    As I was catching up in the thread today, I realized it's been a little while since a lambsfoot has been carried... Decided to correct that. Ebony big 'un with me now.

    Also have to show off a slingshot that arrived today. Like the lambsfoot it came from Sheffield, and also like the lambsfoot, was a gift from a friend who carved it from an ash fork.

    Hope everyone has a great end to the week and an even better weekend!

    Did it work?

    Those old Niagara Falls Carborundum stones are great, and that's a nice one. Not dished out yet. :thumbsup:

    Wow! Congratulations mate, can't wait to see it :cool: If I remember correctly, Ron used to have a Herbert Robinson, and it was a stunner :) :thumbsup:

    It certainly has! :cool: :) :thumbsup:

    Great to see you here Mike, your Bagpipe Ebony Big 'Un is looking good :) That's a very nicely-made slingshot my friend, how do you find the tab set-up? :thumbsup:

    Not sure, she was a mean old woman, and I think cold germs would have given her a wide berth anyway :rolleyes:

    Good morning Guardians, we've made it through another week! :rolleyes: It doesn't look like a bad day here, and I'll be going out for some exercise, and to pick up a bit of shopping, before it changes its mind ;) Carrying an Old Friend in the form of my 2017 Guardians Lambsfoot :) Have a good day Guardians :thumbsup:

    Jack my friend, I don’t think it will be as good as Ron’s - will have to try and find his one - this one that I just won has the fairly generic Jig Work - poor photos so I don’t really know what the Blade is like but I think it’s pretty good - although it has a wee bit of surface rust in a few places.
    I do like the font of the stamping.
    I will certainly will post it up when I get it. :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you my friend, have a good day yourself :) :thumbsup:

    Here's Ron's wonderful example (a few more links in the thread index), I am looking forward to seeing yours my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Since I've missed most of our National Pie Week, I thought I'd have a Pie Day :) It hasn't got off to a good start though, look at the state of this apple pie I bought (boxed) at the supermarket, it isn't even baked properly :mad:

    Thanks Jack. My first and only Big 'Un, and it couldn't be better. I almost want to call it a lambsword compared to the little ones ;)

    The slingshot is pretty neat. The tabs take some getting used to, but they're a great way to attach the tubes, and definitely reduce wear for a longer band life.

    Shame about your pie too! We picked up a cherry pie the other day that was a bit overdone. Crust falling apart and crumbly. Thankfully it still tasted great, but very messy :p

    TGIF!!

    Sorry 'bout the apple pie my friend:(. Just throw a little vanilla ice cream on it and it'll be fine!:D Maybe warm it ip a bit first then throw on a big scoop of ice cream:thumbsup:

    Yes, it's a very different knife isn't it? :D I tabbed up a slingshot with some heavy tubes, which were a bit short for my draw length, but they're a bit heavy for the tabs - and for me! :rolleyes: Thanks mate, it's still only partly cooked in the middle, so I'll have to see if I can do something about it, even though the centre has collapsed o_O I wish I'd opted for the cherry pie now ;) :thumbsup:

    That's the healthy way to eat an apple Bill, cool shot :thumbsup:

    Thanks Bill, I think I'll try putting foil over it, and put it in the oven for ten minutes. I don't fancy eating that half-cooked pastry o_O I don't have any ice-cream in I'm afraid, but maybe I'll have it with custard :) :thumbsup:

    Speaking of pies, I found the white thing on the right that says just "Germany" on it while looking for something else. I think it must be a pie-funnel. The blackbird is Chinese and the Wade is Vietnamese (but designed in England, I'm sure. Great Aunt Edie had one just like it).
