    Guardians, my Hartshead Barlow arrived in today mail:thumbsup: and after much running back and forth my computer is back from the shop, supposedly exorcised of all demons and gremlins:rolleyes: Time will tell but so far, so good. Only have a gazillion pages to try and catch up on!
    Here it is as it came so lovingly packaged from Jack. More photos after I get her flushed and oiled...

    Well, I am a bright Chartreuse green with envy seeing all these wonderful Hartshead Barlow models from everyone in such beautiful settings, thanks all!!!
    Mine is on the way via a rocket ship from England. :)
    Also nice to see that old family Razor, donn.
    Enclosed is my trusty stag Wright Lambfoot next to my favorite candies which are no longer made but still available with a little hunting.
    These Necco candy wafers tend to end up in the love them or hate them category by most (older) people. :)

    My house number is 1217, and I saw yesterday that this thread was approaching that page number. So my plan was to make as many posts on that page as I could to kind of make it mine! But I severely underestimated the pace of the thread, and page 1217 has come and gone with zero posts from me! :rolleyes::thumbsdown::mad:

    Couple of splendid photos of your stupendous new lambsfoot models, Dylan! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    Nice reply in the spirit of my silly post, Jack; thanks! :p:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks for the reminder about post-delivery obligations, Jack! ;):thumbsup:

    That's a difference between American and British English of which I wasn't aware; thanks, David. :cool::cool::thumbsup:
    I may be a natural, but there's always the question of "natural WHAT?" :rolleyes: Who IS Dan Dare? Google didn't give me anything that looked right for the context.

    I like that pic with your "Eye of Sauron" lambsfoot and the razor VERY much, David! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Looking at your stag Hartshead Barlow is reminiscent of gazing into a campfire, Vince! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Dave, I usually don't like taking orders from people, but in the case of your commands here, I'll make an exception! :p:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Greg, I don't dare carry that old pocket watch because I got it from my Dad, who got it from his father, who got it from his uncle, who got it as a gift for n years of service from a Chicago railroad for which he worked. (For the past 6 months, I've been wearing a FitBit on my wrist and carrying my old Casio wristwatch in my pocket because I can't read the FitBit watch outside because of glare. :rolleyes:)

    Three Lambs in a Tub!!
    Great storage idea, John! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Congratulations on the arrival of your Hartshead Barlows, José! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Both stag and rosewood look superb!

    Nice pics of Hartshead Barlows, both rosewood and stag, with baked goods, Harvey & John! :thumbsup::thumbsup::cool: Harvey, when I was a young man, I'd get quite excited if a young woman told me, "I like parkin." Somehow, you making the same statement doesn't do much for me. :rolleyes::D I am quite moved by the line of demarcation on your rosewood, though! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, John; great job with the Y, and I think OG proposed a good X example. :):thumbsup::cool:

    True enough, Taylor, and IMHO that's a crazy-great pic you took of that knife! :cool::cool::thumbsup: The color of the concrete block is incredible!

    Greg, that's a good use for your tin! :thumbsup::cool::cool: What do you put in your whittling first aid kit? I should probably consider making one. I remember whittling at the bus stop 3 years ago, and my knife slipped while struggling with a knot in the wood and sliced my holding thumb. (I was foolishly whittling without a glove or thumb guard on either hand. :() I had to wrap my bleeding thumb in my wet used towel from my gym bag as the bus pulled up.

    My favorite rosewood Hartshead photo so far, Dwight; outstanding! :eek::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    That fetching photo has me pining for my rosewood Hartshead Barlow's arrival, Rachel! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks, FBC. :) Congrats on the new rosewood Hartshead, and on the final day of the old job! :cool::cool::thumbsup: Best wishes for the next one.

    Good wood, Vince, and a very pleasant patina! :thumbsup::cool::cool:

    Majestic photo, Alan! :thumbsup::cool::thumbsup:

    Lam Jack all week for me:

    Necco wafers are no longer being made? :(
    I hope you don't have to pine fir long, GT. You'll soon have it in hand ready to spruce up, and you won't be ever green with envy.

    Thanks GT for the compliment.

    Lam Jack is looking fine and the Autumn leaf is a welcome sight already. Like Vince said I am ready for Fall. :) Looking forward to seeing your new barlow!

    Hey GT. We use to say “Let’s go to the beach and watch the submarine race. I don’t remember that working too well...but sometimes...:) Fine looking Lam Jack.

    @pjsjr Congratulations Preston. Hope you thought the wait was worth it, because it’s gorgeous. Happy for you.

    @dc50 Dave, I just love your style.

    @Fodderwing Cool Image, Dwight.

    @waynorth These four are the best things out of 2019. Kudos to you and @Jack Black

    Wanted to wait for sunset to shoot this one. Again, Thank you Barry.

    My Hartshead Barlow with rosewood covers arrived this afternoon! I took a couple of quick photos before my camera batteries gave up the ghost, and want to post one tonight before bedtime as an official record of the arrival. You'll notice signs, near the tang and on the protruding spring in this first pic of the pile side, that I haven't even made time to flush the knife yet.
    Thanks again to Jack Black for making this happen, and I hope to have "official debut photos" Thursday or Friday.
