    I think it has been more than 2 weeks since I posted anything other than some of the knives I carry each day – none of my usual posts thanking folks for their compliments and sharing their excitement over the knives they're carrying. I miss doing that, but somehow my "social distancing" has unintentionally carried over to BF lately. I think I'm about 60 or more pages behind, and I'm not going to even try to catch up. I will try to at least respond to posts from the past 2+ weeks that are directed specifically to me; apologies if I miss some of them.

    Thanks for your take on the Pioneer X scissors, Bill. :)
    How are you liking your titanium Compact?

    It's cool that you could give that Opinel a week-long tryout, Tom. :)

    Your kind words are always appreciated, Harvey. :)

    Thanks, Dean; it would probably be an EDC if I weren't committed to a red celidor Minichamp that I like even better. ;)

    Thanks, John and Jack. :) John, you'd have enjoyed the numeric excitement of @Will Power's "guess my license tag number" GAW: https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/guess-right-stockman-gaw.1559650/
    I was very fortunate to win. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, Harvey & Matt. :) Matt, I think the ram's horn, especially the crater has a positive effect on lots of people! ;)

    I appreciate the support, even in my absence, gents! :)
    Jack, your stag HHB and the orange Bull Nose were quite a pair! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dean and @Laurelbb. :) The RR Half-Hawk is 4" closed, with a relatively large pen blade.

    I'm grateful for your liking my lambsfoot pic, Jack and Stuart. :)
    Terrific trio you're toting in these trying times, Jack! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, José! :) I hope you and your country are handling this pandemic well.

    Thanks for the encouragement regarding both my avocation and my vocation, Dean! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    More catch-up quotes tomorrow. ;)

    I'll conclude with more of my carries for this week.
    Watchpocket knife this week is a Rough Rider pen knife with copper bolsters and grooved horn covers:

    Big knife this week is a white smooth bone RR marlin spike:

    Miscellaneous knife this week is a Sarge BSA barlow:

    Thank you for your replies, Gary. I don't know if I have mentioned previously the beauty of your RR pen knife with grooved horn covers. It really is distinctive. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jeff! :) I got that particular Bullnose in a group of knives I bought several years back. The Black Micarta does a touch of class to a working knife! :thumbsup: Above and beyond caution my friend! It seems to be the new norm! :)

    Another day of sitting around, so we moved it outside. Sitting on the front wall next to the garden waste bin (for pick up soon), a couple of buddies socially distanced and socially adjusted, a cigar and a reclusive (but freshly combed out) dog. Nice to be outside.

    Relaxing in the sun are a Case 62032 medium Texas jack (thanks @Half/Stop) and a Primble 4995 double end jack. They may stay n my pocket another day or two. We're not in a hurry any time soon.
