    Thanks Preston, that's a great pic :) One day we'll fill the world! ;) :D :thumbsup:

    Fantastic pic Dave, what lovely colours :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much Mark :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks again my friend, I thought I better go and take a pic straightaway, otherwise I'll forget! :D I also realised I hadn't yet taken a photo of the pile-side yet! :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    That's a smashing pic Mark :) :thumbsup:

    According to my phone pedometer, I walked six miles in mine around Sheffield yesterday :thumbsup:

    That's frustrating John (been there) :( Great pic though :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Let me know if you're struggling too much Paul, and I'll swap you one with a softer pull :thumbsup: If you check out the index, there's also a good post by @Cambertree on the subject of softening a pull :thumbsup:

    There's no doubt that Wright's could match their stag better :rolleyes: I know some folks have had good results with potassium permagenate :thumbsup:

    I'm even more impressed now Glenn! That was in bad shape! :eek: Great rescue, did you jig the bone yourself? :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians hope your well.
    Yep like Jack says I had the pleasure of meeting up with this fine gentleman yesterday in the city of Sheffield to collect my Hartshead Barlow in person. I know a few folk on here have also met Jack, but let me say you couldn't possibly hope to meet a more decent, generous and interesting person. :):thumbsup: His knowledge of the Sheffield cutlery industry, and the history of Sheffield in general must surely be unrivaled, and he showed me buildings I'd walked past dozens of times previously which I hadn't a clue had been were major players in the industry had at one time been based. His stories of the industry are fascinating especially the antics of the "Saw and Machinists Union" :eek: (I hope I've remembered that correctly), and of the pubs we also visited. :thumbsup:
    Jack, I'm glad you liked the care package! :D I expect to see you wearing those natty red and yellow colours come November :D.
    I'll do a proper post later as my morning has suddenly turned busy and Imgur isn't playing at the mo. :rolleyes:

    Anyway many thanks Jack for making the journey to deliver the Hartshead and for a great day out in general. :thumbsup: I've just briefly seen another post and apparently we walked 6 miles! :cool:

    Thank you my friend! :)

    Thanks Jack! I do too! :D

    Great stag Jack! The pile side seems to match the mark side quite well! :thumbsup: I’m glad you and David @donn were able to have a good visit! :cool: :D

    Ebony and Rosewood for Wednesday! ;) Y’all have a great day! :D

    Thank you GT.

    Thank you my friend for your thoughtful comments. :)

    Beautiful pic with the old lock.

    Thanks Jack. A very well written and quite comprehensive work on the subject. You would enjoy it.

    I always love your pics with the gorgeous colors in them Dave.


    Have a great day all. IMG_3796.jpeg

    I'm flattered David, the pleasure was mine, it was fantastic to spend some time with you :) Thank you for crossing over the hill my friend, I have that date in my diary ;) :D :thumbsup:

    That's good to hear David, I hope it's just a short-term thing :) Nice pic :) :thumbsup:

    Great black n tan pairing Ron :) The matching isn't bad is it? I'm not entirely sure Wright's understand the notion in the way we might here, I have several of their knives where I prefer the stag on the pile side, but then others may have different taste in stag to me. The stag on that random pick matches better than on the fancy one I was gifted though, lovely as it is :) I don't really have a problem with it of course, as I am perfectly happy to have different types of stag on either side, so long as they both have some character :thumbsup:

    No, I don't have time to jig my own bone presently. But I had some nice new-old-stock bone in my stash that worked nicely. Thanks!

    Thank you, Harvey. :)
    My dog's name is Jack. My kid made that step stone with his name and paw print for me.

    Thank you, Dennis. :)

    I believe Luke draws his Force powers from the Lambsfoot. :D

    Thanks, Dennis. :)
    I think it's the other way around... My robot is protecting my Lamb from Skynet. That's the way Jack reprogrammed him. :D

    It's a Jack, given to me by Jack, resting on Jack. It's a Jack Jack Jack. :D

    The Ramones definitely count!!! :cool: :thumbsup:

    Thank you, Jack.. :)

    Six miles is a nice stroll for you. It would be a major hike for me. :D

    Can't get mad though... Family First! ;)

    Thanks, Jack. Even though I didn't get to fish, it was still a nice morning with family and mountains. :cool: :thumbsup:
    I drove by an old fishing hole, hoping to get out and stretch our legs. I wanted to take some Lambsfoot pictures down by the river. However, the powers-that-be decided to put up guard rails and took away all the parking space. :mad:

    I shot that one fresh for you yesterday. :D
