One of my favorites being I'm a lousy fisherman I can always brag on this one.

Sorry for the delay Roland. I don't know but I'll ask the next time we speak. Here's another stag beauty.

The last (at this time) are two sowbellies. An amber stag and an Nguni horn with an eagle head shield. Nguni is a type of South African cattle.

I don't know how you do it. I check Vince's site regularly and see new Lloyd's almost weekly, but i have yet to see one as 'perfect' as every one that you show. I think we must have seen them all, at least all the 'perfect' ones at least. Then again you post 2 or 3 more !
Beautiful knives you have.
By "perfect" i'm meaning the instant visual appeal. I get this for every one of the Lloyd's you have posted.

Thank you Roland but my only claim is to picking them out. Several were bought on the secondary market so it's not as if I have a monopoly. It is a pleasant surprise when one pops up for sale at a fair price as this beauty did last month. It is definitely one of my favorites and as John explained the tang stamp indicates that it is CPM154, an added bonus.

This last one looks a bit like the Remington/GEC pattern #23. Does it have a flush & square joint ?

Just received this beauty and it surpasses all my expectations. It's a 4 1/4" trapper in stacked leather, end cap and fish shield. Alone, with its leather buddies and fish shield buddies.

Another "Oh Wow !". Your collection of John Lloyd knives shows his work to be as fine as knife makers whose prices are 3-4 times as much. Your John Lloyd knives are amazing.

Yeah this one is real special Roland. I agree with your opinion. The first Lloyd I ever bought was that Richlite LC that the seller badmouthed. It's as good as any I own.
