Repairing a friend's hollow door they knocked a hole in, cut a "key" for the filler.
@JohnDF it just hopped outta the tube give me a minute LOL
It is... something about that sheepsfoot, with the saw cut, and those fabulous colors, and that squared off butt that just speaks my language.
A 48 degree F and sunny day can feel like heaven after several weeks of dreary and dark days.
70 degrees feels good here after the recent arctic blast.
Queen made Robeson
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.

Two Bucks with bodge-job modifications.
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.
In addition to my Thrifty Thursday carry, an Old Timer small stockman, I have my 86 in tortoise...I know, big surprise!
Had the scooter out today
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
Completely gratuitous and unnecessary pic of my bike because....
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.
These Barlows today :
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:
Sweet Harry !!
I had pulled this one out in the a.m.
I’ll now carry it a while.
A great night to all.
Thank you Gus !
Thanks John, I think it is ! I am so glad I figured how to sharpen it. I am enjoying carrying it a lot !
Best of luck my friend, cheering for you here
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.
