Now that's my kind of bike!
I don't know if I'd call it exceptional, but certainly a nice specimin. It's a Schatt and Morgan #54 Whittler:
You presented an awesome knife as well Harry. That stag is awesome and it’s such a cool old knife. Everything is good here, just plugging along through work and hunting season! Hope you’re doing good bud!
@Jack Black I always enjoy this thread and thanks for the comments! Hope your back gets better!
I'm sure your father would be pleased that you are carrying that knife... I'm certain this Christmas will be hard, but what seems to help is to have a "happy memory party" to reminisce about all the funny things he did and said...
The pain of loss will get easier, gradually... my dad "graduated" about 7 years ago, and while it still hits me pretty hard at times, those times are fewer than they used to be. Just writing this makes right now one of "those times".... carry the knife with happy memories..
Thank you for the kind words. Christmas is sure gonna be harder. Was also harder to write that message than I thought it would be.
I hope you think of your old man with fond memories also. Happy holidays from Denmark.
2020 Bladeforums Knife Rams Horn gets the nod for many reasons
Thanks a lot my friend
I'm very sorry for your loss.
Thank you very much sir.
That's very sad, I'm sorry for your loss Congratulations though, on your own impending fatherhood, and I hope that that all goes well for you and your good lady
Thank you. It has definitely been a rough year, for everybody, everywhere. I hope ‘21 brings more joy (and knives, let’s be honest) in the world. Happy holidays from Denmark
It has, but it sounds like you've had it worst than most my friend Wishing you a brighter and happier 2021
This year would have been a much harder choice for me if it hadn’t been for a lucky score. I finally found a knife I’ve been hunting for almost three years. It isn’t anything spectacular, but it speaks to me.
Just a week ago I was wondering when Jack Black would start this thread. Usually I have to think about it and narrow it down - not so this year. Back in early September I stopped by a local gun show, mostly to look for knives but just to experience the camaraderie, I haven’t been to a gun show in a long time. I met a fellow selling mostly moderns, but he had a few bayonets on display too. I looked them over and we talked a bit, when I told him what I really liked was pocketknives he invited me in to his booth and let me sit in front of a tool chest and pull out drawers and plunder through a collection he had purchased. I bought two Case pocketknives from the early 1980’s from him, patterns that I didn’t already have. One, a 1983 built 6308 really captured my attention, it was small at 3-3/8” OAL (just in my preference zone), had a decent size clip main, and is well made with great walk & talk and fit & finish. It has been my number one carry since the day I bought it - pushing my medium stockman assortment out on a regular basis. If the small clip was a coping blade it may even be the perfect knife! Here it is in an over-used photo. OH
Lovely knife Harry. The man who made that knife was paid a pittance, but the skill he possessed was obvious and undeniable. I can't imagine there being more than a half-dozen spring knife makers alive today who are able and willing to build a knife that follows the contours of an antler like that.
For me this was a pretty easy decision- Albers in Mammoth:
I’ve only really got into traditionals late last year and this year, and I’ve had a fair share pass through my hands in that short time, but without a doubt my favorite knife of the year is absolutely the 74 Mustang. Everything about it just appeals to me. It’s slim, it’s sleek, beautifully done burlap micarta covers, the perfect walk and talk, and my favorite blade shape, a drop point. It’s been used and well loved, and will be in my collection for the rest of my lifetime. A simple and elegant pocket knife. Well done!
Great post my friend, and I’m sorry for your loss. Will be my first Christmas without my dad to, I know all to well what you are going through. Going to be a weird one that’s for sure.
Thank you, I am very sorry for your loss too. Weird thing is, that I feel a stronger connection to my family now than before the accident, I hope you feel the same way, it’s a big comfort.
I wish the best for you and your family this Christmas and the coming year.
Looks pretty good to me Joshua
Great story my friend (Oh, to go to a gun show!) A very nice knife too
Very impressive Ernie
That looks like a great knife
Sorry for your loss
I noticed nobody has mentioned the giveaway, and can think of at least 3 reasons:
1) "Of course 'I'm in' dummy!"
2) "We don't need no steenkin' patch!"
3) Nobody read that far down my post
So what I propose is throwing everyone's name in the hat. If you really don't want to enter, please let me know. I'm sure we'll get there in the end
