I'm retired!!!! No more of that 0400 or 0500 wake up call unless we're headed out of town.
I'm just jealous.
What the heck. Another picture just because it's Sunday. Buffalo Horn covered "Big-un".
While I don't post here nearly enough, I sure enjoy seeing so many wonderful pictures from everyone!!!
Here are my two favorite contemporary Lambsfoot models, I might not be alone with this selection...
And along with most of my fellow Guardians, I also enjoy a good adult beverage now and then.
I’m showing the same photo and totin the same Lambsfoot two days in a row! I’ve got more apples to slice today and this Bigun handles that task very well! Y’all have a great day!
@Half/Stop - Did you grind/sand down the stag on that knife? If so, could you post a link about doing it? Doesn't matter one way or the other. It's a looker any way you look at it..
Prepping to run some errands with my brilliant, beautiful wife, I was selecting the knife to accompany my ever-present SAK when this beauty called to me.
Thanks Jack, and very cool frame! I have a couple from them as well.
But today, felt like going with one I made a little while ago.
Also enjoying getting to know this 2 blader. Pretty heavy/chunky, but rides well in the pocket and is very sturdy. Came as the dirtiest Lambsfoot I've received, but once cleaned up I have to say it's the best made I've had so far. Very well put together!
They are very solid and well put together. I've got two of them and as you said; they do carry well.
Beautiful lambfoot and slingshot collection. I want to try a two bladed lambfoot, I’ll add it to my to buy list. Most of my traditional knife collection are multi blade. Nice work on the sling shot, you did a great job on it. I honestly didn’t realize there were so many Guardians interested in sling shots. It seems a lot of “knife” people are outdoorsman/ natural lovers as well.
Thanks for the compliment Ed. It’s exactly the way it came from Wright’s, except for some some darkening due to normal use. I got it from our friend @Jack Black. It’s a second because of a crack that has been factory repaired on the mark side butt end. Being Pere David Stag they’re mostly smooth antlers from my limited experience. It’s a fine knife and certainly one of my favorites!
I would like to give my heartfelt thank you to a fellow Guardian who pm me with a wonderful introduction, tips, information and resources into the world of slingshot as well as a generous offer to send starter package.
WOW TY Mike !!! @Crazy Canuck !
Here is my slingshot from my childhood, it's about 36 years old I think
My cousin and I made two, painted his orange and mine blue. The leather for the pouch was from an old shoe we found in a pile of garbage in and empty lot
Dan and Jack, I'm totally flabbergasted that our little feathered friends are drawn to human hands holding lambsfoot knives!
Thanks for your encouragement, Jack.
I was temporarily puzzled about what sort of sorcery you were doing, Greg!
With regard to the shield question, I'm sure I'd find a tasteful cloven hoof shield to be quite compelling! But my sense of aesthetics doesn't always match that of others.
Great photo of your AC, Harvey!
Thanks, and Cheers, Jack!
That pair of lambsfoots should help ease any inconveniences as you're temporarily uprooted, John! I hope the remodeling is masterful and sticks to schedule (and budget)!
Fascinating tidbits of information, Greg!
(I had a question or two that I thought you might be willing to investigate, but now they've dropped totally from my memory! )
Sounds impressive (and exhausting ), Dan!
Congrats on a big job, well done!
Yeah, I think the midnight flight out of Bengal is called Red Eye of the Tiger.
Your stag HHB is a handsome devil, Dennis! )I hear knives take on characteristics of their owners.)
Great pic of your lambsfoot pair!!
You're VERY nice to your grandkids, AL! When I go into my local bakery and ask for chocolate chip muffins, they usually tell me something like, "We got cranberry walnut today; take it or leave it!" My wish is certainly not their command!
THIS photo is definitely NOT out of focus; what a great shot! I'm glad you enjoyed your outing.
That horn lambsfoot is quite irresistible, FBC!
Mike and @JaxBaron, you've got some appealing "wrist rockets"! I think if I were to take up slinging shot, my catch box would have to be a "double wide"!
Couple of lookers, Barry!!
Your stag is stellar, Rachel!
ED and Neal, I think those jigged bone WCLF knives, when open, are probably the best looking knives on The Porch!! (I always use one of those double-ended bottle-openers with the triangular can-punch to open my beer at home. Haven't found anything else as efficient. )
Last day for Lam Jack before the weekly knife rotation:
Fantastic patina, and a great skill being able to take a photo showing the rainbow effect, that is a skill in itself. Well done. Lovely scales.
I have found that people interested in knives, are generally outdoor people. Interested in all things outdoors.
I wish I had found that book when I was a kid. My fort building skills would have been greatly improved.
The gear weights are enough to make the "Ultra Light" folk faint.
Thanks, GT, she has a little wicked streak too.
This little Lamb' bit me yesterday. It was just a nick, a gentile reminder that the tip is sharp.
I know this is not knife related, but after watching our morning news on TV, just want to send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the devastating floods in Texas.
What gets me it’s that I always need seeds in my hand, I have to bribe them .... but Jack can do it without them seeds !!!
Thank you very much!
