I know that the small and large Barlow most recently marketed under the Colonel Coon marque are Queen builds. I have a large Col. Coon and it is a dead match for the Queen large Barlow pattern.

If the smooth "autumn bone" is that smooth orange I keep seeing online, I've had my eye on it a while and will probably (eventually) pull the trigger. ::smirk:: This one, too, is definitely Queen built (#69 pattern).

I have one of those Col. Coon knives. It is made by Queen. All I can tell you is that my autumn bone barlow has excellent F&F and I am highly pleased with it.
Looking for clean EOs from very good to excellent to minty to new.
