I got the most wonderful and unexpected bomb today! He’s free to own up, but I won’t say who until I ask. Let’s say Texans have everything big, especially their hearts! ::ds::
I opened them smallest to largest. Oh wow.
The German pen was first. That little beauty is going straight into my gentleman’s knives where it will fit very well. Likewise the gorgeous little Imperial. I recently got a very similar one in yellow. A lovely pair!
A Richards Mountie, and one I didn’t have! Yay!
Thé Challenger is a great piece of history. I must get some proper polish fit it and the guard on my Bangkung.
Zorro! Way cool! The Spanish Robin Hood. My plastic ‘50s Zorro uke nearly leapt off the wall when I unwrapped it. :wink:
I have loved the look of toothpicks since I first saw one, but my little black widow has been the only example I owned. I also really like wood and brass. Double whammy!
As I was opening the packages, I was thinking, ’’ couldn’t possibly be a bone handled three blade in there. That would be too much.’’
Unbelievable. And it’s a Camillus with just enough pocket smooth to make it totally delicious! I actually said something unladylike! Several somethings!
Awesome, awesome, awesome! ::not_worthy::

A Camillus 72. You lucky girl. No accumulation is complete without one. You now own one of the finest knives in the world. ::super_happy:: ::tu:: ::ds::

Edit: P.S. that little Imperial jack is another fine acquisition. ::tu::

Excellent! I like that description a lot. If I had room, I would add it to my sig box.

Funny thing - when my IXL saw what was coming in, it just slithered out of my jeans without being asked and quietly took up residence in my jacket. ::not_worthy::

This unusual bomb appeared anonymously the other day. Not exactly sure what they would be used for, but it's a cool little set of glass apothecary vials and a small light bulb.

Mahalo to the anonymous sender...whoever & wherever you are. ::handshake::
