    Very nice covers on that one for sure! I kinda felt the same way about that one armed barlow,even though its a relatively recent addition to my collection. It was unused,unsharpened minty fresh in a great pattern. But I came to the same conclusion that if I liked so much why not carry it and enjoy it! Sometimes "unwise" in a collective sense is wise for our soul. Sometimes I think its like owning an original 60's Shelby mustang, could I really fully appreciate it unless I drove it?

    Thanks Gev! That’s a good close guess but it’s a Robeson. Cattaraugus and Robeson bones do look a lot alike sometimes. Your Saynor is so gooooood Gev! Always love seeing that knife.

    Thanks Mark!!! You certainly have an outstanding 77 with lovely covers!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Great job Steve; looks very cool!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thanks Gev!!! What a beauty you have today; loving the stag with the rattail bolsters, wow!:rolleyes::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thanks Harvey!!! Your "New oldie" is an amazing example of a stag covered lamb; just awesome!:thumbsup::thumbsup::D
    Very cool Dave; if it slices well it's a knife worth using!:thumbsup::thumbsup:;)
    Thanks @315!!! I've noticed the bone on this latest Case CV certainly does vary; the barehead jack has the original covers.:) Very cool:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: shot of your Imperial Frontier; one of my favorite old cutlers!:cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Wonderful series of images Dan; awesome how tame that lil fella is!:D:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Great shots of your two stag covered beauties Gary!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:
    Thats interesting as I was "on the fence" between Catt and Robeson, though my first impulse was Robeson based on the bolsters; quite a beauty Nick!;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I really like the upper knife JJ.
    The original or very early pattern eh, the very first ones had wooden handles?
    Wonderful robust knife.

    Thanks Michael! It's a soldier from 1957, prior to the Alox versions of the early 1960's the soldiers were all "bare head" designs and had the inventory "control stamp" that showed they passed the Swiss army inspection. The really old ones from the 1890's (oiled oak covers) or 1901 forward (fiber type plastic and later plastic covers) were somewhat larger, quite rare and highly sought after!
