    Thanks, Dennis. Nice shot of yours on the rocks (pun intended)!

    (I may have a shot on the rocks myself when I get home--maybe a double!)

    Good afternoon guardians! I've been spending most of my free time this past week polishing the stag on a lambfoot I picked up last year. I have mixed feelings with the Pere David stag and I must admit, I like this knife a lot better with its new shine. Probably sacrilege, but oh well.... :D

    Only have the mark side done so far.... pile side next then a good sharpening.

    Vince, I actually thought about my BladeForums friends from Texas for that very reason! ;):thumbsup:

    Thanks Dennis! I didn’t make it to the Tomb on this trip. :)

    Thank you, fellas! Jack, I've done a bit with no success but to be fair, my gear is in pretty sorry shape. I met up with another forum member when I was in Denver several weeks ago and he took me to do some fly fishing, showing me some techniques and equipment that I think will serve very well in my creek. The gear will be a Christmas present to my kids as well as myself.

    I am getting ready to head out to a brew pub that I just discovered, a place that only crafts Braggot style brews. I am pretty excited to check it out.

    That looks great to me. Maybe even as good as the smooth white bone Lambsfoot I've been dreaming of.
    What did you use, sandpaper?
  13. draggat

    Thanks! Yes, sandpaper. I didn't want to remove too much so I started with 150 then moved to 220, 400, 1000, 1500 then rubbed it down with flitz which really made it shine.

    I wanted to keep the contours of the stag so I rolled the paper into tubes to follow the grooves but if you have a relatively smooth handle you could do away with most of the grooves. Going around the pins was slow because I didn't want to sand them off. They look cleaner in hand than in the photo.

    I've never handled polished stag before but it doesn't quite feel like bone. It's more akin to ivory. I actually really like it myself.

    I have a polished deer antler point handle on a Spanish navaja, which I love. Polished stag is a great handle. (Can't post a pic in this thread, though.)

    I do like the way you kept the contours of the stag. I'll bet it feels like a worry stone. :cool::thumbsup: I may have to pick up a small pere david one of these days and give it a try.

    Looks like that one has been getting plenty of use Dennis :) :thumbsup:

    Nice catch Mr Pink ;) Joseph Rodgers may well be the world's most famous historic cutlery company, so you won't have difficulty finding info on the firm. Here's a good start :thumbsup:

    The Brothers look good Ron :D :thumbsup:

    Two great posts Ron :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D :thumbsup:

    Here's a pic of my horn Big 'Un with a bucket ;)


    Here's the bucket :D It was used for pouring molten steel :thumbsup:

    Another great post Ron, I'm glad you and Linus made it back to Tennessee OK :) :thumbsup:

    It's talked to folks in Europe, who had it the same when their national currency was changed to the Euro - a convenient excuse to double prices overnight o_O

    It's a spot called Paul's Pond Dennis, and I'd love to go fishing there :) When I was a kid, water pollution was so bad here, I had to travel 2 counties away to fish, now I see people pulling out fish out of virtually every river, lake, and water-hole I come across :) :thumbsup:

    Great pic my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Nice work :thumbsup:

    That sounds like a nice meet-up Dylan :) Hope the new gear makes a difference, it sure would be nice to be able to wet a line from your 'back yard' :) Hope you had a great time at the brewery too, that's a quality pic my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians, it's Friday! :) I didn't get to drink much of my beer last night, I was so tired that I fell asleep early, and slept like a log :rolleyes: Cold, windy, and raining hard today, so if it doesn't clear up, I think I'm going to find some stuff to do in the house. Unfortunately, the weather forecast for Saturday is even worse o_O Hope the rest of you are basking in pleasant sunshine, and that you have a great Friday, and an even better weekend ;) :thumbsup:

    Carrying my ebony Big 'Un today :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the tips, Vince.:thumbsup: I will keep an eye out for a vintage safety razor. I do remember trying out my Dad's Aqua-Velva as a boy learning to shave.;)

    Thanks for the nice words, Dennis. Smoke and prayers up for you, @waynorth , @Modoc ED and anyone else dealing with any medical issues currently.

    @Half/Stop -Ron, great photos of Linus and the cedar bucket as well as the DC area.:thumbsup: I can understand your hesitancy and hope you are feeling better, my friend! Good luck with the new phone, that can be a real pain to deal with.

    Great pic, Jack! That is the one I want to pick up, an Ebony Big-un. Quite a shame things went south with Wrights.:thumbsdown: Hope you have a warmer Friday;) and a great weekend!:thumbsup:
