Vernon (poopleasures), and I made this trade over the past few weeks. I swapped the pen & letter opener for this super nice knife with a blue oval in it.. Whoop, Whoop!! I likes it a lot. His wood knife is so meticulously crafted, and, very cool. A nice combo of woods, and action just like a regular pocket knife Thnx for the swap, Vernon. The pen & letter opener are both made of 30+ year old Walnut, and Pine that came out a barn that was built back in the 1800’s. I just wanted to share this with ya’ll. As I always say, comments, good/bad/ugly, are always appreciated. Thnx again, Vernon.

Nice look set of projects. I think both of you made out well! You bring up a good idea….with all of the different talents in here and most of us hobbyist, you might be starting a new trend of trading.
