    Nice little knife, but poor edge grind . . .

    Posted by JimC on 10th Mar 2021

    Description says blade is 'carbon', Specification says it's 'stainless' (stainless also stamped on blade). If you want a very light, thin, small knife which will be kept sharp and used for nothing heavier than sharpening a pencil / cutting string / finely slicing a tomato - this will be ideal. If you plan to strip heavy armoured cable / sharpen or feather 1" sticks / carve and strip bark off hiking poles etc. - forget it. Handle is 4.5mm thick (not much thicker than most blades) so way too thin to be "clamped in your fist", but perfect for holding in your finger tips when doing very precise, gentle work. You do need a rather strong thumbnail to get the knife open, but after oiling and opening / closing about 30 times it is starting to improve - 'nail nick' being deeper would help of course. The only reason I went with 4* is that the edge was poorly ground - one side of the blade was fine, the other was atrocious. After an hour or so with my lansky kit,I got the edge 'almost right' but not perfect, due to the depth of around a third of the initial 'bad grind'. . . . .

    Joseph Rodgers Lambsfoot Stainless

    Posted by John Burgess on 17th Nov 2020

    It must be over 20 years since I purchased my Lambsfoot from Jo[[y's of Tiverton to replace a lost silver fruit knife. It is unobtrusive but always gets compliments if noticed. The blade is not marked as stainless tho' obviously is . I bought a couple from you last year and found them very hard to open - the thumb-nail slot is smaller which did not help. I am pleased to find that the new purchases open firmly but will not need 'breaking in' using mini-vices etc for 100's of cycles before becoming workable.

    A Classic Piece of British History

    Posted by thedavemyster on 22nd Oct 2019

    I purchased this knife several years ago from Heinnie Haynes. Though the description says the scales are stainless but the blade is C70 carbon steel, my blade is marked "RODGERS STAINLESS SHEFFIELD ENGLAND." First off, I love this knife! I bought this one because it is thin and fits in the 5th pocket of a pair of jeans. When I first got it, yes, it was hard to open; but I would rather have a tight knife that wears in, than a loose one that wears out. It was so tight that I clipped a pair of vise grips to the blade and opened and closed it 1000 times to wear it in. The back spring is still VERY strong, and I like that as the odds of it closing by accident are nil. This knife is very elegant; if you pull it out at a party to help someone open a blister pack, no one will freak out, not even non-knife people. For those who live in the UK, this meets the requirements there for pocket carry. Over here in the USA, this thing exudes coolness. Whenever I take it out of my pocket, my knife friends are like, "Whoa, what is that, and where did you get it?" When they find out the logo on the scales is over 300 years old, they are really impressed; it is a classic piece of British history. It is also easy to sharpen and takes a good edge; it cuts well, and even though I have large hands, I can get all my fingers on the scales for a good grip. In short, if you buy one you will not be disappointed; and if the knife is a bit hard to open at first, just use my vise grip method (and make sure to put tape on the jaws of the grips so you don't scratch the blade; but even if you do, you can polish the marks off; the cool thing about stainless is that it's stainless all the way through). One of my knife friends stopped by, saw this knife, saw the box, and that the trade mark goes back to 1682, checked the action out, and then asked me to send him the link from where I got it so he could get one. That pretty much says it all. I cannot say enough good things about this knife, as well as the great customer service from Heinnie Haynes. Thank you.

    I must have been unlucky

    Posted by Daniel on 27th Feb 2018

    Very stiff near impossible opening, arrived sticky, fowl smelling and covered in scratches, it would be a good product based on the other reviews however mine is unusable without a vice to assist. I'd return it but i may canabalise the blade for another handle

    Other people have mentioned an overly-stiff spring, so I was reluctant to order but decided to chance it. I'm glad I did. The action on mine is firm and positive and by no means unpleasant, and the blade is very sharp. This is a replacement for my lost Spyderco Grasshopper. It has a friendlier appearance and it's nice to support our own craftsmen and a manufacturer which in this case - as the leaflet says - has been making "Star and Cross" trademarked knives for three centuries. Heinnie changed my order by phone as I had ordered another knife but changed my mind. Excellent service as usual, and the legendary quick dispatch - spoke to them yesterday and got it today.

    good english made edc

    Posted by ditch on 14th Jan 2016

    When I first got it I thought the open and close was gritty and didn't really like the look but it ended up in my pocket, purely because of its size and weight (i don't even notice this is in my watch pocket) the more I use it the more I love this knife. I've got the blade razor sharp with my lansky turn box and the open and close had freed up a little after a few days carrying it. Now I look at it and wonder why I ever didnt like it to start. The stainless construction is sleek and gentleman like yet comfortable in the hand, the blade gets sharp and stays sharp with relative use and it's made in england which is a rarity in itself nower days. I own quite a few knives but at the minute this is my favorite.

    Nice product

    Posted by Paul on 18th Oct 2014

    This is a very handy little knife. Remarkably slim, it fits in my wallet and sits there for the odd time I might need it. It is an attractive shape and style. Not very sharp out of the box. I notice that owners are advised to sharpen it to a 20 degree angle and not to go for a razor edge, as that may not be suitable for many pocket knife tasks. Hmm, what tasks might those be? Well, I use a Spyderco Sharpmaker, so sharpened it to 30 degrees and a moderate edge. The action is stiff, which is just as well as there are no safety features on it like split joints or choils. A bit of WD-40 and a few hundred opens and closes and the action has loosened a bit to where it's now comfortable to open. Nice knife overall, value for money.
