    Good day to give a Google translator a workout, I think. :p

    Vielen Dank, Harvey. :)

    Muchas gracias, Dennis. :)
    You've got the lambsfoot look locked in! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Merci beaucoup, FBC (although LamBarJack tells me he's ambivalent about being a laughingstock :rolleyes:). :)
    I like multi quotes, but I like photos that can be posted in multithreads even better! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    I name my lambsfoots, but I've NEVER been reminded of fictional characters by my knives! :thumbsup::D

    Evocative ebony, José! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: How are you liking your ebony lambsfoot?

    Glad you gents had a great time together in Sheffield! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    David, your Hartshead stag Barlow looks stellar; congrats!
    Jack, wonderful swag from David, but isn't there a saying something like "Beware Lancastrians bearing gifts"?? ;)

    Jack, your stag HHB looks superb from every perspective! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Shukraan jazilaan, Jack. :)

    Looks like Ron and Dwight are of one mind regarding which lumber lambsfoots to limber up for Wooden Wednesday! ;) Fantastic pics of your rosewood/ebony pairs, guys! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Perspective is everything, Matt! :D:thumbsup:

    That blond horn lambsfoot is a looker, Ben! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Cool outdoor vista, Preston! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: What are the ungulates in the pic - elk?
    I'll bet your stag senator is always in tune!
    When I make two consecutive multi quote posts, it's a challenge to tell where the first one ends and the second one starts. :rolleyes:

    Vince, stag is very subjective, but I sure admire the pile side of your HHB! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:


    To be fair, I don't understand my wife's artsy/craftsy hobbies at all. :eek::confused::rolleyes:
    Nice art work, John, to illustrate that cautionary tale. :thumbsup::cool::D

    Congrats on the splendid stag lambsfoot HHB! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Muito obrigado, Dwight, for your encouraging words. :)
    Glistening ironwood pic! :thumbsup::cool::cool: Do you wet your rock for photographic purposes, or just use whatever the current weather provides?

    Cool to see the lambsfoot that started you on the quest, OG! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Fantastic fourfold flock, Vince! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Very handsome stag lambsfoot Hartshead Barlow, José! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Union Jack again for me:

    Thank you sir!

    Agreed, John. That is all I have worn for about a dozen years now. High quality, long lasting shoe. I typically wear down the sole completely before anything else gives out.

    Thanks a lot, Paul!:thumbsup: I hope your thumbs get back to normal soon for you.

    That side reminds me of Cases Bonestag, Jeff. I have wondered the same thing and pondered adding Iodine or Betadine for color. Possibly even mixed with Pot. Perm.?

    Nice photo there.:thumbsup:

    I think you are right Gary in that a little more swell on the pile side aids in a good purchase!
    Great shot of Union Jack and LamBarJack.:thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the nice words Dennis! Much appreciated my friend.:thumbsup:

    Love that photo, Dennis.:thumbsup:

    Very nice, Jose.:thumbsup:

    Thanks for those top shots, Jack! Yours looks nicely symmetrical too. Love the pile side as well. Have yourself a great day, Jack.:thumbsup:

    Thanks for the stropping info. I know there's at least one thread on it over in the maintenance & tinkering forum. It seems there are different ways of doing it: slack or stiff backed, leather or balsa wood, loaded or not, etc. I'll just have to sit myself down and practice to find what works for me.

    Good morning, Guardians!

    Thanks for the kind words Gary! :D

    Great wood on those two Mark! :thumbsup: :D

    Thanks for answering a question that I’ve been meaning to ask! I thought you might live in a rain forest! ;) Your Stag Damascus candlestick is one of the greats! :thumbsup: :D

    You need more squirrels to clean up after those messy birds. If you like, I would send you some.

    Have a great day, enjoy your meal and safe travels. The HHB makes great company!
    Thanks, Dave
    I have only photographed my HHB, but sure they
    Thanks much, Matt. I do enjoy trying to find interesting ways to take pictures of these wonderful knives, they are photogenic, for sure.
    Nice, capturing the blade and its reflection in the water sure makes for a pleasant and interesting photo.
    Great photo, John, what birds do you have coming in to that feeder? I ask because you can tailor the feed for the type of bird. It's possible to limit the mess that way. Also with that, the type/style of feeder makes a difference. The one shown in your photo allows them to dig and scratch around to get to the seed they want, leaveing th
    Congratulations on your acquisition, you did a wonderful job on that photo. Before reading, I thought the glove was a slip for the knife;)
    Two stellar examples of lambfoot art you have there, congrats!
    Excellent post, like all of yours Chin, great information and photography.

    Ha, Kevin, way back I had a '54 VW, with the split rear window. don't think it had enough HP to get out of it's own way. Only heat was in the summer, defrost was something to scrap the ice off the inside of the windshield! Loved that beetle, one I wish I could have kept!
    As per above statement, excellent info and photos>
    That polished lamb is quite easy to look at.
    Thanks, they are Mule deer, Gary. We do have Whitetail deer in these parts. Only the male/buck have antlers, which they lose in the late fall/early winter. These have their antlers in 'velvet' which will harden and be rubbed off in late summer.
    Nice photo of a great pair, Mark
