"William, would you mind giving a couple of measurements on these knives. The usual, closed length and blade length?"

"Thanks for the additional info, William! Great knives you have there. Do you mind if I ask how they found their way into your collection? You appear to have one brass and one titanium? Is that correct? Amazing pieces!"

Hi William.

I would be willing to sell the Wood prototype, but I'm having a hard time putting a price on it. I sent the knife to Mike Irie, who wrote me that the knife was made by Steve Gilbody (Barry's lead man in the early 70's) and that this knife was the prototype for the Mark 6 Caper. He goes on to write that "this knife would be highly collectable to those who follow Barry's work". I'm now in the process of trying to better understand exactly what that means. Any ideas welcome.

Regards,

Bill Burns
