Very nice, Steve! That's a handful of a knife, from what I've seen of them. Derrick has some fine examples in the Northwoods brand, this is a great one!

Lovin' these beer scouts! Bill did a helluva job putting these together! I got my sawcut a week or two ago, and now I am waiting on Barry's bloodwood! Woohoo! ::ds::

I also love how easy the bail makes it to pull this guy out of a leather slip!

I just got a bloodwood SFO in yesterday from Barry, and the wood is out of control! Best one of the bunch IMO!

I am looking for some of the GEC Northfield #77 Barlow knives that were a SFO by Collector Knives last year. Can anyone help please?

I am still on the hunt for a Northfield #772115 Barlow, single spear blade, in Smooth Ivory Bone.
That is the only one I now need to complete my little assortment.
Thanks.

Did anyone look at or buy the "# 14 Lick Creek Barlow" that was released yesterday ?
I got to the dealer website at the same second he posted them. I could have nabbed one. They lasted about 3-4 minutes.
What put me off is price: $130-$140.
For similar knives in # 18 (bit smaller) or # 15 (bit larger) the prices are $82 - $94.
Are the C. Campagna SFO's (which this Lick Creek is; Lyle musta lent him the name) finished to a higher standard than a regular run GEC ? I think not but i know Charlie has very high standards so is it possible that he insists on and gets, more time spent on fitting & finishing ?
If these C. Campagna SFO's are finished to a higher standard, then i have no problem with the higher price and next time will attempt a 'nab'.

What better way to revive this old thread than by posting my AAPK #74 SFO from when it was fresh out of the tube... :mrgreen:
