Barrel in black horn by Le Sabot

Classic farm worker knife.

Riveted black horn handle. Carbon steel bolsters on top and bottom.

XC75 carbon steel sheepsfoot blade, satin finish with slipjoint mechanism.

The blade doesn’t have a kick, the tip rests on the back spring. This allows extensive sharpening without the tip overhanging out of the handle once folded (proud tip).

Handle: 3.74in (9.5cm).

Blade: 2.95in (7.5cm).

Blade thickness at ricasso: 0.12in (3mm)

Handle thickness: 0.51in (13mm)

Weight: 2.6oz (74g)

    Five Star Function and Form

    Posted by David Mann on May 26th 2022

    These Barrel knives are extraordinary. This is my second (I also have the Olive Wood variant). Both are excellent. What impressed me so much about the Black Horn is the depth of colors: it's like looking into a clear night sky. The blade is very well ground: thinly tapered at the bevel, but a sturdy width at the spine. Strong pull and snap. Feels good in the hand. The finish was a tad more rustic than on other more expensive knives (think Queen, GEC etc), but it doesn't detract from either the function or form. It just feels handmade. Each piece a little different. I'd be proud to pull this out anywhere -it's a conversation-starter: unique and original. Rough Ryder and GEC both do a Ramsfoot/Sheepsfoot-type knife. They are imitations of this barrel knife. The Barrel knife is the original. It should be treasured and enjoyed.
