    Thanks again Dennis, I hope you're doing OK buddy :thumbsup:

    Thanks Harvey, I had a great day, but a tiring one :) The weather was very unsettled, one minute warm and sunny, the next there was a heavy downpour, and like that until late afternoon :rolleyes: Because of that, we changed the route of our walk, and I didn't get as many pics as I'd have liked because I didn't want to get rain in my camera! :eek: I'll post a few later though :thumbsup:

    Cool pic Dennis :thumbsup:

    Nice pics :thumbsup:

    That's special Ron :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Gary, stag is certainly very traditional on a Barlow :thumbsup:

    UJ never looked better GT ;) :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much my friend :) my is still a bit sore, but thankfully it didn't 'go' :eek: My feet sure do ache though! :D :thumbsup:

    That looks great Ed, how do you find the larger model? :thumbsup:

    I usually pinch open my Lambsfoot blades, but that's the way I use the nail-nick :) Makes a difference have a nice deep nick :thumbsup:

    That's a smashing photo Harvey, I hope you enjoyed the beer :) :thumbsup:

    Lovely pic Dave :) I wasn't far from the Blue John caverns of Derbyshire yesterday (thought you and Linda might find the link interesting) :) :thumbsup:

    Glad to hear it's wearing you in Dan ;) :thumbsup:

    It might be worth a shot mate! :D ;) Nice pic there :) :thumbsup:

    Wow, you have certainly jumped in with both feet Ed! :D Nice to hear (in your other post) that the pull on the pen is not a problem :thumbsup:

    The longer length of the blade certainly makes them easier to open I think :thumbsup:

    Me neither, same steel and HT though :thumbsup: That's unusual that the blade on yours is harder to open though Dave :confused: :thumbsup:

    Edit - Apologies for the clumsy multi-quote folks :oops: :thumbsup:

    Fantastic pics Dan :thumbsup:

    Looking good Kevin :thumbsup:

    Hope you can get out soon Dennis :) :thumbsup:

    Sounds like you're going to have a great weekend my friend :) Cool pic :thumbsup:

    I didn't :thumbsup: I think that the larger blades are generally what makes them easier to open, but while the springs have the same steel and HT, they could vary from the smaller ones I guess because of the extra mass :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    Hi Guardians! Writing this from Glasgow. Typical Scottish day in August; rain and cold. Oh well, just had a dram of scotch to ward off the chills and off to the shops in search of a Lambfoot. Didn’t have any luck in Ireland.

    Where were you shooting those great photos? Looks like the ancient farm that belonged to my wife, Kathleen’s grand parents in Termon near Letterkenny, Donegal. We met up with her cousins two days ago and downed a few Guinness’s. Lovely people, the Kelly’s.

    Shame the weather didn't fully cooperate for you Jack, but it still looked like a lovely hike. Beautiful photos!

    I've only had it (the "Big UN") for 2 1/2 days Jack so no chance to use it yet. However, compared to the other Lambfoot knives I have it's a whopper in the hand. I think I'm going to like it quite well but I'm telling ya that I like the Standard Lambfoot you sent along with the Hartshead better than any of them. Yes, even the Hartshead. A little polish here and a little bolster buffing there along with just a touch of Super Glue, and the Standard Lambfoot is perfect.:thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians. Lambsfoot took care of my most important daily task in the morning with aplomb! Ventilating that coffee lid ;)

    [​IMG]

    I like the coffee to freely flow and those tiny holes never let enough air through :)

    @Jack Black - Thank you for taking us with you on your walk, Jack. It was so relaxing. What a treasure to have access to all that pastoral splendor.

    Good Morning Guardians.

    Thanks a lot Ron, those two look great together :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you my friend :) As soon as I saw that fat trout, I thought 'I've got to get a pic for John! :D On this pic, you can see a smaller trout nearby, even that was worth catching :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    Lovely ebony there :) :thumbsup:

    It's been wet and miserable here too :( Hope you find a Lambsfoot Bill :thumbsup:

    That is in the Derbyshire Peak District John, going down the River Derwent from Grindleford to Baslow via Calver, and then across the Chatsworth Estate to Bakewell. I have friends named Kelly in both Ireland and Scotland :) :thumbsup:

    Thank you very much Mike, it was certainly better than staying in the city - and the weather is worse today! :eek: ;) :thumbsup:

    Sorry for cocking up my multi-quote Ed (fixed it now) The Big 'Un is certainly a much more substantial knife. but that's great to hear you're so pleased with the other one :) That's still my favourite Lambsfoot frame :) :thumbsup:

    Nice pic Ed :) :thumbsup:

    Very good Mike! :D :thumbsup:

    Thanks Harvey, there's some nice countryside close to where I live now in Leeds, but I grew up with the Peak District just up the road, and I do miss it :) That's a wonderful photo, what great stag :) :thumbsup:

    Despite the rain here, I've been picking blackberries in my garden :) I wouldn't normally pick them in the wet, but the brambles were heaving with ripe fruit, and I picked about 5lbs :)There'll be more in a few days :thumbsup:

    Another pic from yesterday :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black - Thank you Jack. Love to see a pic of those blackberrit’s with a Lambsfoot. Do you make preserves?

    I usually just make pies and crumbles Harvey, but there are a lot this year. I've put most of the ones I picked today in the freezer, and I have about a pound I'll make a crumble with in the next couple of days. I bought some strawberries today, so I might have a few blackberries with those :)

    [​IMG]

    These are just from the patch in my gardens, but there are brambles all over here, and so few people pick them these days :confused: Crazy, they are the most expensive summer fruits in the supermarket here! :rolleyes:

    A few pics I prepared earlier ;) :D :thumbsup:
