    That's clearly a well-used hard working knife Taylor :) :thumbsup:

    Congratulations on the Ancient Dylan, Perry is a class act :) :thumbsup:

    Great pics Paul :) I completely missed that Duncan had found his well-travelled knife! :eek: That was a very kind act loaning him yours, you're a true friend :) I'm glad you have it back with you though, and that Duncan has his single spear again :) :thumbsup:

    Hope everyone has a great weekend :) I'm having a Double Lambsfoot Day! :D :thumbsup:

    Today will be lazy day. Too much ozone in the air to do any chore, even in the garden. So a tiny and capable 303 will do the (no) job! :)

    @Old Engineer Harry, thanks so much for the helpful follow-up on my "mystery Russell" barlow. I'm chasing down the tips you've provided in this and the other threads.
    @joeradza , @jwb01 , @SteveC , @Travman That's a passel of pretty knife pictures posted by y'all this morning. I'm totin' a 1981 NKCA "Big Cigar" by Queen today. Not much cuttin' on my horizon, except for clipping a cigar or two later today/tonight. This should do the job.

    Thanks Stuart. Awful nice stag on that Queen. Blades look pretty much like a canoe.

    Nice Lambsfoot Steve. Wright's still use that exact same blade blank, do the same pattern, use the same stamp. Even the Sambar scales do not mean that it was made before the Indian Government ban on stag exports, it took a while for that ban to bite in Sheffield, and even now, Wright's occasionally turn out one of those 'Candle-end' models with Sambar. I got one last year. The stag has mellowed, but the Sambar they're using was often cut decades ago for cutlery handles, and the construction (number of pins) is exactly the same as today. So, your knife could be 5 years old, 10 years old, or 20 years old. You could perhaps hazard a guess from the amount of wear it has had, but that might merely indicate that it was used a lot, rather than that it was used over a longer period. In terms of the construction, I think that Wright's have pulled their socks up a lot in terms of QC, but that is only over the past couple of years, so again, the quality of construction tells us little. I'm assuming it has brass liners, if not, that would indicate an older knife. My guess would be that it was made within the past 20 years, but it's hard to say more than that, particularly without examining it. It could be older, but it isn't an old knife. It might help if you said where you acquired the knife :thumbsup:

    Got the Jeep packed and ready to head out and do a little four wheeling. We are going to go patrol one of the local 4x4 trails that my club sponsors. Should be a fun day in the Sierras with a nice picnic at the top overlooking a small lake. Slid the #43 into my back pocket next to my wallet. It should be able to handle whatever pops up today.
