    Gary, you’re Lam Jack and its’ reflected light frames things nicely. I think I can speak for everyone when I say the welcome light is always on. Do what you have to do to take care of things. We’re blessed with your presence.

    Looking forward to this American Lamb Foot, Charlie, and hoping for some excellent jigged bone covers!

    I like your whiskey glass, Jack. I’ve always found the old pewter tankards with glass bottoms interesting, too. :thumbsup:

    I think the vandalism to that mural must’ve occurred not long before my visit to Sheffield in December. I think you first noticed it when we were walking down the hill together to grab breakfast. It’s a real shame. :(

    Beautiful knife, Jack, always a pleasure to see that one. Have you spoken to Stan recently? I know it had been a while since you’d had a chance to visit with him. (Sorry if you’ve mentioned it elsewhere, I’ve done a pretty poor job of keeping up lately.)

    Randy, having spent all my formative years in Arkansas, I've always been fond of sweet tea, but over the last few years I’ve come to appreciate iced tea without quite so much sugar in it. It’s even pretty good without any sugar at all. That said, if I’m making a pitcher at home, I’ll usually add some sugar, but only about 1/4 (maybe less) of the amount my mom or either of my grandmas would’ve used. :D

    Hey, I was listening to this song just the other day. :D

    Exciting stuff, Charlie! Really looking forward to this one! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Wonderful news Charlie. Congratulations the drawing looks superb. It looks like the sharpened part of the blade will be a hair under the inches mark, which is good news for people over here in the UK. Thanks a lot.

    Great pics guys :) :thumbsup:

    Good to see you here GT :) And your Lam Jack :) Keep pushing the rock brother! ;) :D :thumbsup:

    The usual Sisyphus analogy here used to be with 'the painters on the Forth Road Bridge' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forth_Bridge), who got to one end, only to have to start again. However, unlike Sisyphus, their task came to an end eventually (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-14789036), kind of ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for your many great contributions Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! Looking good Ron :D :thumbsup:

    Nice :) :thumbsup:

    That'd be nice :) I'm sure Charlie will be fair, but let's remember folks, this thread is about discussing the knives themselves, not the buying process :thumbsup:

    Fabulous Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    Yeah, those market traders make very little, it's almost as bad as stealing from a charity box :( :thumbsdown:

    Great collection Rachel :) I think I might go Big today in celebration of Charlie's achievement :) :thumbsup:

    Because of your restrictions at work John? :( I wasn't a particular fan of the small size initially, but the ACs really charmed me :) :thumbsup:

    Great stuff Charlie (see folks? :) ), it's been hard containing my excitement these past few years, but I am so thrilled for you, and for all of us :) :thumbsup: Please help protect us from a lolly scramble! ;) :thumbsup:

    Thank you my friend, hard to believe how fast the last 400 pages have gone! :eek: When we get to page 1000, I'll announce some giveaways :) :thumbsup:

    Wonderful wood, I am grateful for all your insights on the subject :) I have heard cutlers say Lignum also clogs their belts up :thumbsup:

    Thanks Barrett, it was a gift from a friend last Christmas :) I have my grandfather's slightly-battered old pewter tankard with the glass bottom and hanged man, but unfortunately, my grandmother, having spent many years in the cutlery trade, in later life, through one of her many old pals, had it silver-plated, which makes it a pain to clean :rolleyes:

    Yes, that'd be right Barrett, a terrible thing, and the mural has been painted over now :( I was talking about it with John Maleham recently, and he said he caught someone painting graffiti (tagging) on the wall of the factory. When he challenged the youth, he said it was art, so John told him to go and paint on his mother's house, and he could tell her that! :rolleyes:

    A month or so ago Barrett, but only on the phone, I really need to get over and see him, but he has been off work for a while, recovering from a cataract operation. I have been so busy lately, but will try to get over to see him soon :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Spooky! :eek: No doubt it was something to do with Eleanor my friend :) :D :thumbsup:

    Did you mean to add that (bracketed) Wayne? :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians, looks like you've been busy while I've been snoozing! :D Taken me a good hour to put this post together! :eek: I better get my skates on! :rolleyes: Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and that your Sunday is just as good :) :thumbsup: I'm at least as thrilled by Charlie's announcement as everyone else - been waiting for this one a lonnnnnngg time - but please bear in mind my comments above, and also help protect the non-commercial nature of our thread from the indiscretions of any newcomers who wander in :) :thumbsup: To celebrate the great news, I thought I'd carry a couple of Big 'Uns myself today :) :thumbsup:

    My work restrictions have taught me one thing...
    I really prefer a smaller knife that I can slip into my watch pocket. The regular sized Lambsfoot fits pretty well in my Wrangler's watch pocket. It's a bit snug, but the shape of the handle makes it very comfortable to carry that way. I'm thinking the Small Lambsfoot would be my "ideal" knife for size and blade. I plan to find that out for sure some day soon.

    The regular sized Lambsfoot is actually the biggest knife I have in my collection now. I've sold everything bigger because I just never carried them. I guess I'm just a small to medium sized knife guy at heart. I'm not really a collector of knives, more like I have a good amount of knives that I like to rotate through. So if they don't get carried, they end up getting sold or given away.

    That was a wordy way of saying, "I like 3" to 3-5/8" knives". :D

    Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the Index @Cambertree what a great resource.
    I've spent the weekend sloooowly filing away at the kick and have the spring almost flush when closed... Close enough for it not to bother me and I know that if I keep going sods law will make sure the edge hits the spring!
