    Haha, yeah, I'm really not good at keeping things pristine. I don't have any non-users... but I got pretty close with this new one, actually... held off cutting anything with it for a full 4 days before I couldn't take it anymore. Funny cause I specifically intended to not use it when I bought it...

    It's all your fault Jack. :p I'm certain you are single-handedly responsible for doubling, tripling (or even more :eek:) the number of lambsfoot knives in this country. :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black - In this description, what does 31.25 mean? Is it the Model Number or what?

    A Wright 31.25 Buffalo Lambfoot folding pocket knife, Carbon

    Dagnabit, r8shell, here I was thinking my collection was as complete as I want it to be and then you have to go and tempt me into dreaming of an addition! ;)

    It LOOKS like a more current build to me, but who knows?? The composite isn't very beat up, and the blade is overall pretty clean.

    @Jack Black - I hear you, Jack. One time I had a hankering for wedding cake. Bought one, sliced and placed it in the freezer. Took a whole year to finish. There’s just something about vanilla buttercream frosting from a bakery that speaks to me.:)

    @JohnDF Thank you John.

    Another fond perspective.

    Welcome to The Guardians :) :thumbsup:

    Nice pic of your flock Rachel :thumbsup:

    Not that I'd get any thanks for it in Sheffield! :rolleyes: ;) :thumbsup:

    Where is the description from Ed/ Wright's have a very confusing catalogue system, (and most of their dealers are pretty clueless too), but I guess that is their Model 31 1/4, the smallest Lambsfoot they do :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    :D :thumbsup:

    They have made that model for decades, but haven't routinely used the 'Real Lambfoot' etch for some time. It could just have not seen much use Glenn :thumbsup:

    The things we will do to get a Lambsfoot pic, haha!
    Fantastic shot, Jack.


    Why does this thread always make me hungry?
    Thanks for the most enjoyable post, Dylan. :thumbsup:



    Very nice shot, Dwight.

    You are right, can you imagine the damage that could occur if the HHB fell off at the speeds that could be obtained by that thing?! :eek: I was actually a little scared that it would slip and fall while I was carrying it to the street....and that I might be run over while taking Lambsfoot pics. :D
    The mark side of Valley Jack looks like a river running though the valley floor.....Well, to me anyway. :D

    Funny how this pattern grabs ya!
    Btw, I agree with @kamagong , it's all Jack's fault. :D:thumbsup:

    Thanks Jack. That makes sense. Yes, it's from a dealer. I believe it's a small one as the blade is described as 6.5cm. Anyway, we'll see next week when it gets here. It has Buffalo Horn covers.

    Thanks to Chin's generous expertise, I have modified my Hartshead Barlow pile side to be more of a match with the mark cover. Potassium permangate dissolved in water and painted onto the cover with a Q-tip: dab, wait 30 seconds, wipe off and wait a couple minutes for the purple to turn tan brown. Repeat until the color you want is achieved. I like it, very much.

    Mark side:

    Thanks!
    It's not as pretty as my ironwood, but it has a great texture. The ironwood is a little slick.
    Ironwood sure is beautiful. The pic was taken on a cast iron comal, which is used to cook tortillas on.

    That's what I was thinking!

    Thanks my friend! :D :thumbsup:

    I hope you get a good one Ed, most of the UK dealers aren't up to much I'm afraid :( Looking forward to seeing it, and seeing what you think of it anyway :) :thumbsup:

    Definitely not :) Nice pic Dave :) :thumbsup:

    Great work Jeff :) :thumbsup:

    That's pretty cool Vince :) :thumbsup:

    I'll down to the market early tomorrow, and I think Lucy is due a day out and about ;) :thumbsup:
