    Bam-Ba- Lamb! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Killer Damascus snakewood, Taylor! :cool::cool::thumbsup: (I wonder if they have any venomous snakes in Syria? :rolleyes:)

    Good information, ED. :thumbsup::thumbsup: Why is it called the "presentation side" of the knife? Is it historically the way knives were displayed in stores?

    Nor can "kids today" use a slide rule! :rolleyes:
    BJ.mark.sliderule.right.jpg
    Dennis, I AM thankful NOT to see you dancing :eek:, and also thankful for the opportunity to see your stag HHB with the cap! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Time for today's installment featuring the jigged bone Waynorth lambsfoot! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:
    Two examples are sufficient today.

    Your DI lambsfoot is Definitely Intriguing, Dennis! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: (What do you think of driftwood covers for a lambsfoot??)

    Good examples, Jack. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: I still find that first horn example mesmerizing, and wish we'd see the pile side of your Guardians Horn lambsfoot more frequently! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Handsome and Helpful I*XL, @Reaper AL! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I understand your preference for darker stag, José, but I think your fancy left-handed model has a subtle mix of many colors that's quite striking! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Exemplary edge, Jer! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Timely photo of your stag HHB, David! ;):cool::cool: I'm not familiar with moon geography, but is the knife pointing out the landing zone of the first moon landing 50 years ago?

    Bill, I've always found that folks here are not only knowledgeable, but also generous and kind in answering questions. :):thumbsup::thumbsup: (My username indicates that I came here with 5000 Questions. :rolleyes:)

    Fantastic photo of that stellar stag HHB! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Impressive ironwood pic, Dwight! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I hope the knife is wearing his summer weight pinstripes in this hot spell! ;)

    Thanks for the kind words, Mark :), and for posting the pic of your distinguished ironwood! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    I'll bet it's a hotsy-totsy honeymoon, John! :cool::cool:;)

    That lambsfoot friction folder is a surprising treat, Harvey! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Are you picking up new lambsfoot examples every other day, or do you have a vast collection you've built over decades?!? :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Cool pic of your stag HHB and another cool Guardians cap, Barry! :thumbsup::cool::cool: How many different color caps did you get?

    Thanks for your encouragement to me (and so many others), John! :)

    There's a phrase I'm sure I've neither uttered nor written! :p:thumbsup::thumbsup: Maybe I'll use it in my next argument with my wife; it seems quite versatile, and could be used in a conciliatory way, or used to add fuel to the fire! :D:rolleyes:

    Dave, I can't help but note 'em,
    Those sightings of Totem!! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Jack. :) Good to see pics of some of your vintage lambs! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Valley Jack is here for his last day of his turn as Lambsfoot of the Week for me:

    It's been fun comparing it to my other Lambsfoot knives.
    The same in so many ways, yet different in so many others. :cool::thumbsup:
    I think I've come to the (early) conclusion that the Waynorth is a good EDC, being so slender in the pocket and having a thin and slicey blade. The Wright's is a more robust worker, with stouter tip, broader handle, and gator-like spring strength... almost feels like I can pry up a manhole cover with it.

    Goodbye Valley Jack, enjoy your well-earned rest. :)

    Thank you GT. I started collecting Lambsfoot knives at the end of last year, up til now. Being a history of all things fan, I gravitated toward the vintage Lambsfoot knives. I’ve slowed down and have been increasingly become more selective.

    Looks like Valley Jack has had a good week. Hope to see him in the near future. Have a good week.

    Yes the 308 is great in North America! This caliber has definitely taken enough game here. I would be confident with this caliber with almost any animal maybe besides a big grizzly bear or moose which I won't be hunting anytime soon.

    A chess board?! That's alorra snuff! :D

    What a lovely looking motor! There can't be many of them in North America can there? And the lambsfoot ain't to shabby either. :D:thumbsup:

    LOL! I suspect your absolutely right. :thumbsup:

    Nice to see Valley Jack lapping up the sun. Been overcast and dull round me today.
    Oh and yes according to Wiki' 'Eagle' touched down approximately where the tip of the lambsfoot is resting. I know it was the Sea of Tranquility, but that's actually a big place so I did a search and Wiki' says it's roughly there. :thumbsup:

    Just sticking Friday just gone in 'cos I like the picture. Sarah Hughes Mild. Pint of. :thumbsup: Yum Yum. :cool:

    Thanks Dave :) :thumbsup:

    Three bags I believe ;) :thumbsup:

    Since this seems to be an ongoing thing, do you think it might be possible to consider the selection of an alternative title for this installment GT? As was pointed out to me when I first started posting here, some of our younger members like to read through the posts with their kids, and if that is the case, I doubt they'd be comfortable explaining the meaning of all of that sentence to their youngsters. I know that I wouldn't. Just a thought, it did occur to me last week :thumbsup:

    Thanks Gary :) I really should take more pile side shots of all my knives, it's habit more than anything :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Very good GT! :D :thumbsup:

    Thank you my friend, and it's nice to see Valley Jack take a bow :) :thumbsup:

    :cool: :thumbsup:

    Yes, and since it was 19th century snuff, heaven knows what was in that box! :eek:

    Nice pic David :thumbsup:

    I think I may just have found the cure for insomnia! :eek: o_O :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:
