A classic slipjoint done right
The Wayland is The James Brand's interpretation of the Barlow, the epitome of the American folding knife. Created over three centuries ago in England and perfected in America, the Barlow quickly became Americans' preferred blade, regardless of class. The Barlow's traditional patternlong bolster, teardrop-shaped handle, and clip point blade made it the ideal EDC tool. If ever a knife belonged to the people, it was the Barlow.
This slip-joint knife features a minimal design aesthetic and premium materials - it will last the test of time and look good doing it. Designed to be carried in-pocket, The Wayland is clipless but comes lanyard-ready.
The Wayland's three-inch Sheeps Foot blade is composed of CPM-S35VN steel creating a durable slicing knife capable of avoiding accidental point piercing mishaps, making it perfect for whittling, slicing a chunk out of an apple, or assisting on a rescue mission. The classic non-locking slip joint design produces the smooth "walk and talk" one expects from a well-built tool. The quarter-stop halfway open prevents the blade from biting back.
