The Boker Barlow Prime Curly Birch Wood Folding Knife has a teardrop-shaped blade which hearkens back to 17th-century English pocketknives. The name Barlow is thought to have originated with the knife producer in Sheffield who began exporting this knife to North America around 1800.
The modern Barlow Prime features a short bolster, elongated ricasso (the unsharpened length of blade just above the handle of a knife) and a slipjoint secured with a 90-degree lock-in when opening or closing the blade.
The handles of this beautiful knife are made of stabilized curly birch wood for an elegant, yet practical knife. The unique swirls of each piece of natural wood make this knife truly one-of-a-kind.
Engraving: Up to 8 characters can be engraved on the blade of the Boker Barlow Prime Curly Birch Wood Folding Knife.

The Boker Tree Brand Story
In the 17th century, the Boker family began a small hardware factory beneath a towering chestnut tree in Germany. This tree was incorporated into the Boker's first logo in the 1600s, and has remained an important brand symbol. Over the years, the Boker family expanded their business and moved to Solingen, the City of Blades, to begin the now-famous knife line with cutlery expert Hermann Heuser. In honor of the majestic tree from their first factory, Boker was originally known as Tree Brand, and many still refer to it by this name.
