    Thanks Gary! I’m sorry to hear about your tree problem. It’s one that I’m all to familiar with myself. If it’s any consolation it sounds as if it could have been much worse.

    We wouldn't want poor Jack's head to explode, would we?
    Well, thank you very much, GT. :)

    Quite the day in this thread!

    @cigarrodog Happy Birthday Harvey! :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black , wonderful rapid giveaway. Some great pictures posted as entries, and it was fun to follow it this morning until its conclusion. Congrats @5K Qs & @r8shell !

    L'il Lambsfoot seems to have the same kind of problem Jack's HHB has... It won't be put aside and insists on being with me most days. Recycled photo from the book thread this morning, but I've been very well served with this little guy lately. Action's smoothing out nicely, slowly forming a patina, and just plain comfy to hold and use.

    I’m late going through today’s posts, but I’m thrilled at how it turned out. Huge thanks as always to @Jack Black ,and congratulations to @5K Qs and @r8shell! What a select trio!

    I’ll be carrying this Lambsfoot for the next several days.

    I'm sure our kids look at it and see a piece of junk, but we see treasure. ;)
    Sorry to hear about your tree exploits, I'm sure it was scary when it happened and a ton of work to get it all cleaned up and fixed.

    My blade is almost camouflaged from the patina.

    There should be a lot of knife handles in that!
    Pain in the butt, though; glad it wasn't more serious.

    Oops, lambsfoot-

    Good Morning Guardians
    First test of the year for my Algebra classes.
    Fingers crossed that I prepared my students well enough.

    Wow, GT. I hope all the tree troubles are behind you soon.

    I hope you’re enjoying being able to teach without having to deal with all of the non-teaching stuff that was part of being a full-time professor.

    I wish my algebra tests came with a lambsfoot!

    In honor of back to school time for both of our resident math teachers, here’s a bonus question inspired by John’s photo:

    [​IMG]

    The shape of a lambsfoot blade can be described by two lines: the nose line and the spine line. Using the graph, determine the line equations y = ax + b for each of the three lines depicted above:

    - nose (shared by both)
    - spineW - spine of a Waynorth Cutlery Lambsfoot (blue)
    - spineA - spine of an A. Wright Lambsfoot (red)

    I like questions like: "You have three apples. How many apples do you have?"
