    Without looking too hard, these two would be in the running for my favorite.

    I bet y'all will think this is a before and after photo! ;) Actually it is not! I'm fortunate enough to have two of these Ebony TC Spears. One is in the safe and one is probably my most carried TC. :)

    Not so very long ago, the Barlow seemed to be the fashionable choice on this Forum ;) I think it's been de-throned...but it's still ranks high amongst knives carried. I have no evidence but I've always thought that the Spear is the original Barlow blade. It goes well with Clip & Sheepfoot but for me, it's made in Spearland:D

    Here's a good example in carbon/sawn bone

    I love spear blades, I think nothing looks classier than a spear main with a long pull, all dressed in black.

    Hence why the aged beauty below caught my eye rather quickly yesterday.

    @Pàdruig A very attractive Shap that one:thumbsup: Admiring the tip rear bolster, an unusual effect and that Propeller shield, just made for Ebony plus it has rare covetable patina;)

    I took that pic of the Case canoe about the time there was a thread discussing how some people were bothered by pics in which knives were shown with an open blade but the shield upside down.

    I rotated my photo 180 degrees in an effort to offend as few folks as possible. ;)

    I like both the Winchester coffin jack and the S&M heritage series jack but I never carry and use them.

    The balloon (?) or swell centre frame jack at the top is an ICEL from Portugal, plastic scales, thin bolsters, steel liners, quite robust and great high carbon blade steel. Cheap, only fair fit and finish but great walk and talk. I wish I could still buy them, or wish I hadn't given away other ICELs that I thought I could replace easily.
    I carried that one for about ten years straight, and used the hell out of it.

    And a S&M grand daddy Barlow in ATS 34 :thumbsup:

    Good thread idea Will! Great knives and pictures :) guys!

    P.S. Pictured is about half my knife collection. I am quite impressed with the number and variety of beautiful knives some of you have.
