Discover the Wayland: TJB’s Contemporary Take on the Timeless Barlow Pattern

Unveiling the Wayland, TJB’s homage to the iconic Barlow design – a classic folding knife pattern reimagined for the modern era. Rooted in a history dating back over three centuries to its origins in England, the Barlow pattern swiftly captured the hearts of Americans from all walks of life. Defined by its distinctive long bolsters, teardrop-shaped handle, and versatile sheep foot blade, the Barlow emerged as the quintessential everyday carry (EDC) tool.

Presidents Washington and Lincoln cherished their Barlow knives as indispensable companions and even Mark Twain immortalized this timeless blade in two of his literary masterpieces. The Barlow’s legacy as a knife for the people endures, and now, TJB proudly presents the Wayland as our contemporary interpretation, seamlessly blending tradition with innovation. Elevate your EDC experience with the Wayland – a knife inspired by history, designed for today.

This knife would make an excellent unique and stylish gift.
