    Mine are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Really looking forward to owning these knives. It's Petit LeMans weekend, so it's a good surprise to see them, before I have to wait until Sunday.

    Many firsts for me in owning these knives - I'm really excited!

    Lucky, I still don't have tracking yet. I didn't think they were shipping until today.

    For those who are waiting to see Copperhead saw cut...

    My 2015 Spear/Coping went in for repair of a cracked scale and was refitted with Copperhead scales.

    I'll post mine for sure if anyone else hasn't by the time I get them.

    I didn't either, then I realized I had an unread email from yesterday. I was ecstatic!

    For the rest of us, could you grind that spear down to a clip point and file in the matchstriker serrations on the long pull? Y'know, just to help us with the visualization. ;)

    Very nice, AR. Might have to start "dropping" a few of my knives on the tile floor, too. ;):p

    LOL I was heart-broken when it happened, but oh well that's life. I sure did miss it and am so happy to have it back. The Copperhead scales are beautiful and I'm adjusting to the new color! :thumbup:

    I put shag carpeting even in the kitchen to help avoid such tragedies. Priorities.

    On a serious note, that's one reason I generally prefer bolsters on both ends of bone-handled knives. Of course that would look silly on a Barlow, but it's a personal preference on other patterns. Though I have violated that preference from time to time.

    Lol, the agony of The Wait - we all go through it, over and over far too offen!

    I also like bolsters at both ends, but yes on the Barlow they just don't fit.

    Arizona!!!!! Glad you got your baby back. I think it looks great with copperhead saw cut covers. I was glad to hear how well they took care of you.

    Thanks, yes GEC's customer service was great. Chris called me to discuss the available scales and said they'd be putting my knife through with this run of 77's. It all turned out well :thumbup:

    Your knife wasn't fixed, it was upgraded!
