    What brought me to the Lambsfoot? "I came for the knives and stayed for the friendship.":D

    It was the spring of 2014, and our pal @Jack Black was posting pictures of this simple but elegant knife. I've always been attracted to classic working knives from around the world, and thought a Lambsfoot would be a nice one to have. I found a USA based site that sells lots of international made knives and ordered one. I decided to order it in stag, just because I didn't have any knives in that material at the time.

    What came in the mail was such an abomination. Shoddily made, and absolutely the ugliest, pithiest stag I'd ever seen in my life. I'd link to the thread I started about it, but all the picture links are broken. Here's a taste:

    Then I got a message from a member here, @Nal0n , who asked for my address and sent me the A.Wright & Sons Lambfoot big'un that I posted on the first page of this thread.

    It was such a kind gesture, and part of the reason I associate the Lambsfoot pattern with friendship and generosity, even before Jack started this epic thread.

    Very quotable Rachel! :D :thumbsup: I'd forgotten about @Nal0n 's act of kindness, but certainly remember that one you got in 'stag'! :eek: Glad you've stuck around :thumbsup:

    Picked up this Acme Guide whistle the other day :)

    Thanks Jon !
    My little friend "Chippy" :) . I met him at the Upper Canada Migratory Bird sanctuary close to where I live. I went back twice and we saw it again around the same spot.

    Ha! If y'all had seen the difference between the pictures on the website and what showed up... I've spared you the detailed pictures, but let's just say the problems weren't just cosmetic.
    Very kind of you, Gary. I'm not sure what you mean about us Texans needing help. :D If you're talking about the heat, I agree. Over 47 days of over 100 degrees so far. :eek:
