    @JTB_5 That’s a nice Seiko pilots watch to go with your fine Lamb, Joshua.

    @donn Beautiful stone for the back drop. May I ask what is it?

    Won this one in a GAW from Jack Knife, with all these great Lambfoot blades I had to carry mine. Love the blade profile on these, extremely versatile.

    Of course Harvey. It's the tomb of a certain Sir Robert de Moreby a 14th Century English Knight.

    There were of course many knights. This gentleman holds no particular place in history but he appears to of distinguished himself in his lifetime. He'd of served both King Edward II and King Edward III, the Isabella mentioned being the wife of Edward II; not one of our finest kings it must be said.

    Our country churches contain many of these tombs, though sadly not as many as they did as many were damaged during our civil wars in the 17th century. This one is to found in the pretty little Norman church of St' Helen's in the village of Stillingfleet in North Yorkshire. I was walking round the church and saw the colours cast onto the stone by the stained glass window above the tomb and just thought it would make a great shot.

    Have just been looking at a UK knives retailer website and they have a new in, A Wright lambsfoot in bubinga wood. This is a wood I am not at all familiar with and the photo on the website is not that good. Does anybody have one? If so what if the wood like? Thanks.

    Seems like it took him a long time to make knight.

    Thank you David. It was that reflected color of the stain glass that first attracted me to the image. Sir Robert had a very interesting background(I read the inscription). Also, what beautiful craftsmanship of the effigy. So much history, so many stories. Thank you kindly for sharing some of it.

    Your welcome chaps. You'll see that church again in another post at some point in the future as I was there for something else.
    And your right Jer I'm not sure what the (various) criteria were for being knighted. Obviously you had to be of noble birth but noble birth did not necessarily mean you'd be knighted. Not sure whether it depended on your father having passed and the knight inheriting the title and estate.

    Newbie here,
    Does A. Wright and Sons make the Lambsfoot with the Damascus
    Blades or is it someone else? Thanks.

    I've obviously missed a bit Jack, but is the new fella one of those Damascus bladed chaps you mentioned a good few weeks a back?
    And secondly is that a 'proper' Brown Ale? :)

    Thank you Jack. Hope you enjoyed the pint as much as you enjoyed your day. Great image of your Lambs’ moment in the Sun. I think you deserve a second pint.:)

    Hi Larry :) Those knives were made by A.Wright & Sons, but they were a Special Factory Order :thumbsup:

    Yes indeed, one of only 20 in total, only five of which are of that pattern :thumbsup:

    Brewed in Newcastle, and the feller in the Skipton beer shop reckons more of it is drunk on Tyneside than any other Brown Ale :thumbsup:

    Thank you Dwight, almost ;) I did have a few before that one ;) :D :thumbsup:
