Help ID Barlow

Postby former173rd » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:14 pm

Would appreciate information on this A.G. Russell Barlow.
Main blade has A.G. Russell on tang (front) and Solingen over Germany on other side.
Wood handles of some type and brass liners. Appears newer knife.
Thanks in advance!

Boker made a lot of SFOs for AGRussell.
That jigging pattern looks a lot like what Boker called "washboard bone" in the early 2000s.
The pin spacing appears to be the same also.

Thanks!....Looking in the "crystal ball"...is this a EDC or a potential collectable? I know the owner is going to ask that. He picked up several dozen folders recently and this one was one of them.
Very hazy question, I know..

I'd call it an EDC - but then again to me almost everything is an EDC. :)
Now if he wants to put it in a time capsule for about 100 years...

Got it, and I appreciate the input. I sorta suspected as much, but wanted to give him a second opinion. Thanks again!

Great looking Barlow.
I have one that is similar.
