    A trip back to boyhood "first knives" for many .... found at Thrift store for $5. A BARLOW pocket 2 blade folding knife. "Imperial" , Providence, R.I. , USA circa sometime between late 50's and mid-70's before the move to "Ireland". Apparently, 1065 carbon steel. Classic tear drop shaped handle with large bolster. (Very) Entry level but good working knives that won't break your your heart (if lost) or, your bank account. This one was an advertising piece with (faint) Sperry - New Holland (heavy equipment) imprint on the handle (so, after 47').. I recall in the 60's you could get these (mail order) on the back of my comics. This one still "snaps" open .

    I'm a sucker for the nostalgia....but, you can buy new for around $10.
    (if you get a chance, read the history (see below).... great name dropping).

    I love my IMPERIAL made Barlow, and yes this is the 56-88 tang stamp ( they were owned by scgrade and production of Imperial moved to Ireland in or just after 1988 )

    I wish case would make a Barlow again, and do it with CV blades.

    I have one. While they lack that special something, they blades are ground thin and are true pocket scalpels. When viewed only as a tool they are great.

    Yep, imperial slipjoints are super thin and slicy.
    They're not built like tanks, but you don't need a tank to to slice things.

    It looks like a Littlestown exactly. I'd guess rebranded.

    I'll guess Miller Falls just because they sold so many of these. Looks to be in very good condition.

    12 new heads.[​IMG] The green double bit says Olympia china so i don't feel bad about abusing it, steel seems decent though. Top left just says 3 1/2lb Taiwan. Most are unmarked besides the firestone deluxe top right. Vaughan value brand top middle. And the ludell paper label. Bottom right is unsalvageable the eye is too distorted and has a crack, it had a rough life. The bottom double bit has a faint marking i cant make out.
    [​IMG] And a 4-3[​IMG]
    [​IMG] these three all have eye ridges. The top has 4 and weighs nothing the eye is tiny. The other 2 have 6 ridges. Any ideas?
    [​IMG] this one intrigues me. High centerline, wide bit, Good steel, seems really good.
