Purchase the A. Wright Knives, Sheffield Carbon Steel Barlow Pocket Knife
- A. Wright, Sheffield, Barlow folding pocket knife 60W
- Measures approx 9cm (3.5 inches) closed , 16 cm (6.25 inches) open
- 7 cm (2.75 inches) long, flat grind, clip point, C70 carbon steel blade
- Brass handle liners, nickel silver bolsters, rosewood handle scales
- Hand made in Sheffield, England
Note: carbon steel knives should be cleaned and oiled after use to prevent corrosion, natural wood grain contains lines and grooves, this is not a fault. Slight dents/chips in wood handle scales around rivets is normal in hand made knives. A. Wright folding knives have a very strong backspring when new.
A broad robust countryman's pocket knife, well finished exterior, nice scales, fit for hard work.
The Spring is powerful, not easy to open, but hopefully will ease up with use. Delivered with a very basic blunt grind (and a blued spot on the tip, a bit too fast lads?) criticism- the action is very gritty and rough, especially around the half stop mark, these are bearing surfaces, and a little more care should be taken, even if it adds a few pounds to the cost?

This is a sturdy and well-made knife. My only complaint is that it's a bit too stiff to easily open, I really have to work at it a bit more than I'd like. But I guess that just speaks to the strength of the spring and joint, which is one reason I bought this knife.
It's a good size and blade style and although a bit heftier than my normal (Victorinox Bantam in Alox) is a good choise for EDC.
All in all, a good value and I expect to have this knife a long time.

This is a very solid knife carefully made from traditional materials. The nickel silver bolsters and brass liners make it quite heavy, and the spring is very strong, so it takes a little effort to open the blade. The rosewood scales are a lovely rich dark wood, and in general the knife feels good in the hand. Mine is nicely finished. The carbon steel blade is ground at a practical angle for everyday cutting jobs, but does take and hold a good edge. Recommended to anyone who needs a practical and attractive traditional pocket knife.
