    The maker is J Lewis and Sons.
    Factinating to read of yours and CampbellClanMans meeting with Stan as is the videos of him making the penknife.
    I have not seen many stag handled sheffield folders with spear points and yes it is an elegant shape. Just noticed a small chip to the blade, rap from the spring:( Reading up on how to correct it.

    Thanks Jack! I appreciate that my friend! :) Two great choices today! The Lambsfoot from Stan is a beauty. I've never seen a hawk bill quite like that one. It's a beautiful old knife with the etch still intact. The bone is outstanding and the shield is very interesting also. :cool: Did this maker use a shield like that on all their offerings! Again just a great old knife. :) :thumbsup:

    I'm wearing long pants in the house this morning. ;) The temp is in the lower 30's and I had to warm up my sweeties car for her, so I decided against the usual shorts. :eek: I've got three out this morning since I've got plenty of pockets! :rolleyes: I've got my Beaver Tail #23, (Thank you Barrett and Eleanor @btb01). I've also got my Wright's PD stag big'un. Then as I almost forgot, I picked a Queen City Rosewood Copperhead out of the tool box for my Tuesday Random Carry. The Queen City has a soft spot in my heart because I bought it from our late friend and fellow forumite Bob aka @BigBiscuit. Y'all stay safe out there! :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the info :) I'm glad you found the video interesting. It's is Stan's 94th birthday tomorrow :) You'll see more Spear points than Clips. Sorry to hear about the chipped blade, I hope you can sort it out :thumbsup:

    Thanks Ron :) I've seen 3 of those Lancaster Lino Knives, all the same pattern, so perhaps they ordered a big consignment from whichever Sheffield cutler made them. The shield is very unusual, and while I can't say for certain, I'd be surprised if the maker used a shoield like that on all their other knives. Most of the Lino Knives have been fixed blades. I have several, but don't seem to be able to find a pic :thumbsup:

    It's good to see your Abbey Jack my friend! Thanks for the additional info on the Lino knife. :thumbsup: Over here we would probably just call that a Hawk Bill. ;) They do sell a lot of fixed blade knives in the paint and hardware stores. Both in big chain and Mom and Pop stores. Some of those are labeled as Lino knives. :) :thumbsup:

    The Bladeforums 2020 Viper is everything I hoped for and more. It’s a drop smaller than ether the GEC or the RR, it’s a bit stouter than the GEC and way ahead of the RR in luxurious quality (if that makes any sense). The rounded back spring is a different touch. I like it. The closing snap is more muted. I chalk that up to the stop pin? 61B84FD5-6484-42FC-991B-BB85829E23A4.jpeg 06C974B6-E4A1-4BF8-824F-B22C8A4C1162.jpeg 1B10C9DD-537C-4F1C-8BD8-43D57BC02D19.jpeg

    The man is a living piece of history, which is said as intended. I just hope there are some who have learnt what he had to teach.
    Best bit of the vid was the work to correct a binding blade and offsetting the blade to clear the other. That is not simple but he made it look so!
    I prefer clip point to spear, the belly has a more everyday appeal but I tend to see straight cutting edges more with stag handles, well at least for sale. Love your example, the stag looks mega.
    I was going to use my welder to add a mm or two to the kick but decided against, will try to hone the edge and see if clears.

    John, I'm happy when I see a knife like that appear! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Dean, that knife is worthy of a toast with beer! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;)

    ED, your svelte Buck fills me with cheer! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Paul, congrats on a couple of new knives you must hold dear! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Jeff, be careful with the knife (and handgun) so you don't lose an ear! :eek:;)
    (And I'm glad to see someone else who still uses a road atlas instead of some GPS machine. My wife and daughter always stick a GPS to the windshield and it drives me nuts not to have a "big picture" of the area through which I'm traveling. :(:rolleyes:).

    Definitely time well-spent, have no fear! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Dean, thanks for the compliment on my gear. :)

    JJ & Ron & @Trvr & José & Jack, thanks for telling a guy what he likes to hear! :)
    (Of course, is someone tells me different, I just jeer. :rolleyes:)

    Thanks for the encouragement, José. :) I'll try to find one of those "KL" SAKs (I assume that's NOT King Lear. :p)

    It must be tough for young kids to understand all the implications of the pandemic! :(
    Barrett, that French gift knife is one I'd be sure to keep near! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Gloopy casseroles, fresh fruit & cheese, tortilla chips, and desserts are basically what I live on! Food without peer! :D
    Anyone who criticizes your little sleeveboard pen knife deserves a kick in the rear! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the info, John; that tool seems a grand complement to the spear! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Vince, your writing that caused my eye to well up with a tear. ;)

    Thanks for the info. :thumbsup::) Sounds like a knife of the year! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
