My Bride's grandpa's knife

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

I found my bride's grandpa's puukko in a box in the garage. It's in much better condition than this one

Very nice.

A good replacement for your Derringer idea.
