Very nice steve, is that top knife an Arthur wright? How do you find them?
I spoke to an online retailer this morning about when they would next be getting any stock of their knives.
They said they have an order in but waiting for them to be manufactured.
My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

It is an A Wright. I got that knife here on the forum. I would think it would be easier for you guys to get them over there. There is a shop on the AAPK forum that sells them here in the states. I've purchased a few from them.


 
I've ordered from here as well     https://www.moonrakerknives.co.uk/folding-knives?mfp=manufacturers[155]

I am waiting on a two blade barlow from https://heinnie.com/search.php?search_query=arthur%20wright&productListPgNoCustom=1&section=content

But waiting on stock,
There are other suppliers here with stock but their prices are over 50% more.

They look like good no fuss tools.

From what I can tell most retailers struggle to keep them on the shelves for long.  Oddly Amazon UK have a modest selection but not a two blade Barlow sadly.  Sportingcutlery and Moonraker will have some patterns in stock as well. 

I've managed to amass a few over the years and I'd best describe them as "solid".  Springs as strong as you could ever wish for and perhaps a little more.  Fit is good but finish can be a bit lacking.  Flashing on the liners needing cleaned up, that kind of thing.  Edge geometry I think is their biggest issue.  Quite hit and miss in my experience.  Not a big problem if you don't mind a sharpening.  Heat treat is very good though.  You're getting a very hand built knife, made quickly but well. 
Be excellent to each other and always know where your towel is.

Thank you for that It’s much appreciated. I have requested to be emailed when they are next in stock, so hopefully I can grab one before they sell out.👍

Not carried this RR Barlow in a while.  Still not a fan of the Big R bolster and I had to drop the kick on the pen blade in order to access the nick on the clip blade, but other than that it's a good knife.  :D
