    I'm elated to finally get my hands on a traditional Barlow, and Case didnt disappoint.

    That may be true but still no TC...not trying to suck up here but so many of the newer Barlows including those from across the pond don't have the long narrow tapering bolster as exhibited on a TC...to me they look like a tongue depressor.

    Thanks, Augie, I agree on the packaging. It adds a little bit more of history.

    My smallest Barlow yet, a Robeson shown with a Case Tested for comparison.

    If y'all don't mind, I'm going to quote myself from the Case Barlow thread:
    Since this is the thread that asks, "What makes a traditional Barlow?" does anyone have any insight into what makes traditional saw-cut Barlow covers? Am I right in assuming that the marks were actually left from cutting with a saw? Are they still done that way, or is it a kind of jigging applied later in the process?
