    Lovely. Please tell me you used an ebony knife for this.

    Somewhere there is a collector gnashing his teeth at this desecration. :mad:;):D

    My friend Stéphane Thomachot did it . Thanks for him.

    @kamagong , I know that it's a difficult mixture between the sadness to see an original Waynorth Lambfoot disappear and the pleasure to see a different version of this great knife .

    Very nice. I like the rivets (?) used to attach the covers to the liners.

    Only sadness if it's the bone covers that were replaced. I am only too happy to see a black hole (sunken pins) disappear. They are not objectionable on rough materials like stag and jigged bone, but on smooth ebony they are a blemish.

    Since you mentioned it... why are there sunken pins on wood covers? Only thing I can figure is they’re installed after the finish grit is done...for some reason. I’ve wondered about that one myself.

    Copied from the Lambfoot thread: Achillepattada's post and picture.


    Every great knife need a bespoke suite :)

    @waynorth , to have to choose between all these beauties can be a hell every morning :D

    @Rose and Thistle Custom , it's just a european stag. When I ask for it to my friend Stephane I asked him to polish it very well. Like this it gives a look between the stag and the bone. Stephane added some rings to the rivets not to break the stag .

    Charlie, if I were faced with that decision, I'd simply get a tetrahedral (4-faced) die, assign a number to each knife, and roll the die each morning to tell me which knife to carry that day! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    (But if my "name" was on the tang stamp of two of the knives, I think I could simplify things and just toss a coin each day: "Heads" I carry the ebony lambsfoot, "Tails" I carry the jigged bone lambsfoot! :D)

    Use the cocobolo Charlie. It has such a beautiful vintage look, like the knives from the steamship Arabia.

    I haven't seen rivets done that way before, really like it.
    I'm working on stag covers for a Proper right now, not enjoying it but think I do want to do some from caribou and take it down past the texture to a high polish like the Scandinavians do.
