Bermuda Green and Osage Orange for me today.
JK Bluegill flanked by a Mini Copperlock and my Peanut.
@5K Qs this one comes in at 3 5/8” closed.
That's a great looking little fixed blade.
That looks like a very handy pairing.
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.
A black Case jackknife.
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.
These two for me today, Happy Friday!
Fedex was good to me yesterday. They delivered this Case SS Pocket Worn Harvest Orange Bone Sod Buster Jr.. I really like it I'll carry it today and break it in.
Been carrying this one (mostly) daily since March. I too will carry more then one knife to give others some pocket time.
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.
