    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind remarks. The window-lit portrait of your Union and Lam Jacks is superb, shown with a spot on composition. Some real skill with the totem carving. Have you ever carved an Opinel? Finally, that red leaf in the image of the Lam Jack adds a nice touch.

    Im not a big traditional guy but i have enjoyed looking through the pictures and really like the blade shape and larger handle ive seen on some of these real lambsfoot pieces. I dont know anything about them other than what Ive read in this thread. Are these expensive knives? I imagine they are hard to find also but i would like to own one preferably in 3"+ blade length. Is there a particular year or model i could get into one as a beginner piece?

    I can’t post non-BFs commercial sites, and @Jack Black would know best, but your best intro into the wonderful world of Lambsfoot patterned knives, would be a Rosewood. Based on your size requirement, I would go for the large. I can send you info on where to acquire.

    My only other thought is that this thread welcomes you to explore, follow, and join in. The only caution is no other knives but Lambsfoot ones. Welcome.

    Yes please send me some info that would be great! Thank you! I did find a ck real lambs foot for sale just now possibly at a good price. Thats what the blade says anyway. Looks like a dark wood handle maybe. The tip looks a little more narrow compared to examples here so maybe its the sheepsfoot version? its from A seller in the UK on another site, i emailed him for more info. Its in a lot of a few knives from his collection . I also found a couple sheffield lambs foots from another uk seller that are brand new jig bone handles. Is there a difference in ck and sheffield brands? Forgive me if it may be basic questions but Im not sure what to look for exactly.

    Thank you my friend :) :thumbsup:

    Cheers Jose, that's a cool pic (love the bottle-cap) :) :thumbsup:

    I had a beer myself with lunch...and then I had another! :D :thumbsup:

    Great pic of your Big 'Un Dwight :thumbsup:

    That's very interesting John, for 90% of the stuff I do with a knife that size certainly suffices :) :thumbsup:

    We have Greg @WhittlinAway to thank for the index :) I think he's going to need some help updating it at some point! :eek: :thumbsup:

    Very Canadian Dave :D :) :thumbsup:

    Very nice John :D :thumbsup: I have an Eco-Drive, in fact I bought them for all my kids when the first ones appeared :thumbsup:

    Thanks buddy :) :thumbsup:

    Have a great time Preston, fab pic :) :thumbsup:

    Still a great pic Dwight :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for stewarding us down Memory Lane GT, and it's nice to see your timeless Lam Jack :) :thumbsup:

    I think Cheddar is the most popular GT, both in Yorkshire and nationally (the other bit ;) ) :) Wensleydale was always a cheese I enjoyed though, subtle, creamy, and crumbly. I think it was popularised more recently, by an animated series called Wallace & Grommit (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallace_and_Gromit) :thumbsup: Thank you for your kind words, and for another pic :) :thumbsup:

    I think you'll find more info in this thread than anywhere else :) Generally, they are inexpensive knives. Perhaps start off with a simple Rosewood-covered model by A.Wright & Son, then you can see if you like the pattern :) I'm afraid you'll have to research a vendor without the help of this thread though :thumbsup:

    Cheddar may be the most popular internationally too. It's my favorite, especially the extra sharp. The Mexican restaurants around here usually use cheddar in the cheese enchiladas.
    I also like Cheshire cheese, but haven't found it lately. Similar taste to Cheddar but more brittle.

    No doubt there is an overwhelming amount of info here but thats a good thing! Thank you everyone for all the helpful replys. I will go back through the thread and build my research up further and plan on picking up a large lamb foot very soon!

    This is what you're looking for my friend. A Rosewood is the grassroots Lambsfoot. :thumbsup:
