    You might say I favor Barlows.

    Will go back and read the thread through, but here are my thoughts...

    For ordinary everyday, the Peanut is perfect for me. I also like the Penknife. I've grown fond of the simple yellow synthetic scales for some reason. No rationale other than I like the look.

    The Swayback Jack is second, or near perfect.

    That said, I'm carrying a Texas Jack most days now because it is new to me, and once in a while a Large Stockman on the belt. I think the Texas Jack is a good size for a pocket knife when wearing jeans. When the newness of the jack wears off I'll probably go back to alternating between the Peanut and the Penknife.

    And if it isn't obvious, I favor Case.

    I don't have any yet, but I like the design of the seahorse whittler as a variance to a stockman. I have one small Texas toothpick; rarely see larger ones btw on any website!

    Haven't quite figured out what the Texas toothpick, at least the small ones, are good for. Like to hear your thoughts on the subject!

    L'chaim!

    Why is it so impossible to find the large toothpicks!? There used to be 5" toothpicks around years ago but you're right, it's just hard to find them now. I'd definitely buy a large case toothpick if it was available.

    Chag Sameach!

    They can be allusive. Most of the ones I posted above were SFO's with a very limited supply. The TC Barlows and Northwoods generally sell out in a matter of hours or even minutes when they are released.

    I like wharncliffe style blades and Barlow style knives. I have my eye on a GEC Calf Pen.

    Don't feel too bad. I've found precious few; one (a supposed Schrade Old Timer made in China) I had to return. Couldn't open blades for love nor money!

    L'chaim!

    I don't recall who it was, but someone drew my attention to the fact that BladeHQ actually carry a pretty diverse selection (both manufacturers and patterns) of traditional knives, including various toothpick styles and the European styles that preceded them.

    I haven't quite figured out if I should thank that person or mutter cusses under my breath... my bank account has suffered since learning this! LOL

    L'chaim!
