    I’d be in for one at least from either, but would think Bark River would be fairly expensive, and not everyone is crazy about the convex edges they put on their blades.

    The stacked leather handles Hess makes are beautiful.

    Since we are effectively dreaming at this point anyway :), I’ll add L.T. Wright to the discussion.

    I dont think the fact that some forum members cant carry a particular knife style in public should eliminate it from consideration.

    Everyone needs a Z-Wear Mora Garberg with brown flap leather sheath and brown handle by the fireplace for batoning kindling.

    What about a nice penknife? Cigar pattern or sleeveboard.

    I think it's a shame that in all the years of BF knives, there is no Case representation. Is it a verified fact that Case is not interested in making a club/forum knife as an SFO? They were the biggest contributor from 1980-2010 for making club knives for the NKCA and others. I think a Case peanut would be a great BF knife for 2020, especially if a unique handle material were available.

    I know it’d be more expensive, but I’d like to see a Scout knife. Case made them once, would they or anyone else be willing to tool up and make one if the numbers were enough?

    I was just thinking a peanut would be great ... even better if it was made by gec.

    GEC might (educated wild guess based on nothing) do sheepfoot 14s this year.

    One of these with a punch or caplifter secondary would rock.

    As would a Pattern Premier Punchnut Peanut.

    Something different would be cool. I think a small penknife such as a Senator or Peanut could be nice and I also like the idea of a small fixed blade. As we already know Buck Knives is willing to do small runs with special steels and handles - a Buck 118 Personal in S30V with a red handle would be just dandy! OH

    Since the clip point 14s were made in 2018 and the spear points were made in 2016, I’m looking for a sheepsfoot 14 this year as well.

    But I’m almost hoping this doesn’t happen, as it could be an expensive proposition for me.

    I’d love a drop point blade with a nice long swedge like the Esky Zulu. I suppose it wouldn’t work so well with a multi blade knife though.

    At this point the only thing I DONT want it to be is a single blade slipjoint! Besides the canal street big pen like 3 of last 4 were single blades if memory serves me right.

    I too would love to see this continue and a new pattern would be terrific! The maker is not really important, but a folder would be much better for everyone IMO.

    I forgot about the elk.

    So 3 of the past 6 years?
    2014 - stag clip
    2017 - tc barlow
    2019 - rope knife

    Not as lopsided as I thought. I like single blades. I also like variety
