ms6852, meet Barlow:
Yup, @ms6852 i think at this point a Barlow is a style of knife rather than a manufacturer although I’m sure in the beginning it was not that way. A teardrop shape with a rather large bolster on one end.
I get the Woodsmen magazine and they just happen to have a article on Barlow pocket knives this month. Didn't know much about them till i read it. Also didn't realize i had one until i read it.
Mine was one of the older ones, it had 1 blade and it held a good edge.
It was my first knife given to me by my Big Sister in 1960. I was 6.
Rest in peace Jackie.
I'm carrying a "Queen" brand barlow style right now.2 blade and looks like the real Barlow pictured.
This company makes a fire starter and fits where the toothpick goes. I have replaced my toothpicks with the fire starter which the company names the firefly on all my knives. I too never had a use for the tooth pick.
I like it!
Where can I get one??
Smoky Mountain Knife Works has quite a few of the Barlow "design" knives for sale.
Thanks, I think I need another knife, my Grandson needs one too. He has about 70 knives.
I have quit counting mine!
Mine is right here...dont know what it's called but I leave it open at my table just like this for what ever I need.
I have two older Champions. I love them and use them every day.
I have a slim two blade SAK which I don't think Victorinox makes anymore. I picked it up at a hardware store about 30 years age because I needed a cheap knife for a job I didn't expect to be able to retrieve a good knife from afterwards (It was in a flooded basement!) I was looking for a cheap import and this SAK happened to be the cheapest knife in the store, so the SAK it was.
It not only did the job but I was able to find it after the muck was pumped out of the cellar so I cleaned it up and carried it on my walk this very evening. The Victorinox crest with Swiss Cross has long worn off the red scales
Swiss army knives are great, I have one somewhere in my collection. The impenetrable plastic is a necessary evil these days to combat all the thieves. Pretty sad, you used to be able to handle things before you bought them. One of my LGS's has tie wraps on all the firearm's actions so you can't check them. These are the times we live in.
