This is really embarrassing.  I found that Kbar when I lived in an impromptu trailer park in the 70's.  There was a gate you had to open, drive through, them get out and close behind you.  Otherwise the cows would get out.  The gate was a pain but the rent was cheap.

I stopped at the gate and walked off to the side behind a bush to take a leak.  Looked down and I was peeing right on that knife.  Picked it up with two fingers and threw onto the floorboard and it's been with me ever since.

I saw these at Academy today I almost grabbed one, but I think I would use the Havalon fillet version more so.

Everyone I know of who has one of those loves them. To me, you lose something. Guess you have to decide why you are doing what your doing. Someone who enjoys those probably also enjoys Lever drag two speed reels, recoil operated pistols and gas operated rifles.

So it took me a while, but my son bought me a straight razor…..basically a no name, made in Pakistan, Damascus steel, razor.  About 10 hours later I took the raw steel down to shaving sharpness.  I have never shaved with a straight razor,  but willing to try with this one….so if you don’t hear from me for a while, I might be in the hospital with a severed jugular vein 😁….Bill

Pakistani surgical & tool steel can be an excellent value
some of my best dirt-cheap, no-name stuff
(no knives -- hemostats, manual can openers, etc.)

I was digging through some drawers and came across this Case XX Changer lock back knife.  On my 15 year anniversary (1986) with the Retail Clerks Union I was given the choice of awards and of course I picked this.  You can change out the blades by fully depressing the lock back and choose whatever blade best suits your need.  With solid brass bolsters and jigged bone handle it is not a light weight.  The blade lockup is as solid as my Buck 110 folder.  Today’s prices for this knife is pretty steep, but considering I had given 15 years of service to the retail industry, a small price.  When I left state service after 25 years all I got was a clock, and still haven’t received it after 7 months. But that’s another story……Bill

 Bill, what else you got hiding in that drawer ??

 Your "drawer" story reminded me that I have one in a drawer. Not as nice as those fancy ones posted here, but it's all I got. It's locally made thru friend of a friend. The handle is bone. The engraving is kinda nifty too. it comes to life when I hold it up to a mirror
