Here are a couple more folders I have. I am trying, without much success, to learn more about taking pics. It is a long process for me.

Looks like you getting there, Rod. Just make sure your focus point is on the handle instead of the blade. Some cameras allow you to magnify the review photo to check for sharpness in the areas of concern. An aperture of f8 to f11 is good to use, and a tripod is essential.

If your camera cannot be fitted with a remote shutter, use the self-timer feature on your camera. If you have a choice between 2 seconds and ten seconds, use the ten seconds to allow the camera to "settle down" before the shutter trips.

The new Photo thread should be ready to install on the forum sometime next week. Rick has approved the thread and location, and we are working on the introduction page format.

Hang on a little longer.

Thank you. I have one more 2 blade Dowell that I will get some
pics of tomorrow.

Buck I went out and bought a couple more lights and it helped. But
I think I might need two more. I use a tripod, light tent and a timer on the camera.
I have, well my wife has, an "wireless shutter release" on her camera, which I use.

I have been shooting at F11. I too thought the brown color on the Fossil
Ivory was out of focus. But when I looked at the knife, the pic is representative
of what the FI looks like.

A couple more Dowell folders. Peter this is the other 2 bladed Dowell I own. I need to have Bret Dowell make me another one, I think.
I carry the single blade folder a lot.

Rod,

These are great looking Dowell knives. Really like the two bladed model.

I'm a belt buckle guy. Tell me about your buckle in the photo.

The belt buckle ( I will take a picture in the next day or so) was a gift from one the folks here on the Forums.
It is a Smith and Wesson buckle. On the back is the date 1975. The scene on the buckle is taken from "the Hostiles" one of the series of paintings commissioned by S&W in the early 1900's.

The belt buckle. I think you got me very interested in belt buckles now. Probably need a couple more S&W types.
