    Again, thank you, Mike!

    I really don't want a Barlow, but will eagerly buy at least one of whatever is chosen.

    Italians seem to have a thing about horn, I think that would make a fitting cover should this come to pass.

    I will be very happy no matter what pattern is ultimately chosen. Lionsteel rams horn is always very attractive so that would be my choice if possible. Again, thank you Mike for all of the legwork in taking on what seems to me to be a huge task!

    Thank you Mike for donating your time for this project. I echo all the sentiments of appreciation above. I voted barlow or swayback but I am hoping swayback. Thanks again Mike for everything you do in the blade community

    Prefer swayback but single blade is a must. Done with Barlow's.

    Voted barlow, mainly because it's not been well represented in past forum knives.

    Although, that swayback!!!

    Thanks for your efforts!

    Thanks, Mike. Any of the choices will be a solid knife.

    On the sowbelly, is it possible to get them without the bottom bolster (endcap)? I think they'd look even better without it, personally.

    It’s really nice seeing this unfold in a positive direction.

    Our shared hobby is a nice refuge away from a lot of the craziness of life.

    If this is something that can be pulled off despite all the challenges going on it really does showcase the resilience of our community.

    Bravo Gals and Gents!

    Swayback or Sowbelly for me. Swayback is my first choice. Those look sweet. I might have to buy one when the Barlow is chosen because it's everyone's second choice. ;)

    (I’m in no matter what the porch chooses). My vote is Bolus with a clip.

    I own a couple of the Lionsteel knives. The drop point knife has the nail nick placed too far back on the blade which makes it (very) difficult to open. This is because the thumb nail’s access is blocked by the covers and the pull strength is increased by the placement.

    The other blade is both pinchable and far more accessible. A pleasure to deploy.

    Whichever blade gets chosen, it would be best to pick one to avoid this issue so as to avoid disappointment on the porch.
