A Few Stag Barlows For the Oregon Show

Postby orvet » Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:47 pm

The April 12-14 is the Oregon Knife Collectors Association (OKCA) annual show in Eugene Oregon. http://www.oregonknifeclub.org/
I was able to get started on some knives for the show earlier than most years. Usually it seems I’m in a panic the week before the show trying to get everything ready, this year I started out getting things ready by a couple weeks ago. Hopefully with six weeks to prepare I will have some cool stuff for the show.

I have several Works In Progress, (WIP) and I’m doing a number of Barlows in stag. I don’t have time at the moment post each one separately, so I thought I would show you what I am doing in one big thread. This is just a quick glance some of the things I’ve got going that are probably a little closer to being finished then some of the others.

To give you a look at the quality stag I am using here is one picture that shows four Barlows and a Schrade 123OT. It only shows one side of the handle but it can give you an idea of the nice stag. I will update from time to time with more pictures as I finish up the knives.

I know this is not a Barlow but I know you stag lovers will probably like this one Schrade-Walden 165OT with stag. Pardon the Gorilla Tape on this one, it's sharp! It was tough to find stag thick enough to replace the original handles but for a small fortune… I found a set. I can’t wait to get it finished!

Just my opinion ...... I think they're off to a very good start to being extremely desirable knives. ::tu:: ::tu::

Even though they are unfinished they really look nice, Dale.

Nicely figured stag Dale and the red bone will pop on that last knife as well. I look forward to seeing pics of them finished. ::tu::

Thanks Glenn,
I'm hoping to make some progress on these today, if I have time I'll post some updates.

Several years ago at the Oregon show I bought a piece of stag about 5 to 6 inches long with beautiful uniform popcorn. I bought it from (the late) Wayne Goddard whose table was right behind mine. Over the years I got a lot of neat tools, tips, tricks, information and handle material from him. This particular piece of stag; was the most perfect one I had ever seen except it had a hole drilled into it from the side and another small hole drilled for a pin. Wayne told me he had made it for a handle to something or other but had never used it. I was able to get one really nice set of scales out of that piece of stag. I'll post them later also.

Okay, it was smaller than I thought it was, just over 3 in but you can see the beautiful popcorn on this piece of stag. It could have been a little longer and I would have probably used it as a hidden tang fixed blade handle, but now it will have to work as a folder handle.
I thought this piece was remarkably well figured.

I didn't get a chance to post pictures of these knives before I left for the show, unfortunately I took some pictures because the John Primble and the Schrade went home with someone else.
The Utica is still my workbench unfinished, the Case Barlow will soon be looked at in my store, the Schrade Walden 165OT is currently listed in my store and the 124UH, (I mistakenly listed it as a 123OT), will soon be listed in my store also.

I hope you enjoy the updated pictures.

JOHN PRIMBLE BARLOW:

I just discovered I forgot to take any pictures of the completed Schrade Barlow! ::dang::

There are a number of pictures of the 165OT listed in my store, Orvet Customs, here on AAPK. Instead of reposting some of those pictures here I will post some pictures of the Remington fixed blade that I made and to the show. It will be listed in my store I get a chance to get things caught up.

I got the blank for this Remington around 2007 or 2008, after the Camillus bankruptcy auction. So if you recall there were lots of unfinished Camillus made blades floating around the web. I bought several lot quantities of Camillus blades and still buy them now when I see them at a reasonable price in good condition. I hope you enjoy the pictures of this Remington:

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I will have more pictures coming in the days ahead as I have opportunity to photograph them getting them ready for my store.
Thanks again for your feedback and your support. ::tu::
