    Hope you had a good trip and friendly relations with TSA! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Impressive pair, Jon! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: That Sears scout is making me break the 10th Commandment. :rolleyes:

    Sounds similar to plans I had during stop-smoking challenges in years gone by! ;)

    Thanks, José. :)

    :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the follow-up info; it's sure a good-looking knife. :)

    Sweet Swayback Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Jack. :)
    To me, Arthur seems a more regal middle name than does Eclectic. ;)

    I'll bet that punch on the 29 could wreak havoc on the coronavirus, Mike! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Attractive shot of your stag HHB, José! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    I appreciate your comment, JJ. :)

    Thanks, Dean. :)
    I always admire the pen blade on the Texas Jack! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Venerable vintage pair, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Splendid old Case, LT! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Compelling canoe!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Glad that's who you were looking for, Jeff, and I'm happy to assist in a small way with your generosity! :thumbsup::cool::cool:
    I just searched this thread for "armed forces TL-29" and your post replying to Ripcord 82 came up, and then I could find his post easily. (No division by ANY number required! :rolleyes:)

    Congrats on the new Opinel! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    On my daily walks, I've been crunching through plenty of fallen sycamore leaves for a month already!
    Fine fall foursome in your photo! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for posting the informative links, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Alan; no idea how old that Mohawk canoe is (I think I knew once, but didn't write it down :().
    Love the brass dogs knife! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I'm not convinced Manny agrees with you on how fine the comb would work! :eek:
    That Navy Utility Jack is heartwarming! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    Hope you have a great visit with your family, Jeff! :)

    Thanks for the replies, John. :)
    Yankees are indeed baseball; Alan @joeradza can probably wax eloquent for you about their recent hot streak. ;)

    Alox of the Week for me is a black Pioneer:

    non-Alox SAK of the Week is a Vic Explorer:

    Don’t do it GT! That SAK Pioneer you have will do just fine :D. That’s one of my favorite knives. Thanks, as always, for the kind words!

    Thanks John, it's a favorite of mine, I love your Gunstock (76)? I know there's a story behind it in regards to being recovered but can't remember the details:oops:

    Thank you GT, I suspect there are times my parents wished they'd picked 'Trouble' instead :rolleyes: I always enjoy seeing your black Pioneer, it's a very elegant-looking SAK :cool: :thumbsup:

    The #76 is special to me, maybe my favorite knife of all of them. On vacation, my kids went exploring a little coastal town and all their shops. They came back excited because they found me a knife store. We went down to the store and I was excited to see a small collection of GEC knives, all at retail prices. My boys helped me pick out the one we liked the best, so it's my first brick-n-mortar purchase and the first knife my boys picked out for me. It came with acrylic handle covers, so I sent it to Glenn for a re-cover in ebony and a new shield. The sword shield reminds me of my boys because (like me) they love fantasy novels. So this knife reminds me of my boys like no other can. :cool::thumbsup:

    Happy to help, John!:cool:

    @5K Qs ~
    Thanks again. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem to be active on BF now, and the system will not allow a PM. Hope he’s ok and sees this thread!
    I appreciate your wishes regarding the grandchilluns coming! We haven’t seen the girls since we drove out there last Halloween:(

    Btw, the 10th covers wives and oxen, but it doesn’t mention knives, does it?

    Thanks it’s amazing how they were able to nest in 4 blades without making it too thick
    And the blades were ground down to almost a zero bevel they cut great
