    They don't even have matching glassware Kevin, but the food is top notch! :D :thumbsup: Cool pic, those switch-blade combs haven't changed since I was a kid! :D :thumbsup:

    :D :thumbsup:

    Same here pal, mine mostly stays in the bathroom though, if my hair is long enough to comb it's way past time to go to the barbers! :D I do comb out my side whiskers before shaving though ;) :thumbsup:

    Jack I like that this discussion is already going on. I like the natural smooth white bone and you know I really like Ebony too. I haven’t seen any natural Camel Bone that has not been dyed that I recall. So I really can’t say how it would look. I had a conversation with Bill on Saturday morning about how they did all the Natural Smooth White Bone for the knives at the Rendezvous. He also explained the process that makes the difference between the Primitive Bone and the Natural Smooth White Bone. It was very interesting. Oh yeah in all this talk let’s not forget that we’ve never had a Guardians release that was a Bigun!! Yet!!! :D

    Ed, my man! :thumbsup: Not only do you have excellent taste in cutlery your taste in your choices for breakfast are right on! :thumbsup: That’s a breakfast that would be right at home in any southern home! Jimmy Dean "HOT" Sausage is great stuff! :thumbsup: :D

    Got a large Kent comb in the bathroom next to the Brylcreem (also English!), and a small one for my shirt pocket. I use the folding comb if I wear a t-shirt, and it goes in my left front pocket with the knife of the day. :cool:

    The first week of my vacation I did quite well in keeping up with this thread. But during the second week of vacation - last week - I hardly looked at it from Tuesday until today. So I'm back in superficial catch-up mode.:rolleyes:


    Thanks, Mark. :) Fetching photo of your stag HHB! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Thanks, @JaxBaron. :)

    Thanks, Harvey. :) My rosewood, stag, and ebony lambsfoots have all been on vacation with me the past couple of years and now have some very special memories attached to them. :cool::) Fine photo of your Damascus snakewood! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, @cudgee.:) I was quite surprised by the effect of that low almost-horizontal sunlight hitting the rosewood. :eek:

    Thanks for the kind and amusing words, Dennis! :thumbsup::D I think UJ and I were both a little light headed after reading "black ... pale ale" on the can. :confused::rolleyes:

    I appreciate your encouragement, Jack, and am glad you survived your hike. :)

    Fantastic photos of your hike, Jack; that stag HHB sure is photogenic in the great outdoors! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup: Do you know anything about the stone walkway? Who built it? When? From whence to where does it run?

    Some wondrous wood you had last Wednesday, Ron! :cool::cool::thumbsup:

    W:eek:W, that's a bountiful harvest, Jack! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Thanks for the review of your 2-blade lambsfoot, ED, and for proposing your theory; informative post! :cool::thumbsup::cool:

    Cool story, Dan! :cool::cool:;)

    Thanks, David. :) And thanks for re-posting those wooden people; it reminded me that I want to try my hand at whittling mini versions of one or more of those! :thumbsup::thumbsup:;) Enjoy the festival!! :p

    John, the arrangement of the knives in the pic and the fact that you're back in school make me think you've earned an "A" for your knowledge and taste regarding lambsfoot knives! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Cracker Jack one last time before I rotate my carries tomorrow:

    I think my lambsfoot has secret powers ....
    I woke up and found myself holding it in front of this sign.
    This Guardian thing is getting out of hand I think :D

    I looked all over the 'net but to no avail. Would someone please explain the meaning of the small square sign? Inquiring minds would like to know!

    From what I found it is a sign for the River Valley Scenic Drive in NewBrunswick/Canada. Please take that info with a grain of salt. I could be completely wrong! Lol.

    When the Sambar stag restrictions first hit the Sheffield cutlers, some (Trevor Ablett most notably) were using camel bone as a substitute, with some colour and jigging. I didn't think that looked very good, but the smooth white camel bone looked good (check out Otter's use of it). I think Wright's have used it before, which is a big plus, but we'll see. I'd like to see it at some point, but I'd have to see what Wright's think (they might not want to order a large quantity of a material they can't otherwise use for example). I also think a Big 'Un might be worth considering, though it may be too large for some folks. Got a few other ideas too ;) :thumbsup:

    Great to see you back Gary, but you can't spend your vacation trying to keep up with this thread my friend :D Cracker Jack is looking good in that excellent pic :) :thumbsup:

    :eek: :D And you even got Sheffield weather from the look of it Dan! :D Cool pic :thumbsup:

    Morning Guardians, hope everyone had a great weekend, and that your week gets off to a good start :) I thought I'd treat myself to a Double Lambsfoot Day ;) :thumbsup:

    Thanks Duncan, I figured that if I accidentally hit my thumb with that hammer, it wouldn't hurt too much! :D Have a good week mate :) :thumbsup:

    Hi OD
    It’s a very small town in New Brunswick Canada. Population very small, about 800 +.

    We are vacationing in Prince Edward Island. Yesterday, as we drove through New Brunswick we saw the sign.
    I stopped in the rain to take a pic.:D

    My wife and kids were amused at my antics lol :D
