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 was capable of a whole lot more. Today the Bravo 1 LT is beloved amongst bushcraft and hunting enthusiasts. It is solidly constructed with enough blade thickness for heavy-duty work. At the same time it is light enough for hikes. A perfect knife that can be used for many purposes.
The blade is made from Böhler Elmax steel. An incredibly stainless type of steel that retains its sharpness well. A type of ultimate combination of the wear resistance of carbon with the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. The edge has been enhanced with a convex grind which you can maintain by stropping it.
The handle is made from canvas micarta. A strong and light-weight material, made from linen and synthetic resin. Feels comfortable in hand, even in wet or cold circumstances.
The Bark River Bravo 1 LT comes with a leather belt sheath (max. belt width 8.0 cm). The sheath also has a loop for a firesteel (max. diameter ~7.0 mm).
Bark River makes all of its knives almost completely by hand. As such each knife is unique. Especially when working with natural materials a knife can differ from the photographs. The knife you receive can therefore be subtly different from the product photos. The model and type of material, however, will always be the same.
