The stag is truly beautiful but I love that mammoth.. the little craters and character marks.. that is a special knife =)
I agree with you on the stag Drew. It's as nice as any I own. The mammoth is immaculately done. Flush in all three positions, pull is about 7.5 and pinchable, perfectly centered, transitions are as smooth as glass, and sharp. Did I miss anything? I guess that's good!

I felt a great need for a knife with Missouri on the tang.

I also felt a need to not go outside for a photo. It is sweltering.
I was wondering who got that. Nice pickup of an outstanding knife.

This one is just weird enough to be cool - might need to grow on you before you take it out in public :D

Just goes to show you that John Lloyd Knives are beautiful, uncommon, and unpredictable too.

Still need to get myself one :( :thumbsup:

I love the blade shape of the Odd Job.

I'd like to try one.

Not to be disparaging - rather sharing my visual impression - the open shape kind of reminds me of this -

A design that has proven to be very useful in nature.

Am I the only one who see this relation?

Ray I told John it looked like an Orca. So yes,I see what you're seeing & saying . We tossed around a few names. In the end,the " Odd Job " was voted in. Very unique utilitarian blade shape. The frame feels great in your hand
