    Ongoing planning:
    Back Label:


    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.

    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.

    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. :cool:

    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. :thumbsdown: one month of eye drops could be a new knife :(

    Hopefully more to come later, but if not, have a great night Guardians!

    It's pretty obvious that you've been putting in a lot of work with the Physical Terrorist. Grats and keep on keepin' on.
