Q, what did you do to deserve such an interesting bomb?
I agree with you, Floyd, unusual items. I've never seen any of those bottles in my rootin' around. Would love to know about them! ::hmm::

I don't know where to start on this...this new arrival required it's own "special photo". Being a relatively recent convert to the Camillus 72 pattern...I saw this Schatt and Morgan whittler on "the bay". I ended of winning it. It is my one and only S&M. As I was checking out, through Paypal, up popped Ivoryman, in the payment information. Seeing the knife was coming from Seattle...I "put 2 & 2 together" and PM'd to find out, yes this was our own AAPK Ivoryman. I had no idea it was one of his knives; however, it makes it that much more special...knowing it came from a "stable" of amazing knives. The knife is one of those that truly looks better in hand, than the pictures revealed. But what really took it "over the top" was Ivoryman's bomb...a personally carved walrus tooth, not normally included in his packages. I'm honored to have these two pieces as highlights in my meager collection. Thanks SOOOO much Ivoryman...these are special!!!

I didn’t post this bomb since it’s not a knife, but since that lovely collection of bottles is up, here goes.
This came in just over a week ago. I shan’t post the bombers name as I didn’t ask if I could, but her name is Alabama Belle!
What a wonderful instrument. She’s already been the star of uke club and we are off to the open mic today to do a song with the boys.
I have no idea how old she actually is, but I’m going to guess perhaps 1920’s.

You're welcome, glad the knife and tooth went to an appreciative home. I must say that scale is fabulous. Looks like it still works even with all that cracking on the foot step. Sweet pully too. Great shot.

I’ve been mystery bombed!
It’s a beautiful little Richards corkscrew/bottle opener/blade.
As it happens, I recently picked one up, but what a difference! My swap meet find is scungy, with a slightly rusty corkscrew and a very worn blade. It’s also got a couple of suspicious spots. ::paranoid:: I bought it as a place-filler.
The bomb is in wonderful shape! I don’t think it’s been sharpened and the scales are nice and clean!
Yay! ::groove::
I only have a first initial and last name on the sender, along with the address. I done recognize it. I bet when I find out, I’ll be going ::facepalm::
I’ve kept most of my bomb packaging for the addresses but one got tossed so it might be him. Anyone want to ‘fess up?
Thanks! ::nod::

Ann, don't quote me on this but I believe it may be called a "bartenders" knife. I'm inclined to believe that because it looks like it belongs in a bar, poppin' tops and extracting corks. ::shrug::

Oh, yes it is! I’m inclined to think knifers are the best people! I suspect it’s because they were mostly raised ‘old school’.

Scott lived up to his generous reputation today. That Imperial England showed up in my mailbox. Thank you young man. I am so pleased with this sweet medium jack. It fits right in with my little collection of medium jacks and I love it. Very clean knife.
