    What a lovely looking place. Nice photo, Jack.

    Can't wait to hear this!!!
    I've been putting my knife purchasing on hold for a while, but if this is what I think it is... I may have to start saving my pennies. ;)

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend Guardians!

    @Cambertree , here is the Michael May Lambsfoot Chin, along with it’s Barlow mate a la Trevor Ablett.

    @mitch4ging , yes, those are our cows. They are one half Angus and one half Brahma. That makes them a F-1, first generation cross. They have lots of hybrid vigor but are pretty tough to handle!

    Love your photos and narration of the UK and Lambsfoot's history, Jack, thank you.
    Nice that a worker looks so good, Dave, it must like to work!
    Turned out excellent, too, Jose.
    Nice one, Jeff, must be the earthy feel it gives:D:thumbsup:
    I'm sure it's because it looks so good with a Stag and Damascus Lambsfoot:D:thumbsup::D
    Sure hope I get the good news in time!!!
    Did some looking online, looks like they might useful enough for the investment, even though I don't play enough...only change strings a few times a year. They would be handy for other tasks! Thanks, Kevin, '19 is looking good!
    That is some good looking ironwood in that photo, well done.
    That is an exceptionally good looking Lambsfoot, thanks for posting that. Like the brass bolsters!

    @Jack Black I forgot the exact program and presenter(maybe Nova), but he showed an artist walking around a simple chair, showing the different perspectives. Most of us have a set number of knives. I don’t always succeed, but the fun challenge is how to display each one differently. Changing perspective is one way.

    @Fodderwing Thank you Dwight. Always a pleasure to see your Lamb in that great environment.

    Thanks John, I used to have some business interests there, and would go there at least once a week. It's a nice little market town :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Dwight, stunning pic there my friend :) :thumbsup:

    From the look of things, you got it down pat, as do everyone else here. Love your environmentals. The photography here is perfect. No need for change.

    So, I have been trying to get GEC to make a Real Lamb Foot knife for several years!!:rolleyes:
    It would be a production run of a pattern that has been largely ignored in the North American market since the Lambfoot was developed or invented in England.
    I am proud to tell you, that the knife is in the works!!:)
    The various stamps have arrived, and just to add to the firsts, it will be my first knife with my Brand on it! :eek: Waynorth Cutlery!!!:cool:
    The knife is based on a Joseph Rodgers (JR) design I particularly admire. It won't be a direct copy, but will use some of the best features the JR has to offer, along with GEC's great design skills, materials and workmanship!!
    Here are the Joseph Rodgers Lambfoot knives; the jigged bone being my favorite, but the wood (I think Cocabola ) my second.

    Thank you Harvey, you're very kind :) I try to take as many pics as I can when I'm out, because I know at least half of them will be out of focus! :eek: :rolleyes: :D :thumbsup:

    While I've been grateful to have been taken into your confidence all along Charlie, this is still great news my friend, and a real milestone :) I can't wait to see the knife, and to see the Waynorth Cutlery stamp on it :) Congratulations on your perseverance Charlie :) :thumbsup:

    Here is a drawing of our American Lambfoot, and a revised sketch which shows a change in the kick. I was trying to get a "full" stovepipe*, but production realities altered it a bit!
    The knife, on a new GEC pattern #93, is a hefty 3 7/8" long!!
    Tang mark:
    I used Buffalo as my home base, to recognize my birthplace, and to give tribute to the fact that the knife is truly American! #93 Real Lambfoot cc.jpg revised #93 Drawing.jpg 93 lamb foot Buttons.jpg

    * another of those phrases only knife people understand!!:D
