Boker's description is great..."The typical teardrop shape of the Barlow goes back to 17th-century English pocketknives, which certainly makes it one of the world's oldest knife models. The knife probably got its name from the business-savvy knife producer in Sheffield who began exporting the sturdy knife to North America around 1800. It became very popular from the start there. By the end of the 19th century, the first Barlow models appeared in the history of the Boker Manufactory."
This integrally constructed version of the newly interpreted Boker Barlow Prime goes without the characteristic bolsters and is instead equipped with continuous, pleasantly contoured handle scales made of black Canvas Micarta. It has a modern elongated ricasso and a slipjoint made more secure with a 90-degree lock-in when opening or closing.
The Barlow Prime EDC measures 6.1" open. The satin finished, drop-point blade is 2.8" of N690 stainless steel has a false edge top giving it a modified spear-point look with an HRC of 60-61. It has a closed length of 3-3/8" and weighs in at 1.2 ounces. The handle has full length Black Canvas Micarta handle scales front and back. This knife comes to you new in original box with papers and a high-quality felt case for storage.
This is a classic pocket knife named EDC for good reason. Tell everyone you got yours at KnifeCommand.com.
