    Get’s some rest, Vince, then let us know how the Shiner Tour went. My guess is that a good time was had by all.

    @pjsjr Tell us all about it....later...ZZZZZZ

    @dc50 That Image warms my heart.

    @waverave Nifty pins there, Darren. Unless your sworn to secrecy, any further Lamb Intel would be much appreciated. Sure looks like you had fun.

    @tmd_87 Cheers at the fire pit.

    image.jpg Yes Jack, I did thin out the blade. Good eye :thumbsup:

    I ground away at the primary bevel, back from just behind the cutting edge on the sharpening bevel, to the spine, getting rid of a wide and uneven sharpening bevel, and straightening a previously warped blade.

    I just now put a fresh edge on both blades, so it's ready for anything. :)

    Thank you, Dennis, I'm thinking its better if it's snowing rather than raining, you can do more things in the snow. :thumbsup::D

    Thank you very much Dwight, stellar pic there, as always :) :thumbsup:

    Hope you get a good 'un Larry :) :thumbsup:

    Good luck in your new adventure Dave :) :thumbsup:

    Me too! :) Though I think I'd need 'Learner' plates! :D :thumbsup:

    Looking good Dave :) :thumbsup:

    RALF is looking good :) :thumbsup:

    I saw Charlie's graphics a while back, but it is great to see those buttons in your hand Darren :) Excited about the knives :thumbsup:

    Hope you had a great visit Vince, cool pic with your AC :cool: :thumbsup:

    Sounds like you put a lot of work in Preston :) Great pic of your '19 :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Joshua :) :thumbsup:

    Nice work Michael, it looks like it'll cut like the Dickens :) :thumbsup:

    Morning folks, hope everyone is having a great weekend. I ache today, but in a sort of good way, as I clocked up miles yesterday than I regularly hike these days :) Got some housework to do today, and some stuff in the garden, but hoping I can hang out on The Porch a little too ;) Enjoy your Sunday Guardians, this one seemed appropriate to the day :) :thumbsup:

    Well may I say how handsome it looks. I'll have to go back through the thread and look up it's introduction :thumbsup:
    I hope that beer then is a worthy successor to that other Newcastle Brown Ale which is now brewed in....Birmingham..?? :rolleyes:

    That looks stunning Dave. But I've got to say when I looked at that picture my first thought was actually "I wonder if Cochrane also has a big head sculpture??"...:D
    Good look with the move!

    A magazine quality shot again Dwight; you certainly have some skill with a lens. :thumbsup:

    And thank you all chaps, your very welcome and it's good to hear you enjoy them so much. They'll be more as I post more pics of my rosewood, which is helping me with some chores about the house today. :)

    Thank you very much David :) It's a bit of a Fancy Dan, but I am very pleased with it :)

    I suspect that Newcastle Brown's move south may be a factor in declining sales. Apparently Mann's sell more of their Brown Ale on Tyneside now. When I was young, I drank brown ale regularly, now it is more of an occasional treat, as I don't see it as often. I am still to try Timmy Taylor's Brown Ale :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D That's funny about the Big Head David! :D :thumbsup:

    Looking forward to seeing more of your pics my friend :thumbsup:

    It's a very Fancy Dan Jack.:thumbsup: Thanks for reposting that pic, I was just looking at that on page 890something :thumbsup:. Their all nice but the ironwood is the looker of the bunch :cool::thumbsup:
    How come Wright's came to do these though? Are they prototypes to test the market? Random blades they've found at the back of the storeroom?

    Aye I occasionally drink a bottle of Mann's but I've not touched Newkie Brown in years, and I didn't even know Timmy Taylor's did a brown ale so thanks for making me aware of that :D

    The patterns were commissioned by me David :thumbsup:

    I saw Taylor's Brown Ale on sale in The Fat Cat last August, but the pump was on the other side of the bar, so I didn't see it until we were about to leave, and they've not had it on again. I'm due a trip over to Keighley ;)

    I read somewhere that men at arms offerred knighthoods for their deeds of arms would sometimes decline because they lacked the funds to support the dignity.
    It doesn't seem like this guy would be in that category, and you'd think 10 years fighting in Scotland would have given him some opportunities.
    Be back with some lambsfoot content.
    [ah, here it is.]

    The last of a few I got for Christmas in 1967 in London. Good thing we had family there, because absolutely everything was closed for a few days.
