    I can’t remember the last time I was this enthusiastic about a knife release. This is going to be awesome.

    I may not find a one of the new Lambsfoot, but my Ancient will do just fine. It checks every box that I can think of. It is one of my favorite knives.

    I am not at all wanting to start an argument or a long discussion but please let me say something about it . I have 4 of the A. Wright Lambfoots a 2017 Taylors Eye Witness Lambfoot and this probably 100 + year old Taylors Eye Witness Lambfoot and Charlies SFO Lambfoot is MUCH closer to my old knife than my A. Wrights or new TEW . The main difference in Charlies SFO and my old TEW is the length . My old TEW right at 4 & 1/8 . All of the other brand old lambfoot knives that I have seen pictures posted of look very much like my old one .

    Your words and photo just made me pull the trigger on one. This will be my first GEC. I am very excited.

    Harry, I don't disagree with you. However, I am starting to think that my point is getting missed.

    With respect, as simply put as I can make it, if one is interested in the Lambsfoot, as a pattern and/or blade style, one needs not go far. They don't need to rely on Charlie's SFO to fulfill their fancies.

    That isn't to say that the Waynorth Lamb Foot shouldn't be desired and/or coveted. It is a Campagna SFO, after all! I am just hoping to convey that should there be wailing and gnashing of teeth due to missing out, there are Lamb Foot knives to be had elsewhere. Especially if one is genuinely interested in experiencing the merits of the pattern/blade shape.

    I have close to 15 (I think) Lambsfoot knives. I have more on the way and will undoubtedly continue to acquire them, it is easily the most prolific pattern in my knife collection. None of these Lambs look like the late 19th/early 20th century examples that Charlie based his SFO on. So I very much agree that folks should be excited for this effort, for more reasons than one.

    It is a special knife indeed.

    What you are saying is true and I agree with you and I also encourage people to really try a Lambfoot Blade .

    This knife is beautiful...Too bad most collectors won't be able to have one. I wish GEC would have ran the 93s with the Lambfoot instead of the Ramfoot. 90% of these will end up in safes, only taken out for bragging photos.

    I know, it's a SFO...the reservations closed in minutes...still would be nice to place a pre-order for one before they were made.

    Oh well, just a knife.

    I was a bit surprised when I found out GEC was only releasing the Lambfoot blade for Charlie's SFO.

    GEC has released a number of sheepsfoot knives over the years, and it would of been nice to finally get a general production run of a lambfoot blade.

    It took me over 4 years to get that Lamb Foot made!! Lots of begging and convincing. There may be a future one but not too soon!!

    Thanks for finally convincing Bill to make one Charlie!

    Four years is a long time in the works. You definitely deserve to have the honor of having the first release of the lambfoot knife.

    They should have listened to you sooner. There is a lot of pent up demand for an American Lambfoot. I will have to be happy with my Sheffield made lambfoots.
