    Fantastic post. You are a real knife-nut, my friend :cool:
    Thanks for sharing the details.
    I'm looking for that perfect duo as well since getting my double pocket slip.
    Long may the journey continue...

    Is that from Albecete? Artesanía Herreros?

    Absolute artistry!
    You're killin' it :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Happy weekend all, ~Don

    Thanks, Nick. Those covers are what compelled me to tote them the our weekly toasting session. They appreciate elders there. Is that beauty you posted a swell center serpentine pen? Very good looking.

    Thanks, Jack.

    Thanks, r8shell.

    Those are very cool. Happy weekend to you, too.

    Travel safely, Jake. May your travels be smooth.

    Those are very cool!

    You are correct. The beers were doomed from the start. :D:D:D

    Very very nice. Most interesting barlows. Would like to hear more about them.

    Haven’t had this little gem out to play in a while so figured this weekend it’s time.
    Perfection at its finest :)

    Thanks Vince, I took it early this morning as I was leaving for work. Just stopped and set them on my back porch step and took the pic. Morning sun was to my back, so I hit the lighting just right, more by dumb luck than design lol. I used the "auto" touch up feature and added a bit "vignette" feature which shades the corners a little. I'm usually not quick with a pun so when one pops into my head I run with it lol

    I've been guilty of holding out like that on some knives that I really ought to just carry (including a #77 Washington Punch Knife in Smooth Autumn Gold Bone, one of the first few GEC's I bought, but I haven't carried it yet).

    Beautiful jigging on that one, Stuart! :thumbsup:

    The Cutsure is a contract knife I'm fairly sure came from Utica by comparison to known Kutmaster/Utica Barlows. I did a photo exposition featuring it and some Utica Barlows on another knife forum but I can't easily find it and it's already past my bedtime tonight. :D I am infatuated with the bolster stamp, it is one of the most ornate and unique ones I've seen on any Barlow.



    The 4⅛" XTRA Barlow is from Dixon Cutlery. Beyond that, I have no clue of its origin, age or history. It is definitely prewar, has peened pins, and features the angular unhafted bone typical of German Barlows from the first half of the 20th. It's the only one I've ever seen. I believe it was slightly tipped before I got it, so a better example would probably feature more blade length than mine.

    Recently, I bought the guts to a ‘76 Fender Pro Reverb Amplifier.
    My dream amp.

    My band leader’s husband built a cabinet for me out of some old cherry panels that came out of a lawyer’s office (I didn’t need my boards after all). He builds custom furniture that are near heirloom quality and has a great shop.

    Here, I’ve got it sanded, and have started rubbing on some Danish oil.

    The two 12” speakers arrived today, other bits and pieces are on order.

    To show my gratitude, I gave him my most recent home made knife. 3E73AE6B-9D9A-4ECD-A013-A2008E8FC295.jpeg 639C20BE-F989-4D16-A7FE-25A79625D0E3.jpeg

    I sure do appreciate elders too. Yes it’s a Robeson swell center serpentine pen, thanks Stuart!
