    Here is to our intrepid explorer @Jack Black for venturing out. And yes, he was well armed @JohnDF . I always wondered what Jack would carry during Armageddon! Happy Birthday Jack!

    I have been staying on the farm trying to get as much done as possible during my exile.

    Today, I am totin the infamous GEC 47 Viper made back in the day when GEC still put a shield on Stag. (They even put shields on the higher quality Genuine and Natural Stag, which was not burnt.).

    The Viper was one of the patterns that hooked me on GEC. It was hard to get this one, and they are still pretty hard to find. The pattern is the inverse of the 74. I am not usually a wharncliff fan, but this one was a must have for me.

    Next up, three of the all time greats, the 72, 73, and 74!

    I love that Texas Jack @Crazy Canuck ! Is it the 92 or 32 pattern. I also love that 47 @hornetguy . Both of those are classics.

    @Duckdog , Stuart, we are still waiting to hear more about that amazing steak! What was the cut and how did you cook it?

    Thanks guys. LT it's a 92 pattern, 7 dot. I'm not usually a larger pocket knife guy, but really liking the ~4" range lately from my usual ~3.5".

    Also got a Camillus 18 with me today, as I have for many months.
    It is a great 'little' knife, at 3 7/8"
    Slim, sleek, and slicey! :thumbsup:

    Edited to add: mine is later production, and not quite so pretty. With plain bolsters, plastic (plastag) scales.

    Quarantine rations. We're eating more healthy since we're not going out. Maybe we can keep these better habits after this all passes.

    You've got most major blade shapes covered!

    I may have to steal your line ...
    "Trying to maximize my lack of potential."

    I'll toss it out next time somebody asks how I'm doing.

    Love the medium jacks you've been showing!

    That's a great old cattle knife!
    And speaking of nice jacks...
