    Very well stated John! :thumbsup:

    It’s been a busy Saturday! I’m tired but I did make a rapid scan of all the posts for today! I’ll catch up later in more detail, but I will say that all you Guardians have posted some great photos today! :thumbsup: I’ve had my Waynorth Jigged Bone in my pocket today. It’s really a fantastic knife! :D

    Just remember that we can't have a prolonged discussion on this thread. I will post a few pics with lambsfoot content tomorrow night, but any prolonged discussion will have to be by PM please. Will be using my rosewood lamb:

    You get it now!!!
    I just wanted to be a part of this great community, the Guardians. But once I got a hold of my first Lambsfoot, I understood it too. I don't think there is a better "user" knife out there. :cool::thumbsup:

    Nothing left but their tips! :D

    Smooth ivory white bone is pretty consistent. Just sayin'. :D

    Isn't it a pleasure to use? I always liked the look of a lambsfoot, but didn't really appreciate the ergonomics until I used it in the garden. (more a jungle than a garden, really) ;)

    This is Tacky, she is our strange strange cat. :D
    Lovely pic of your HHB .:thumbsup: At least all that rain you get results in some beautiful lush green country that is a perfect background for your Lambsfoot photos.

    They have been used in the horticulture industry for a long time, now you can see why. Have a good Sunday.:)

    One of you fine folks posted a pic of a similar Lambsfoot a few days ago. I tried looking for it so I could properly quote your post but I couldn't find it, my apologies. Well, it reminded me of my very first Lambsfoot knife that I won in a GAW that was hosted by our good friend @Jack Black . This is the one that started my addiction to this fantastic pattern.

    I can see why it started your addiction. Beautiful scales.

    Hope everyone is having an awesome Saturday!
    I haven't been around in a while and it seems that I missed some amazing things that happened around here. Waynorth Lambsfoot? :eek:
    Hartshead Barlow? :eek::eek:

    I love my little Lamb and wouldn't ever part with it, but I can't help but oggle those lovelies :D

    It looks like the one @Jack Black sent me to get me started. There's no telling where it was made, though I think the build resembles both Sabot and Cudeman.
    I get the feeling they don't mark the country of origin within the EU, perhaps so nobody complains about paying the same price for something that used to be made in an expensive labor country after it's been moved to a cheaper labor country.

    Thanks, Cudgee. This one does have some nice grain on it for a good ol' work knife.
    I put a little wax lube on the handles, by accident at first, and it really brought out the beauty of the handle.

    Dave, once again I say, it's all Jack's fault. ;):D
    I don't think A Wright made this one. It doesn't have a tang stamp and it's stainless. Maybe @Jack Black knows who makes/ made them.

    This one has been passed on to another in the spirit of spreading the word of the mighty Lambsfoot.

    Another pic.

    See how he gets us all hooked?! ;):D

    I think you might be on to something with Sabot and Cudeman resemblance.

    Could it possibly be a Whitby?

    IMG_1317.JPG Hi. My name is Ben. I am a knife-aholic! I can't stop with just one, or two, or three, so ... here, direct from the mother country of Lambfoots is my new A. Wright in ebony! Cheap enough to not worry about patina, pretty enough to be difficult to not keep eyeing it. Fit and finish are in no wise perfect (Wilfred Works it is not), but as a sturdy and elegant tool it just brings a smile to my face!
