    Great black and tan pairing Dwight! :thumbsup: :)

    Thanks for the Black and Tan compliment Jack! :) The stag does match fairly well on your gifted Hartshead Jack. However, I do believe your EDC Hartshead matches better. :thumbsup: I agree whole heartedly with your comments above Jack. The key statement being, "I am perfectly happy to have different types of stag on either side, so long as they both have some character." One thing that I might add from my personal point of view, when I am lucking enough to get to hand pick stag knives in person, is reasonably equal thickness from Mark to Pile sides. However, I by no means would place that above character! :thumbsup::D I would say as an observation judging from all the photos that have been posted here, and the knives that I have personally received, the vintage Sambar that you have had Wrights to use on our knives is very nice quality. :thumbsup: Sure it is possible that they could have maybe matched some knives more closely, but overall they have done a terrific job! :thumbsup: :)

    Long day yesterday, about 13 hours with the drive. It was a good day and started off with seeing this just as I left, about a mile from my house. Yes, that is yucca:mad:
    So today I'm not fiddling around
    Lots to do, have a great day Guardians!
    Thanks Mark, the book is older, published 1988. The prints in the book are well done and the history of the program makes it a gem.
    Mark, the background for that wonderful Ironwoood is very creative...well done:thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:
    Very good, wish I had thought of that!!!:D
    Glenn, thanks for that photo, makes your effort and work even more impressive!
    Great photo...as usual. Thanks for the comment about Dutch. When I was in the Army, I had the pleasure to work with some Marines. All were, task orientated, hard working, dedicated.
    You bet, he will lick your face off!!!:p Fine photo of you Senator
    I don't, Kevin...thanks for the offer, much appreciated. Great picture, but isn't that a little over the carryng load for that VW Type 2:eek:
    Gary, I didn't notice that you had split the posts, I have a low power level of observationo_O:rolleyes:o_O
    Thanks, Mitch, I know that I have that LP somewhere...I'll try and dig it out and post a follow up/sequel
    Sure, they all count! If you like it, it's good!
    We can hope, we can hope!
    Epic effort, Jack! Great shot of that HHB
    Parsley, rosemary and thyme...ebony and rosewood. Goes well together!
    A couple of fine shots that is a handsome
    Fine photo and fine horn on that lambfoot!

    @Jack Black Thank you. Happy that yours’ and David’s day was a splendid one. A six mile walk..You have a lot of stamina or I’ve gotten older. I suspect the latter.:) A nice bevy of Lambs displayed.

    @pjsjr Thank you Preston. That’s a wonderful “fiddling around” image.

    @dc50 Dave, your Lambfoot images really bring the drama with those colorful backgrounds,

    @Fodderwing Dwight, the dynamic duo Lambfoot Image is especially nice, because of the detail in the shadow area.

    Good Morning Guardians.

    Thank you, Dwight Using Lindas art as backgrounds seems to give a unique perspective.:thumbsup::D

    I like those "3 Commandments", Jack. ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: When I work with middle school kids, I usually tell them we'll be guided by the 3 Cs: Cleanliness, Courtesy, and Common Sense. Almost any behavior of which I don't approve can be seen as a violation of at least one of the 3 Cs.

    Definitely good stuff, Taylor! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I look forward to glimpses of Sköll, John (despite the story about the kid who cried "Wolf" too often :rolleyes:). :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for your nice remark about the Union Jack, Dennis. :)
    I can believe the yucca stalks would draw a boy's attention! ;):thumbsup: The yucca in my back yard is in full bloom right now, and several of the stalks are 6-7 feet tall!

    Impressive new lambsfoot, Dennis! Congrats on that Big'un, and plaudits to Charitable Charlie! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    "Mesmerizing" is a good word for it, Vince, especially in that bowl! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Very impressive, Charlie! :eek::thumbsup::cool: You could equip a baseball team with lambsfoots. :D

    + 5K! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Irresistible Ironwood, José! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    The bark on that limb and the pattern/color of your Damascus blade are so similar! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Great choice, Mark; that Ironwood has sole! ;):cool::thumbsup:

    John, I had already selected your two photos so I could remark that, since my wife is out of town currently, I didn't have to hear her say, "Boys and their toys!" with that tone in her voice. Then I find that you get some of that at home, too! :rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Small but splendid, Ron! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    I almost ignored this pic, Dwight, but upon further reflection, I HAD to express my appreciation for the superb quality of both knife and photo! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Congrats on that championship pair!! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Ace pic, FBC! :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    Truckin', like the do-dah man. Once told me "You've got to play your hand"
    Sometimes your cards ain't worth a Lamb, if you don't lay'em down...

    Definitely the All-Stars of this thread (and others) for the past few weeks!! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks, Matt. :) Here's a shot of Union Jack on vacation last summer:

    Thanks, Dave. The first one (which I replaced because of a defective etch) had magnificent stag on the mark side, but I am very pleased with both sides of this one.

    They still do... :D

    With only three Lambs, you're going to hear a lot of echo. :D

    I'm sure that's the way it is with all of our hobbies, women (excluding Rachel and some others) don't understand, unless it's purses and jewelry. ;)
