    Vince, I've seen your knife in another thread. It is absolutely stunning!

    It actually does make for a nice worry stone. Believe it or not, when I purchased that knife I asked for the gnarliest stag they could find. The chances of you finding a relatively smooth stag handle to sand into a 'smooth white bone' are very good!

    That horn looks like molten lava.... Never seen one quite like it. It's absolutely stunning!! If that was a standard cover choice they wouldn't be able to take my money fast enough!

    I think, once again, that demonstrates the risks involved in ordering these knives sight-unseen, it's a complete lottery, but I'd say that your chances of getting some gnarly stag are close to zero o_O

    Thank you my friend :) Charlie @waynorth has a few nice horn models too, but I had to buy a lot of knives to get some good ones. In the case of this one, I was lucky enough to spot it at the factory while looking round with @herder (that was under the old ownership). I subsequently asked to have horn like this on half of the 2018 Guardians Knives, but I got something completely different. So, once again, as a lone punter, ordering is a complete lottery, and I've had a lot of bad experiences with the horn from this manufacturer, such as it lifting off the scales. Horn can look great, and I think we were lucky to get some good stuff for the 2017 Guardians knives, but personally, I'd steer clear of horn, it's just too much of a gamble, and if you have problems with it, you're likely to be stuck with a knife that you can either get re-covered or put in a drawer :(

    I was watching that 'Made in Britain' show last week and part of it showed the production of Jagger Razors of Sheffield. The Model 301 I think.

    Great shot. You are a true birdman. :thumbsup:

    Great shots. I wish our leaders still thought and spoke like that. :thumbsup:

    That's great work, thanks for showing. I have a Wrights knife that may benefit from similar treatment.

    Crikey that couldn't of been good on the ears.:) Carlisle is the most besieged city in the realm and over the centuries has suffered a lot of damage; including the cathedral, so I wonder if that's something to do with it. The Norman Nave was half destroyed during our civil war so Carlisle cathedral is, AFAIK the only cathedral where the Chancel is longer than the Nave.

    It was my HHB today but it'll be the rosewood in a sec as I need something with a bit more clout with which to make some parsnip soup. :thumbsup:

    Ey up David :) I was thinking of getting a Jagger razor some years back, but was totally put off by their promotional material, which said something like 'Sheffield has been producing cutlery and razors for nearly a hundred years'. With such ignorance of the city's history, I thought they must be some daft Johnny-come-lately's :rolleyes: Nice to know they're made in Sheffield at least (assuming that is the case) :thumbsup:



    Interesting post, as always David :) Enjoy your parsnip soup, and your weekend :thumbsup:

    @mitch4ging - Thank you Dennis. Great looking horn on your Lamb. Hope things are going your way, my friend.

    Wow! Nearly one hundred years! It would take ten times that just to produce whats on your kitchen table :D
    Yeah the programme said Jagger Razors are produced in Sheffield. Some of the machining is done by different companies but their all Sheffield based, though you wouldn't think that when watching that waffling video of theirs. :rolleyes::D
    Parsnip soup enjoyed thanks. Hope your enjoying your Friday.
