    I happened to be carrying my Clip point 77 Barlow today when I got the text about the preorder. I was finally not super busy when the text came and I was able to get in on this one!

    I am looking forward to adding the sawcut green #77 clip to this Wharncliffe, which is also pinchable.

    Some great looking barlows being posted lately!

    I feel your pain. When I first saw the crack on my 77 my heart sank. I've been lucky though. The crack seems to have stabilized. Now it just adds to the character. Post some pics before you get the handles redone.

    This beauty is aging quite nicely.

    The more I think about it the more I kick myself for not getting one of those sawcut green bones. I just know those are going to come out looking great!

    This is one of the most beautiful clip point blades ever (to me). Hoping to get my hands on one in African Blackwood...if one ever pops up.

    I love how your blades always blacken up like that! Mine dont seem to patina the same way. Great knife, and I'm sure whatever you pick for your repair, It'll be spectacular!

    Missed out on the early reservation; any word on if there will be more opportunities? Or will there still be some for the general public?
