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 Green 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 acid washed finished, drop-point blade is 2.8" of O1 non-stainless carbon steel has a false edge top giving it a modified spear-point look. It has a closed length of 3-3/8" and weighs in at 1.2 ounces. The handle has full length Green Canvas Micarta handle scales front and back with brass hardware. This knife comes to you new in original box with papers and a high-quality felt case for storage.
The 01 carbon steel blade should be kept clean and oiled.
This is a classic pocket knife named EDC for good reason. Tell everyone you got yours at KnifeCommand.com.
