    OK, I think I'm less than 2 days behind and gaining on the pack each time I post! :rolleyes::thumbsup:

    Matt, I'm usually opposed to seeing Jelly on the seat of a bench, but I'll make an exception in the case of your exquisite jigged bone WCFL! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Elwood must elevate your spirits, FBC; such a ravishing knife! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: What I really like about the jigging of that model is that it has 2 "levels": a macro level of large jigging forming "finger grooves" perpendicular to the length of the handle, and a micro level of finer, somewhat random jigging running parallel to the handle's length.

    Harvey, if not for my rotation schedule to guide me, I'd rarely say farewell to Cracker Jack, I suspect. :D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Even with no food in the shot, I find that venerable lambsfoot of yours to be perfectly delectable with its triple-rattail bolsters and homemade bread crust bone! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I'm glad you had a good time, José! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: The dermatologist recommends that I should keep my pale skin and blond/gray hair out of the sun after years of enjoying outdoor activities. :( I think the skin on my back is the whitest it's been in more than 60 years! :rolleyes:

    Greg and Dave and Jack, I appreciate your remarks and am glad that you're discovering things about your relationships to knives. :cool::thumbsup::cool: I like my lambsfoot knives very much, and I carry one every day, but I don't think I've drunk enough of the Kool Aid yet to declare that a lambsfoot is all I need or want. :rolleyes:

    I had the same reaction as Rachel did to Greg's wish to resist as long as possible the urge to carry multiple pocket knives! ;):rolleyes: (Although I'd add a word to Rachel's sentence: insert "dozen" between "one" and "pocket". :p)

    Congrats on scoring one of those classy white bone WCLFs, @Travman! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    I agree completely with Jeff that the appeal of jigging is very subjective. :thumbsup::thumbsup: Also, for me, it's not that I like all random jigging better than all regular jigging, for example. Instead, it depends on how a specific jigging example on a particular knife affects me.

    John, it looks to me like the rosewood is currently on top in the rivalry. :rolleyes:

    Mike, my wife tells me that I'm not very adept at picking up and interpreting nonverbal signals, but, based on the photo, I'll go out on a limb and hypothesize that you enjoy that poutine stuff! :D:thumbsup::cool:

    John, I'd be interested in seeing your shuttle lambsfoot next to your African rosewood and/or ironwood lambsfoot for a size comparison.
    I certainly can fit each of my lambsfoot knives into the watch pocket and carry it there comfortably, with the AC leaving the most space, of course. But I usually carry my lambsfoot for the week in the Guardians slip, and that combo definitely requires more pocket space. In practice, I often put "slipped" lambsfoot in the bottom of my RFP, and have a pair of smaller knives in the watch pocket.

    Good decision on giving a lambsfoot a try, @SnailOffTheTrail! :cool::thumbsup::cool:
    But in a specialized thread like this, the topic itself might attract people of a certain "type", and I think it's certainly possible that we could all be nuts! :D:rolleyes:

    Thanks for reminding us of some of the Guardian regulars who have been missing in action lately, Jack; I, too, hope they return soon. :thumbsup::):thumbsup:
    Sweet stag HHB! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    :D:D Incorrigible! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    @dc50 - I am joining hands with the rest of the Guardians in hoping for a good outcome and relief for your wife.

    @OLd_gUY A fine look at your equally fine Waynorth.

    @5K - Thank you GT. Beautiful file work on your Senator, GT.

    @Ramrodmb - That was so nice of you to say those things, Mark. There must have been great joy when Stella was found.

    Good Morning Guardians

    I was never going to show this knife, but John @JohnDF encouraged me to do so. Thank you John.

    Teamed up with my Seiko WN-1(Think Earth Watch).

    :D Thanks GT!

    You've had quite the dazzling array of lambs on display over the last few weeks as well!

    Couldn't agree more, Ron. Wonderful photos today. It always amazes me how each of us uniquely sees the form and function of the Lambsfoot :cool:

    Oh I still have plenty of other want. ;)

    And need, for that matter: my whittling knives still see plenty of use. They just don't ride in my pocket very often anymore.

    I'll admit that I thought you might have a reaction to that statement. :D

    ... and I still find use for a punch and a cap lifter from time to time.

    A harness jack with a lambsfoot main would be an incredible work knife. Or, a split-back whittler with lambsfoot main and punch and cap lifter secondaries would be a fantastic work and after-work knife.

    One can dream... :D

    Thank you very much Neal, I guessed you had posted from your phone (I don't know you manage it) :) I was hoping I might have those catalogue scans in a higher resolution, but sadly not :( :thumbsup:

    Very clever. :cool::thumbsup:

    I know, right? :cool::thumbsup:

    It's a back and forth battle with a slight edge to the Rosewood for being a tough little bugger.

    Very nice! Yours is like the one I sent to Jack, with see-thru acrylic.
    Mine is a little different with a kinda Cracked Ice looking cover and a more detailed shield.
    I sent the other one to Jack because it was the better built of the two, but mine seems a little more unique.

    I still say it... Way Cool A Go Go :cool::thumbsup:

    Here ya go, GT... Space Lamb with Regular Rosewood

    I was struggling to get to the end of my street a few years ago GT. Still can't walk like I used to, but definitely suffering less :) That's a tremendous effort my friend, nice that your daughter was able to join you on vacation, must have seemed like old times :) I enjoyed your ebony review, and it's nice to see that view of Man Jack :thumbsup:

    That's some lovely character :) :thumbsup:

    Cool pic Dave! :D :thumbsup:

    I'm afraid I am yet to find them in the wild here Mark, but they're tasty when I've bought them or had them in restaurants :) :thumbsup:

    Smashing :) :thumbsup:

    Looks like you put a great edge on Tater :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Beautiful composition Mark :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot pal :) Yes, Barry has a great talent, he must have been up all night sewing those caps ;) He very kindly sent me one just like Charlie's :) Sounds like you're keeping busy yourself though! :D Posting here is the highlight of my day :) Excellent pic of your lovely ebony WCLF :thumbsup:

    That's good to hear :) :thumbsup:

    Fantastic pic Vince :) :thumbsup:

    Glad to hear it helped Paul, and hope you're well now my friend. I have to have one at some point, and I can't say I'm looking forward to it o_O :thumbsup:

    Very cool Greg :) :thumbsup:

    Great stuff :) Nice to see a Lambsfoot that's been put to work :) :thumbsup:

    Definitely no evil there Mike ;) :thumbsup:

    Looking good Ed :) :thumbsup:

    Nice pic OG :) :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    I saw a nice Coachman's Knife with a Lambsfoot blade the other week, would that be a pattern to re-create? :) How about this knife from a 1907 Army & Navy catalogue? :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    More fantastic pics Dan :) :thumbsup:

    Interesting to hear about the differences John :) I absolutely love mine :) :thumbsup:
