Is a Ram's foot bigger than a Sheepfoot ? I have never heard of this blade until now, only sheep foot and lamb foot. Maybe GEC's own tweak ?

Looks like a Sheep Foot with slightly extended point; i.e. curve from spine to edge is not quite as steep (but very close, not much difference that i can see).

Thanks Doc.
I'm on my phone and a copy and paste of the link is quicker and easier than messin' with trying to get a pic. For me, anyway.

Yea...your post wasn't there, when I started my endeavor of looking for an image and taking the screen shot. By the time I got done...you got me! ::handshake::

I'm reading that it will be in June. I suppose the only way to know what the difference is between the 93 and 47 frames is to get a new 93 and post pics of it next to my 47 Hayn Helper. I've often thought I'd carry my Hayn Helper more if it were in upgraded handle covers, but the safety orange color delrin just doesn't go with business casual in an office setting, most days. Perhaps this will be another instance where GEC produces a new frame number that is indistinguishable (by looking at pics or drawings) from an existing frame, like the 53/54.

Perhaps the name Ram's Foot suggests that the blade stock will be a little thicker, a more stout sheepsfoot. My Colonial E-4 coping blade is similarly shaped, and I like the nearly 1/8" thick blade. Looks like I'll be going for a micarta variety 93 since it's a bare end handle and I've learned my lesson about larger knives with a bare end bone handle.

Just curious, Lee.
What lesson did you learn?

Waynorth Cutlery will be offering the Lamb's foot version. "European style" I like the GEC version better for easier opening. I have one arm and the Ram's foot blade was made for me. Anything Waynorth Cutlery is middle-man over priced to me.

Not my picture and it's not a Hay'n Helper, but here's a good comparison of the new 93 & a 47 Viper. They're much more similar than I'd have thought.

Received a micarta today, it's a really nice knife, easily pinchable but not a light pull, I would say 6 to 7, has half stop. Shown with my EDC TC, this 93 may knock the TC out of my pocket for awhile.

Quote: "Anything Waynorth Cutlery is middle-man over priced to me."
They are more expensive but i have never been disappointed with any Waynorth knife. Charlie C. has a remarkably good sense of design for knives. They are knives that just 'grab you' at first sight. The secondary market prices for Charlie C. knives (Waynorth Cutlery) are rather nuts, very high, but original price is reasonable for the knife you get.
