    Thank you for the kind words, GT! Great to see you posting more frequently, here and elsewhere!

    Greg, your efforts and those of the others you mentioned are laudable, the index was quite the project and will continue to serve those who come here, seeking information, very well. At this point, as I feel that this thread has evolved into more of a community thread (not an indictment, in case a disclaimer is needed), I think attempting to index content from the last 6-8 months, maybe even a year, might be close to impossible or, at the very least, quite difficult. I think the index, as it stands, is an immensely useful tool and probably requires no revisions, unless references to Jack's excellent SFOs are required.

    I love the file work on this. It is magnificent. I have in transit a similar lambs foot. I hope it will be here soon. I don't think it is as elaborate as yours. Good catch.

    Thanks for your kind words and observations on the index, @JohnDF, @Jack Black, @cigarrodog, and @Pàdruig. Much appreciated.

    Today was a buffalo horn day. Its first task was opening up a package of hot links for lunch:


    Having completed its most important task of the day—hot links are tasty; cardboard and plastic are not: the hot links had to be freed—it got to relax a bit while I enjoyed some iced coffee on this very hot day:


    And, finally, because it's Monday and the recycling is picked up in the morning, it got to break down cardboard boxes. I'm pretty sure that's its favorite task:


    You can see from the light scratches in this last photo that this knife puts in a lot of work. It seems to love it, though, and just keeps on tackling more.

    Have a great week, everyone.

    Dang it! I picked out these posts last night, but am only getting around to commenting now. What ever happened to my efficiency??
    Harvey, I got a knot in the pit of my stomach when I read you couldn't find your senator! :eek::( But later I found a post in which what appears to be your senator appears with a cool flashlight. So the lost lamb has been found? :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    That Crookes lambsfoot is a jewel on its bed of diamonds! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Sounds like a good knife pic principle, John. :):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    My lunch Saturday was very enjoyable, eating yellow tortilla chips with raspberry chipotle salsa my wife found somewhere. :):cool:

    Somehow, I'm not buying that, Dave, but I love the lamb in sheepskin clothing! :p:D

    Good advice, Harvey. :thumbsup::thumbsup::) I guess each of us is our own worst critic in knife photography (as well as plenty of other arenas).
    I like those Cooper's Dip ads; I would have bought it! ;)

    Thanks for the positive remarks, Jack. :)
    Those Barlows and their britches are beguiling! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks for all of your contributions to making this the best thread on the forums, Joshua, and I'm sure you'll be welcomed here again whenever you have an opportunity to visit! :):thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Numbers 6:24-26

    That's a potent pair, Jack! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    :thumbsup::D:thumbsup: Skoll looks like a fire wolf in this shot!! :cool::cool::thumbsup::eek:

    Not only are you a nice guy who knows knives and posts stunning photos, but you're also a "moth whisperer"?? :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup::D

    Thanks for the support you give all of us, Dennis! :cool::thumbsup::cool:
    That blond horn of yours is so distinctive; sure glad you decided to keep it! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks for the update! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: I hope your surgery/rehab is trouble-free. Your stag lambsfoot is handsome as heck!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    What a great story with a happy ending due to the global "reach" of Yorkshire! :p:thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    And Jack survives a similar key escapade! :eek::thumbsup::D
    Maybe we should expand the name of our august organization to Guardians of the Lambsfoot and Keepers of the Keys! :rolleyes:

    OMG OG!! Breathtaking! :eek::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Glad you could get out for some reconnaissance, John. :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Thanks for the pics; it's good to see the rosewood on the river! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    RALF is looking better than ever, Jeff! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Whose idea was the hiatus, yours or RALF's?? ;)

    I hope you have an enjoyable and memorable time with your visitors, Jack! :):):cool:

    OK, the rest of you American Guardians can stop worrying - it was I! :(:oops::oops:
    I can make up some excuses, though. (Let me know if any of them are plausible. :rolleyes:)
    - before ordering, I happened to read both E.E. Hale's "The Man Without a Country" and K. Vonnegut's A Man Without a Country.
    - I had heard that America had been made great again, so I thought my country needed no introduction.
    - I ordered 2 days before my first cataract surgery, so I was somewhat preoccupied.
    - I wanted to do something that would let me secure my place in the annals (anals?) of the Guardians.

    OK, moving on to my Lambsfoot of this Week ... The schedule says we're back to the start of the alphabet, so Black Jack, the 2018 ebony Guardians Lambsfoot is my sidekick for the week. (Special Honor: Black Jack will accompany me to the 50-year reunion of my high school graduating class.)

    - GT

    I find them all plausible. :thumbsup:
    That Black Beauty is an appropriate tote to a 50th reunion. A black tie affair?
    My 40th would be this year. Only went to the 20th. Hope you have a great time.

    Thanks GT. I'm afraid possession of one half of a moth wing would make me a mighty poor whisperer! :D
    Black Jack has some fine ebony my friend.

    @cigarrodog - Harvey I just now saw your post about losing the dama lamb senator. Did you find it? I'm hoping like GT that the photo with the flashlight means you did indeed find it.

    Always chasing the Sun, GT. :D

    The Rosewood likes going to the mountains.

    Hope you have a fun time, GT. I've never been to any of my high school reunions, nobody there I really want to see again. ;)

    Hi GT. I had that same awful feeling when I misplaced the Senator. My wife, though, is usually happy when I do, because she knows I’m motivated to clean out the various, virtual hoarder class piles that I create. After I did that, and still couldn’t find the Senator, I next went to my studio...I mean my garage, and then found the precious tin underneath, of course, yet another pile. Major relief. The Dami Senator is my favorite Lambsfoot. Thank you for the empathy.

    Next to the Senator, my favorite Lambsfoot is the 2018 Ebony. Don’t have one, just love it. Your Black Jack is stellar.

    When I was a kid, I read some version of the Man Without a Country and came away saddened by his fate. It was the first time I was introduced to the notion of “be careful what you ask for.”

    I hope you have recovered from your ocular torture at the Dr’s office. Have fun at the Reunion.

    It was mine, I'm afraid. Too many nice knives and so few pockets! Even though I double down by carrying a Cadet and (usually) RALF at home, plus a different Cadet and a larger knife when I go out, sometimes I just gotta carry something different. With D-Day being this past week, I was carrying my late '40s Camillus #12 jack to honor the heroes.

    Morning folks, just having some toast and marmalade at Leeds central station before I board the train to go and meet Duncan in York. Marmalade was a factor in our last encounter (there's a thread somewhere), so it seemed appropriate! :D I'm looking forward to seeing the big guy, and hoping the forecast of apocalyptic weather is somewhat exaggerated. See you all soon I hope :thumbsup:
