    I didn't much care for the bland plain white look, but I definitely wouldn't want it looking like a shop rag either.

    Alox of the Week is an Old Cross Pioneer:

    non-Alox SAK of the Week is a Vic Florist/Gardener:

    My rotation schedule actually "ran out" last week (after 52 weeks), and this week I'm just cobbling together some knives that I acquired since making the schedule. I hope to have a new 55-week schedule ready for next week.
    Anyway, that explains why I happen to have TWO bailed non-SAKs this week, and NO International knives.

    After "much deliberation" (only 3 or 4 days) I came to the conclusion I "need" to break the "stockman plus ___" habit.
    Way back when I was a young lad in Junior and Senior High School, my "normal" carry (no doubt "abnormal" to most I knew back then) was a Buck 110 on my belt, and a Demo knife (attached to a 30 or 34 inch (I forget which) knife chain lanyard) in my pocket.
    Since I "survived" with just those two for at least six or seven years in school, I should be able to do the same now ... correct?

    I'm going to see how long I can go without a stockman in my pocket.
    Carry is a standard production 2015 vintage Buck 110. (bolsters have enough patina to not be a daRn fingerprint/smudge magnet) (EDIT 10-7-20) Switched to August, 2020 web special brass, ebony, and S30V 110. Brass ain't gonna patina if I don't carry and use it ... and a Marbles MR487 "Demo Knife" on a 32 inch watch/wallet double chain lanyard.


    I am "cheating" a wee little bit. I put a (BTI) Old Timer 858OTB stockman in my rollator's tote/shopping bag ... "just in case" I need a budding/grafting blade (AKA: "Spey Blade") and/or sheepsfoot blade. It is joining my Mora Number 1 in the bag. :)

    Junior High & High School you'd find me with a Buck 500 Duke, and a minimumalist SAK, I forget the exact model. From about the age of 20 on I've carried a Stockman of some form or another just about every day, and on the days I choose to carry something else I fell secure in knowing that I have a 1995 Queen 49a in my truck at all times. Good luck, but I bet you feel a little underdressed before too long.

    Habaneros scare me. But that looks awesome.
    The amount of collective knowledge in this here forum is impressive.
    Did he reveal how he knew?
    I am always happy to see your lovingly worn Pioneer, Gary.:)
    I could never stick to any kind of totin’ schedule, though. I enjoy poking through the cigar boxes before bed choosing the next day’s totes, but quite often change my mind in the morning.:rolleyes:
