    I'm a sucker for the smooth bone. In just a few years it patina's like ivory. I posted pics earlier.

    Every
    Single
    Time
    I buy a knife without a pocket clip, I end up selling it because I just don't carry them that way.

    But this thread is like a glass of bourbon to a guy with his one month chip.

    These knives are beautiful.

    Organic cover materials are completely traditional, and beautiful, and came from a dead animal anyway. But GEC offers lots of micartas and acrylics too.

    What type of fruit/plums are those?

    They look like something my grandparents had at their ranch when I was younger.
    As a kid, we would climb these trees and eat all these small plums that were really sweet & tart.

    "Wild Plumb". Mom made jam from them last year but they guy that takes care of that part of the property roundup-ed them so it was a no this time. They make a great shot though.

    My grandmother had a tree in her yard with plums like that. We ate them many summers. My favorite homemade jelly ever.

    Not to sound stuck up about my photos, but if that doesn't make you want to run out and get an elderberry Dixie Possum Skinner I don't know what will.

    Oh yeah I know...it has a secondary thats a wharncliffe.:)

    Thats easy math. The Dixie Possum Skinner has two blades. And dealers have a bunch of #38 specials since May 2017, so plenty of time to get the 38 special later. :14:

    The corn nuts one? Its a GEC #93 Ramsfoot. Almost 4", Ramsfoot blade, very well done. They are hard to find. Probably have to hit ebay it to a WTB thread, although a few dealers may still be able to find one, its unlikely as they sell out in less then two minutes!

    The ramsfoot and wharncliff blades have a lot of appeal to me especially when carving, but I find it difficult to maintain a perfectly flat profile when it needs resharpening. The point wants to round off and I start to get a little recurve happening.

    What are you using to sharpen? I find the straight edge blades the easiest by far to sharpen, but only on bench stones.

    Don't dip the tip and don't rake it off the edge.

    That seems to be it in a nutshell. If I can't bring an edge back by leather and compound I put it on my 1X30 belt sander. The sander will bring an edge back in seconds. I don't like fooling with a stone.

    I will have to make a jig for the belt.

    Thanks!

    Out of the few 93’s I have, the thickness & feel of this one probably is my favorite (not to mention awesome looks!)

    I have been eying a Huckleberry boys knife. Something in a medium jack configuration. I like good pieces, but I also enjoy the hunt for a good price.
