Vintage Russell Barlow


New Member
Hey guys, I have had this Russell Barlow in a drawer for 20 years. I have decided to pull it out and learn something about it. I am not a knife guy, but reading some history on this style of knife has been head spinning. So many brands and variations! I am thinking it is pre 1900, but I cant be for sure. Any help from collectors would be helpful.

From what I have found, if true, is the straight block stamp was pre 1900. It has excellent action for its "possible" age. Just wish I knew more. Most of the ones I see don't have the clip point main blade.
