Just because you’re a fan of traditional gentleman’s knife designs doesn’t mean you have to be stuck in the past when it comes to their features and materials. This year’s trend seems to be knife makers spicing up their gent’s knives with modern material upgrades that breathe new life into these classic knives. Take the new Boker Barlow Prime EDC pocket knife for example, a traditional design to its core that harkens back to the very origins of the folding knife but with modern blade steel and handle scales that make it a solid choice if you’re looking for a new knife today.

The classic Barlow shape with its sheepsfoot blade and slipjoint mechanism has its origins in the 17th century, but the Boker Barlow Prime EDC’s use of ice-hardened Bohler N690 stainless steel and sturdy black canvas micarta firmly place this knife in the 21st century. N690 stainless steel has superior edge retention and maximum sharpness when compared to the older steels used in traditional and vintage knives.

The canvas micarta is more stable and resistant to cracking compared to traditional wood and bone handles, and it offers far more grip when things get wet as well. But all this added performance and practicality doesn’t come at the cost of throwing away the heirloom heritage looks of the Barlow shape. The end result is a sleek and slim modern gents knife that won’t raise too many eyebrows when you’re in polite company but can cut it all like a modern everyday carry knife should.

The mix of modern and traditional inherent in the Boker Barlow Prime EDC make it a compelling choice when you’re searching for a new gent’s EDC knife. Its gorgeous look stands the test of time, and you can be proud to pass this knife on to its next owner when the time finally comes.
