Thanks Barrett! :)
I agree, that ‘carbine length’ Lambsfoot is a very interesting variant. The 25 GEC pattern is one of my favourites too, and I’d love to see a (Waynorth?;):cool:) version with a proper lambsfoot blade. It would be a very useful knife, I’m sure.
Yeah, I’ve been doing lots of...
Sorry to be an errant Guardian, but I thought I’d drop by to say hello. I hope you’re all well.
Herder, my friend, that catalogue image you found is fascinating, as always.
I actually recollect posting about one of those late period swell centre Rodgers Lambsfoots from a friend’s collection a...
Well said, Paul.
I’m not too aware of the background of this, except what I’ve just read tonight here and in the closing post of the Guardians thread, but Randy has always been a good and dear friend to me as well.
I echo your sentiments.
Do you know just how much handcrafting and skilled...
Sorry to hear this and my thoughts are with you, Jack.:(
And the only things that will be getting flung at your coconut-shy from this part of the world, are respect, appreciation and admiration for all you’ve done - both here on the Porch and elsewhere.;):)
LOL, cheers mate! Yeah, the flavours and scents of those three chilli powders are distinctly different. The Moruga Scorpion and Carolina Reaper approach ‘Weapons Grade’ level though!
I’m glad you’re enjoying the Ghost seasoning - it’s one of my favourites for flavour and heat. The ‘Ghost’ name...
Hey there Guardians!
Just a quick hello before I head off to work.
I hope you’re all well.
Belated thanks for the kind comments Jack, Ron, GT, Harvey, Dennis, David and Barrett. Sorry if I missed anyone.
Leon, I’m glad that Waynorth LF is serving you well as a working knife.
Hey Guardians, I hope you all had a good weekend!
Yes, those people I was chatting to about oysters in the St Georges Market seemed genuinely curious. I concluded they might have been from a rural inland area - either that or they were just used to eating processed prepackaged...
Thanks Will, I love Elizabeth David’s books, particularly the parts about travelling through the French countryside and finding those hidden gems of local cuisine.
Yes, that knife is a Japanese rendition of a French petit knife. I prefer the Western style Sabatier type handle it has, as many...
Happy Friday, Guardians!
Thanks mate, yes it was an enjoyable walk for sure, along an old rail trail in the Yarra Valley which used to transport produce from farms into the markets in Melbourne. Oh yeah, it’s the dead of winter, my friend.:p Would you like to hear us complaining about the...
Thank you Charlie, best of luck for your operation and a speedy recovery!:)
As well as sliding oysters off their shells, I hear the Lambsfoot also works well for slicing up chillis!
(The last pic is a delicious mushroom arancini.;))
Jack, like Kevin I’m having difficulty thinking of anyone to nominate for your kind giveaway who doesn’t already have a Lambsfoot.
At first I thought of Abbydaddy’s son who recently had a Recruit gifted to him by Carl, but I see that Abbydaddy already has a Lambsfoot knife.
I would have liked...
I hope all you Guardians have been having an enjoyable weekend.
We’re starting to see some pubs and restaurants open here, with a 20 person limit.
I went for a walk with a mate on Sunday and had my first pint for a while at a country brewery.
This dark Czech lager was the standout of...
I’ve just caught up on the thread, and had time to do some multiquoting this time!
Thanks Duncan! Now that you mention it, I used to work with a bloke who had been in the British Merchant Marine and he had a tatt like that depiction of Bagheera.
Thanks Jack - that’s a great pic of your...
Thanks John.:) Yeah the Caribbean's been a great knife. LC200N is quite similar to a good carbon steel in terms of ease of sharpening and ability to take a very fine edge, with the bonus of being rustproof. I had to dye the bumblebee scales though. I'm sure they work well for maximising...
