    Well, the only year's model I've ever used is the Buck.

    As to my favorite, it is the 2009 barlow. Not because it's better than any other year, but because I almost missed it. I was recovering from heart bypass surgery, and couldn't get out to mail my payment in. I barely got released to start driving, and got payment out in time.

    Now, if somebody could use some photo software and put the year beside those knives, that WOULD be a Completist photo! ;) I'm just saying....

    The one on the bottom left. It looks very dark with the wavy ridges.

    That’s the one Paul. What are your overall impressions of the knife?

    Unfortunately the mail system can be more unpredictable or maybe more predictable then Mike @knifeswapper :p:D since you never know what he has in store for you :D
    Here’s my newly acquired beautiful Carmel colored Blonde perfect in every way to give ya a hold you over until yours arrives which I hope is soon and also hoping yours is a wonderful example like mine :)

    17 Nov left Florida.
    20 Nov arr. N.Y.
    21 Nov left N.Y.
    28 Nov arr. Helsinki...

    Now the real wait begins :eek: Finnish Posti still not received it which means Customs are holding it, despite digi mania they still send a snail mail letter to you demanding import tax, that can take over 7 days to get here...You pay online, a rather tedious business, then Post wants the 'handling fee' more tedious online stuff. THEN it can be released to Posti and the packet can take 5 days to 3 weeks to get here...:rolleyes: Best case scenario it arrives today:D Worst case just before Christmas. But all good things etc.;)

    Being a knife enthusiast here, you need the patience of a Cat :D
