    Thanks for showing the Blades, Barrett! I am always proud to see that knife's pattern!! Bill liked it enough to do the Farm Boy in the same pair of blades!

    Very nice Barlows! What are your thoughts on the Primble? I’ve been thinking about picking one up.

    Thanks, I bought the Primble of the Bay for $30 shipping included. They are offered for $45 or best offer. The fit and finish is good, the blades are centered and snappy with no wobble. I was pleasantly surprised by this knife.

    Thanks! They are attractive, may have to pull the trigger next time I see one pop up. Hope we don’t bid against each other!;)
