Haven’t done a knife post for a while.
One of my favorite carrys, the venerable peanut, the knife that cuts 10x above its size. This one is Carhartt branded, by Case Cutlery.
I rarely carry Just a peanut anymore, prefering a larger grip, usually around a 3 1/2″ or 3 5/8″ knife, not only longer than the peanuts 2 7/8″ but wider, easier to handle. But a peanut is still usually all the blade I’d ever need. One of these was at one time the only knife I carried for a little over a year straight.
I don’t usually like the burnt bone or stag look, but this one I do. It fits Carhartts’ style well, as does the no nonsense satin bolsters and as ground blade finish. Lanyard ring hole added by me.
Usually when I carry a peanut, it’s watch pocket carry under a Zippo. In this case on a pocket watch chain clipped off to a belt loop with a nite-ize key biner, and it rides over the top of the lighter.
All of yesterday’s edc 😁 😀 My one and only Great Eastern Cutlery knife, a Tidioute brand beaver tail trapper from 2007.
Oviously a light carry day, although, ironically compared to the average full load out day; it got used. (Unemployed right now, so I can honestly go two or three days of full carry without really using anything, other than maybe a flashlight or headlamp).
It cut a mostly empty motor oil bottle in half to feed to the wood stove as sort of octane booster/firestarter /enricher. 😈;)😆:D 😀
Can’t believe it’s here already, but it is!
New years eve carry;
New year’s day carry;
Little Christmas knife update… I’m not carrying or using the Christmas tree Case… ‘Cause I can’t find it!
So Christmas eve carry was my Case ’46 pattern humpback half whittler.
And these for Christmas day;
’48 Trapper for dinner (roast duck was a little tough in spots but delish!) And Dad’s old Saber jack knife for package duty.
I keep this one handy every year from Christmas eve until new years day, or there abouts. Got it in a round table gift event at Christmas of 2006 on another forum. Was my first Case knife. Shortly after, I removed the pocket clip and locking liner, and edced it for a bit. I also reground the bladend to a full flat grind.
For 6 or 7 years now it’s been my dedicated Christmas or December knife.
Highly modified originally 1 of 300 red Christmas tree bone Mid folding hunter from 2003.
Interesting picture thread idea that came up at BCUSA (bushcraftusa.com). These are the two obvious pairing that came to mind.
Classy western, Ariat H2O Ropers, and Berretta Stampede .45.
And around the house standards, cheap slippers, and Bersa Thunderer. 380
