I like it but afraid there would maybe trademark infringement concerns..It would be neat if there was something stamped on the bolster. Maybe an anchor?
Standby ...the longboat aint even in the water yet.This’ll be a good one. I’m definitely in for at least one.
Have the next steps and order list been hashed out yet?
Well said Sir..we dont discriminate on this Ship....except for Flippers...we hate Them to a man.No feathers ruffled I just see a lot of comments (and now threads apparently) targeting genuinely good groups like mine that are outside of BF. I understand some of the concern from others, but it is mostly unwarranted.
I am looking forward to the forum knife this year and very excited it is happening at all - peace
I’m a little in this comment. Lurked without joining for a while, joined but mostly like to read and learn based on the discussions happening. I don’t chime in a lot, but certainly don’t want to be seen as a FB flipper. I can’t really stand Facebook and I don’t think I’ve ever sold a knife that I bought!
Have you thought about giving any away? or perhaps a storage facility?My kind of collector!!
Actually I've sold a few, only for fear of being buried!!
Mmmmmm sounds simple in theory...but who would have the time to collate and organise it?I think the reason behind having a significant post count has to do with being a member that contributes to conversations or at least shares their admiration for knives as well as their opinion. So if only lurking, thats not being involved at all. I think im on the low end of involvement myself. Im not sure how fair it would be to limit sales to paying members since we contribute monetarily to the forum, but it is a thought. Maybe, the higher the membership level, more they can purchase. Another idea is, a member can buy 2 if over 1,000 posts, 3 if over 2,000 posts, and so on. I would only get one, but the more dedicated members would have more available to them.
A Narwhale with some flippers impaled on its nose.Perhaps a narwhale?
Very true...flippers or "bilge vermin" as I prefer to know them will always be with us. Never let them detract from our voyage.GEC may put a limit on the production number for these if it interferes too much with how Bill wants to make his other knives. If he allows us 500 we may only get to do one apiece. If there is no limit I don’t see why folks shouldn’t get as many as they want. We’ve spent WAY more time talking about flippers turning a profit on forum knives than the few flippers have in turning their few $100s of profit. I say we try to enjoy the process and not get overly worried about who is genuine or not. The mods can use the list they already have and add to it if this year presents its average (small) number of flippers. Don’t let the few flies distract from the lovely meal we’re being offered.
What a relief! Looks like I'm off the hook for scrimming 500 canoes.
Can I get a bunny rabbit on mine? Narwal on the pile side, I think...
One of my favorite things about Barlows is the bolster stamp, but the rat-tail/lined bolster on the mock-up looks great and might make up for it being plain.
I really do not care what the covers are as long as they are a Very Good Red Sawcut Bone like the early 2015 77 Northfield Barlows .Wow if these happen they'll be absolutely stunning! What a great looking Barlow! I also vote to let Charlie & Bill choose covers! Or maybe two different scales on each side lol.
