That is a GREAT story.  I love that you gave her a knife for Christmas every year.  In my heart  of hearts I hope you have one of the pearls and one of the knives you gifted to her.  What an awesome display that would make with one of her guns or slings!

Thanks for sharing, Rome.

When I was growing up my mother used to tell us about when she was a little girl.

Every christmas she would ask for a pearl handled pocket knife and she said it seemed like she got one almost every christmas.  Then just a few weeks after christmas here knife would disappear and her grandmother would tell her someone stole it.  The problem was my mother was a tom-boy and her father would get her that knife and her grandmother hated a little girl having a knife.  Momma said that after her grandmother passed away they found a half dozen knives in her dresser.

My mother used to carve things all the time and while she was alive I gave her a new pocket knife for christmas every year.  I can remember she used to carve wooden pistols for her grandboys to play with.  And she could make a pretty good sling shot too.

Boy, that is sweet, J.J.!

Those appear to be walnut scales topped-off with S&M's striking and unmistakeable Keystone shield...Beautiful, indeed! And a wharnie master, to boot! Yippy Skippy...Great score!

Congrats, my friend!
