    Indeed it is new to me. Took a long time to locate. I’m actually not a huge fan of the sheepsfoot. But there is something about those covers and that blade combination that sets it apart. I have a very well used one as well which I’ll post pictures of when I get the chance. MJ.

    Charlie, I like the blade combo on the top one. I could see that being extremely useful.

    A few weeks ago I seen some barlows on a table at a flea market. Well naturally I went over to check them out, oh boy did I get to see what makes a bad barlow. Wish I would have taken a pic, Pakistani stuff. The bad Pakistani stuff,and that's say'n something. About 30 degrees of side to side play, and somehow still hard to open and wouldn't snap shut. The edge bevels were a riot, best part $15.00 apiece. Well as the man said "Thems real barlows,cant find those no more "o_O I wish I had one of my barlows on me,I sure would have been tempted to show the guy a "real" barlow lol. I'll keep eye out if I see them again I'll grab a pic. [​IMG]
    You know,cause'n ya cant find them barlows no more;)

    The bleached out handles looks like it belongs on a desert island, hanging out on the beach catching fish and sipping a nice cold anything....
