    Thanks, guys. Here's a sneaky one that I found at the bar, shirking his family portrait duties.

    That one is absolutely fabulous, David!! As you said, excellent condition and deep color. Makes mine look like the proverbial red-bone stepchild. I'm so glad that you saved that one from an uncertain future AND that you shared it. Kudos, pal.

    The beauty of the Barlow, as mentioned at the beginning of this thread, is that even the homeliest Barlow looks handsome as a working knife.

    Those Barlows were made in the Glory Days of Queen!!!
    Hidden "sunk" tangs and wonderful coloring of the bone are just some of the great features of those knives!!

    Thanks, Charlie.They do have those favorable feature, yet are still humble and honest knives. Form and function, together at the simplest level. (Though you have concocted some that elevate the genus greatly.)

    @Duckdog - Thank you kindly, Stuart. You have a stunning collection of Barlows. Of all the Traditional patterns, it is the Barlow, my first love.
