    Great to see John's incredible photos of your beautiful knife Charles :thumbup:

    I have to go and see my dentist on Sheffield on Monday, so am hoping to visit Stan at the same time :thumbup:

    Beautiful knife Charles.

    Jack Sir- mixed world I sont envy the Dentist visit- but man I am so jealous you get to visit Stan. Please pass on my regards and let him know just how special our visit was.
    In saying that- ask Stan if he ever e-mails?
    If so it would be wonderful to show him how much he is appreciated by a few links here and there?

    Good luck for both visits my friend.

    Thanks Duncan, you are always with me in spirit when I visit Stan, and he still remembers you my friend :) I'm afraid he doesn't do the internet at all though :(

    Glad you're finding this thread of interest Randy :) Unfortunately, like a lot of older threads here, many of the images are no longer hosted, so I'm going to try and add some pics. First, some of Stan's knives from the Sheffield Museums archives :thumbup:

    Here's a great pic of Ted Osborne, Stan's mentor at Ibberson's, using a parser. To Ted's left, his young apprentice, Stan Shaw, can be clearly seen :)

    Thanks for posting this, Charles. I love the "fire" near the center of the handle. Looks strikingly like a fire opal my mom has. The craftsmanship looks exquisite!! Thanks for sharing this gem.:thumbup:

    Jack: Thanks for the treasure trove of museum knives and photos. They help me appreciate Stan and those Sheffield cutlers who came before him. What dedicated craftsmen they were! You live in a rich corner of the world. :thumbup:

    Very interesting photos, Jack. But...now I don't understand exactly how the parser works. The "drill bit" is two pronged? Maybe you can get video of it is use by Stan:D:eek:

    Jack, in the 1st black & white photo in post #168 the lobster looks very similar to the one I posted. Thanks for adding all these neat pictures of a Sheffield legend and his shop. Glad to see this thread recirculating again. Here are some more pics of my Stan Shaw lobsters including one marked SS-57 and paired with the SS-76.
