Overview

The handy Boker Barlow is a lightweight slip-joint pocket knife that can handle almost all everyday cutting jobs effortlessly. In this version, it is equipped with contoured handle scales made of olive green Canvas Micarta, while the bolsters and liners are made of matt blasted brass. The resulting color contrast is reminiscent of the privation-laden expeditions of discovery in times long past. The satin-finished blade is made of ice-hardened 440C with 60 HRC and is opened by nail nick. The operating safety of the knife is increased by a 90° stop when opening and closing the blade. The characteristic teardrop shape of the Barlow can be traced back to the English pocket knives of the 17th century, making it certainly one of the oldest models ever. Handmade in the Boker knife manufactory Solingen.

Slipjoint

The slipjoint is a mechanism for folding knives. Slipjoint knives do not possess a mechanical locking mechanism. Instead, the open blade is locked only by means of a spring attached to the end of the spine. Slipjoints are one of the most common locking mechanisms for folding knives.

A slipjoint has a small spring at the back end of the spine that keeps the open blade in place. The knife is closed by putting pressure on the spine of the blade to overcome the resistance of the spring holding the blade in place. Once the spring no longer holds the blade, it can be closed very easily. Unlike other locking mechanisms, a slipjoint is not actually locking the blade, which means there is a heightened risk that the blade might close as it comes in contact with a hard object. For knives with this locking mechanism it is of vital importance that all parts are firmly and securely fitted together.

The slipjoint is regarded as the classic locking mechanism for folding knives. Before the other locking mechanisms were invented, e.g. the lockback or the linerlock, just about all folding knives were equipped with a slipjoint. This is the main reason why slipjoint knives remind many knife collectors of "grandpa's pocket knife". A pocket knife carried by people of our grandfathers' generation would have had a simple slipjoint mechanism.
