Ron WOW! Just WOW!  Thanks so much for the additional info on the MOP Barlow & particularly the Video I especially enjoyed the last segment with the footage of the craftsman assembling the knife, I picked up a few tips from it. The most amazing thing is the way he 'thumped' away with the peening hammer. If you or I tried that, the bolsters and scales would be marred beyond saving. I also spied the price in that dealer link ... I don't think I will be getting one anytime soon. But I might hunt around for a standard model from TEW  I have a new Joseph Rogers Barlow and a few vintage sheffield knives but not a TEW... Thanks again.

Ron, checked out your Flickr Photos - some real beauties! Looks like you really enjoy your photography. One pic caught my eye a Taylor's Eye Witness Clip Bladed Knife with pearl (?) scales ... What model is it ... more info please. Hard to Gauge the size but it looks very similar in design to the Tony Bose Lanny's Clip ... beaut looking piece of blade wear.

$55 every month Ron , good heavens you have been living high on the hog !

I was in Los Angeles once , I think , at the airport waiting for a transfer flight to New Zealand in 2001 so I can't say I know a lot about the place . The thought of paying money to jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane defies logic to me , I get a nose bleed any higher than six steps up a ladder .

4 new knives in the last couple of days! One was the Green Spyderco Paramilitary 2 CTS-204P that I had been trying to get for over a year and a half. I also got a Spyderco Native, an Orange Victorinox Hunter XT, and a coffin shaped, solid stainless steel Wenger Traveler.

These 2 came today...…
