No, sadly I did not get one.
I had a couple of opportunities to purchase one, thanks to Porch Member generosity. But the knife budget during the Summer months is stretched pretty thin and priorities had to be made. I opted for the Hartshead Barlow instead. While it would have been nice to have the First American Lamb Foot, the Hartshead is just as precious I think., so I'm happy.
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.

I"ve always liked a sheepsfoot on a knife, so I've gravitated towards stockmans. Then I disovered the wharncliffe (thanks to these forums) ... and I've become a fan of it - it does everything a sheepfoot does, but looks better. My all time fave is the Case muskrat now... size isn't too big (I carry it with dress pants for work), it's fairly thin, and every one I have snaps like a gator - considering late model Case production knives, highest percentage of getting one with good snap on ALL blades lies with the muskrat pattern)...

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.
