Wonderful knife design and execution.  The engraved saying makes it so special. Sheath with the dolphins and the work on the back is great. 

That is an heirloom treasure.

Agree man can't buck mature nut that is exactly what we've been doing for a while now. The by products of fossil fuel pumped into the atmosphere is having an appreciable effect on climate to the point of disrupting  disruption not experience by human civilization. Those by products are easily traceable and have been increasing since the early stages of the industrial revolution with exponential increases seen throughout the last 100 years or so.


That is simply a fact. Accept the facts or not, deal with it or not... it doesn't matter. The facts remain unchanged. Not affected by denial regardless of how often repeated and surely unaffected by attempts at humor.

The only thing we can fairly say at this point is the problems we have created will be very inconvenient for those who follow.

To suggest human technology has no effect on climate in the face of evidence proving otherwise is a choice. An unfortunate one but still a choice. I do wonder though how your creator feels about your attitude towards the gifts you so blithely dismiss.  But that doesn't matter either. Right?

And of course, happy holidays to you and yours as well

Nice work! :thumbsup:    Where in the world did you find that dolphin stamp? :shrug:   It's cool! 8)

Those are regular uniform Dolphins.  Backed the sheath with two strips of leather and a short piece of steel.  Soaked the leather well and then used two c-clamps to press the image into the leather.

Crossed the mighty Mississippi at Memphis heading west after turkey day gathering in GA and NC. About 1/2 of the river bed was dry at crossing. No water traffic at all in the wet.  Not my usual country but the entire area is list as in drought conditions.

If this isn't a wake up call to climate change deniers and human contribution to the problem I don't know what will be. Sometimes science is inconvenient but it is still based in fact.

 Sorry about the drought my friend, you have to accept that it's only Mother Nature doing what She's good at, but if believing that it's everybody's fault that went before you just for living gives you some kind of comfort then by all means keep the lie alive in your mind, it didn't work when it was peddled as Global Warming, it isn't any more believable as Climate Change, I don't think most people deny that the climate is changing just like they don't deny that the world tips on it's axis occasionally, but they don't believe that it's caused by the weight of people migrating from one pole to another, or that the weather is changing because people hold BBQ's, drive fossil fuel powered vehicles, burn coal to generate energy, or because cows have allot of gas issues.
 I know that it's difficult to think that man is not in full control of his environment, but being a western man you should know by now that you can't buck nature, the land, or your environment, you only get by and do well when you learn to adapt to what nature gives you and the environment the Creator provides you with.   
 Just to show you my hearts in the right place Boomer, I thought of sending you a case of Cool Aid mix, but it looks like your a bit short of water to mix it with.   :shrug:   

 Hoping you have a Merry Christmas bud.   :choptree: :cheers:
