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. Anybody know what that's all about?
These are all TruSharp and essentially as-pictured. They are not taking orders until Shot Show (end of January); so I don’t really have a delivery date and details are subject to change.
But I think we have enough information to offer reservations on them.

Those folks don't mess around with a knife order! The blades have very nice W&T (a snappy "6" both ways), nice F&F, an even deep blue color on evenly jigged bone (in my pictures the pile side color is correct - the mark side color is darker in the picture than in reality). Backspring pressure is even on open and on close (this knife has half-stops). Blade is "using sharp" right out of the box; box marked as packaged on 12/13/18 but tang is stamped for 2019. The bolster stamp is very smooth (only black in the picture - I don't think it is your everyday etch if it is an etch). Case did themselves proud on this re-introduction of the traditional Case Barlow - there is nothing not to like about his knife! Happy New Year! OH

I hope the quality is good on these. We know it's been a hit or miss lately
