S&W presentation knife with box and J. Russell & CO Green River Works. My Dad gave them to me.

The S&W's too heavy to carry, but maybe the Green River will get used this season.
My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    And when the wood rots off, just replace with elk antler slabs.

    Question for you, shush.....can a man legally carry a pocket knife in his pants pocket when he's out and about in the Mother Country? I'm talking about a standard size, maybe 3 inch blade, etc. Something like a Boker, Case or Swiss Army knife?

    Green River knives come in a number of useful shapes...yours is a "Buffalo Skinner"...usually carried with a straight-bladed "ripper" in a double sheath by those in the business.
    I love those knives, but I have never owned one that I haven't lacerated myself with from one extent to another...those suckers are sharp!

    Funny you should mention how sharp they are right after I bandaged my finger :bang:

    Yes indeed woodsy.

    Non locking blades, its cutting edge not greater than 3 inches - so it is "exempt" from the legislation requiring that a person carrying this knife in public must have "a good reason".


    Just be aware though;

    ''A court will decide if you’ve got a good reason to carry a knife if you’re charged with carrying it illegally.''



    Top, Spyderco Pingo, my day-to-day carry.

    Bottom, Lansky Sharpeners Slip Joint.

    Bit bulky for my pants pocket but very solid when open.

    Both UK Legal to carry.


    Fixed blade?

    Like this one I made myself?

    Very big no.

    You will need "a good reason" to carry it.

    eg. Hunting, Fishing or Camping etc.

    Not something I would buy myself, it was a gift/raffle prize thing, at a local shooting club.

    They could well be. :up:

    They are just a set of placemats for the kitchen table.

    We got them because they reminded us of family holidays in the beach hut at Abersoch bay.
