    Those Waynorth lambsfoots are extraordinary, especially the jigged bone. But I opted for the Barlow. Magnificent knife. In my pocket now.

    My favorite pattern for function is the santuko. Second in line in that regard is a slender fixed blade 3 to 4 inches in a puukko or birdntrout type. For reasons of concealibiity and portability and multiple bladeability I like about a hundred different kinds of folders.
    Edit: Sorry- I didn't go back to see the title of the thread. Well, then, a dogleg jack.

    The alert must have awoken him from his reverie!

    A very quotable quote!

    No such thing as an improved trapper! Ideal carry is a trapper on my belt and a lambsfoot--SINGLE BLADE--in my pocket. Covers all bases. ;)

    Next, I suppose you're going to stubbornly stick to your claim that the Astros are the best team in baseball this year! :rolleyes:

    They just whupped the Rangers 12-4, and certainly have a great chance to win it all this year. I think it will be another showdown with the Yankees, and then we will see the Dodgers lose their third World Series in a row! ;)

    Thanks - it's a mod I do to factory muskrats ... the nail nick position sets up perfectly to form into a wharncliffe. I've done this to several others knives - PM me if interested.

    Not really a slipjoint pattern but it is a traditional pattern is the lockback. I have always preferred single bladed knives and the lockback gives me an extra level of protection.

    Thank you, Vince. It's actually an old pic, and a few of those are no longer mine. I have more than are pictured, way too many, really. It's just such a great total package: the serpentine shape fits the hand wonderfully and the three distinct blades give tremendous utility.
