    I would be very happy to be a member of this John Lloyd Knife Appreciation Society. There have been other models but the stacked leather recently acquired by joeradza is extra special. 8 in the oven says he :rolleyes:, maybe there's a chance that someday I will have the pleasure. In the meanwhile I ogle the pretty knives. :)

    A while back I asked John if he could make a stag teardrop for me. I owned a Case (too small) and a Queen (a little too beefy). I thought something in between would be perfect. Did I mention I wanted a matched pair? Oh, and a special shield to honor my home on Sanibel in Florida.
    As it turned out it was like needing your ceiling painted and ending up with the Sistine Chapel. John absolutely nailed it. Gorgeous stag, 3 11/16" closed, engraved shield in the shape of a clam shell, half stops, and a zulu blade. These will forever be John Lloyd Clam Shell Teardrops.

    I'll try not to be too repetitious, but it may be hard with this beauty.

    Thanks Mark. It turned out better than I could of hoped for. The stag is outstanding, size, blade shape and the execution of the shield is spot on.
