    You know the stag is my favorite, but the mammoth is immaculate.

    I agree with you on the stag Drew. It's as nice as any I own. The mammoth is immaculately done. Flush in all three positions, pull is about 7.5 and pinchable, perfectly centered, transitions are as smooth as glass, and sharp. Did I miss anything? I guess that's good!

    I felt a great need for a knife with Missouri on the tang.

    I also felt a need to not go outside for a photo. It is sweltering.

    I was wondering who got that. Nice pickup of an outstanding knife.

    Thanks
    Thanks.
    My first Lloyd. Probably not the last.
    The green and black flecks in the bone are interesting.

    This one is just weird enough to be cool - might need to grow on you before you take it out in public :D

    Just goes to show you that John Lloyd Knives are beautiful, uncommon, and unpredictable too.

    Still need to get myself one :( :thumbsup:

    I'd like to try one.

    Not to be disparaging - rather sharing my visual impression - the open shape kind of reminds me of this -

    bottlenose-dolphin-062812.jpg

    A design that has proven to be very useful in nature.

    Am I the only one who see this relation?

    Ray I told John it looked like an Orca. So yes,I see what you're seeing & saying . We tossed around a few names. In the end,the " Odd Job " was voted in. Very unique utilitarian blade shape. The frame feels great in your hand
