Update: Fox is sharpening the Baby Barlows and they are shipping to us next week!
The anchor of the new Urban Series, the Lundquist Baby Barlow is impressively compact. Beyond that, it brings an entirely new dimension to the traditional slip joints we know and love by introducing top-notch modern materials and innovative design touches. This is a special sort of knife that is a completely new creation, yet still feels familiar and timeless.
Drawing inspiration from the #25 pattern size, the Baby Barlow is designed as a compact everyday blade that will fit into your jeans coin pocket effortlessly. It also has a slightly more defined Barlow shape handle, which adds symmetry and allows it to fill the hand better, which is especially crucial for a smaller knife.
The one-of-a-kind modern touches that deviate from the norm come in the form of a front flipper tab, the inlay designs, caged ball bearings and a full lockup via a steel inset lock bar. This combination of old and new allows for the best of both worlds and came about from Justin’s desire to improve upon the #25 pattern which he owned.
The front flipper tab allows for one-handed deployment, a feat that is impossible on a traditional Barlow which uses a nail-nick to deploy the blade. The inset lock bar prevents the blade ever closing on your fingers, no matter how arduous the task. And finally, something that a purist traditional slip joint maker will never dare attempt, the Lundquist Baby Barlow comes with a low-profile, deep-carry titanium pocket clip which opens up a world of carrying possibilities.
Crafted to the highest standards, the Baby Barlow features full titanium scales with a class-leading M390 blade and green G10 inlay. With the debut of the Urban Series Baby Barlow, there has never been a better time to treat yourself.
