    Hello, all. Lots of friends here from the former location--but obviously, a brief intro is warranted. I'm a "retired" musician for whom EDC has become a new way of life (the last three years or so). I tend to collect knives, more than anything else, and my daily carry is minimal by some standards. I've always been an urban character--little or no experience with the great outdoors. I guess I can fill in other details as we go, so let's see if I can get some pictures loaded.:)

    Here's my Tactility. Told you the other day mine had a cut out logo. Which looks nice but is a nightmare when you just cut a hunk of cheese.

    Even if it's a nightmare, it still looks great.

    So you get cheese stuck in the cut-out ?
    It's a good looking knife. I saw it over the other place, love the scales on it.

    Yes, getting it unstuck is the hard part.

    Maybe they should include a tool for that. A "de-cheeser" as it were.:p

    Here's a Mini Skinner, fabricated by a Kansas knifemaker. I bought it at a knife/gun expo 20 years ago; it's like the fourth or fifth knife I ever purchased. I've never displayed it before, so it seems fitting that it should make its debut here in the new abode.

    The maker's name is Max Smith--I believe he had some regional renown.

    The blade is just over 2-1/2" from tip to hilt, and is made of cable Damascus--very unusual. I'll try to get some better pics later so you can see the texture of the metal. The handle is elk antler, with an ox spacer. Finally, the guard and buttcap are of brass. The sheath is also of the maker's own design. Both the knife and the sheath bear his logo: a roadrunner. Hope you enjoy!

    Just broke with my self-imposed buying moratorium. Last thing I did before retiring last night was order a Case Baby Butterbean I'd been eyeing for the last month. I thought it might be a good foil to whatever main blade I happen to be carrying. No shipping info yet. The wait begins...
