The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Anyone else been asked, by someone, "What do you want for Christmas?"
Well, the Boss lady hit the family up with the question earlier than usual, this year. My usually long list was unusually short.
I'm actually fairly content these days and my "Wish List" required some thought. The process went something like this...
I've got plenty of cloths, socks, underwater, and the like. (Got them for my birthday.)
Could always use some booze and cigars. (Bourbon and a nice maduro stogie are great for front porch sitting.)
Got a new phone, back in July, so electronics are OK.
Running short of ideas, I start thinking of something in the sharp and pointy category. For some reason my interests have diversified, somewhat, lately. I'm still on the lookout for the linerlock version of the pocket ulu, and friction folders have become a fascination lately, so I had to dig deep for this one...
My list has a CASE "Trapper" Whittler on it. Only CASE could do this to me, as I really don't like trappers. In a nutshell, they put a sheepsfoot carving blade into a Trapper frame. Sure it would have been better with a Wharncliffe, but that can be fixed.
For those interested, its a SMKW exclusive, # CA21951...
There's mine, so I'm asking y'all,
What's on YOUR list?
The proto for that knife was made in wood. Kevin Pipes gave it to iKC for a project. We had it signed and gave it away last year at Rep weekend. !6 year old and under were allowed to enter a coloring contest for it. It was a lot of fun
OOOOOOh! JJ, that does sound promising!
... a dead giveaway !!!
Like when an additional copy of A.G. Russel Knives started showing up .. addressed to Abby.

The Mrs got her own Smokey Mountain catalog, the other day...I believe that's a good sign of something sharp and pointy, perhaps under the tree.
You sound like a "Happy Camper" there, JJ .. 'n I can see why. Nice useful blade in a frame that's comfortable in hand.

Yep. The sweet CASE Trapper/whittler arrive under the tree.
Been busy, but pics and review are forthcoming.
Now that she is getting her own catalog, maybe more will show up!
