I think it’s fitting to carry what you collect, especially if you have a niche. I carry a Lockwood Bros farmers jack given me by Paul Hilborn on BF. I’m monogamous as to carries, I don’t switch around, I’ve carried this one for a couple years.
Dan, check this out. It’s a lot of info to digest but I think you will find it interesting. There are many things that pertain to what was happening at Walden knife. Specifically the capital investment NYK made around 1905. At this time NYK went to Drop pressing their blades and you can see production went up as the number of employees fell. At the same time Walden’s employees went up. This is during the time Simmons touted their knives as being hand forged from the finest Sheffield steel. Their is a lot there but the numbers are pretty fascinating to me. Check it out.

Woodwalker, your KK barlow would be made after 1940 for Shapleigh. Good find!
