    Great knife. Got mine as a gift from Taylor in Jack's last GAW. One of my favorites, and maybe my most used of four lambsfoots. Real easy to hold and use.

    So true. It's very slim next to my Ironwood and downright skinny next to my stag. :D

    I didn't visit this thread Monday and most of Tuesday (at least not to read new posts), so of course I fell behind. But worse, I've kind of "lost the thread" of various ongoing conversations/discussions here, so that when I simply tried to pick up where I left off, many posts seemed somewhat meaning less to me because I had no context. Live and learn! :rolleyes:
    So I've gone to my default desperate catch-up strategy of trying to limit myself to responding to or commenting on one post per page as much as possible.

    Dennis, as a veteran multi quoter, I'm incredibly impressed by how many posts you can quote in a single message! I always seem to overshoot the 10K characters/post limit with my multi quotes. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    I also liked the catch-up strategy you described, and may have to try that out myself sometime (although I'll probably stubbornly stick to my personal rule to never use the Like button :rolleyes:).

    Cool photo, Dennis! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Always a treat to see your scarred blond horn lambsfoot.

    Splendid sunny pic of your superbly-grained ironwood lambsfoot, José! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Love the light in that 2019 Guardians shot, Mark! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    OK, I'm going to collect together a bunch of shots of the Waynorth jigged bone lambsfoot here! :eek::rolleyes::D
    End of today's installment.

    Thanks for sharing some of your sharpening opinions and experiences, Jack! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Dylan, thanks for sharing your plans about how you intend to handle the heavy traffic in this thread, for telling us how you came to make the jigged bone Waynorth Cutlery lambsfoot your regular user, and for answering the question, "Dylan, how does your garden grow?" ;):thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Cool photo, FBC, and I'm sure your stag HHB is securely lashed to the car, but you really ought to invest in one of those lambsfoot roof racks! :thumbsup::D:D

    That looks like a champ, Ben! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    It's working, Vince! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the interesting and detailed report, Greg. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I'm not an experienced chicken butcher, so I found the report intriguing and informative (although I did NOT buy any whole chickens when I got groceries this morning :rolleyes:). I'm not responding in real time, so you may have answered this already, but which lambsfoot did you use?

    Lambsfoot knives bring a lot of vivid color into our lives, don't they? ;):cool::cool:

    Looking forward to hearing the results of your PB & Spam experiment, Vince! ;):thumbsup::cool: FWIW, I like onions, mustard, and pepper rings with Spam, and I like honey, jam, and/or bananas with peanut butter. I'd recommend any or all of those as condiments for your experiment!

    Yesterday, Valley Jack showed off the pile side for which he's named; today it's mark side's turn (looks better than I remember :eek::D:thumbsup:):

    @mitch4ging Thank you Dennis. Your Sambar HH Barlow is a future classic vintage Lambsfoot. Fits right in with the other vintage objects.

    @Jack Black - Jack, you must get so tired of being surrounded by all that Heaven on Earth beautiful surroundings...Not:)... Then add your sweet Barlow. Perfect.

    Good Morning Guardians.

    That all sounds good to me, Gary, but this first (last?) Spam & PB sandwich will have nothing added, although I will fry the Spam in butter. It will probably be on Sunday. Thinking of making bouillabaise on Saturday.
    Lovely pic of the ironwood.

    Here's one of mine:

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, GT. You're the first to ask: it was my trusty buffalo horn lambsfoot. I'd originally thought of using my rosewood, since it happened to be in my pocket, but the handles are porous and I thought better of it for sanitary reasons. Fortunately the buffalo horn one is always ready, willing, and able to be put work. It was treated to a spa treatment afterwards: a good thorough cleaning, conditioning of the horn with my homemade mineral oil and beeswax wood balm, and oiling of the joint. It's about due for a touch of up the edge, but that'll come at another time.

    That's a great picture of Valley Jack!

    You folks are quite the enablers, aren't you? These just in...


    Not sure I'll keep the composite covers forever, but they are a nice addition to my tiny flock. This is quite addicting!

    There's a lot to be said for those rosewood knives I think :) :thumbsup:

    Always a pleasure to read your posts Gary :) Thanks for the kind words, I'm afraid I have no great knowledge when it comes to sharpening. That's a fine pic of your Valley Jack :) :thumbsup:

    I don't think I'd get tired of living near your local bakery Harvey! :D That photo has my mouth watering! :D :thumbsup:

    We need to change your name to "Randy". ;)

    SWEET picture. :D

    I'm sitting on the porch. I've ran and extension cord to my computer, my wife is bringing me meals as I refuse to come inside... :D

    Nice additions. I'm sure at least one of those covers is on borrowed time. ;)

    Okay, I don't have a "REAL LAMBFOOT" as noted by the plain blade, but awesome none the less. Ebony is nice.

    It is addicting, isn't it? I'll bet you could come up with some fine looking re-covers for those.
    Is the A.Wrights a current production? I've never seen the "real lamb foot" etch on a composite covered knife.
