    Yep. :)

    Repairing a friend's hollow door they knocked a hole in, cut a "key" for the filler.

    It is... something about that sheepsfoot, with the saw cut, and those fabulous colors, and that squared off butt that just speaks my language. :cool::thumbsup:

    A 48 degree F and sunny day can feel like heaven after several weeks of dreary and dark days.[​IMG]

    Not fancy, but a great tool. Probably my favorite punch. Does anyone understand the meaning of that shield? I have never thought of hammering a knife through a nail! I bet @Old Hunter can explain its meaning and origins!

    There used to be a very nice man on the Porch who loved these old Buck stockman knives, but he just disappeared. I cannot remember his avatar name, but I believe it started with a C. I have been worried about him. He just stopped posting. Does anyone know who he is? - (EDIT, thank you @akaMatt and @r8shell for the UPDATE on Clay. I hope he has found peace with his decision. He certainly could not have found a better person to trust his remaining collection to than Rachel.)

    I hate it when people vanish, as did Randy Redden, @r redden . Anyone stay in contact with Randy? I believe he is okay and just left because he grew weary of some trivial silliness. I miss his enthusiasm and admired his tenacity in the face of a lot of adversity. He is a good guy. I hope you come back Randy.

    Finally got my hands on a 25 EO, and it does not disappoint.

    That’s a nice knife, and I also think those punches are cool, although I don’t own any like that. Are you thinking of CHNeal, maybe? I remember he used to post a lot of nice Buck knives. Last I remember he may have been taking a break to focus more on family and other such things. Then he sold off a lot of his knives on the exchange to help out a friend who had fallen on some hard times last summer. Seemed like a really good guy. Not sure his current status.

    Had the scooter out today rayof.gif
    I like a nice slim knife in my pocket when I'm on the bike. In the event I ever hit the deck, I'd rather not have something hard and thick to create a point of impact :eek:

    Thanks, guys. Made of scrap pine and soda cans I suspect, but when sharpened, they cut paper very well.
    Last summer, @CHNeal decided to take a step back. I hope all is well with him.

    I am currently honored to be the keeper of his "misfit" collection.

    I beleive back in the day Buck use to promote their 440c to be able to cut through a bolt. Thus the knife bolt hammer emblem or something like that

    I was just going to say that--it was an old marketing gimmick. There's an old thread about it:

    Due to unusually high Sasquatch activity in our area recently, I carried both a fixed blade and a folder while out in the woods today.
