    Otherwise known as the Complete Charlie Campagna Collection.

    Anybody have the entire listing of Charlie's SFOs? I thought it would be beneficial, for educational purposes and the historical record, to have a reference to consult.

    1. Robeson Harness Jack, HJ1
    2. Schatt & Morgan Harness Jack, HJ2 (2 stag, 9 candy stripe celluloid, unknown number in goldenroot bone, unknown number in ebony)
    3. Schatt & Morgan Harness Jack, HJ3
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    #. Waynorth Cutlery Coke Bottle (African Blackwood)
    #. Waynorth Cutlery Lamb Foot (300 chestnut jigged bone, 200 Gabon Ebony, 27 smooth white bone GEC Rendezvous Specials)
    #. Waynorth Cutlery Black Jack (Gabon Ebony)

    I've been enamored with Charlie's knives ever since the HJ2, but as you can tell there is a huge gap in my knowledge. I'd appreciate it if any of my fellow forumites can provide the necessary info to fill in the blanks.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. The pictures are great, but I was hoping for a bit more detail. Like order of release, cover materials, numbers made, etc.

    click on some of the imbedded links, you can find such details on the harness jacks. Also the page of TC Barlows includes such lists.

    A "Huge" (in some folk's opinion. I think the size was/is "just right") 4 Blade "Texas Camp Knife " in 2018 … or was it 2017?. (GEC)

    There was a "Boy's Knife" in 2019 with a nifty old timey lanyard that anchored to a shirt or vest button. I forget which GEC pattern number number it was on.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any of Charlie's SFO's.

    If you go to GEC > Information > Production Totals and click on the year choice, Charlie's SFOs are listed.

    If you follow the links posted in the latest CC SFO'S thread they will tell you at least the information about the Queen make HJ'S.
    HJ # 1 was make in `05, there were 100 of each cover made plus the specials.
    On the Queen knives there are etched the # of that particular cover made.
    HJ # 4 & 5 there were only a dozen made of each. After that you will have to go to GEC'S site for the # of pieces and covers made.
    Once you get up to the TC'S it gets REALLY involved :rolleyes:;) I'm sure there are over 100 different TC'S made plus the Washington jacks, sailors knives, cattle knives, camp knives, radio jacks, lambsfoot, whittlers, 48's and boy's knives.... I'm sure that I'm missing some other patterns!:eek:
    The "Charlow Barlow" thread has ALL the TC information! :D:cool:

    Most importantly, who has the entire set and is willing to post a picture of them all together? ;) I'd love to see such a display if it exists...

    Eric's Jack by Canal Street was a Charlie Campagna SFO. (And if Forum knives count, he organized those for several years running).

    Really? I don't think that Charlie had anything to do with Eric's Jack. But I have been wrong before! :rolleyes: I'll have to ask him.....

    I'm afraid that with so many knives the pic would have to be from to far away to make a good photo. I would guess at least 200 knives would be involved.

    Here is a link to Charlie's Birthday thread where almost all the TC's are in a display, the two I'm missing are explained there. I think it gives you a pretty good idea of what I'm trying to say.... just to many knives for a photograph! :D
    https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/happy-birthday-charlie.1684849/

    Except for a few odds and ends I have almost every knife that Charlie has commissioned and they all have been posted here on the Traditional Forum.

    That's awesome Dave. I suspected that if anyone had the goods it would be you.

    Charlie used to have an Empire display. Won an award or two with it IIRC. Have you ever thought of doing something similar with Charlie's SFOs? That would be an awe-inspiring show.

    Here's a link to the original thread where Eric's Jack was offered. I could be jumping to conclusions, but based on Charlie's posts in that thread, it sure seems like he placed the order for the knife.
