grinder. But your little Boker looks like the owner knew what he was doing, sharpening-wise, so the breakage happened much later by a careless grandchild.
    Thanks! I was only a Girl Scout for one day, I quit after getting my knife! :p Gone missing for years until a surprise gift from @Jsega51 of a replacement. :D

    A few early leaves are turning. It is easily 25 degrees F cooler in the mornings than it was a month ago.[​IMG]

    Our electric can opener looks like it’s reached the expiration date of it’s planned useful lifespan, so I’ve been doing the same. And you know what? I’m getting used to it. Just a simple little manual skill that we’ve been convinced is beneath us. The GSA knife is really close to Seafoam Green, an American auto company color in the fifties. I had always liked it, especially for a guitar.

    I can relate, but don’t remember why!

    I just got this #233 jack. I like this era of Schrade jugged delrin.
    It had never been sharpened after leaving the factory~ until I got it.
    I thought it deserved to ride with a trapper from the same era, even though this one is a parts knife I cobbled together from two~ one with a full blade but broken spring, and one with a broken blade,

    I dug some seedlings at my sister’s place in Michigan last year~ beech, red oak and sassafras. The sassafras were the only ones that didn’t survive, dangit.
    Very classy jack, btw.

    Does this indicate that you will not be able to have your very own sassafras tea ???

    A2550AF6-58AA-4FCD-ABF1-5840CC60246F.jpeg Forgot the Wenger that’s on my belt.
    I may need it at the tree farm today. It’s nice to have a saw handy, but with my chainsaw, not likely to be needed.

    But what does need have to do with it?

    Carrying an odd pair today. Looking through my collection last night my eyes fell on two I couldn't decide over, so they both went in my pocket this morning...[​IMG] [​IMG]
