    Makes sense.

    I love the way the steel on that knife has aged. When I finally pluck up the courage to use my WC lamb foot I hope it looks that good.

    Hoping to get out for a midweek walk tomorrow, probably only a few miles, but I'm looking forward to it :) Think I'm going to take these two out with me :thumbsup:

    Good afternoon, folks.

    I have had to reevaluate how I approach this thread. With the steaming locomotive that this discussion/community has become, I have had to resign myself to mostly lurking. Those of you who have the time and stamina to quote everyone and offer kind words, you have my respect and gratitude, I honestly do not know how you do it. With that said, if I have missed anything that has been directed towards me, you all have my apologies. I have mostly skimmed over the quote posts, spent more time on the history and picture posts, and used the "like" button somewhat liberally.

    Rather than drop in with a picture now and then, I thought I might use my limited time to make my posts here a bit more meaningful. Taking a page out of Chin's book, so to speak.

    The past several days has seen me with a Waynorth Lamb Foot in my pocket. If any of you recall, I was having some trouble deciding which variant I wanted to make a regular user out of. Ebony is among my very favorite cover materials, it rates up there with good red bone and excellent Stag. However, I have found that with a fine wood clad knife, I am less inclined to toss it in my pocket without some sort of slip. Bone and Stag are materials that, for whatever reason, seem to instill a bit more confidence when it comes to their surface durability. I know that this is perhaps largely in my head but it is this line of thinking that has led me to choose the Jigged Bone version of Charlie's Lamb Foot as my regular user.

    With that decision out of the way, I look forward to how the patina will begin to progress. I am a big fan of steel bolsters and liners and am looking forward to how they darken with use and such.

    Today began pretty much in the same manner it always begins - with copious amounts of good black coffee. It is in the middle of July and we are experiencing unseasonably cool and wet weather. I am not complaining... I hate the heat.

    I mentioned some time ago that I was tending a garden. It continues to grow - and grow - and grow... With my morning coffee, I tend to go inspect the plants, make sure the bugs aren't taking too much of a toll (I don't use chemical pesticides), and pull a few of the larger weeds that might have encroached since the day prior. I haven't tended a garden since I was a kid so it has been very rewarding to see these plants flourish.

    I LOVE fresh tomatoes and I am looking forward to these more than any of the other produce, which includes peppers, zucchini, squash, beans, cucumbers, and cilantro (already harvested). Some people are put off by the smell of tomato plants. I absolutely love it. It is fresh, invigorating, and gives promise of wonderful fruit.

    The beans are the first to be ready, followed closely by the squash and zucchini. All are wonderful in just about anything from stir fries to stews, to grilling, etc.

    Followed by more coffee and a snack. The blade length is superbly useful for apples on this Waynorth.

    I hope you all are having a terrific Monday so far! Not much to complain about on my end, it has been a particularly pleasant morning.

    @Jack Black Sorry about that. I can clearly see that the moments spent with the TEW, were memorable ones.

    @Pàdruig That was an enjoyable post to read. Thank you Dylan.

    A most enjoyable post Dylan, looks like you've got green fingers (as we say here) :) :thumbsup:

    That's great to hear Bill :) :thumbsup:

    Taking this photo was certainly memorable Harvey, I had to sneak through a gate onto a private parking lot, jog across the lot, scramble up a steep bank, and pull myself up on a fence in order to get a shot opposite the TEW works! :eek: :D :thumbsup:

    Gratifying read Dylan I like your (and Chin's) format!! I too can't cover the number of posts fast enough and appreciate the meaningful tales you have posted. I felt like I toured your garden!!
    Happy patinas ahead!!

    Just an FYI; I can't see any of the words in your post. When someone quotes your text, I can see a little bit of faint shadows of the lettering, but can't make out the actual words.
    I am using the Dark format as it is MUCH easier on the eyes. Take as you will.:thumbsup:

    Edit: add pic ;)

    RALF is back in pocket after his three day weekend off. He does look refreshed! I enjoyed some green tea this morning from my Yixing dragon pot.
