    Very nice Duncan! Seems to me that a lot of John's best stuff has the Loreto stamp.

    is that rounded near the top there on the side of the bolster, more of a dogleg shape? or is that a trick of angling that is deceiving my eyes? thanks!

    see how the back side is straight, the blade well side seems to have more of a curve, starting at the top of the bolster. its a very gentle sloping. maybe its the angle of the shot?

    Oh OK I gotcha. Good eye. It's a little more pronounced in the one. Hand made knives so they will vary a little

    It's in my pocket everyday, so it's pretty unlikely I'll part with it.

    Just a reminder for everyone;
    Taken from the guidelines.
    Thanks!

    I forgot about this thread for some reason. A better place to inundate with my Lloyd pics. Yesterday's group photo. And the two new guys.

    Would you consider that to be a fish knife to be a Zulu pattern? I love it!

    Mr. Lloyd does amazing work and he is a real gentleman to corrispond with!

    Good morning jt. How about a fish knife with a Zulu blade? It's really a Zulu with a fish shield. It carries small but the Zulu shape gives access to the full blade, if that makes any sense.

    You hit the nail on the head about John, an absolute gentleman.
