The James Brand | The Wayland

Originating in Sheffield, Yorkshire and perfected in the United States, the Barlow is among the most traditional and best-loved styles of pocket-knives. Characterised by long bolsters and a rounded handle, it’s been around in one form or another since at least the 1600s. The James Brand’s take on this iconic and perennially popular design is the Wayland, a classic slipjoint folding knife with an appropriately vintage look. However, the brand has abandoned the standard clip-point in favour of a more unusual Wharncliffe blade – often known as a lambsfoot or sheepsfoot. This gives you a long cutting edge that is great for slicing and whittling, with minimal risk of piercing anything with the tip. It’s a supremely elegant and deceptively simple pocket companion that is ideal for every day carry
