Rosewood Barlow Knife

A true American family owned company established in 1991 in Jacksonville Alabama, Bear & Son Cutlery handcrafts their knives entirely in their own workshop.  They pride themselves on a multigenerational tradition of knife passion and craft as well as their innovation, commitment to excellence, and heirloom quality.  

A knife for the outdoorsman, a Barlow knife is characterized by its teardrop bolster handle.  First crafted in the 17th century in Sheffield, England, the Barlow quickly became an iconically American tool with rugged roots that it developed during the American Revolution.  Author Mark Twain In the Adventures of Tom Sawyer immortalized the knife when he wrote about Tom receiving a Barlow knife, saying, "Mary gave him a brand new "Barlow" knife worth twelve and a half cents; and the convulsion of delight that swept his system shook him to his foundations".  It was not long before the Barlow knife was in the pockets of many young rugged outdoorsmen as a bold symbol of the frontier spirit.  Rosewood Barlow, two blades of high carbon polished stainless steel, nickel silver bolster.

For an extra special touch, add our cigar box gift wrap.  We will select a contemporary cigar box (sans cigars) that fits your item and snugly gift wrap your knife inside the cigar box and finish it with a ribbon.  Pictured is a stack of some of the boxes in our collection but it could be any box here or otherwise that is chosen, some are wooden, some are wooden wrapped in paper and some have latches while some slide closed.  Take our pick, you will be glad you did!
