    There's a similar kick on the Ancient Barlow. Stovepipe?

    I think it looks different...the lambfoot has a larger notch on both sides of the kick cut out. Go to the guardians of the Lambsfoot thread and it looks pretty obvious.

    I keep looking at these and thinking this is (these are) probably my favorite knife pattern GEC has ever done. I mean I like several patterns, but this one really appealed to me. Not at first mind you, heck I wasn't even paying enough attention to see it coming up. But when I ordered the Natural Canvas I still didn't know how much until it was in hand. Now I've got a few of them and they arent going anywhere. Years of satisfaction for a few days of suffering the sites clamoring for what I was able to get.

    I've enjoyed reading the responses and conversation about this pattern too. The desirability as well as the awe of others will probably become part of the story of my knives (#93 and Lamb), even if that sounds a little corny now.

    I tried to get a "full stovepipe" kick on both, but GEC's processes would only allow the actual abbreviated one. It still allows current and future adjustment!

    I have to agree with you. That is some first-rate ebony.

    Uhh Ohh...

    Absolutely beautiful. Sometimes with ebony you don't know if you're going to get some color inclusions, but with this one its all deep beautiful black.
    Pull is really good, walk and talk is excellent, fit and finish, lock up is solid, grinds are good, very sharp, attractive doesn't begin to describe it in hand! Really I think one person could have done a thoughts post and the rest just fall in line with that.
    Thanks to the person that alerted me that there was one more available. ;)

    I'm confused. Several people have referred to the wooden lambsfoot knives as ebony. I thought the covers were African blackwood?

    Ebony :thumbsup: At one point, very early on, Charlie did mention AB for the lambsfoot but they ended up with Ebony.

    Well my favorite GEC is a Sheepfoot 77 Barlow. I ended up with a Gabon Ebony Lambfoot, and while I don’t know if it will displace my 77 Sheepfoot as the number 1 in my RFP, it just may :D. Like to post pictures, but I am still illiterate at that. :confused:

    Just paid for my cocobolo ramsfoot from CK. Retail price on these is pretty great. Not used to sub-$100 price tags on GECs, been a while since I bought one new for that.
