For many people the only knife for every day carry is a Barlow. Our new Medium Barlow Lockback is the perfect knife for that purpose. This is a Standard Barlow handle; that is a Swell End Jack shape with a Long Bolster. This is where we leave the Old Fashioned Barlow. I have put into this handle my "Zulu Spear" blade with a long pull and a cut swedge, and instead of being the typical slipjoint it is a lockback. The liners and bolsters are stainless steel and the 2-7/8" blade is 8Cr13MoV high carbon stainless heat treated to 57-59 Rc. Measures 3-1/2" closed and weighs about 2.9 oz, depending on the handle material. Small enough to ride in your pocket with keys and change, and just the right size for all those every day cutting chores. If you are a Barlow person then you want great quality and great value, you'll not find better. Made in China.
