    Thank you. The African Blackwood on this one is so nice. No matter what the cover, it’s simply a great looking knife. That blade wants to work.

    Mt amber sawcut came early. A few freckles to add to the charm. Really like the 77 pattern and happy to have this one:

    Mine arrived ! Looks really nice, fit and finish is very good although there are some minor gaps between spring and liner by the bolsters. Not a big deal as all my Barlows have this to some extent. Great walk and talk with a nice pull.

    USPS says my Red was just delivered. But I won’t believe they actually did something on time till it’s in my hands.

    Hopefully it’s a good dark example but even if it’s not it’s going to be a user.

    At my age it’s the small things that give me pleasure. A kiss from my beautiful little granddaughter, cruising the back roads as the leaves change color here in CT, with Tom Petty on the radio and the feel of my first CK 77 in micarta in my right front pocket Thank you Mike, well done

    Kinda blown away with this knife! Color, color match, F&F, W&T - all tops. The pull on this one may be a tiny bit less than I feel in my 3 other GEC 77 examples...maybe a 5 or 5-1/2, but the action is so smooth, and the talk is...musical. :thumbsup::cool:

    And - (bonus!) I can pinch it open! :eek::thumbsup:

    Excellent fit, finish and function. The consistency of the 77’s is amazing. Very nice knife. DB9960AB-7E0B-4294-B960-8C729394AC2E.jpeg

    Steve, when you put it next to some vintage Barlow’s I think it makes the 77 look even better!!

    They made these different that previous versions. At least all the ones I’ve seen. The back end back spring pin is no longer exposed.
