    The jigging is wonderful. :cool::thumbsup:

    That doesn't look good. Hope it drops quickly.

    I've never tried it, but it looks delicious. :cool::thumbsup:

    I've yet to try that too, but it's on the list.
    Looks like the etch on your Hartshead is very durable. :cool::thumbsup:

    Good Morning Guardians
    I'm all prepped for work and just enjoying my black coffee with a touch of black Lambsfoot. ;)

    It's very rare I have Beans on Toast at home John, but I always enjoy it as a snack :) Yeah, don't think that etch is going anywhere :) :thumbsup:

    Cool pic my friend, hope work goes OK :)

    With my business meeting cancelled, I'm just catching up with a few chores at home, and sneaking in a little slingshot practice ;) Tried another of those Uniphoxx clamps, but really can't say I'm impressed, second shot with really light ammo and bands o_O

    Edit - Nobody to blame, but me, for that, I'd fitted the clamps wrong o_O

    @Jack Black a way around your clip problem might be to retrofit your fork ends with Spanish attachments. I just use a piece of gutted Paracord and a couple of pieces of bike inner tube then use some dental floss to tie the bands on 1581429806499724318873.jpg Hopefully the picture is clear enough. 1581430040733661579618.jpg
    Home today babysitting, having a cup of coffee after re bedding the chickens with the lambsfoot

    Good morning Guardians!

    My newish ebony is on the rack today for a re-profile. I tried to "tickle" the edge with my Sharpmaker, but it only shined the shoulder of the bevel using the 40 deg (inclusive) side. So, I'm setting the lambfoot's bevel to 20 deg per side.

    Thanks a lot for the info Willie, much appreciated :) Hope you have a good day :thumbsup:

    Nice work my friend :) Mine are mostly 20 degrees per side, but I did re-profile my Rosewood Big 'Un to 15 DPS as an experiment. I'm not sure it made a lot of difference TBH, but I'm minded this one is due some pocket time ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Jack. I like a really sharp blade. It doesn't have to shave, but I like to see and feel it zip open an envelope without any resistance.

    Glad you're staying dry Jack, but boy are you struggling with the Uniphoxx! Those clamps look interesting, but I find better luck with just tying them on. Your HHB looks tasty with your beans on toast snack. Next you'll be showing off some eggs in a hole ;)

    Any time Jack. Have a good one yourself, hopefully you aren't being too badly inconvenienced by the storm.

    Absolutely my friend, nothing worse than a dragging blade o_O :thumbsup:

    Thanks Mike, generally I've found it a very good slingshot, but I think you are right about just tying on the bands. I ordered another set of clamps before the others broke, so I might give them another try :rolleyes: I'm enjoying the Scout LT you sent me, and I've just been shooting into my catch-box with this one :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Willie :) I have to say it hasn't been too bad ;) I'm lucky to have a warm home, a roof in good repair, and plenty of stores in - and some in-house entertainment of course! :D :thumbsup:

    Jack, I'm sorry to say this, but your photo looks like it could have been taken here in Tennessee! Some of the people that live close to some of the streams and tributaries that feed into the Tennessee River system are having a rough time. :(

    Good to see your Rosewood Bigun Jack! :thumbsup: :)

    I'm also carrying my Rosewood Bigun today. :thumbsup: I've not sharpened it in a while. But I used 20deg per side the last time and it's due for a touch up now. Y'all have a good day. :)

    I'm very sorry to hear that Ron :( You have many more big rivers than we do here, and I know that they can present a real danger to life when in flood. Hope everyone is going to be OK my friend :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron, nice to see your Rosewood Big 'Un too :) I often carry mine when I'm out hiking, but I've not been afraid to put my Hartshead Barlow to use, and it's done everything I've asked of it so far :) A shame we never got a Guardians Big 'Un :( :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jack! I have noticed that you’ve not been shy about using your Hartshead Stag! ;) They are most certainly sturdy as well as beautiful knives. I haven’t been able to bring myself to use mine much with the exception of mail duty and such. However, I have never been shy about using my Rosewood Big ‘Un. It’s a real work horse! I would really liked to have been able to get a Guardians Big ‘Un. Maybe Ebony with fluted or lined bolsters. I feel it would have made the series complete. I do fully understand and support the reasons why it’s not going to happen. If I never acquire another, I feel really blessed to have the Lambsfoot collection that I have. Thanks to you Jack and also to Charlie! :thumbsup: :)

    Thank you, Jack. :)
    Work is going great, students are learning, and I haven't pulled all my hair out. ;)

    Sounds way more fun than meetings. :cool::thumbsup:

    @Jack Black - Sounds like you’re well covered in every department, while the rain falls.

    Good Afternoon Guardians.

    I have kind of taken to it Ron! :D Yes, it's a real shame they let us down :( Thanks for the kind words my friend :thumbsup:

    That's good to hear John :D Yeah, it was! :D :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Harvey, it stopped raining for a couple of hours this morning, but it's just started again. The wind is still blowing a bit too o_O That's another great pic buddy :cool: :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians, kind of quiet around here at the moment, I wonder where all the other Guardians are? Hope they're doing OK :thumbsup: Have a good day everyone :) :thumbsup:

    I picked up this old oil-can at the weekend, thought I'd get some use out of it :)
