    I like rosewood lambsfoot knives; thanks, Dave! :):thumbsup::cool:

    I like ironwood lambsfoot knives; thanks, Mark! :):thumbsup::cool:

    I like ebony lambsfoot knives; thanks, John! :):thumbsup::cool:

    I like Barlow lambsfoot knives; thanks, Ron! :):thumbsup::cool:

    I like horn lambsfoot knives; thanks, Greg! :):thumbsup::cool:

    I like little lambsfoot knives; thanks, Mike! :):thumbsup::cool:
    I hope you like the Foundation trilogy, Mike! :cool::thumbsup:;)

    Your advice regarding the staff sounds familiar, Vince, and made me snort with food in my mouth. :thumbsup::thumbsup::D
    There's no doubt that Jack is the watery king, but your pics are still impressive to a nonresident of Texas who equates "Texas" with "dry", regardless of how unfactual that may be. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, Harvey. :)
    Intriguing photo! :thumbsup::cool::cool: What is the orange/black/crumbly background??:confused:

    I like big lambsfoot knives; thanks, ED! :):thumbsup::cool:

    Great news, Dave; thanks for sharing it here! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thank you, sir. ;):cool::cool: I read that other thread; very impressive work! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for sharing your private potato patina procedure!! ;):thumbsup::cool::cool:

    FBC, Man Jack appreciates your praise of his patina and backspring. :)
    That "Old Black Betty" is performed by Ram Jam makes life even more sweet. (If you haven't seen it, the You Tube video is fine entertainment (I think I posted it here before):
    )
    I can imagine that Jake is quite a teller of tales; comes with the territory when you've got stamped bolsters, I suppose.
    Another thought-provoking car photo! :cool::cool::thumbsup: I'll bet that bug is either underpowered or over-tired! :rolleyes: (Is "over-tired" even a word in this context?? Is over-rubbered any better??)

    I'm guessing accuracy would require not only seasonal adjustments, but also adjustment for position within time zone. I grew up on the western edge of Eastern Time, and I'm sure the sun positions at say 9am were quite different on our Michigan farm and in Times Square! ;)

    Dylan, I'll bet the average post length is higher in this thread than is the case in the Totin' Today thread, which results in my perception that this thread takes longer to keep up with. :eek:;)
    Nice photo of your produce and ebony WCLF! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for your attention, Jack. :)

    I like stag lambsfoot knives; here are the two I have.

    @5K Qs Thank you GT. The background is in the Childrens’ portion of the park where they use chalk to draw on. When you shoot standing up, the surface looks much smoother. I like to get very close, on my knees, to show detail. Those Stag Lambfoot knives of yours makes for a winning pair.

    It struck me the other day that “lambsfoot” refers both to a recognized pattern (i.e., the classic Sheffield Lambsfoot Knife) and to said pattern’s main, or only, blade. So, we routinely talk here about lambsfoot knives and also knives with lambsfoot blades.

    That’s not news to anyone who frequents this thread, but what surprises me is that I haven’t been able to think of any other knives where the exemplar pattern is named after the blade (or vice versa? which came first...?). We don’t tend, e.g., to say “he carried his clip point today” or “she sliced it with her spey” without also, at least implicitly, referring to the pattern, even if it’s just a jack knife.

    Is the lambsfoot truly unique in this regard, or am I just failing to identify other examples?

    Edit: thanks to @5K Qs , @Jack Black , @kamagong, and @Cambertree for providing other examples. No need to derail the thread with others.

    Hi Guardians, I didn't quite get time to catch up and post my carry earlier, so it's mid afternoon here now. Hope everyone's Friday is going well :) I thought I'd treat myself to a Double Lambsfoot Day ;) :thumbsup:
