    No apologies required, Jordon. So good to see a Lamb being put to proper use. The blue jigged bone looks beautiful.

    Wow, just saw this mention Jack, I've been occasionally lurking but some pressing issues have taken up a lot of my time lately.

    The second that I have was the stag Big'un I like to call "lumpy" LOL, It actually has a really nice action on it, but the stag was fit a little weirdly, I remedied the issue by sanding some flats on the high spots. The knife oddly came with a polished blade with absolutely no attempt at even putting an edge on it, I laughed when I put my finger to it and felt the butterknife roundness of the blade.

    In the end it only took me few minutes to have this fun knife singing its way through newsprint :D It was my first Lambsfoot and has a warm spot in my heart! Thanks Jack. :thumbsup::cool:

    Very nice!
    Your fortune cookie quote reminded me that I opened one to read "You are soon to meet a short, dark haired man". As I turned and took a step while scratching my head, I bumped into dark haired midget! NO LIE! True.

    Thanks for all of that Jack ,it was very interesting to see that Jousting is still conducted , even though in a very small scale . Very sorry for your bad back .
    I know back pain and it is not much fun especially when you are told that it can't be fixed . Glad to see that you are Carry'n On instead of just Sitting It Out . Take care my friend .

    Thanks Jack. I've been quite busy, but can't really complain. One of these days it'll slow down. In the meantime, rest assured that there's a lambsfoot in my pocket pretty much every day. :)

    Sorry to hear that your back is giving you problems again. I'm glad you were able to make it through the tournament, though. Those photos were amazing and I bet it was quite something to behold in person!

    Really sorry to hear about your back problems, got problems in my lower and upper back, I can empathize with you. Hope you get to feeling better my friend!:)
    Very cool! I grew up on horses, a lot of hunting and fishing trips in SW New Mexico, but never been exposed to anything like that! Each photo could be in a travel brochure! Thanks for enduring the pain and posting the event!
    Mine again, encouraged by Preston, and via Petrified Wood: Working on the patina ...

    Great to see your Lambsfoot getting some use Jordan :thumbsup:

    Loooking lovely Dwight :thumbsup:

    Great to see you here Dwight, hope all is well my friend. Thanks for showing us 'Lumpy', you did right to sand it! :D Actually, the one I was thinking of was a different knife, I forget who it went to, it had a small cemented crack in the stag at the rear pin. I guess Lumpy was rejected before the sharpening phase. I just had a look to see if I had a pic of your knife before the sanding, but I couldn't find one, perhaps a good thing! :D :thumbsup:

    Great photo, Dennis. Makes the patina look "artistic".

    Very cool Lamb, Jack.
