Multi-purpose camping knives probably never looked like this. However, it’s fun to imagine a cave man creating a portable tool that can cut, hammer, and scoop all in one neat device strapped to his loincloth.

We’ve come a long way since stone age tools and knives. Today Engraved Kershaw Knives are the pinnacle of the pocket knife industry. Kershaw stands for quality, life-time guaranteed knives. The Scallion Camo Knife and the Leek Knife are two of the most popular ones today. Kershaw has developed a winning combination of features:

  • SpeedSafeĀ® –Our assisted-open patented feature.
  • Flipper–A stainless steel protrusion near the tang of the blade to make it easy for you to open.
  • Frame Lock–A safety feature to keep your knife open while you are using it.

9 Barlow Knives That You Didn’t Know Existed

When you hear the words “barlow knives”,

Schrade Jackmaster Barlow

most people think about the old fashioned knives that were invented in England in 1670. More of their background is shown here on “History of Barlow Knives“. These knives were built rugged, with an over-sized brass bolster, so the blade was firmly secured in its cradle. They were, and still are, 3 3/8” long closed. Their familiar slight tear-drop shaped makes it comfortable in the palm of your hand when using it. They come in all prices, and are made by many knife manufacturers around the world.

But here are 9 Barlow knives that you may not have heard of. They aren’t fashioned after the famous barlows. They used to be made by the Barlow company in Los Angeles, California until the turn of this century. Barlow was bought out by another company, which kept the trade name. This company, Norwood, was bought out by Bic Graphic about 10 years ago. These Barlow knives, some of them renamed, are sought after by people who remember the original LA company, and like their quality and economy. So here are the 9 popular Barlow knives that you may not have known existed until today…..
