Some recents pocket dumps. ( Jan 23-29 2017)

​ 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. 

Sunday, the 29th, 

My older Eco Drive pilots chronograph that I don’t wear much anymore..

The ever trusty peanut.

My only actual Every day carry, or as close to it as I get, my copper tags. 

🙂

Knife of the day, 1-21-17

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.

It ain’t much…

​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  😀

Christmas knife again..

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.

A Christmas knife 

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.
