The other is the Waynorth lambs foot. Got this one from 3 finger Mac. Was glad he had a few to sell.
Mark,

Every time you post a pic of a knife there with the water in the background, it's just Zen. I love those pics. So relaxing, with a nice knife in the foreground. Keep 'em coming! And the dark bone on the Lambsfoot is so perfect, makes me wish we could get jigging like that on NF branded knives. Well done, Sir!

Thank you Lee, I try to change the background periodically, it helps me find the knives later. When you scroll through so many on your iPhone or iPad it helps to pinpoint a time period. I can remember approximately when I bought a knife, so looking for the background I was using then helps to locate it. Plus I like to change it seasonally if there is something from an old calendar that catches my eye to put in the background. Plus it just looks fresh to change it. Glad you like this one, it’s from a Christian calendar with a Psalm on the bottom of it, the 23rd, He leads me beside still waters.

I did well recently. I bought a #93 natural canvas micarta , #93 Cocobolo wood , and an #06 Pemberton white bone single blade Wharncliffe. These NOS knives were left over from Rendezvous 2019. I always keep checking the small GEC dealers 24/7. Surprise NOS knives pop up all the time. These GEC dealers find NOS missed placed knives , sometimes. I picked up two single blade #48 Weasels this year at the original release price. Those two knives had wavy peach-seed jigging.

I am a bit late to this party but everyone seems pleased with their #93's and the Oily Creek Bone handles get positive comments. I just won this Tidioute 93 on ebay for $89 which includes shipping. I don't recall the dealer price but i think it was close to the same. Is there a Northfield version with this same bone handle ?
And the cap has a big "3" on it. Do you know what this might be for ?

Good looking knife, Roland!

The number ”3” on the cap label was most likely used by the original GEC dealer to designate photos of a specific knife on their website. By photographing each individual knife in a handle run and numbering said photos and their corresponding knives, the dealer allows the customer to choose the exact knife that they will receive.

No Northfield versions of the #93 were offered in Oily Creek Bone.

I just noticed I neglected posting this one in this thread. This is the 93 Ram Foot that Doug sent to me shortly before his death, to replace the one that was stolen off my front porch. As you may guess it holds a special place in my heart and my small pile of GEC's.
