    Thank you Dwight. @Jack Black should be credited for the answers being offered here. It’s a “Sheldon knife” friction folder. A basic tradesman’s knife with some sort of composite material. Jack has mentioned the material, but it escapes me now, as well as the “Current”Tang stamp., which is either the factory or the shop. It’s also stamped Albert Oates.

    Celebrating my birthday early with family. My grandfather gave me a doozy of a present. A Pre-64 Winchester model 88 in 308 Winchester!!! He bought the gun in 1960 for $65. Shot a lot of black tails with it.

    Well, Happy Birthday, Taylor!
    Was shooting my Sako .243 Winchester myself today. .308 is a great calibre.

    Hello Guardians!

    I’ve got quite a busy weekend on, so I’ll have to catch up with a proper post and acknowledgments later. There’s been some interesting conversational points raised too about the construction of these knives.

    For the moment, I’d just like to file a report with GT @5K Qs that my pastie investigations are progressing well.;):D:p

    (But my photo framing ability is apparently deteriorating!:D:eek:)

    Mah knife did the slicing honours. These are from two of the four bakeries in my small country town - a meat Cornish pastie, and a more modern, square shaped Aussie vegetable pastie.

    Although the vegetable pastie appeared to just be carrots, onion and potato, I preferred it, as the ingredients tasted like they were made from fresh vegetables, rather than a frozen premix.

    Ol’ Reliable handled the cutting chores with aplomb.

    LOL, yep my first one was free as well!:p:D

    How did I end up with 9 Lambsfoot knives?!!

    Enjoying a Bavarian brew with my Hartshead on hand, before checking out a Finnegans Wake reading group in Melbourne, I was invited to.

    I apologize for posting this again but @Jack Black asked what the cover material was on this I.XL is . It is rosewood and a very nice rosewood. 03235204-45EB-4658-819E-179E51F61631.jpeg

    Check out the Technical sub-forum if you're having difficulties mate :thumbsup:

    Excellent pic Mark, and well done :thumbsup:

    Looking forward to seeing your pics Vince, the Rosewood Lamb'll get the job done ;) :thumbsup:

    To use the Lambsfoot is to love it ;) :thumbsup:

    Aye, they don't chuck much aht in Yorkshire! :D Thanks for showing those Rachel :thumbsup:

    I have some gardening to do myself today :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D Thanks pal :) :thumbsup:

    That brings back some memories Kevin, the Silent Lambsfoot :) I think I must have given away a dozen of those knives, and everyone who has had them has loved them :thumbsup:

    Remarkably similar to some knives sold under the Taylor's Eye Witness brand.

    No, it isn't made by Wright's Dave, though at least one YouTube reviewer thinks it was :rolleyes:

    Great to see you here my friend, great pic of your Lambsfoot :) :thumbsup:

    Yes, there's no legal requirement here to mark the country of origin, but I think it is a contract knife made in the Far East :thumbsup:

    They're a good user for sure, particularly for someone who wants a stainless knife. Nice pic Kevin :thumbsup:

    :D :D :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Whitby sell them, they may even have contracted them, but they don't manufacture :thumbsup:

    Great pic Dave! :D :thumbsup:

    Congratulations Ben, that's a nice one :) :thumbsup:
