    A little off topic, but on thread - what's the deal with all the deleted, moved pics? I'm a newly registered user and can't post pics so don't have a clue what this is all about.

    I suspect some have cleaned out or ended their Photobucket or other web foto hosting accounts, many to make room for additional fotos. If you have a free Photobucket, there is a limit as to how many fotos one can store.

    Let's bring back this amazing thread! I spent a lot of time on these pages drooling over the amazing knives. Enough of the photos are intact to make going back through worth it.

    I still have the 55 but have added, lost and added more over the years. Here is my current collection of wharncliffe's

    Ettrick right by Wright

    Really liked this one when I got it, different, rare pattern seemed good finish. However, this Christmas I gave it some work splitting/scoring Chestnuts for making stuffing. Wharncliffes can be known for fragile tips but this on got a BENT tip curling over from the job:eek: I don't know what type of carbon steel Wright's use but it must be some soft:poop::D Looks OK though. It can manage these shelled Pecans though;)

    Here's an old Utica salesman's sample:

    A Tony Bose knife with old stag from a carving set:

    A "slim" swayback with W2 steel from Don Hanson. I've carried this one a lot since this photo. I think Tony said he has only made two in this pattern.

    Good call reviving this thread @rockgolfer, just look at all the wonderous Wharncliffes posted in the last couple days. :)

    Here's my first Wharncliffe...
    GEC 55's my most recent, but not likely my last, I like a good Wharncliffe. :)
    Case Mini-Trapper, on the edge of an actual porch ;)

    Wharncliffe blades were my favorite for long time, over the time my taste changed till I got this LB whittler couple of months ago, and then it came back to me why I like it so much.
