    Thanks for posting that. I think. Now I want one :p
    I think that's the same blue rope bone that Canal Street Co-op used on a few Red Trout knives.

    I've always liked those. Particularly the earliest ones with the birds-head pommel. In fact I used to have several. Nice to look at and to hold, but I was never tempted to use one. I suppose it was because I had long before found my favorite duo for outdoors activities, the Woodsman and Sharpfinger. The 171UH just felt wrong in my hand. Who doesn't love some Herman Williams custom work though?

    Just arrived. Serial number 00980. Maher and Grosh etch and tapered sheath. Still has the thick Staglon covers; I don't know how long this lasted, perhaps only days or weeks before they adopted the thinner ones that we expect. Seller's pic's. mg1.jpg mg4.jpg mg7.jpg mg8.jpg

    what do you mean by "thick staglon covers"? is there a thickness difference in the covers? i looked at my three and couldn't see a difference, duh, but they don't look thin.

    Really nice acquisition Jeff!

    I picked up a 34OT made for LL Bean that is new in the box, along with another Parker Frost Bison, that’s also new in the box.

    That's a nice barlow Jeff, and with scarce basket weave style jigging.

    I picked up a 61OT recently. It’s been a user for someone that’s for sure, but still plenty serviceable.

    Thanks, Paul, I'm pretty sure the jigging pre-dates the peach seed, but just what dates it covers is elusive. Any ideas on that?

    Jeff, very attractive Schrade Barlow! Those handles are great. The earliest Schrade jigging was the pick bone often associated with the arched Schrade tang stamp. Then there were a couple of different styles of jigging post pick bone what I call divot or scooped jigging. Charlie C calls the third type a basketweave style that looks much like the second type but is more irregular or disjointed and less patterned. Some think the second type was executed using the George Schrade famous jigging machine. Peach seed was the last bone jigging pattern that was used circa Schrade Cut and into the Schrade Walden era. My guess would be your Barlow is from around the early 1920s into perhaps the early to 1930s. Just my opinion hope this helps some.
