    I got this K9 knife here on BF in 2008. Made by Dan Koster and Tom Krein. Tom did the finish work on this one. The ones that Dan finished out had the X of 50 number on the spine. Blade is 3V.

    Well, it's about 5-hours later and I've mowed the back yard AND the front yard.

    Since I was doing okay, Cindy and I prepared our "Swamp Cooler" for the oncoming heat.

    Well, toted it to my dad’s house anyway, where I gave it to him. He carries the original sheepsfoot version I gave him a lot, but keeps saying he wishes it had a point, so I did a quick and dirty wharncliffe mod on this one for him. The nail nick looks a little raggedy, and the handle is from a failed attempt to add an inlay, but it is sharp and functional.

    Thanks, Mike.

    And it looks like great minds think alike. I have my identical Case jack out for tomorrow.

    Ed, you’re cutting your grass too short. There’s nothing left but gravel!

    I love the view out your back door in your other post.
    I’ll bet it’s a good place to relax and soak it in.

    My carry lately. Whenever I go to the cottage or in to the woods, anywhere where I might need something to whittle with, baton small firewood etc. I almost allways take my Brisa Elver with me. Very strurdy construction, suitable for heavy use and cuts wood well. Micarta handles might make it even better, but I wanted curly birch for aesthetic reasons, still the handle is quite comfortable. Handy size, fits in the pocket of my Helicon trousers. The Antonini is a great slicer for foodstuffs and other soft materials.

    Same to you John; your two jacks are certainly hafted in some wonderfully elegant wood!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thank you so much, Gev!!!
    I think your image perfectly illustrates "beautiful nostalgia;" two magical Barlows from two wonderfully storied old US cutlers!:rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thanks for your kind comment Harvey!!!:D
    Wow, those have to be the burliest stag covers I've ever seen; awesome!!! Your lovely Jack Black jack is no slouch, either; very cool!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    All of these knives were made by Schrade.
    This Blue Rope-cut Bone 4" knife, never made it to production.
