2 Cripple Creeks And A Cargill

Post by JohnR » Sat Mar 31, 2018 11:16 am

Picked up 2 Cripple Creeks and a stag Barlow just marked Cargill. The Nutmeg State Barlow has no date and came in a box with an insert. From what I can find out the stag Barlow would have been one of Bob Cargill's custom knives made pre Cripple Creek. The third knife is a Knife World Moose pattern.

Not a big Barlow fan but you guys may convert me showing knives like those two. I especially like the stag one. Nice grab.
