First of its Kind
The anchor of the new Urban Series, the Baby Barlow Prototype is an impressively compact EDC blade that seamlessly merges form, finesse and functionality.
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 Prototype is designed as a compact everyday blade that will fit into your jeans coin pocket effortlessly. The updated Barlow handle shape also adds symmetry and allows it to fill the hand better, which is especially crucial for a smaller knife.
Other modern touches that deviate from the norm include 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 the coup de grâce, brace yourselves, the Baby Barlow Prototype has a feature purist traditional slip joint makers will never dare attempt – a low-profile, deep-carry titanium pocket clip which opens up a world of carrying possibilities (finally!).
Thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted to the highest standards, the Baby Barlow Prototype features full titanium scales with a class-leading M390 blade. With the debut of the Urban Series Baby Barlow, there has never been a better time to treat yourself.
Note: The Carbon Fiber Model 1 has slight scratches on the clip, which is visible on the photos.
