That's an interesting observation.
Thanks for the compliment Jack! A “Daily Double” is great any day but it’s Double nice on a Friday! I hope you have a great weekend my friend!
Good morning, Guardians!
Good morning, Guardians!
New tree for Jelly today... same old parking lot, though! Oh well, it's almost the weekend!
Yet another intriguing photo, Dan! Is that some kind of cast iron pipe?
Thanks for the stag compliment, Harvey.
Thanks also for the info about the background in one of your superb pics. So the black is maybe asphalt and the orange is chalk?
Hearty amber ale and ebony lamb, Dylan!
My perception about the two threads is rather garbled since I referred to "average post link" instead of "average post length"; sorry!
Thanks for your stag kindness, too.
Greg, isn't "Wharncliffe" a similar example of an adjective applied to both a specific pattern and a particular blade shape? Here's a link to something @Jack Black once posted regarding the Wharncliffe pattern:
Jack and Vince, those are splendid shots of your stag HHBs!
I like jigged bone lambsfoot knives; thanks, José and Matt!
Man Jack demands more attention (maybe I should change his name to deMand Jack ):
Headed out in a few minutes to our local hospital for a couple more or three biopsies. I'm going to carry my Stag Hartshead Barlow just in case the surgeon forgets to bring his punch/scalpel.
All I've got to say is that they better have a lollipop/sucker for me after the surgery. The last time they were out of them and when they called yesterday to verify my appointment, I let them know in no uncertain terms that I wanted a sucker.
Great picture, Trav. That is a very photogenic knife!
That's a creek in a park in the small town where I work. I should try to get more beach and bayfront pics from the city where I live.
Indeed! Thanks for the counterexample, GT!
'Truly unique' is now downgraded to 'rare example'. At least until it's shown that other examples that I've missed abound.
Take two, they owe you one from last time. Best wishes for your health.
Good idea. I'll get two. Thanks Rachel.
Stick to your guns, ED, make 'em produce a sucker for ya. Prayers for a good biopsy.
Edit - Sorry folks, just reading on my phone, and I missed this page, and GT's reply to Greg's post. I'll edit out my own reply, the less said about that other straight-edge pattern here the better
Hooray, it's officially the weekend down here in Oz and I've caught up on the thread too!
Thanks very much for the comments on my last post, my friends - I'll refrain from taking you all in the Wayback Time Machine, by multiquoting from back then, though.
Nice to see Rachel's smooth white bone suggestion for a future Guardians run getting some traction.
I'd favour camel bone too - I think it tends to be denser and stronger than cattle bone. Might I suggest that steel fittings and liners be considered again in that case? All I can think of when I look at a white bone covered knife with brass pins and liner scales, is how they will eventually be marred by ugly verdigris stains.
It's great to see all the quality contributions from new members recently, as well as the Guardians stalwarts.
Dennis, I hope you're feeling better and you've got things stable again, my friend.
Jeff, I'm glad you had your op, and it seems to have been successful. Heal up well, I'm sure you'll be back to fighting fit in no time.
Dave, please pass along my best wishes to Linda, and that I hope she gets some relief soon.
Fantastic walking sticks, Mark and Jack. Thanks for those links on Diamond Willow and the Loess Hills, Mark - they made for fascinating reading.
Vince, you made me burst out laughing with your Robin Hood style pate smiting comment!
I carry a Lambsfoot because it's a handy, high calibre, cutting companion!
How 'bout you?
Great post and great pic, Chin!
Good Morning Guardians - hope everyone has a great Friday with a wonderful weekend to follow.
For some strange reason, I woke up thinking of that line in The Blues Brothers where they are in Bob's Country Bunker and Belushi asks "What kind of music do you have here, ma'am?" She says "Oh - we have both kinds, Country and Western"
Sending you smoke and best wishes for a good outcome today, Ed. If you can, please show an image of a Lambsfoot with a lolipop(s). A fine image of your Hartshead Barlow.
@5K Qs - Thanks GT. Yes...Simply chalk and park-friendly asphalt. One can never get enough of Man Jack. Trust me.
@Prester John - You live in beautiful surroundings. Perfect for images of your fine Lambsfoot collection, Vince.
@JohnDF - Spot on image of your Lambsfoot.
@CelloDan - Great images.
@Cambertree - G’day Chin. Great ideas.
@Jack Black - Thank you Jack. You are well equipped with your brace of Lambs.
Good Morning Guardians. Here’s to a great weekend for all.
Thank you kindly Vince, it's just a quick post, before I go to sleep. Otherwise I'm afraid I'll wake up tomorrow morning and the Guardians Express will have steamed off over the horizon again!
I've got some serious Lambsfoot slicin', Pie 'n' Pasty eatin', investigative reportage to file with GT and the rest of y'all too.
It's all David's @donn fault!
Quick pic for now:
P.S. Greg - not to get too far OT regarding other patterns, but if I'm not mistaken, the Ettrick is referred to as a blade type as well as a pattern by Sheffield cutlers too.
Ed, I hope things go well with your procedure too.
