    It's good for the fabric.

    I saw Mallory's knife at the Royal Geographical Society along with other artefacts retrieved when his body was found.

    Very nice. I wonder if there are any knives made in Wales?

    Thanks, Jack! I've really enjoyed toting the AC (although it hasn't been many days in a row yet). It is such a good size.

    Nice composition Jer :thumbsup:

    I'm not worried about the fabric, I'm worried about looking incontinent! :eek: o_O :thumbsup:

    Surviving thanks Ron ;) :thumbsup:

    That must have been fantastic :) I'm a former climber myself, and have a stack of books on Mallory. I was a fan of the Lambsfoot pattern long before his body was found, and so the discovery was important to me in several ways. I'd love to try and recreate it, but working with the Sheffield cutlers isn't straightforward unfortunately.

    So far as I know, Wales has no history of cutlery manufacture. Once Sheffield became established as a cutlery capital, even cutlery production in other established centres, such as London and Shrewsbury went into decline, since it was difficult for them to compete. There may be custom knife makers in Wales though :thumbsup:

    Glad you're enjoying carrying it Joshua :) While the blade is only fractionally smaller than on its bigger brothers, the smaller frame makes for a very different carry doesn't it? I was pretty lukewarm about the small size Lambsfoot prior to the ACs, but I really warmed to it :) :thumbsup:

    Ezra asked for some Mahi Mahi too, and it was in the budget so now Cod, Salmon, and Mahi Mahi

    Looks like your AC has had a busy day Joshua :) Hope Ezra is having a great birthday :) I can remember my 3rd birthday, and my 5th, but my 7th kind of just fades in with all the rest :rolleyes: ;) :thumbsup:

    Very interesting mate, as you well know cutlery is so hard to purchase down here in the Antipodes, so just by pure coincidence i was only informed by email this morning that i will have a 3-4 week wait while a cutting implement is made for me. Be interesting to see how it turns out.

    How are you getting on with it Dave? :thumbsup:

    Hope you get a good one Leon :) Nice to see your Snakewood Candle-end :thumbsup:

    Good morning Guardians, hope everyone is having a good Halloween weekend :) Not sure we'll get any Trick Or Treaters this year, but I might watch a couple of Hammer Horror films later ;) Carrying my Hartshead Barlow for now, but maybe I'll switch to something darker this evening :D Have a great day Guardians :) :thumbsup:

    Good morning Guardians! I hope y’all have a safe Halloween and don’t eat too much candy! ;) I’m carrying a wee Sambar this morning. Hopefully I won’t need anything larger later on! :eek:

    I never did get around to carving that pumpkin. Maybe I'll freeze it before I throw it out.

    Going camping today with my three older boys and some men and sons from the school. Should be fun!
