    Meako, Kermit truly was a scrappy one who didn't like to open up. He finally conceded after several prolonged mineral oil baths and extensive joint excersize. Today his main blade is a very pleasing 6 on a scale of 10. The pen on the other hand remains a 9... still I'm happy to have an excellent lambfoot thanks to you. -James-

    I have posted these pictures in that other thread, but I think they should be here too, to join all the wonderful knives and stories developing!
    Great Idea, Jack, to reprise the Lambsfoot's Tale!!


    The upper knife barely tapers, but I think it is fair to call it a Lambs-as-opposed-to-Sheep-foot!

    I wish I knew more about the history of that 19OT. Did Schrade USA manufacture that model, or is the Landshark an invention of Taylor Brands LLC?


    AS r8shell says:

    It's interesting that they sort of re-invented the Lambsfoot! Aw, you didn't get one yourself, I'm doubly impressed by your kindness in gifting me one It's a knife I often use when I need to cut out cardboard, balsa wood, or other materials. It works good

Kermit was banished to America were he underwent Intensive Restorative Coloration Therapy (IRCT). After successful completion of IRCT he was given a new (secret) identity and is now (and has been for many years) the fine upstanding member of the Lambfoot Society of America you see here today.

    He certainly looks a LOT better now! Great-looking knife in my opinion

    Thank you. And thanks for all the other information, as well, my friend. Good stuff!
    There was definitely a time when a lot of, often meaningless, superlatives were bandied about on English cutlery!

    A pleasure Greg, enjoying the conversation

  5. Anyone reshape a sheepfoot into a lambsfoot? I have a ~100 year old junior cattle knife with a sheepfoot that looks a bit like a lambsfoot. A lot of old used blades seem to have a taper to them after sharpening... I guess from uneven pressure when sharpening... or maybe they were tipped and reshaped. One of the GEC boy's knives with a single sheepfoot might be turned into a nice lambsfoot with some sharpening/reshaping.

    Is the Guardians of The Lambsfoot a play on Guardian's of the Galaxy? The logo could use Marvel type font. Does that make Jack the Lambsfoot Lord?

    I've certainly seen plenty of Lambsfoot blades that have ended up as punches after a lifetime of sharpening Jake!

    I'm afraid there wasn't that much thought went into it! It just sounded funny and gender-neutral

    Yorkshiremen throw very little away! This old Thomas Turner had an edge on it when I picked it up

    No maker's name on this one, but Paul PMEW assures me it's the same as his dad's old Taylor's Eye Witness

    A couple of Lambsfoot knives bearing the Unity stamp used by several Sheffield co-operative ventures over the years. The top knife is in great condition, with the strongest of strong pulls. The lower knife has had some use.

    Lamb-punch?

    I made a lambsfoot out of a surplus hawksbill. To me, most hawksbills are surplus, but they have a nice swaybacked handle. I'll come across it one of theses days, I hope.

    It was one of those things I threw in the shopping basket on impulse, just to check one out. Then seeing the shape of that blade in person, well it had to go to the Grand Guardian.

    Here at r8shell's Home for Worn and Wayward Lambfeet, These tired blades are given respect.

    relaxing in the sun:

    on arrival with some other gifts from Jack, I need to take a solo picture of this weary traveler:

    Very nice - amazing collection of Lambsfoot in here.

    For several weeks I've been trying to get my hand on a particular knife (Lambsfoot) but haven't been able to find any US distributors and I'm not familiar enough with UK distributors. One US distributor used to carry it but just recently stopped importing them.
