    Thanks, Greg. This is very similar to the 2019 ironwood Guardians; not as fancy a bolster, and not quite as pretty, but rosewood has a great feel in the hand. Easy to grip.

    From your GAW; Taylor sent it my way. I believe you said it was a limited edition, and I think it is African rosewood. Whatever it is, I love it.

    After my lamentations about gifting my lone lamb away, and being sure I would not land any of Charlie's SFO, the universe smiled on me. I'm smitten. Aside from a faint right half of the etch on the jigged bone (a minor issue since I probably was going to make that a user anyways), these are damn near flawless. I can just barely pinch open the ebony, but the nick is in the perfect spot for me to easily open both (can't remember if it was this thread or somewhere else where someone asked about pinchability). After being relatively new to the traditional world 18 months ago, I can say the lambsfoot pattern is one of my faves, if not my fave.

    Well done on these @waynorth.

    Hey there, congratulations :) That was the other thread where there was the talk about pinchability. I guess it's one of those subjective things like pull strength judging from what was being said there. I'm a middle-aged man with arthritis and soft hands, but I can pinch open all my Lambsfoot knives, figure I've been doing it a long time :) On some it's easier than others of course, but it's not hard on any of them. You have more blade to pinch with a candle-end frame (even though I generally prefer Swaybacks), and a big nail-nick will give you some friction. The big blades usually give more leverage, making them easier to open, and most blades get easier to open after a bit of oiling and use :) :thumbsup:

    Absolutely. I always think similar thoughts when people report a pull of a 6/10. Use it and it gets easier to open!

    I also have to say compared to recent GEC offerings, I was pleasantly surprised to how few filings came out after hitting the pivot with some tuf-glide. Barely any for my two. I also fear that these have spurred me to use the rest of the workday eyeing other lambsfoots to purchase. I fear for my wallet.

    Once upon a time in America, giving two weeks notice, on both sides, was the civilized expected thing to do. Today, we live in a “hire at will” work ethic. You did what you had to do and that’s a good thing.

    @Prester John Vince, that’s a rugged good look at your Lamb.

    @Jack Black Cool table shot of your Stag Barlow.

    @Fixall Here’s to your quick recovery.

    @Fodderwing A sweet three headed monster Barlow Fest.

    Now you’ve redeemed your Apple Mishap.:)

    @JohnDF John...It looks like Dwight got to you.:eek:

    @WhittlinAway A nice look at your Rosewood Barlow.

    Good Afternoon Guardians. Thank you kindly Barry. Signed, Grateful.

    Hahaha! For every healthy morsel I eat, several pounds of "delicious decadent delicacies" are scarfed. :( :rolleyes: :) :D

    That is a fine specimen of ebony lambsfoot Harvey! Glad to see you landed one!
