- sorry, same folder as the other day...........fish are different though
This just arrived today, the beginning of a long friendship.
Toting a couple whittlers today, one covered in wood.
Big Jack for Wooden Wednesday.
Rooster & a Heritage jack today.
Thank you my friends Good to see your fine photographs and equally fine cutlery choices
These 2 for garden fall clean-up duties today :
Classy Case . Ebony is always in season .
Thank you, Jack! You have a rather stalwart pair you are totin' today - very nice.
I am eschewing Wooden Wednesday and going straight to the Stag .
First time I've carried my shiny new 15. I opened a candy bar with it. Its performance was superlative
And fine Stag it is Dylan .
Great to see you back Gevo . You always post some interesting photos my friend . Have you taken any road trips like you used to do out to your tree ????
Thanks, JJ. It makes a guy feel pretty confident when he's got a couple of knives with "Victor" in the name and a couple more with "Imperial".
Thanks for the supportive comments, guys, although most of the pocket wear on the Alox occurred before I bought the knife in an antique store while I was on vacation a few years back. Here are some pics I took this morning when I took the scenic route to work, walking most of the Reeds Lake Trail that circles a lake in East Grand Rapids.
Pioneer on top of trail map where I started the trip:
A view of the lake from near the trail map:

What are you whittling there, Dan? Looks like you have a giant pencil for which you carved a big cover to protect the point! Did you use the Eureka to do it?
Your pair is exquisite, and even though you're stagless with those two, you've got some exemplary bone! I, of course, am quite taken with the Queen canoe!
Very nice, José! I have a Flying Falcon like that on my desk at work, but it has no message/advertising on the handles, just blank yellow.
Thanks, Steve. (Of course, with my rotation schedule, I don't think of myself having "choices" - my knives are all "predestined". I should get back into choosing a couple of "free choice" knives each week to supplement all the "assigned" knives.)
I like the "can-do attitude" displayed below the photo; that's a quality quintet that deserves to be carried, regardless of meteorological conditions!
Nice cudgel, Jeff! I immediately thought, in pandemic mode, "If you can hit someone with that, they were unhealthily close anyway." (And what you say about gun & knife shows is why I won't go to one until we've got an effective and widely-used vaccine. I just can't see most attendees wearing well-fitting masks, staying 6 feet away from everyone, and generally obeying orders that didn't originate in their own minds. )
Your last sentence is a good T-shirt slogan.
That's an inspiring story, Jeff!
Reminds me of a verse in the old hymn (at least in my church, and apparently in Charles Wesley's original poem) whose title would be texted as something like "O 4 1K Tongues 2 Sing":
Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosen'd tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
Maybe with elections less than a month away, I should start voting for my favorite knife when people post more than one.
I'l vote for the KK Kattle Knife!
One of the most memorable knives I've seen on BF, Dwight! (I think you and Ted each have one.) You have the best toys, too!
Royal and Ancient, Dean!
Superb pen knife!
Great to see that AG Russell scout again, Tom; one hasn't been posted for a long time IIRC!
Thanks for the ID, Steve. I was going to guess OD, but thought they were too brown for that; shows just what a "micarta expert" I am.
I hope you get lots of enjoyment from it, Les!
Thanks for the ID, Dean. I can't seem to keep all of Case's stockman models straight, especially the "mediums".
Handsome jack with its faux stag covers!
Thanks, Bruce & John; I like that USA Imperial a LOT!
Thanks, JJ & Jack. I'm not formally trained in marketing or rocket science, but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize you want to "put your best foot forward" to impress others. So I posted the pile side of the RR Painted Desert canoe, since I think it looks better than the mark side:

View attachment 1433138
Better than lemon pudding, JJ!
I vote for the big knife with the triangular shield and French ivory covers!
Good wood! Did you keep that one for Wooden Wednesday carry, too?
Thanks for the info, Paul.
I've been looking at Case patterns for a while, and never saw another with a pen like that.
Prestigious, yet practical, pair, Jack!
I'll vote for the stag lambsfoot HHB.
Gorgeous knife, José; the horn is exquisite, and I especially like the stripes around the butt of the handle!
Extremely attractive wood lockback Joker!! What kind of wood is that?
I spend a lot of time getting the right edge on my new knives and stropping them daily, being sure to keep them hair popping sharp...
... just so, some days, I can open a candy bar with it that I could otherwise open it with my fingers.
Thank you my friend No Sir, have not seen my tree in many moons, but often think of her
Last picture taken on February 3rd 2019
Thank you Harry
The stag on your pruner is divine !!!! I see why you love it so
Northwoods Coolidge Jack in jigged cherry wood
