    Thanks Jack! This one could make any photo look good! :) That candle end is an exceptional knife Jack! Excellent Sambar indeed! :thumbsup: I must try to add one of those to my collection. It’s a pattern that is missing!

    Some nice jigged bone in that photo. I particularly like the darker reddish brown one. :thumbsup:

    LOL! Thanks :D I am looking forward to my ACL taking on a bit more colour, hopefully :)

    Thanks Ron, the pieces of Sambar they get aren't usually big enough to use on the larger patterns, but if they could do an extended triple-rat-tail bolster like this...

    Or an extended threaded bolster like this...

    Or indeed any other type of extended bolster, a flat Barlow bolster for example, then things would change ;) :thumbsup:

    Here's some examples from Thomas Turner (1902), I think look pretty good :)

    Absolutely superb :) Thanks for giving us another look :) :thumbsup:

    Be nice wouldn't it Ron? :) I've talked to Wright's about the possibility of a triple rat-tail bolster on a number of occasions. So far, all our bolsters have been ground by hand, but one of the skills is matching the two bolsters exactly - otherwise they'd look awful. Obviously, with a bolster with multiple grooves, things get a lot harder, so it would almost certainly require a tooling investment. Because of the small Guardians runs, that expenditure might not be justified. But we'll see, it would really depend on how many people were interested :thumbsup:

    Have we seen that one before Dave? Good-looking Lambsfoot my friend :) :thumbsup:

    That's cracking Jack! Museum quality finds there! I hope Mr Maleham keeps clearing out his cupboards :thumbsup:

    That patina is coming on nicely :thumbsup:

    I read on here somewhere the best way was cutting raw chicken. With mine I think it was chorizo sausage.

    Your to kind sir to kind :):thumbsup: Thank you for the kind words but you have to admit the stag on the Ashley's Choice is absolutely sublime. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new arrival :thumbsup:

    Is that this year?! Sorry I know it is but I've got to ask. :eek: Is that normal for where you live?

    That's stunning! I mentioned a bit ago about the current Sheffield offerings of jigged bone lacking soul. What I was thinking of what Sheffield jigged bone should look like I had pictured in my head something like that. :thumbsup:

    As always these days this one, assisting me with pie duties. But I've just found out the tip is bent :mad: and I've not a clue how it's happened...:mad:

    David, we've even had snow overnight in July! Yes its normal, but it should snow then melt the next day. This is abnormal, sounds like our temps are running around
    - 4° to +5° for the next week. :thumbsdown: our average should be +17° :(

    Thanks, Jack.
    I really like the idea of the long rat tail bolster!

    That will kick start the patina, for sure. :thumbsup:

    Thank you, David.
    Sorry to hear about the tip on your Lambsfoot, I hope it isn't too bad.
    The pint and pie that is accompanying your knife look reeeeeal good to me right now.
