    What Makes a Good, Traditional Barlow?

    Great looking barlows, I have a Parker just like that one. I also have an I*XL made in England. This subject came up once before that I can remember but I can't remember which thread. While looking at pics of the Parker/Japanese I*XL barlows compared to my English made one and pics of others I...

    Mine also shows the most change on the mark side,and shows the most in bright light. Although I'm certain my working conditions accelerated the process 😉

    Thanks, It is very scary to watch much less to go through. Very glad you made a recovery! She still had movement in her legs and arms but couldn't support her own weight. Every day I see improvement in her mobility and coordination, she starts physical therapy this week, perhaps early as...

    Oh and to be clear she had a gastric bug and a UTI leading up to the GBS, her docs seem to think it was most likely the gastric bug. I was just going on what they had said that a vaccine could cause it. However I feel that if covid infection can trigger it, letting people know of the symptoms...

    Thank you, I hadn't intended to spread misinformation, just something a nurse had said about a spike in cases. Thanks for the clarification. According to the doctors here she can't have ANY vaccines in the future due to the risk of causing a flare up of the GBS.

    That knife others seem to find ugly, unworthy, or ridiculous, but that you are personally drawn to...

    The 35 Calfpen sure doesn't seem to get much love, especially orange delrin. I wish they'd make 10,000 of'em.

    Show me your very first traditional knife

    Oddly enough I found a picture of what mine looked like. Mine is at my Dads in a keepsake box he has. Anyways when I was about 7 I was given one of these cheap pen knives, like the red ones. I graduated to a Victorinox camper model at age 10, carried it until I lost it in my early 20s.👍

    On a lighter note,literally, here's a comparison of the mark and pile sides. I think between the stuff I carry and a pocket full of sheetrock dust, I gave the mark side about a years worth of wear in a week 😶 Good thing I like the look huh? 😁👍
