    @5K Qs it needed a cleaning, hit it will a scotch bright pad, then with a fine steel wool. I may hit it with some flitz too. It turned out pretty good. I did the same thing with my #77 and it looked almost new. Always fun to "start from fresh." Im thinking about doing a forced vinegar patina

    Beautiful Barlow Paul :thumbsup: Hope your hospital appointment goes well :thumbsup:

    Great lines :thumbsup:

    Thanks a lot GT, it was a cold, bright day here, had a nice walk, with lots of history along the way (including Anglo Saxon crosses, Roman altars, the remains of a Roman fort, a 17th century Manor House, and a medieval church) :) Carrying my Guardians Lambsfoot today (again ;) ), shown here next to the beautiful 17th century packhorse bridge over the River Wharfe at Ilkley. Have a relaxing Sunday folks :thumbsup:

    Looks like just the right knife for a walk in Yorkshire. I envy you folks that have all that history around you. Enjoy the day, Jack!

    LOL! :D Thanks a lot my friend :) My (middle) back was aching a little yesterday, but just from lack of recent use I think! :D :thumbsup:

    Here's a better pic of the bridge.

    Very cool photo, A.L. !! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    That's a notable pair, Rob! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I've gushed over your Lloyd shadow stag before, but I'm having trouble tearing my eyes off the Blue Grass Barlow! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;) I have a sawcut delrin clip main version that I really enjoy, but yours is a step up from mine! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Yowza, that is quite a showpiece, Stuart!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: I'll bet it will definitely elicit a lot of chatter from your in-person knife buddies! :cool:;) I love The Porch, but I'll bet an occasional face-to-face knife "show-and-tell" with enthusiasts at a bar is really enjoyable, too!! :D:thumbsup:

    :D:D What worries me most about retirement is that I haven't used an alarm clock for decades; no matter when I go to bed, and no matter what I have planned for the next day, I ALWAYS wake up at 4:30! :eek::(
    An elk Mustang sounds like an appropriate choice for this momentous occasion, Jeff; congrats again! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Compelling Camillus, Steve! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Just seems so right that you've pulled out the Texas Jack, Ryan! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    That bocote Maserin Plow looks fantastic on your rocks, Tom; impressive pair of knives!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Phenomenal covers on those two, Ron; talk of the town!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:;)

    Dapper duo, Frank!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: (I hope you've got your bug under control now.)

    Peerless Pioneer, Prince of Productivity!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:;) Thanks for showing your knife in action, Heath! :cool::cool:

    Sorry to hear that the knee isn't cooperating, Paul. :( But I'm glad you're getting some entertainment mileage out of your enhanced John Wayne impressions! :D

    Thanks for the follow-up, tmd. :) I may have to try a "start from fresh" on a knife over Christmas. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Falling_rain; I enjoy seeing all the superb knives y'all post!! :thumbsup::cool::)

    Sounds like a good day, Jack; fine shot of your Guardians Lambsfoot! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: I had the same reaction as Peregrin when I read what you saw. One of the most lasting impressions of my first trip to Europe (to Spain to visit my daughter 3 years ago) was how old "civilization" in Europe is, compared to "civilization" in North America! :eek::cool::cool:

    Black and Red Classics, Ron!! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Wife, daughter, and I picked out and cut down a Christmas tree at a tree farm yesterday. Got home and put it up, started dragging out some holiday decorations, and listened to some seasonal music, including "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night". That song inspired this photo of the lambsfoot knives I've had near at hand this week.
