Calendar shot Farside, great color, the rings, the city water cover, the color in that TC. Wow. And that's one of the coolest TC's I've ever seen. Wow. Remember me if you ever want to let it go. Can't imagine that. I can't look away.

Alfred (Farside), what is the name for that barlow and what are the handles ? Too bad your excellent pic is at the very bottom of the page. Won't get seen as much as if it were close to top of a page and it deserves to be seen ++.

Good looking knives, bigbore. I'm a huge fan of the Bens and Babylons...I understand there is going to be another run of 65's but it sounds like they're all going to be Farm & Field fish knives :(

Thank you. This was Charlie Campagna's first Ancient TC Barlow from 2015. One of my favorite's. Amazing blade with stamp. I believe this is the only stamp GEC has done on a blade. Has the best walk & talk too. Handle is Smooth Parchment Bone. There were two other covers I believe (Scratted Parchment & Ebony).

Thank you very much. Just an iPhone shot in our yard this morning. Here it is with the 2nd Ancient release.

Great pair Farside, especially like the thin spear and thin lambsfoot on those two. Plus the TC package. Great odd three legged stamp too. Definitely unique and beautiful style and that color on the parchment bone is soooooooooo fine. Great ones.
I have been carrying and loving on these two lately. This is about the size and compliment of my Case Coke Bottles and has totally replaced them. Better sized and larger main, more authoritative snap and action, and the great looking bone. I carry less of about everything lately except GEC.

That green is drop dead gorgeous. I’m a nut for green knives. I didn’t know they had TC Barlows in green. Now I have a new knife to focus on finding.
I only have a red one and a natural smooth white TC barlow. Very nice.

Thank you. It is for sure some of the best green from GEC. Plus my favorite jigging.

Some very nice knives posted here. It is so hard to pick a favorite I think I'll post a few of my favorites hope that's ok. I guess if I had to absolutely pick one it would still be a toss up between the 77 Northfield Barlow and the 77 Washington Jack.

Here here redden, you nailed it on those 77s. I would echo that. 77s are great ones. Every one I've had rocks.

Thank you. This 77 checks all the boxes for me + Copperhead is my favorite GEC color.
