    Random thought...would Frank Sinatra have carried a lamb foot?

    I always thought of him as a halfcongress kind of guy.

    Definitely a good looking knife. Was that an SFO for CC also? What year was it made? Any idea on production numbers for it?

    Yes. It was his second SFO ever if memory serves, hence the notation HJ2. As to numbers, relatively few of them were made. 111 total if IIRC -- 75 goldenroot bone, 25 ebony, 9 candy stripe celluloid, and 2 stag. If you think getting a knife from one of the desirable GEC drops is hard, you obviously haven't been into slipjoints very long. You'll have to step up your game if you want to find one of these knives.

    Good luck.

    @Norcaldude My comment was not made at you specifically, though now that I re-read my post I know it sounds like it. Sorry I wasn't more clear, please don't take offense as none was intended.

    Just wanted to give you a heads up. The search for one of these HJ2s will be like searching for an old vintage knife. It won't be easy. It may take years. But if you are successful, you'll be very pleased with the results.

    I bet Charlie has some Cattle knife magic.

    He does. Back in its infancy, eBay let an auction's bidders see each other's identities. My first dealing with Charlie was adversarial in nature. He outbid me on a impeccable Imperial cattleman.

    I didn't let that discourage me though and a few months later I was able to find this beauty (prior to The Lolly Scramble was The Search). It was the first of many knives I own that have some sort of association with Charlie.

    Charlie loves knives. He doesn't discriminate. Any finely crafted piece of steel clad in bone, stag, or wood can bring a smile to his face.

    Why oh why did you have to show me this one?!!!! :eek:;):D
    I will forever be on the search from this time forward...
    Seriously, thank you for posting this, I didn't know this one existed until now.
    @waynorth Charlie, you do have a magic touch.

    No. He would have cut it off and slipped it between the satin sheets of your bed as was done with the horse's head in the Godfather when the Don tried to get him a contract in Hollywood.

    Frank never needed to carry a knife, The Chairman could cut you with just a look.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing that one. I knew Charlie had harness jacks before his GEC HJ’s but I had no idea how good looking these were. That jigged bone has personality.

    Right?! I think the bone on this run compares favorably with anything Charlie has chosen for his SFOs. It was the covers that drew me in. At the time I hadn't seen anything like them.

    Yes. The jigged bone on these 93 Lambfoot knives is special. It is somewhat similar to what was done on Charlie’s #48 Diamond Jack.
