The Kershaw Barstow is a compact pocket knife with a tough look. It almost looks like a foldable dagger, but it is an ordinary pocket knife. Although, ordinary?
You open the Kershaw Barstow with the flipper. Thanks to the very strong SpeedSafe assisted opening the blade shoots from the handle. When opened a solid liner lock keeps the blade in place.
The blade is a real eye catcher. It looks like a dagger, but has one cutting edge. Legal in the UK. The finger guards on top and at the base of the dagger make sure you don't slip and end up on the blade. The blue details give the black knife a unique look and feel. You also see this in the standoffs (the pillars between the scales). The handle itself is made from glass-reinforced nylon with steel liners. The deep-carry pocket clip ensures that the knife will never fall out of your pocket.
