What do I collect....hummm....Clutch pencils - love them 2mm Mechanical pencils Bibles Slide rules - K&E are my favorite SAK’s - a torn love affair between my favorite 111mm and the 91mm. Firearms
Rapidray,what is the difference between a clutch and mechanical pencil?
Clutch pencil will drop the lead completely out of the pencil when you depress the button.A Mechanical pencil will only advance the lead a little bit at each depression of the button.
I used to feel I had to justify owning things, but now I buy what the hell I want. Life's too short.
Ukuleles. Mostly older mass produced ukuleles from the 20s and 30s to the early 60s. I have a few Harmonys that are players, the best sounding one from the 20s, solid mahogany with a wood fret board. A couple of plastic ukes from the 50s that are cool, not much to play but look great on the wall. My all time favorite is a T&K Ceniza long neck tenor made up the road from me in Waianae. All koa, sweet sounding and great action. Made in the late 80s. This is the one I take out when we play with older musicians. All of my day-to-day ukes are nothing special, just good, solid instruments. My wife has already told me that if I buy one, I have to get rid of one.
Okay, here you go. The plastic ukes are from the 1950s and pretty much wall art. The Harmony ukes are both decent players, one from the 1920s or 1930s and the stenciled uke from the 1950s. The Ceniza long necked tenor is my favorite of all my ukes. Made from Hawaiian koa wood and beautifully crafted in the 1980s. This is my play in public ukulele.
. Whats interesting is when you ask a Hawaiian what their heritage is they almost always include Portuguese among many other.
Those look great! I love how they sound, too! You do know you have to thanks us portuguese for it, right?
