    Thanks, Dave! They're all great! Hope yours arrive soon!
    Thank you very much, Jack!! I think everyone is overdosing on Knife Knirvana !:D:thumbsup:
    Yes, I didn't see it till you mentioned it! Thank you very much!:)
    Thank you for the kind words, Greg! Haven't seen a lemon yet!:thumbsup:
    And the first one's the hardest.:confused::D
    Thank you so very much, Dwight!:):thumbsup:
    Fantastic, José! Good things run in pairs!:cool::thumbsup: looks like the stag matches nicely on both sides!
    Thank you very much, Gary, I am very tickled with it!
    :p:thumbsup:
    Thank you very much, José!:):thumbsup:
    What a Wonderful Wooden Won for Wednesday, Vince!:D
    I must say, a great way to start the day! A bit of the First Fruits!:cool::thumbsup:
    Very easy to look at!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Should make your day Rosie!:cool::thumbsup: Such great covers!
    Oh man! A tripple threat! Very nice, Dwight!;):thumbsup:
    The reason I need to start going to the gym!:D
    ...keeps the Dr. away! Looks good, John!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Tis a burden to carry such a fine example!:cool::thumbsup: Nice choice!

    And the grand Stag Stands alone! You are a rebel, Jack!:):thumbsup:
    Wow! What a beauty, Harvey! That ebony is sublime!
    Glad you let Emmylou out to play! She must be well balanced for the lumberjack to be able to lift! OR, she's going to wait for the right moment, and then spring into action to strike a fatal blow of revenge for all trees ever cut down!:eek::p:thumbsup:
    Looks like an interesting choice! Haven't found an IPA I've cared for yet, just too hoppy. But I'll try some mentioned by Taylor and others here.
    Agree with the others, such great color range on that one!:):thumbsup:

    Can't see you going amiss with either!;):thumbsup: Both are exquisite!
    Great shot, Tyler! Playground duty?:cool::thumbsup:
    Nice, Rachel! To quote Paul and John, that's an 'Eight Days a Week' kinda blade!;):thumbsup:
    That aught about do it!! Nice stand in until then!:cool::thumbsup:
    Awsome shot!
    Is that the reflection of the sky, or have you already applied a patina?
    With the blade text being stamped, it's nice to know even after a patina is developed!:cool::thumbsup:
    Great photos, Dwight!:eek::thumbsup: Love it.
    And I've called a local Cryptozoologist, and he confirmed that is a knife packing North American Bark-ing Armadillo! Cool little fella!:D:thumbsup:
    A fine way to end the day! Looks great!
    Wonderful shot, Dave! Indeed, Pure Prairie League Gold! :cool::thumbsup:
    Wow, what a great foursome! Nice shot, Charlie!:):thumbsup:
    Fantastic! And what a looker, Preston! Congratulations!:)
    Nice looking Stag!
    I use to love those wafers, hadn't seen them in a long time. :thumbsup:
    Such a grand photo, Gary! Beautiful colors all about!:):thumbsup:
    Oh, man! You certainly have bragging rights there Harvey!! Your photo captured it wonderfully!:cool::thumbsup:
    Congratulations, Gary! I'd say it was worth the (grueling, neverending)wait!:cool::thumbsup: Look forward to some more photos!,
    Very nice! Congratulations!:cool::thumbsup:

    Good catch Jose!

    I try to...:)

    Great story. My dad bought me one of those cheap travel shavers for my birthday and said "try that".:rolleyes:

    Dwight and Rachel, great looking knives you have there. It really looks like you use professional photo kit. :)

    Here in the UK it used to be 2 weeks but can be 4 weeks. In my job at the place I work it's now 6 weeks notice and there's been talk of extending it to 8 weeks. :rolleyes:
    That's a great shot you've caught there. :thumbsup:


    Hey Jack, I'm not a 'craft ale' person at all, but I tried some of that Hazey Daze a few weeks ago and it tasted like Lilt or Tango. Great if you wanted a soft drink, not so much if you wanted a beer.
    The only IPA I like was one called 'Londinium', a black IPA brewed by Roosters in Knaresborough, otherwise I can't stand them. They even altered the recipes of some of the established beers like Pedigree to make them more hoppy and "modern" IPA-like. :rolleyes:

    No this is the food thread. :D

    Great to see you've got yours to Preston. That looks like nice stag. :thumbsup:

    Hi GT, "Dan Dare-Pilot of the Future" was a comic book hero from the 1950's sci-fi comic 'Eagle'. The Eagle ran from 1950 to 1969 and Dan Dare was it's main character until 1967.
    He was a daring pilot who flew for Interplanet Starfleet in the 1990's and his main adversary was the Mekon from Venus.
    In reality he was the product of the Reverend Marcus Morris from Preston in Lancashire and was illustrated by Frank Hampson. He's a very traditional character; a product of the WWII British stiff upper lip Dunkirk Spirit culture. He was dreamt up by Rev' Morris as a counterpoint to the US comics that made it over to the UK during WWII which the Rev' thought were overly bloodthirsty and violent for young boys.
    The comic was very popular and would often sell out all it's runs.

    The bust of Dan Dare, at the Atkinson Museum in Southport.

    Now GT, is that mighty fine Hartshead of yours going to get a name like that mighty fine Lam Jack (and the others)? :D

    Good morning/afternoon, Guardians!
    Great photos of the Hartshead Barlows, everyone!:thumbsup:

    Sincere thank you to @Jack Black for his work and vision on this stunning Stag Barlow! I hope to post more pics and a bit of a review this weekend when work lets up. For now, let's just say, I'm thrilled!!

    Thanks, Jack!!:cool::D;)

    Great picture of your Barlow on the turf. It was a beautiful night last night, I enjoyed the cool evening for a change.

    Looking great, Vince. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Great photo, the book is a perfect sentiment. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Oh, I wouldn't even know which of those two to pick, the Barlow is extraordinary and the Ebony is a dream. :cool: :thumbsup:
    Hope all is going well with you, Dennis. :)

    That horn could light up the darkest day. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Now why did I not ever think of that? Great idea!

    Wow! :eek:
    That stag has some beautiful color!!! :cool: :thumbsup:

    Good morning Guardians
    I was really busy yesterday but managed to at least visit a few times and hit a lot of "like" buttons.
    Despite having some very fancy Lambsfoot knives now, the rosewood still remains my favorite.
    Hope everybody has a fantastic day today. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Thanks Jack. :)

    Beauts, for sure! Congrats!

    Out of step, or a step ahead? ;) :D

    Congratulations. The lambsfoot pattern certainly does have a way of working its way into your heart.

    Thanks Harvey. And, wow, congratulations!

    Thanks OG. Emmylou's looking in fine form! :thumbsup:

    Hear, hear!

    Thanks Ron!

    Yup, those'll do!

    Jack, I'm sure it's been discussed before, but I don't remember. Is there a story behind the ebony model? It looks to have standard bolsters, but has the REAL LAMB FOOT etch. Is it perhaps a prototype for the 2018 Guardians edition, or is it much older from a time when they were regularly doing the etch, or...?

    Not yet. :( Keep hanging in there, just like your Hartshead is doing. :)

    :thumbsup:

    Lovely color on that horn, Dave! :thumbsup:

    Congrats!

    I've run out of time this morning. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up on the rest of the posts I wanted to respond to later today. In the mean time, inspired by @Prester John, I'll also be carrying an old friend for Thursday, shown here in an old photo from about this time in 2016:
