The Bark River Bravo 1 LT is a lighter version of the Bravo 1. Originally this knife was designed for (para)military use, specifically for the U.S. Marine Corps. Soon, however, it became evident that this knife can be used for so much more purposes. Throughout the years the Bravo 1 LT even became a popular knife amongst bushcrafters and hunters. It has a solid construction and a thick enough blade for heavy-duty tasks. At the same time it is light enough for hikes. An ideal knife you can use for many things.
The blade is made from Böhler Elmax steel. An extremely stainless type of steel which retains its sharpness well. It is the ultimate combination of the abrasion-resistance of carbon steel with the corrosion resistant aspect of a stainless type of steel. The edge has a convex grind which you can keep in great shape by deze stropping it.
The handle is made from canvas micarta. A strong and light-weight type of material, made from linen and synthetic resin. Feels great in hand, even in cold or wet circumstances. Red liners have been added in between the handles and the tang. A beautiful contrasting detail.
The Bark River Bravo 1 LT comes with a leather belt sheath (max. belt width 8.0 cm). The sheath also has a small loop with room for a firesteel (max. diameter ~7.0 mm).
Bark River makes most of its knives by hand. As a result each knife is unique. Especially when you use natural materials the knife can sometimes look different than it does on the photograph. Something to keep in mind when you receive your knife! The model and type of material will, however, always be the same.
