    Hey, alright, we made it!!!
    Congratulations to Jack and all the Guardians for 1,000 pages of Lambsfoot knife goodness.
    Dave @Horsewright has me thinking of getting back into the leather business, so here's my Lamb with some of my old carving.

    Blimey! I only went in the kitchen to take a pic, and I nearly missed it! :D Thank you to everyone who has got us here, it has been very rewarding to see the enthusiasm for this uniquely versatile pattern grow, and for it to become accepted and talked about beyond this thread :) Well done Guardians :thumbsup:

    Nice to see your button Rachel :thumbsup: Do you folks say button or pin, they're badges here? :confused:

    Doesn't it just Dylan?! :rolleyes: I have to say though, that after spending a few hours writing about Lambsfoot knives and cutlery history here, the last thing I feel like is writing about it for my bread and butter, nor anything else for that matter! o_O

    What a wonderful collection Dylan, it's funny to think that just a few years ago, you just couldn't have accumulated a collection of Lambsfoot knives like that :) :thumbsup:

    Looking good Jody :) :thumbsup:

    What a terrific threesome Barry, that horn looks nice and glossy :) What dirt did you have on Charlie anyway?! :D ;) :thumbsup: Mr @waynorth should be here anyway :) :thumbsup:

    :cool: :thumbsup:

    Fantastic stuff Dylan :) Slainte :thumbsup:

    Cool pic Jose :cool: :thumbsup:

    That's beautiful work John :thumbsup:

    GREAT pic of a GREAT REEL (and of the creel, also) :thumbsup:. I've caught a lot of trout with that same model. I think it's one of the best spinning reels ever made. :cool: GRATS!

    Nice pic, Rache - tried to put your latest cat pic, but I did something wrong and can't figure out how to fix it :oops:

    Great info and pics a usual, Jack. Thank you:thumbsup:

    Very nice :cool:

    Fantastic pic! :cool:

    Love your pics of that great knife! I enjoyed them very much. Thank you for posting.

    Very nice pic :cool:
    Never had an old Ocean City baitcaster but I know they were very popular which says a lot in the fishing world :thumbsup:

    Good Morning Guardians and CONGRATS, JACK :cool: [​IMG] GREAT PHOTOS today, GRATS TO ALL!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Right, GIVEAWAY! :) Open to anyone who has posted previously in this thread :) Some of you seem to have already pre-empted my idea of asking folks to post pics of their collection of Lambsfoot knives. Post anything else too, and please put 'I'M IN', so I know it's an entry. Include a Guardians button/pin/badge in the pic, and I'll throw your name in the hat twice ;) :thumbsup:

    Here are the prizes:


    I thought some of you folks who missed out on the 2018 Guardians Lambsfoot knife in ebony might like to win one, and there's a limited edition Lambsfoot with African Rosewood covers, and a Big 'Un in that nice horn Wright's had a couple of years back (this is from then, standard production, and the blade is off-centre). So there'll be three winners, first and second names out of the hat get a choice. Hope that all sounds OK (I don't always get things right) :) I'm also going to post a giveaway outside this thread for someone who doesn't yet own an example of this fabulous pattern :) :thumbsup:

    Please enter! :) :thumbsup:


    Edit - Don't forget to post a pic of your Lambsfoot collection to enter :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

    I thought I'd better get one of my characteristic "old news" posts in here before this thread wraps up its first millennium! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Jack, José, and JP, thanks for the informative "train talk" you've all contributed! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for granting my request, Dwight. :) Gorgeous knives!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    :D Thanks, FBC. The Super Hawk frame with seat did provide a nice addition to the living room furniture. :)

    Thanks for the supportive comments, Harvey & Jack.:) Jack, that's quite the "blushing bride" you have there!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Striking photo of your outstanding ironwood lamb, Vince! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    That's a stunner, Ron; congrats!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Sometime I'd enjoy seeing a pic of your entire flock of lambsfoots - you're becoming quite a shepherd! ;)
    Jack, with my "limited vision", I'd never have imagined that a Damascus lambsfoot was even a possibility! :eek::rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Prime pile of pulchritude, Taylor!! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the great shots of what I'll always call your Eye of Sauron lambsfoot, David! ;):thumbsup::cool:

    Sorry to see that your "paradise" was a victim of "progress", Dave, but your pic of what you're moving too makes me think that you shouldn't grieve TOO long! :eek::thumbsup::cool:;) Real estate development seems to be a perpetual game of "leapfrog" with people jumping over one another to get "the best spots". :confused:

    Congrats on all the fine lambsfoots you're acquiring, Barry! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: And you're getting them at a pace that's almost as fast as this thread moves! :eek::rolleyes:

    What a mesmerizing "patina" you've developed on that memorable stag lambsfoot, Dwight!! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Pleasant panoramic picture, Jack!! :thumbsup::cool::cool: My lambsfoot for this week is my ebony lambsfoot, also (see below).

    Great to see Sköll under control, John! :cool::cool::thumbsup:;)

    Great photo, Jer! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I've been challenged lately with rising gracefully from low places (bench around our kitchen table, toilet, etc. :rolleyes:), so I decided last week to start doing some squats while watching the weather forecast on TV each morning when I awake. I did a set of 40 last Wednesday and last Thursday, and then found that simply walking had suddenly become a challenge by Friday! :eek::thumbsdown: Guess I'll have to institute my "thigh-strengthening program" more gradually.

    Yesterday was my last day with my Valley Jack as my weekly lambsfoot representative.

    This week's lambsfoot is my ebony Black Jack:
