    Very nice knife! I carried a Schrade LB7 for YEARS; after that an Uncle Henry LB8. I still have a fondness for that style, including the Buck 110.

    I am seeing some very impressive blades here. I've been a pocket-knife carrier-arounder for at least ten years now. It started when I was in university, and it just never stopped.

    I have five knives. Two miniature ivory-scaled two-blade knives, one mother-of-pearl-scaled 'dress-knife', I guess you'd call it, one single-bladed knife with horn scales, and one medium-sized stockman knife with black (bakelite?) scales.

    I carry a Leatherman Wave everywhere I go that doesn't involve traveling by air. It isn't fancy, but the belt sheath is done in decent brown leather (much better than they used to make).

    We keep a small picnic knife in the car, as well (plus another Leatherman in with the spare tire because, well... you know). The picnicker is a Frost fixed blade woodworker's knife, hilted, with a red beech handle and a stamped, blonde leather sheath. Wicked sharp for apples and cheese, and also handy for stashing in my sock when wearing a kilt.

    I've loved and lost a number of pretty little pocketknives, most with horn or exotic wood handles, because they fell out of my pocket, got left in a coverall for a few months, or I laundered them into rusty oblivion. Sheathing them on my belt seems much the safer option, and I've never owned a pocketknife (including a couple of very portly Swiss Army knives) that matches the utility of the L-man.

    K&M match safes are nearly bombproof! Nice knives, too.

    LOL... I have the same problem!
    I usually carry two knives but I still lament not having a good reason to carry more...
    Some nice stag you've got there. I don't own any GECs but I do have a Tidioute Cutlery Barlow in Ebony. I'll post that one next...

    Pardon my ignorance, but, are they eggs? Never seen eggies that colour before.

    LOL... Yes, those are pickled eggs. When I make my own I don't put coloring in them but some commercially bought pickled eggs are dyed red.

    Well well, you live and learn. Back in the day when we used to have proper pubs here they often used to have a jar of pickled eggs behind the bar but they never had colouring in them.. I trust they taste better than they look!

    I suppose they are an acquired taste but I love them.
    For what it's worth that's a pickled hot sausage next to them. Good eating right there. All it's missing is a pickled onion or two!
