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.

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...

And here are all 4 together...…


You can tell it's gonna be a good day...
