The other handle was ebony on the 1st ancients. I think it was coined "variated ebony' or something as it was chosen due to its light streaks throughout.

Nice to see these Barlows hitting the street! Thanks for posting yours Perry, and everyone else as well. From the discussion, a little info is in order. Here is a picture of the Original Ancient run, with the various handles, with a New Ancient at the top.
The rest are, counting downward;
- Scratted Bone
- Parchment Bone
- Variegated Ebony (lighter)
- Soup Bone (very few of these made)
- Variegated Ebony (darker)

Here is a shady photo of my 2018 Ancient between a 2015 Ancient and a 2ot. A recreation of that dark 2ot bone would look pretty fine.

Greg, I just choose what I personally like! It is rewarding to know that so many people and I agree on those choices!!

Looks like you choose the cream of the crop, Rob!!

I am a big GEC fan and a big Charlie C. fan but i have no Charlie C. GEC Barlow knives. They are so hot you have to live in Fast Computerland to score at initial release. Trying to get one on the secondary market is not for me. I have seen some sell for over $450. I don't want to feed the flippers.
I do have a Charlie C. #15 Rope Knife which is by far the best of these knives(Rope knives).

I'm in the same boat KJ, though I'm very new to the game. I just can't afford most of the flipped prices. Funny thought, maybe in the future we'll start to see high end routers like the Nighthawk marketed for gamers and knife buyers :lol:
I'll have to look up that Charlie C Rope knife. I bet it's really nice, I really like the rope knife. (Navy Brat)

O.K. so these are not the just released Old Musky Bone 15's but they are 15's and the Boy's Knife is a 2018 knife.
The Tidioute Navy Knife in Red Linen Micarta and Charlie C's Rope knife are both from 2015.
I am posting these in response to: "I'll have to look up that Charlie C Rope knife. I bet it's really nice, I really like the rope knife. (Navy Brat)"
Notice the Charlie C. knife just 'pops',even though the Red Linen Micarta is also a very attractive knife in there for comparison.
