The AKC Club Knife, a typically Aussie Barlow Bunny pocketknife and synonymous with settlement of the nation, has been hand-made by skilled English craftsmen.
This practical-collectable pocketknife with an etched blade bears the maker’s trademark stamp ‘A. Wright & Son Ltd Sheffield England’ and signifies the English-Australian cutlery link that originated upon the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney in 1788.
Flagship of A. Wright’s ‘Willing Worker’ series of English-made pocketknives marketed by AKC Mailorder, this historic Barlow Bunny commemorative has a 6.5-cm mirror-polished high carbon blade, Rosewood scales and polished nickel silver and brass furnishings. Closed, it measures 9 cm.
