    Let's talk Northwoods

    I've been carrying small fixed blades in a pocket sheath for EDC for a long time and they are very cool. I find they really excel at anything you use a small folder for and are really nice for cutting apples and the like because there is no pivot to get gunk in. I picked up a few this run. Felt...

    Blade Forums Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife 2021)

    It's simply the fact that many of us don't know these small little differences. I've been collecting for years but learned a ton from his post as many people collecting a lot longer than I have did. Now I didn't think anything was "wrong" but it should not baffle you that some people didn't know.

    Blade Forums Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife 2021)

    I think the key is to try and keep the discussion of the forum knife here on the Porch. The more it's discussed outside of here, the more you will get people who don't qualify chasing it. There was another forum that had GEC make an 86 and it was a well kept secret until they dropped.

    What Makes a Good, Traditional Barlow?

    Got mine out to admire this evening. Each one brings something different and it's hard to pick a favorite.

    That last pic makes it look like the tip is fairly deep. How much did you take off?

    Blade Forums Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife 2021)

    So most of what can be said about this knife already has been said. Just thankful it arrived with no real issues, has great color, snap and size. It will be a permanent member of my collection and has probably pushed my natural bone 86 out as a result. Mine is a little darker than others but I...

    Tarnish from slip

    I have noticed the same on some knives that I carry in leather. I agree with @johnnywizzo 's comments.

    Blade Forums Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife 2021)

    I had a cracked bone TC and they sat on it for 6 months only to tell me they were out of material and ended up just stabilizing. Edit: looks like GEC was able to help him after all. Fingers crossed mine is ok when I get it!

    Thanks. Informed delivery is how I know my label was printed on the 27th but I got the notification from Barry several days later so just trying to sort out if it should be on its way as it doesn't appear that it is.

    Just out of curiosity if you got a shipping notification and tracking number does it mean it should have shipped? I know many are shipping next week but my label was printed on the 27th but not tracking.

    Attention Q and A re: the BF Spring Street Barlow!! Read carefully!

    Every year there is conversation that this year might be our last. I think the risk is still real, but we just need to see how it goes. Once knives are in hand the salty feelings start to dissipate.

    GEC #86 2021: Angus Jack, 2AB, Spring Street Barlow (BF Knife)

    Thank you. I'm very happy with it but I do like a rough micarta so I'm really looking forward to seeing how the canvas ones come out and how they compare.
