    A bunch of Barlows, more than likely single blades, any one of witch cost a hole bunch more than all the two blade Barlows that I have, combined?
    Oh, and the board they are on is weathered, with no nail or screw holes visible.

    I haven't been in a classroom in 46 years. I forget what a leaning rectangle is called. Surprisingly, I've never had to use that word, or deal with whatever it is, in all the jobs I had between 1969, and when I was forced to retire for health reasons three years ago. Not even when I was a mobile and fabrication welder from 1974 or 1975 to 1978. (yeah, sometimes I wonder if leaving that profession was a "wise" decision.)
    Shockingly, I have not come across or had to deal with one of them things since I retired, either. :)

    EDIT: An BING! search says a leaning rectangle is called a "Parallelogram". :D

    My old 3rd cut stag :)

    One nice collection of GEC Barlows. He's only missing a few to complete it.

    Lol...you people got jokes. :thumbsup:

    When I first saw this pic, I remember thinking the knife in the top row, fourth from the right is the quintessential barlow. It would make a great user.

    I thought that a person's reaction to this picture would be a good indication of whether or not said person is more a user or collector.

    $300 per?!?!? Is that how much the TCs go for nowadays? That's bananas. :confused:

    I thought the same about the top row second from left... stunning!

    And I have no idea how much they actually go for. Probably a pretty penny, but I've never tried for one.

    idk currently, but my ocd is going off the charts due to the slightly unleveled placements

    What occurred to me was not a single Spear, Sheepfoot, or One-Arm-Man main blade in the bunch! I think you have enough Clip blades to make it through. OH

    if I look right in the middle, and I squint my eyes...
    I can see money flying out of wallet...
    or maybe my Capital One card self destructing...

    They are mostly oriented the same way, except the 4th and 5th from the left on the bottom. The gap there caught my eye immediately.

    “I like barlows, but not THAT much.”

    “If they’ve made such a variety of just single blade clips, the variety if other blades were included must be staggering.”
