I like to cause problems!
If someone steals from me.... we got a problem.
After a prodigious study of antique cutlery we feel we have developed the perfect handle for a Lamb Foot Knife. It comes to hand well to do the work required of it.
The Lamb Foot blade has a straight, easily sharpened edge with a tapered configuration, giving exquisite reach.
The tip is sharp yet reinforced, so not prone to breakage like a more tapered blade. Its gradual slope makes it unobtrusive in the pocket.
This blade is a favourite of gardeners and those engaged in animal husbandry throughout the United Kingdom. After hundreds of years it is time for this knife to come into the
American lexicon like other Sheffield designs before it.
So here we have the first American-produced Lamb Foot Knife.
With a tip of the hat to the highly evolved Joseph Rodgers Cutlery Company of a century ago, and a stroke of genius from a certain local cutler, we have an ancient knife for the current age.
Remember to oil the joints and keep your knife sharp and wiped.
Thanks for your support of this old pattern.

That touches all the bases Charlie! Well done!
So excited Charlie can't wait!
While in Rome, I got short changed at a restaurant near the Vatican. When I went back and called them on it; they gave me the correct change. I am sure that it was deliberate as I got no resistance at all when I called them on it.
Looking forward to seeing the product of your labors, Charlie. The previous response was to the HS reunion-gambling ship thread.
@5K Qs : To answer your question : I do in fact believe my Eye Witness knives are very reliable .
Cant wait for the 93 lamb foot Charlie!
Great to see you home and posting Charlie . Your Lambfoot covers are looking very nice and I know that the rest of it will be as well .
I know that it has taken a while to get this done . All I can say is : Finally
Thanks GT. However... YOU are the Wordsmith, The Ayatollah of Alliteration, The Prince of the Power of the Pen... The Illustrious Potentate of Parody... and all this while cleverly disguised as a mild-mannered math professor...
@waynorth - That's music to the choir Charlie! In more ways than one my friend!
Simply perfect as the your Lambsfoot will be, Charlie. I saw an image of the jigged bone hafts, and my first thought was that it looked as someone in Sheffield, a long time ago, did the jigging. To your good health.
True that Harvey! I saw those slabs and thought the same thing. They look like old Sheffield.
Couldn't agree with you more, Dwight. Always a delight to read GT's posts.
Thanks Jack, it's good to be back. Trying to keep up! BTW, those Hartshead Barlows are amazing!
Thanks! I'm sure yours will be excellent as well! I actually have another one of the 'same' knife. I put that in quotes because when it comes to stag, none are quite the same. These two actually feel very different in hand. Can't wait to see yours! Both of mine were luck of the draw so to speak.
Thanks! Barely able to get through this one post!!
Sorry to hear about your eye problems. I have glaucoma too. one month of eye drops could be a new knife
Hopefully more to come later, but if not, have a great night Guardians!
Thanks Gary. You and your college roommate have good taste in music.
Taylor is tellin the truth! It was only 103* today, a little cooler than yesterday.
I had the 2018 Guardian's Lambsfoot in my pocket today when I quit my job.
Now I'm like ^
Well if you quit your job and your dancing about it... then I'm dancing with you!!!
It was a tad warm today huh @flatblackcapo
Thank you, Dwight.....Do you know this one?
It is GREAT to see your post and even better to know that you have recovered enough to give us this update.
Really looking forward to it!
It's pretty obvious that you've been putting in a lot of work with the Physical Terrorist. Grats and keep on keepin' on.
