    On this particular "run" from the border, our good Friend Charlie not only preformed a service to the good people of Canada, but he also posted a package to one of your American cousins..... me!! :)
    Charlie had agreed to part with 2 of his most important SFO's. :eek:
    I'm sure this was not an easy decision for My Friend because both these TC's hold high sentimental value from his Good Friend Bill Howard.
    Charlie knew that these 2 TC's completed my collection. So once he decided to part with them he offered them to me. I can not tell you how much Charlie has influenced my life both in the Traditional pocketknives world and outside it.
    I consider myself Very Lucky to call the Generous Man My Friend! :D
    So here are the last 2 TC Barlows that make my quest complete..... Thank You My Friend!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    The Interior Elephant Ivory, 1 of 1, that Bill Made for Charlie for his success with the TC Barlows in 2013

    The Palo Santo wood TC that Bill made to show Charlie, 1of 2, made in 2013, Bill kept the mate to this one.

    These will also be posted in the "Barlow" thread. ;)

    Mine showed up today, beautiful blonde.

    I have to say the fit and finish on these knives is amazing. No gaps, smooth lines and the handle has a great grip to it.

    I would post a picture but can't remember how lol...perhaps it's because my gold membership expired.

    Thanks again for doing this Charlie, soon happy I got one

    Even though I live only a few hours from Charlie, Canada Post decided to let mine do a free tour of Canada and she is very well traveled now. I imagine with all the extra places visited she is likely much more valuable now. ;)
    I huge thanks to Charlie for helping these arrive safely. Mine now gets to reside with some other wonderful siblings from the Italian countryside. I do very much enjoy the texture and variety of rams horn.
