    Gunstock might be very interesting. Different. Any photos?

    “In” for 2 regardless of the model, but like the Swayback Wharncliffe option
    Only 298 more commitments needed :thumbsup:

    2009 and 2017 were both Barlows.

    The Lionsteels are rather modern looking to my eye, but a wildly varying, natural material like ram's horn might balance that out. :cool::thumbsup:

    The swing guard got my attention, lock back preferred (assuming there is a choice about that).

    Thanks Mike.

    mikeMike, you are the best! I appreciate all you do to make this happen, especially in a year like we have had this year. Barlow with a clip is my pick but I'm in no matter what the offering. Thanks again!

    Big thanks for even considering this, Mike.

    I've got my fingers crossed for a swayback forum knife.

    Many many thanks you bold man of action!!

    Barlows, pfeh they are everywhere, a swinguard would be fresh new lively, effervescent!

    Since that won't happen my second choice is a bolus.

    One more onto the pile here: thank you Mike for opening this thread and offering your time and effort.

    I have never thought much of the modern traditionals but I certainly appreciate good craftsmanship in any form. After a little more research I have warmed to the idea and put my vote in for a sowbelly, which I think would look lovely with horn covers. Regardless, I will likely buy at least one of whichever model is selected.

    I look forward to the long discussion thread(s) on this topic to come!

    The Swayback Wharncliffe would make for a very memorable knife.
