Duffer, you have 3. I don't even have 1, yet. I am jealous.
They all are very good looking knives and your review covers all 'bases' and all score 'perfect'. This is very special. Now i'm even more jealous :mrgreen:

I like the knife and I think the shield works with the knife. It is a large knife and the scale and the large shield seems to work for me. Although I do believe I would have liked it better if the shield were rotated 90 degrees to the left so the Ram is a little easier to see when the knife is horizontal (see picture below). The shield does have some nice detail work as shown in the enlargement.

The Waynorth version has upgraded componentry (steel liners, pins, bolster work, etc.). I like the lambfoot blade profile better as well. Although I have to say I like both knives, but the Waynorth version a little better. Please pardon the slightly mismatched camera angles.

Excellent comparison Jerry! I missed the lambs foot but I do have a possible trade in the works for one. Hopefully I will get it. I was very impressed with the the cocobello 93 so I'm sure I'll get used to the Ram shield. I think this 93 run was a good one for GEC. ::tu::

My Original Ram Foot came today. The Ram shield is much nicer in hand than it looks in pictures. I'm well satisfied with the two that I chose. :D

redrider, the first handgun I ever owned was that one in .32 S&W long. $37 brand new out the door with 5 bullets to put in it. Bought it a couple of days after my 21st birthday.

I just paid for two #93 Northfield real rams foot knives. I just spotted this picture on Face Book. The real #93 Lambs foot and #93 Rams foot knives are the exact same dark chestnut color with different jigging.

You guys must be super fast at responding to email alerts of knives available. I have received quite a few emails saying 'new batch of #93 available' but every time i check i see "Sold Out". Other than sitting in front of computer and refreshing email every 2 minutes for a few days, there is no other way because these sell out in minutes. There are a great many #93 on ebay right now. I do not understand how flippers can score multiples of this pattern. One seller has 15 listed.
Because i always arrive after 'Sold Out' i do not get to see the prices. Did someone recently post prices for the various #93's ? I would like to know how much extra ebay sellers are charging. I will pay more than original but i do not want to feed greed.

I am like you, always sold out, but i'm in Australia so that can't help. I think i saw them around the $90 mark on one site. Pretty sure that was the price. ::tu::

The one i saw was the cocobolo. But i think they were all roughly the same price range. Micarta may have been a bit cheaper.

Roland, 92.90 from KSF for the Autumn jigged bone, 90 even from CK, 77 dollars for the Cocobolo. I think the Micarta was around the same price as the wood handled one, not sure about that.

dog, not to hijack the thread but that is exactly what this is, .32 S&W long Model 732. Great little shooter.
