The Bark River Classic Drop Point Hunter is the Bark River interpretation of the famous Drop Point knives made by Bob Loveless. According to many a perfect hunting knife. The size is the same, only the grind drastically changed. It namely has a convex grind as befits Bark River. The result is a stronger and razor-sharp edge. The messing finger guard (crop) makes sure your finger doesn't slip and end up on the edge. The handle is ergonomically shaped. Curves wherever necessary and flat parts your fingers can comfortably rest on in different positions.
The blade is made from Böhler Elmax steel. An incredibly stainless type of steel that retains its sharpness well. The 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 Classic Drop Point Hunter comes with a leather belt sheath. It can be worn both straight (max. belt width 5.5 cm) and diagonally (max. belt width 6.0 cm).
Bark River makes all of its knives almost completely by hand. As such each knife is unique. Especially when you are 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.
