    That F&F looks great for a Wright. You're a knife mechanic, not a magician. While I enjoy working on Sheffield knives, I do spend more time re-fitting the knives than modding them, LOL

    Sweet little gem of a knife now.:thumbsup:
    I have a Michael May lambfoot that I had the spring gaps worked on by Jeff Distin and it came out very nice but now the scales (polished rams horn) have gotten funky looking and I'm contemplating a re-cover. Your work looks exquisite.

    All finished up! A. Wright Lambsfoot recovered in snakewood and red g10 accent liner. This was one beat up knife when it came to me. Literally held together with electrical tape. Wish I would have taken a before pic. She's a classy mama now! :cool:

    The knife that Jason just finished is mine. This is what I sent Jason.

    Some of you know that I've had some really really unpleasant experiences over the last few months and I'll tell all of you that this experience with Jason and this knife is the most uplifting thing that's happened to me throughout my ordeal. What this man has done for me is beyond words. Having said that Jason, THANK YOU.

    Ed, I'm embarrassed to say that I am unaware of of what you have endured recently. Regardless it was my pleasure and privilege to fix this old girl up for you. THANK YOU for reaching out to me! And you are very welcome sir. :)

    Ed, here's to hoping those unpleasant days are all behind you. From the looks of it you now have one of the sweetest Sheffield knives ever. :thumbsup: Quite a Re-Cover-y for both you and the knife, congrats! :)
    Wonderful work Jason! :cool:
