    I'm unobjectively certain they are all nice and I doubt you'll be disappointed. You have THE traditional knife release of the year on the way to you.

    Nice job, that's no small feat with the limitations on what you can purchase direct.

    Not much of a story, but my collection and wallet are much lighter now.

    Wow! What a collection. Where did you even get the snakewood? I didn't see any production pics of it or see it available in my preorder selection email.

    I noticed a big difference in the bone colors and saw patterns of my two reds. One from this recent run and a sheep from 2015. Not a problem, but just noticing how different they are.
    The 2016 clip with steel bolsters are still my favorite run of 77s.

    I've just been really, really enjoying mine. Can't seem to quit wanting to carry it. This picture is kinda old and it has lots more patina now.

    The saw cut on mine is irregular, has anyone sanded the saw cut smooth? I'm wondering how hard the bone is. I was thinking of using scotch bright and working down to progressively finer grit's then polish to avoid damage to pins. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    My 77 finally arrived today having traveled to Michigan, crossed the border, and then been posted to Kitchener, ON. Thank you, Mike Latham, for the 2nd chance opportunity to purchase the knife. This is my 1st GEC Barlow and my 1st GEC with Micarta covers.

    Breaking in the barlow on a short trip to CA wine country with the family. Micarta really pops in the sunlight.

    First order of business for the humble barlow is addressing snack time for three little ones...

    My Blackwood Barlow has a little side-to-side wobble in the blade.

    I have about a dozen other GEC builds and none of them are loose at all.

    Is this something that can be adjusted or repaired?

    Or should I just live with it?
