    This one looks a little Ancient.

    I am glad you like the Case Barlow Charlie. @waynorth I thought of you every time I looked at it. Each year Case/Zippo pairs a limited edition knife and lighter for their annual swap meet. The Barlow was created in limited numbers for that purpose a few years ago. It seemed to be right up your alley, and I knew that you would appreciate the nuances more than anyone. It is a beautiful knife, and now it is right where it belongs, with you up north!

    The state of my Yankee Barlow collection. (I would trade the autumn gold for a mint sawcut Beer Scout.)

    Anyone recognize this Barlow bolster stamp? I have this mystery knife on the way. I usually jump on unusual lots of knives with low BINs.

    looks like an ancient drawn swedge on the pile side of that blade as well

    The Rendezvous special #31 out of 30 believe it or not - pictured 3rd down - gifted to me and most precious to me, I was devastated to say the least upon finding - during a maintenance visit- that this knife obtained a rust spot - it broke my heart- but the knife will stay with me forever.......
