    My 1979 Case XX smooth Appaloosa. Love the shape and proportions of the clip point main blade. Case Barlow.JPG

    David, I've got it's cousin from 1999, a blue jigged Pocketworn Barlow. I prefer the bolster stamp on yours vs. the shield on mine for brand ID. OH

    @rockman0 Rob, that Russell is intriguing. I've never seen one with the arrow-thru-R stamped on reverse tang, nor with a full blade that is unsharpened! Makes you wonder about the story behind it. Thanks for showing!

    Nice barlow OH, really like that blue. I agree I think a bolster stamp looks better for a barlow. I'm not sure what this pattern of jigging is called, is it corn cob? Anyways, it looks great in a pocket worn finish.

    I haven't found a anyone who's seen the arrow thru R tang stamp. I would like to know more but it'll probably remain a mystery. Thanks Al.

    It may not be a Barlow that everyone wants and it might not have the carbon steel blades that are so sought after but it is my Case Barlow and it cuts. My experience is Tru Sharp, CV or 1095 all perform similarly with sharpness and edge holding. Tru Sharp is stainless and requires less care, that's all. But here's the best part, it is made in the good old USA by an outstanding company with a long standing pedigree.

    Ripcord, I think that is Case's best example of a Barlow in the modern era - nice jigging on nicely colored red bone - looks deep like the older color.
    David, Corncob is the style jigging, then it's also given the Pocketworn look. OH

    As you know, we don't always get what we want, bolster stamp vs. Shield but I sure think that is a beautiful knife. I love that blue , pocket worn corn cob. I don't need another Case barlow, though I do have a CV model ordered, but hey, I just may have to get a blue one like your just because I like that blue. I have a red pocket worn corn cob Trapper and the pocket worn is very comfortable and pleasing to hold.

    Just a couple very light passes on the Sharpmaker to do a quick touch-up of the factory edge, and this one cuts like a laser. :thumbsup:

    Thanks,
    Believe it or not 2008, I picked it up this weekend at a pawn shop thats also a small Case dealer. When I seen it in the case a thought it was from the 2019 release. But he had to sell me the display, and cut me an unbelievable deal. Apparently it was old stock.
