A sloooow Monday(1-23-17) trying desperately to swap from being up nights to a daytime schedule, I was up 30 plus hours that Friday into Saturday, then 22.5 hours Saturday through Sunday… Sunday night I crashed, and other than about 4 hours, spread over 3 different times, I slept 30 hours until 6am Tuesday. Lol. One of those hours I was up around 1am, I went and got Monday’s mail… thus this pocket dump. ☺
The week 23rd to 28th was Extremely busy, outside working everyday in some amazing weather- the week prior was a few days at -30F, -40F, -45F here, a friend had -66F. -So this week’s amazingness was 20sF ABOVE 0! It got up to 28F one day. I hate to say it but it was too warm for me to work, I kept over heating. (I was out in the -45 every day of it, and apparently got acclimatized.)
Having said all that to say this… I was apparently too busy to take any pics. Lol.

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.
