    Oops. Looks like I promised to return with lambsfoot content in Carl's Lounge. Oh well.
    These little knights were made by Britain's in England. The heads turned, the visors raised and lowered, the swords came out of the fists and went into the tiny scabbards, the poniards went into one of the loops on the belt. Their waists turn, too. Step on them and their heads break off.

    Thanks, Vince, especially as the Lambsfoot grows in popularity on this side of the pond
    Harvey, retriever field trialing is a niche sport. Not many know about it for various reasons. I don't do trials anymore, but love being around the people and dogs. I'm fortunate to be able to work with Dutch and expand his talents with the help of a professional and a group of like minded folks.
    !
    Wonderful shot of the Damascus Lambsfoot, Jack, that is a great example! I ache also, but it's also a good ache. I'm lucky to be able to do what I can with Dutch. Have a good day and easing those sore muscles with more work...that's the way:D:p:D
    Enjoy your exploits, David, thanks for taking the time enlightening us all.
    You as well Ron, love that grain swirling towards the end of your knife.:thumbsup:
    Of course not Dave, especially if you share:D That does make a great photo...well done.
    Another wonderful shot, you should do a calendar Dwight, or a coffee table book of Lambsfoot photos!
    Nice photo, seems like you find things out like I do, Jer...I'm an original 'this happened to me'! Enjoy your Sunday.
    Have a great Sunday, Guardians. Get ready for the week ahead.

    Lovely pic Ron, your '19 is gorgeous :thumbsup:

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm :) :thumbsup:

    You too Dwight, outstanding pic :) :thumbsup:

    Ah, the Headless Swordsmen! ;) I used to have some just the same Jer, they were very inexpensive and lots of fun, some of my earliest toys when I think about it :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you Preston, I am feeling OK now, everything, but my aching feet! :D Your Rosewood is looking good :) :thumbsup:

    Don't work too hard, Jack. Hope you enjoy your Sunday too.

    I didn't think it was your house, but I was hoping it was on your property. :D

    I hope you have a great Sunday too, Ron.

    Bananas are fruit, and I usually have fruit with my breakfast. So, ya... go for it, Dave.

    I hope you have a good Sunday too, Dwight.

    I hope your Sunday is good too, PJ.

    Cool action figures decorating your lambsfoot photo, Jer! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    Is the knight in back, with sword raised, carrying in his left hand a slice of pizza topped with a white Yorkshire rose??? Curious.

    Here's another shot of my Man Jack, taken when I first received it. The photo shows the mark side, whose stag isn't quite as nice as pile side IMHO. (The pic also shows several reflections of my fingers, a flaw that still plagues my shots.)

    Thanks a lot John :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D :thumbsup:

    I think with a lot of the earlier models of that pattern, they started off with stag which wasn't the best, cut it too thick, then ground off half the character. My first example was absolutely awful o_O Wright's made me another with Sambar covers, my first contact with the firm. Very decent of them, and the stag is a lot better, but it still suffers from the same issue, why use good stag and then grind if off?! :confused:

    [​IMG]

    I think they are doing a better job now :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    Not that you get Damascus! :D But they're retaining more of the stag, Sambar in this case :thumbsup:

    Good morning all! I have ordered my first lambsfoot, specifically an arthur wright large in rosewood as recommended after talking with members in this thread and am quite excited to recieve it! Im guessing it will take a couple weeks for transit.

    I am curious about the Guardian lambsfoot knife? Was that a special edition for this group? It appears to have a different bolster and maybe different wood on the scales? Also Is there a horn version as ive seen some beautiful blonde horns reading through the posts? I really would like one of those also.

    Thank you Mark, you're really knocking it out of the park with the pics of your '19 :cool: :thumbsup:

    Nice call, hope it reaches you soon :) :thumbsup:

    The Guardians Lambsfoot is an annual group buy, 2017 was horn, in 2018 we had both horn and ebony, this year it was Desert Ironwood. Different bolsters, and superior fit and finish. Next year, who knows, but probably not horn? If you get yourself a paid membership some time this year, PM me your email address, and I'll add you to the Guardians email list :thumbsup:

    Special Dave :) :thumbsup:

    That kind of thing is even more important than a good night's sleep Taylor :) Your '19 is looking good, have you oiled the wood? Enjoy your Sunday my friend :thumbsup:
