All thanks to you, Jack.
Great flock, Rachel.
Looks both you and I need to push for ebony next year.
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. I'm certain you are single-handedly responsible for doubling, tripling (or even more ) the number of lambsfoot knives in this country.
Thanks! I guess so. Or jigged bone. Oh, what about smooth white bone!?!
@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!
You'll probably need a blanket if it doesn't arrive until tomorrow.
Just told my kid to run in and grab one for me.
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.
It may not have the etch but it’s definitely Real! Welcome to the Guardians!
R8shell, thats a nice gathering of great looking knives!
@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
Nice pic of your flock Rachel
Not that I'd get any thanks for it in Sheffield!
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
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
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.
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?! 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.
The mark side of Valley Jack looks like a river running though the valley floor.....Well, to me anyway.
Funny how this pattern grabs ya!
Btw, I agree with @kamagong , it's all Jack's fault.
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.
With all the recent excitement, I can’t neglect this one.
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.

Pile side after:
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!
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
Definitely not Nice pic Dave
Great work Jeff
That's pretty cool Vince
I'll down to the market early tomorrow, and I think Lucy is due a day out and about
