This is a Barlow Knife.
I've had this since the 60's!
Barlow is not a brand, it's a style of knife.
It can either be one bladed or two bladed.
Each side of the rounded handle is flattened a bit.
George Washington was known to have owned a Barlow.
Tom Sawyer was given a Barlow in 1876.
Obadiah Barlow first manufactured the knife in Sheffield England around 1670.
That has nothing to do with this...I just love the name Obadiah!
This particular knife was made by the Imperial Knife Co.
I have many pocket knives, I recycle them as I lose them then find them in the couch!
Thanks for stopping by, I've been quite busy at work lately so forgive my commenting absences. Your reading loyalty is very much appreciated.
