    Thank you Greg, That’s quite a pack of pickled peppers that you packed. I’ll bet it will be fantastic.

    @waynorth - Thank you Charlie. Your 93 and others are the equal of the oldies.

    I like that in the past, frames were designed to accommodate the rising point of a blade ;) :thumbsup:


    Of course, in this case, someone lost the point! :eek:

    From what I've seen, all old Lambsfoot blades eventually become punches! :eek: :D :thumbsup:


    (Taylor's Eye Witness Lambsfoot now in @r8shell's Home For Worn-Out Old Blades ;) :thumbsup:)

    That's very kind of you Harvey :) You have managed to find some beautiful old knives my friend :) With exceptions, Sheffield cutlery hasn't been what it used to be for a very long time I'm afraid. The exceptions make it worth pursuing I think ;) :thumbsup:

    Wright's don't refer to it as a Pruner Ed (see my earlier and more detailed post). Nice line-up there :) :thumbsup:

    Morning Ed! :D :thumbsup:

    That blade is showing some GREAT character Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    I agree, the scales are clearly bought in :thumbsup:

    +1 :thumbsup: Nice-looking knife, do you know anymore about it? Welcome to The Guardians :) :thumbsup:

    Very handsome OG :) :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black - I did see your earlier and more detailed post Jack but here they do call it a "Pruner".


    I only used the term Pruner to distinguish it from the Standard. Not trying to argue with you at all- just trying to illustrate where I got the term "Pruner".

    EDITED TO ADD: Actually Jack, they say with Pruner Handle and don't call the knife itself a Pruner. So, I may be all wet. Therefore, "Belay My Last". From now on I'll refer to it as a Small Lambfoot.

    I gotta make a sandwich and chew on this.

    You really captured the beauty of that Lambsfoot!
    I'm lovin' the color in the handle.

    As the others said, I think it comes down to personal preference. I love me some Peach Seed Jigging too but as a general rule I like the random of hand jigged bone the best.... it just has more character to it , more soul.

    Looks like you had a great time!
    I'm pretty sure that if I ever defect from the US, poutine will be the reason. ;):D

    Thanks, pal.
    That's a might fine shot of a mighty fine knife right tharrr , I hav'ta say.

    Hope you feel better soon , Jon.
    That Lamb of yours looks like it makes for good company.

    Annnd a good mornin' to you , ED.
    That proud tip problem is yet another reason that I like the Stove Pipe Kick, it gives you a lot to work with.

    Thanks, OG
    That is a fine pic of your Waynorth and I always enjoy your Ansel Adams backgrounds.

    I am hangin' with Jake today.

    I invite you to come back with me almost a week in my catch-up efforts. :rolleyes: I can't respond to everything, so I've taken Vince's advice below to heart, and this post primarily features rosewood lambsfoot knives.

    Sensational shot of your rosewood HHB, FBC! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    That photo really highlights the grain in your rosewood, Jon! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Always a treat to see your rosewood from a different continent, Vince! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Your rosewood HHB is attractive headwear for that carved bear, Dave! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Or are you starting a DIY totem pole there? :p (That red car with the fender skirts is cool, but doesn't have much ground clearance. :rolleyes:)

    Although not relevant to my self-imposed rosewood theme, your pic is really interesting, ED! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    There's the knife with the living luminosity that I always find so amazing!! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    :thumbsup::thumbsup: What more can you ask for, John? :cool::cool:

    Wow, your African rosewood seems to be growing on me, John! :eek:;):rolleyes:

    Can't beat a rosewood blueberry pie, AL!! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Your hard-working rosewood HHB is looking prosperous, Taylor! :):thumbsup::cool: The blade etch is hardly obscured by that patina. :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    My lambsfoot carry this week is Man Jack, the stag senator I won in an @R.c.s GAW. Here's a shot of it soon after its arrival:

    No worries Ed, it's a confusing situation :) Here's a link to one of my previous posts on the subject. To quote from that:


    Thanks mate, that's a good-looking knife you have there :) :thumbsup:

    That one belongs to @r8shell now Harvey, and has done for some years :) :thumbsup:

    I was going to quote a post of mine from 2005, but, well, the BF software changes stink! Again! o_O

    All of us who enjoy this place try our best to abide by the established guidelines and feel it is not too much to ask.
    If you decide to hang around here I think you will find that rude and childish attempts at sarcasm are not appreciated.
    If you decide to not frequent this place that many of us find to be educational and friendly, well don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya on your way out.

    Thank you for letting me know. My attempt at a little humor did not seem to go over well. Friendly? Not so much, but I can take a hint.
