Officers were called by the London Sambulance Service (LAS) at 11.05pm on Saturday to reports of a stabbing on Debden Close.
They found a 22-year-old man suffering from stab injuries on Martlesham Walk but despite the best efforts of the emergency services, he died at the scene shortly afterwards.
No arrests have been made.
Chief Superintendent Roy Smith, from the North West BCU which covers Barnet, said: “This is another tragic and needless loss of a young life on the streets of London and my thoughts are with the victim’s family and friends.
“My officers responded immediately and did their very best to save this young man’s life – administering CPR and first aid at the scene.
“We will continue to use every tactic and every opportunity to bear down on violence and this will include the use of stop and search which, in the last few days alone, has removed deadly weapons from the streets of north west London.
“I would ask communities to support our officers as they do everything they can to stop another family suffering the pain of losing a loved one.
“Local safer neighbourhood officers will be out on patrol over the coming days, please do take a moment to talk to them if you have any information or concerns.”
