Bobby House Barlow, Fossilized Scales, Slip-Joint Folding Knife
Bobby House is a relatively new, part-time slip-joint knifemaker from Pleasanton, TX. If the city in Texas doesn't ring a bell, it is where the master, Bill Ruple also lives. Bobby is a student of Bill's, or as I like to refer to the many who Bill has mentored, a "Ruple Pupil". Bobby is a member of the South Texas Slip-Joint Cartel. He has learned well, and is definitely "one to watch". His attention to detail and his fit-and-finish is that of a much more seasoned maker. This knife is Brand New and direct from Bobby's table at the 2021 Blade Show.
This slip-joint Barlow folding knife features a hand-rubbed CPM-154 stainless steel blade, 416 stainless steel oversized bolster and pins, and 410 stainless steel liners that have been jeweled and relieved. The scales are two pieces of creamy ancient fossilized material, with a great pattern and contrast. The blade features a half-stop, locks up tight with no blade play, and the blade seating is perfectly centered. Nice long nail pull, that is both firm and smooth. An awesome piece of work from the student of the master! Comes in a "B. House Customs" padded, zippered case.
