    A few weeks ago I ordered a rosewood lambsfoot. Today I had time to sit down and put a edge on it so I can being carrying it. The fit and finish really surprised me for the cost. Nice transitions, flush rivets, centered blade. I was kind of surprised at how stout the pull was, but I don’t mine. It’s a beautiful knife I’m proud to own. I hope everyone is enjoying their day.

    The ingredients:
    [​IMG]
    Everyone is familiar with Spam, I suppose. The bread may be a Texas brand. The peanut butter is Laura Scudder's, my favourite: just peanuts and a little salt. No sugar, no corn syrup, no artificial preservatives, etc. And that's a rosewood lambsfoot, front and center.

    [​IMG]
    The Spam was easy to slice with the lambsfoot.

    I spread some peanut butter on each slice of bread.
    [​IMG]
    The peanut butter jar was less than half full, so I had to dig in. Got some peanut butter on the tang and a little in the well near the tang, but it wasn't too hard to clean.

    Fried the Spam in a little butter:

    And the lambsfoot easily cut my sandwich in half:

    Normally I eat potato chips with sandwiches, but I thought a banana would better accompany this meal:
    [​IMG]
    Wasn't sure if I should have milk or beer with this meal, so I opted for Tang, in honour of the Apollo 11 astronauts.

    You should have seen my wife's face when I put the Spam on the peanut butter! She already thinks I'm crazy.

    I must say I have never had this particular combination before, but it was not bad at all. My wife thought I would end up giving most of the sandwich to the dogs, but I ate it all. I probably will not add this meal to my rotation, but I did enjoy it.

    Note: This was a one-off deal. I do not intend to start accepting "culinary challenges"!

    That's all folks!

    Cool pic Jack. :D Never had black rum. :cool:

    Valley Jack is looking smart!

    Thanks PJ. :)

    Beautiful lamb Jon.

    @Prester John - Good job Vince! It really didn't look too bad either. :D

    Hi Donn - Concerning my Morgan motor car...there are more than you think because they were imported over many decades. Having said that, the Morgan Car Company made few of them and they mostly rotted away (had a wood super structure under the body skins. Mine was a total basket case and I had to replace all the wood, etc. People don't take them out much - garage queens. A pity really. Not very comfortable - like being drug around in a peach crate over a rough road. But, dripping with cool.

    Well done. I'm not a spam fan, but your choice of Laura Scudder's Peanut Butter is a good one. Because there's no sugar in it, it works well with savory foods. I've used it on stir fry. :cool::thumbsup:

    Any way, it couldn't be worse than peanut butter and Marmite. :thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    Making tomato sauce moved the patina along a bit more.

    This is a great post - all of it but when you got to the fried Spam in butter, that's when I said to myself; "That's what I'm talking about!!!!". Want to try something a little different? Make a sandwich with peanut butter and a bit of sweet pickle relish.

    Sweet lambfoot by the way.

    It's been my favourite for decades.
    Thanks. As for the butter, I'm a devotée of Julia Child: butter on everything!

    Not sure if the patina was affected much. Been using the rosewood lambsfoot the most recently.

    The heat definitely effects the amount of eggs they lay. So with some cooler weather I have been getting more eggs! The Hartshead Barlow did a fantastic job of slicing open the feed bags! Then I washed her off and she cut up veggies for my salad!

    Fantastic, Vince! Not only did you keep your word, you made a delightful post of it as well.

    I'm a fan Julia Child. I don't know whether she carried a pocket knife, but I'd wager she would have appreciated a good sharp lambsfoot.

    Looking good!

    Now that's a quality quartet of very handsome knives! :thumbsup:
