The Knife of Man's Desiring

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.

Restoration project begins. The folding knives are heirlooms from my late father-in-law, a boy scout knife of unknown make and a case knife. We shall see.

I own more Barlow's than any other folding knife but they're too large for EDC. I have them in my tool boxes, glove boxes, and junk drawers though because they're serious working knives. I have one that's 8" when open.

I did hear, the other day, that the bird's the word.

That is all.

Take a look at Rough Rider stuff. Very good quality for the price.

I have a Barlow knife from RR that has bone scales that cost me maybe 10$
