The power of ceramic is underestimated!

This one never needs sharpening, easy to clean, easy to handle, you can have it in the dishwasher, it doest stain the food, nor does it pick up taste from foods.
Its truly a piece of art. Wanna buy it for lets say 500 USD? Its a steal!

Looks like a machete. Did a quick search, and Clyde Cutlery (of Clyde, OH) used to make them for the US military.

clyde cutlery were famous for their kitchen knives and machetes. They made knives for the military during ww2 to vietnam. In 1970 there was a fire and the factory burnt down that same year they were sold to another company name shelby-clyde . They finished their orders by salvaging what steel they could and just faded away.

Awesome bull nose, Randy! Me want!!! Great story, too.
I didn't get a single kitchen related gift this year, which I'm ok with. I have far too many of everything...sort of. I got a beautiful tool cabinet so I can finally store my stones, sandpaper and of course tools and scales in a good spot. I also got a great little Gillette Double Edge razor, as well as the typical stuff. My wife told me that something else is on its way, but is somewhere in the mail system. Who knows what it might be...all I know is, I got spoiled :D

Word. The ones I already use I really like the edges I get off of them. Use them mostly on stainless so far, but man those edges are so fun and so different from synthetics.

Trying to understand the benefits of having whiskey shaving cream. So when you get stopped by the police, and they ask if you have been drinking, you can say, "No, its my shaving cream!".

Dang Joe, those are nice!

Actually it is one gun but two pictures I should of put a space between. It is chambered in 45 Colt like all of my cowboy action guns. This jewel finish off the 1873 colt models now I will aim at either the Remington or S&W guns of the same period, that is if my money holds out.

I'm a bit of a shooter myself, but never tried cowboy action. What else do you compete with? Lever action rifles? Shotgun? Or just SA pistols?

Actually there are several types of groups from SASS to NCOWS. I belong to NCOWS (National Congress of Old West Shootists) which is more historical in both the guns, cloths etc. Speed isn't a major factor as accuracy is.

Now as for shooting I have 3 of the pistols, 1 each in 4 3/4" barrel, 5 1/2" and now the final one in 7 1/2" barrel all Uberti Cattleman 1873 model Colt replicas. I shoot a Rossi R92 which is a replica of the 1892 Winchester with 20' octagon barrel and a Liberty 12 ga. side by side with 24" barrel double hammer/triggers. All of my guns are finished to match the pistols being blued, case hardened and walnut stocks/grips. The rifle and pistols are all in 45 Colt also and I shot black powder in composition with them though they all can fire SAAMI standard loads without problem. The rifle can also handle +P loads as well though I wouldn't try the in the pistols any more than I would in the same model Colt even today.

Here is a video from our last shoot, I'm in the brown/tan pants, black shirt, brown suspenders and brown hat.

Dang, some really awesome stuff here! I think my favorite gift is a first printing copy of "A Treasury of Great Recipes" by Mary and Vincent Price.
