The characteristic teardrop shape of the Barlow can be traced back to the English pocket knives of the 17th century, making it certainly one of the oldest models of all. The name of the classic probably goes back to a business-minded knife manufacturer of the same name from Sheffield, who began exporting the robust knives to North America around 1800. There they immediately enjoyed great popularity and so the first Barlow models appeared in the history of the Boker Manufactory at the end of the 19th century.
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. The lightweight construction can thus completely dispense with additional metal liners. The blade is made of O1 non-stainless carbon steel and has a special acid-wash finish. It is equipped with a modern, elongated ricasso and is opened by nail nick. The operating safety of the slipjoint pocket knife is increased by a 90 degree arrestor when opening and closing. The decorative rivets are made of brass. With high-quality felt case for storage. Handmade in the Boker Knife Manufactory in Solingen.
