    Thank you, Gary. Your RR half whittler does not have a flaw; it has a feature.

    It's always nice to see your sleek unclothed Imperial Diamond Edge, Gary.

    I recommend this approach. You get that long-time-bonding with your every day knife, and still get to change things up daily. It's the best of both worlds.

    It was a good run. I might have to give it a try (but I think I'd have to rotate a 2nd choice in there to keep it company from time to time).

    Thanks Greg and the ole Case does have a nice honest smooth pocket worn feel to it. The owner cared for this knife and it shows. It has it's share of battle scars over the years and when I post a pic of the pen you'll see it was the owners favorite blade:) Also the repair near the EO notch was done well, not perfect but enough to accomplish the task at hand. I enjoy imagining the life a vintage knife has lived and the owner who cared for it all those years:)

    Truth to that!

    My issue is similar in a way. I have a few staples - the B&S (since I got it), my Cadet, and a Rambler on my keys, that seem inseparable from my body. Then I try to mix in another blade so it’s not boring and I can accommodate other tasks (usual a knife with a sheepsfoot or wharncliffe).

    But then I have the problem of carrying too much! So do I drop one of the staples so it’s not as bland? Or simply only rotate out one blade - which gets boring as well?

    I think this classifies as a “first world problem”....

    Today was the last harvest before the frost. We have a lot of butternut squash that are still green and we're not sure what to do with them.

    Thank you, John! I can't recommend @JK Knives and his Bluegill enough. My most carried fixed blade by far.

    I've been doing this for ~4.5 years. My Peanut is always with me (even if it isn't in a photo), and the rest are up for daily decisions. It's fantastic. You create a bond with a knife you already like while still experiencing all the fun stuff about new knives. You might even find out that a certain pattern doesn't work as well as you expected or a knife you didn't have much of an opinion on at the beginning winds up being your favorite after continued carry. I still haven't found something better than my Peanut for a true edc, and I may never find one. I'm going to have fun doing research, though. ;)

    I should do this with my Lambsfoot, as it is a small and easy to carry knife. The lambsfoot also handles about any task I need.
