Bruce – What? – You’re teasing again !! – Sometimes you just have to be cruel to be kind – just saying . . .
Comes in the fancy box . . .
And this is one that deserves the upscale packaging –
The “cinnamon” bone scales are real nice . . .
Fit and finish? Simply excellent – scales/spacers – liners – bolsters – as good as it gets . . .
Blade centering is good – cell phone cameras – you either hate to love them or love to hate them!
A friend at work said it will be all right until the “plating” starts coming off the blade – he was rather shocked when he realized that it’s polished – not plated – and the carbon steel blade comes out of the box pretty damn sharp . . .
Shown here with the Schrade #278 classic 2 blade small barlow for comparison. . .
And of course as pretty as it is – Have a glamour shot – free! – no extra charge . . .
And the most incredible part of the whole thing? It’s only $16.99!! – and the obvious question – Why haven’t YOU ordered one ( or two? ) yet? In stock NOW at SMKW.COM . . . – I think I shall order a couple more to have on hand for those last minute gift “emergencies” . . .
Normally I would give you a summary with a bunch of hype extolling the virtues of this knife – The Hell with all that – if you have any affinity at all for a “Barlow” pattern knife – order one – YOU will NOT be disappointed – if you plan on Every Day Carry with it pick up a knife slip as well – it’s way too pretty to beat up in your pocket!
What’s in YOUR pocket?
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
