No new images Barlow Knives

Barlow knives are a type of jack knife. They have an extra long bolster on the right side, and usually none on the left side. The larger bolster adds to the strength of the knife, and the lack of a left side bolster allows for a less expensive construction. Factory patterns that are known as Barlow's include the 05, 009, and 43.

No new images Pen Knives (Misc)

The name pen is shared by many knives. As a general rule, it describes any double ended knife that measures less than 3 1/2" closed. Some pens include the senator or equal end pen, the sleeveboard pen, and the premium pen. Senator pens are those with a perfectly oval shaped handle. Sleeveboard pens have a handle that tapers to a narrower rear. Premium pen knives are generally classified as pen knives that share the pattern number with a stockman knife. This is of course subject to argument, but most collectors categorize pens in this manner.
