I note with interest that the Lonewolf knife has now disappeared from Mr Noble's blog, along with the assertion that it was made by an apprentice of his.
Google has cached it though, for anyone with an interest.
From this thread over on t'other sideTimbo1 on BCL said:My website was thrown together for a budget of £1,000 by designers who got images from where they could to try to present a professional front.
I've asked my designers to amend my website [...] this afternoon
Does feel like there's a bit of a difference between using stock images of generic knifemaking for a website (which loads of people do), and saying:
That seems like a fairly unambiguous statement? Is Mr Lonewolf an apprentice of Big Mark's? That seems fairly straightfoward to confirm!Here's a total one off knife made by one of my apprentices as a show piece to help him pass his exams...what a stunning knife. There is no other knife in the world like this...
The handle is made from Sambar Stag antler and has been hand engraved with the face of a wolf (it's called Scrimshaw). The knife is just under 12 inches long...better made a sheath for it soon...
