Mk. 1 Swing Lock Folder

Overview

This Barry Wood Design swing lock folder features a satin finish blade and satin finish stainless steel frame with laminated wood scales with brass pins.

This is a very unique scissor opening folder, which when the blade is fully open and locked in place is almost a fixed blade knife. The handle is nicely contoured for a comfortable grip.

Opening is accomplished by lighting pressing down and outward at the rear indentation on the spine, which releases the locking pin and allows one side of the handle and the blade to rotate down then forward until the blade locks in the forward position. The one side of the handle continues to rotate back until it locks in place. Closing requires the same slight thumb pressure at the indentation to release the locking pin, then the one side of the handle is rotated back and around, catching the blade and aligning both with the other side of the handle in a locked closed position.

Has some light scratches on blade and handle. Good condition.

About the Maker

Wood, Barry

Barry Wood's interest in knives came about because of his love of the sea and sailing. Barry wanted to make a knife that was strong and could be opened with one hand. He was an engineer and his engineering experience contributed to both his pattern designs and the designs and refinements of the interesting opening/closing mechanism that contributed to his notoriety and popularity. Because of his unique opening/closing mechanism, Barry's knives have been referred to by various names, such as "swinglock", "swivel knife", "rotating folder", "wood lock" and others. Barry began making knives in his garage/workshop in Venice, CA, and he began selling knives in 1967. Barry's interesting folding knives attracted the attention of Colt Firearms, who commissioned him to produce the Colt Tuckaway Folder. Patterned after Barry's Mk.1, the "Tuckaway" remains the most unusual of Colt's knives. The "Tuckaway" was introduced in 1969 and production continued through 1978. Barry passed away in 2014.
