Richard R from Texas, USA -
Barlow knives originated in Sheffield, and have been widely copied since the pattern was first made. They are simple, sharp, and rugged. I have owned several Barlows over the years, and strongly prefer the Wright's flat bolster version for its pocket friendly flat design and safe stout spring, combined with a carbon steel blade that can be honed razor sharp and stays sharp longer than most stainless.

UK Legal Knives was very quick in filling my order (placed through Ebay) and had it shipped and to my door in Texas in less than a week.

The Barlow pocket knife originates from a Sheffield knife maker named Barlow, over 300 years ago. Harold L. Peterson, author of 'American Knives' has traced the name back to 1779 in American records. Mark Twain refers to a Barlow pocket knife in his 1876 novel 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer'.The pocket knife was originally a large, single blade, low cost folding work knife. For added strength, the metal handle bolster was extended to approximately one third of the length of the handle. The bolster is the part of the handle which encases the blade pivot and is the point of greatest strain in a folding pocket knife.
