Barlow Returns!!

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

That's long overdue...now, if they make nice (non-SMKW-looking, guady scales) it can be even better

This should answer all three of your questions:

The most recent Case Barlows are pattern x2009 (x2009 1/2 for clip master blade), 3 3/8" closed length. Technically there could be a x1009 (1/2) but one-blade 009 Barlows seem to be rarer than hen's teeth, if in fact any exist.

With any luck they will run some more 62009R (one-armed man or "razor" blade) which I don't think we've seen from Case since the early '70s. ::paranoid:: ::smirk:: Make red sawcut bone great again! :mrgreen:

SHC I believe is Shepherd Hills Cutlery, a knife retailer.

I avoid following links from one site to another so I went directly to Shepherd Hills Cutlery. I found both 62009 1/2 and 61009 listed as being back ordered. I assume that they sold a significant number of 61009 spear point Barlows while they had them. Is it only the clip point 61009 1/2 that you haven't been able to find?

The Case® Barlow, a traditional favorite, will be previewed to the public at the 2019 SHOT Show, taking place in Las Vegas from January 22 – 25.

^^ This taken directly from the SHC web page.
All 7 knives on the page are "backordered", so I would presume
they will not release any of them until after (or during) the SHOT Show ....

Looks like they're taking a page from GEC's bullsnot selling tactics ...... ::td::

This is purely speculation on my part, based solely on the available information.
Feel free to dispute this theory.

Any time CASE takes a knife out of the vault they debut it at the Shot Show then it hits the market..
Don't know what you mean by "GEC bullsnot selling tactics" ?? ::shrug:: GEC makes limited amount of a run.. CASE does not do this..

In case anyone besides me is up and checking emails this morning, Shepherd Hills Cutlery is taking orders on the Pilot Test Run Barlow. 2 blades and natural smooth bone. Better hurry, the last pilot test run I saw ran out in under 1/2 hour.

Thanks for the heads up, ordered one of the blue Rogers bone with single Spear blade from Shepherd Hills; been needing that variation of barlow and I like the bolster etch as well. OH

FYI, CK has these on earlier reserve and they are a bit less expensive than Shepherd Hills. But Shepherd Hills got the Pilot test run of the smooth natural bone. I don’t see those at CK.

I like everything about that one too. Resisting the urge because I don't really need any new knives. Sure is nice though.

The SHC website has me confused. In the header they state that these will be "previewed to the public" at the SHOT Show in January yet they state that this model and some others are shipping this week. ::shrug:: Anybody know what that's all about?
