There's a new knife in my house.
Posted By: normhead, 01-12-2016, 03:07 PM

So, I had to take a picture of it. It's Tess's new camping kit.

Beautifully photographed Norm. I was going to comment on Tess being more likely to use a beautiful tool but just couldn't bring myself to type it.

You are trying to get me into some serious trouble here Mrs.

I have to admit, it doesn't get used very often. I was tempted to use it for this project, just to save me from lying on the floor to focus.

Basic light table - diffuser box and commentary

I have this thread bookmarked and I've been waiting to build something like that for myself - once I clear out a space in the basement and first build my worktable.
When we stripped out our kitchen I kept the diffuser panels from the overhead lights. I'm hoping they will work, although they've all acquired slightly different shades of yellowing over time.

Very, very nice Norm, both the knife and the image.

I don't use it very often, but it sure is nice to have when you want it.

Always a good sign that the discussion focus is on the subject of the photograph rather than the photograph itself. The best pictures, I think, don't force you to think about the fact that it's a picture. Btw, I'm a Fallkniven and Puma fan, myself.

This has been in my camping kit for thirty years. Tess' is much prettier.

And last time I used it, we cut cheese for cocktail hour. But it's good for lots of other uses, too.

I'm just putting it out there if anyone in my family is listening... My birthday will be coming up in a few months...

Still a beautiful tool, the steel and black would make a great black and white image, and I'm sure what ever is used to make the black handle is more durable than that cherry handle. That cherry is going to require some upkeep.

What do could you want when you have a DA 560?

It doesn't cut cheese very well and I really like that cherrywood....

Maybe I'll try a b&w shot. But your image is really nice. Buck should use it on their website... It could use some jazzing up.

We just discovered them, so, it will do it's first trip this spring. Although it may get used for a cheese knife when people visit.

Since I first saw that picture, I've been thinking how I'd like to brag on my kitchen knives that we got from master craftsmen in Japan. I was thinking I'd take a really good picture of those and use the caption from that scene in Crocodile Dundee: "Now, THAT's a knife!". I've been cooking for over fifty years, now, and I like to think I know what I'm doing in a kitchen, and I've got the tools to do it with. But I can't take a picture that'll equal that one. That's a dam-good picture. I wish I could take good pictures. Probably a lack of patience and discipline.

Very nice still life, Norm. I'm curious.... do you have black locust trees up there where you live? Some interesting wood, but you being an old woodworker, I'm probably preaching to the choir.
