    Thank you, GT. It’s always a pleasure to see you posting here or elsewhere in the Traditionals. Your images are no accident. Your knowledge, style, and knives are pure joy. The Valley Jack is right handsome. Be well. Until the next time.

    Most Spanish AVE are built by Alstom or Bombardier and except one from Siemens are based on the French technology. There's an agreement that allows TGV ride in Spain and AVEs in France.
    Spanish railways used a wider track, but most high speed trains use standard European 1,435m tracks.

    I like how the grain in your ironwood seems to be showing up the grain in the stone. :D

    I think the Damascus steel used in these lambsfoots is some of the best I've seen. :thumbsup:

    The TGV is a great train to travel on JP, I have done the journey from Lille to Barcelona many times, but not for about 10 years. I think the TGV terminated at Montpellier then? I do remember you have to sit for about 20 minutes at Perpignon while the wheels are changed/adjusted to fit the wider Spanish track, but by then, I think you are on the TALGO, so far as I recall. I have always enjoyed European rail journeys, the worst, and most expensive, are here in the UK, though even here, there are some good routes (Scotland particularly). I remember going on the Trans-European Express in the 1970's :) :thumbsup:

    Cool pics guys :) :thumbsup:

    I like it too Vince :) I like Damascus generally, but there are a few patterns which I think look too uniform. There is plenty of interest in this pattern :) I certainly never imagined I would own a Damascus Lambsfoot :cool: :thumbsup:

    Thanks Vince! I agree my friend! :)

    Thank you Jack! :)

    She’s a beauty Barry! :thumbsup: :) By the way, I can’t help but notice that you, just like the rest of us have been bitten by the Lambsfoot bug! ;) They are extremely addictive! :thumbsup: :D
