Welcome Home

I've been collecting Barry Wood folders ever since I got my first one in 1980. Curently have over 120 of them. The one that always eluded me was one made by Barry in collaboration with Bob Loveless. In 1973 the two made 36 folders before their collaboration dissolved. The blades were ground by Steve Johnson (he worked for Loveless) and scales/frame and build was done by Barry.
I've only handled one, a few years ago at a knife show and I've only seen two others for sale online in all this time. Needless to say, it has been my "Holy Grail" of knives for a long, long time.
At the Blade Show last June, a dealer I know told me of someone that owns one but wanted to sell. I made an offer and the other day the dealer emailed me and said the seller accepted my offer.
It arrived last week. My quest is complete... 

And here's a GREAT pic by a real photographer...

you're very lucky : an original system (i'm not sure wood is the first but it's not important) and a blade made by loveless

i like it

This is amazing. I didn't know they partnered up. I sold a DP blade last year (not a Loveless) and a clip point many years ago. . Still have a regrind PCC copy.
