Good Evening Guardians
I grill a lot of meat because...
It gives me an excuse to use my Lambsfoot.
KETO & Lambsfoot!
Good evening Guardians!
And after a hard day...
Thanks for the kind words and comments folks, I’ll have to make a proper post and acknowledgments later, as I’m on the train out from Melbourne at the moment.
I stayed at a mates place in the city last night, after having a great catch up dinner with some friends I used to work with.
David @donn , I thought you’d like to know I used my Hartshead knyf to kytte up my Ploughman’s brekky, before heading out into the cold and rain this morning:
Yep, those are some real English Pork Pies!
They must have been made with faire buttyes of porke, hewed and ground welle, because I was well impressed - they were very tasty.
Christian @kamagong , that’s an interesting observation on the clean and square joints. I seem to remember reading somewhere (maybe in Levine’s translation of part of Jean-Jacques Perret’s great work, L’Art du Coutelier), that clean and square joints, in addition to being more expensive, are not as strong as joints where the bolsters fully enclose and overlap the blade tang.
So I wondered if they had been used on many Lambsfoots before, being an inexpensive working knife pattern and all.
I checked back over some of my old archive pics, and did indeed find a prior example, on a particularly fine Lambsfoot knife by Harrison Brothers and Howson. Here’s the old post:

Fantastic knife, Bill, I’m glad to see you were looked after, my friend.
Cheers Dave, yep, we use the same word, although it’s pronounced more like ‘Bewdy’!
I’ll be looking forward to seeing more of your thoughts on the pattern and your superb photography over in this thread, my friend.
Melbourne reputedly has the highest number of Greek speakers of any city in the world outside Greece.
The part of the city I stayed in is apparently a sister city to Sparta.
I found this interesting statue while walking around:
Wow that looks great, Barry! Outstanding work!
Outstanding Barry. I love it!
Thank you Chin. Most interesting about Greece's relationship with Australia! Always enjoy your posts my friend.
It sounds like you’re experiencing quite an ordeal. Very sorry to hear that. My wish is that the corner you’ve turned is leading you further and further on your road to recovery.
Congratulations on getting your Ironwood Lambsfoot. That’s a handsome Lambsfoot.
@Jack Black - Your Aurapole Compass is a thing of beauty. Residing in a cool pocket watch case. A fine accompaniment to your out of this world Waynorth Lambsfoot.
@Foddering Congratulations on the Trevor Ablett acquisition.
@gunstockjack There’s a couple items in the image that certainly has my attention.
Congrats on the new arrivals after all this time, Jack! Good looking pair of American lambs!
Beautiful pic, Harvey!
Ain't that the truth! I was just recently going over in my mind all my knives that I haven't dropped... it was the shorter list! But mine are all users, so who cares... after the first ding!
Those are all good tips! Thanks for sharing!
Stunning pic right there!
Congrats on finally getting it in hand. Looks like a wait well worthwhile!
Oh my, I love that Ironwood on your knife! Congrats on that one!
Thank you kindly.
Day is Done.
Received my pair of Charlie’s Lambsfoots. Very impressed with these two! Charlie and GEC did us proud to bring these to us avid collectors. Glad to be able to include these in my Lambsfoot collection.
Glad they tickle your UK roots, Russell!!!
Thank you very much Ron!!
They do indeed Charlie!
@cudgee, when replying to someone, you need to make sure you type outside the quoted post, otherwise your reply just gets jumbled into the previous post, isn't displayed, and can't be easily read or replied to
Thank you Kevin We believe it is indeed the first US-made Lambsfoot, though @herder has previously brought our attention to this knife from 1905
Cool pic of your '19 my friend
Thanks a lot Russell
Thank you Ron
Very sorry to hear that you have been so ill my friend, and very pleased to hear things are finally beginning to get better. Thank you for the great pics of your '19
Congratulations Dwight, but this is the LAMBSFOOT thread
Ubercool Barry (I think that's the highest level of cool ) Well done
You earned it my friend, cheers
A fascinating post, as always, Chin Not sure how you managed that on your phone!
Thank you Harvey, the case is integral to the compass I have an older one I'll post a photo of later
Many congratulations Russell
Morning Guardians, hope everyone has had a good week I thought I'd carry these two today, a new friend from @waynorth, and an old friend from Wright's
My wounded Hartshead Barlow. Not so dramatic but the tip is definitely different from what it should be
Sorry again about your mishap Christian, but it looks like you did a good repair job
