The Bark River Knives Donnybrook is a light-weight fixed knife, designed for EDC purposes. Because of its weight and slim profile you hardly notice that you carry it with you. And yet you still keep an almost 10 cm long blade close. The large ring at the end of the handle ensures that you always have different grip options. You can put your little finger through the hole, but in a reverse grip you can also use it for your index finger.
The blade is made from CPM 154. A premium type of stainless steel that retains its sharpness well. As you might expect from Bark River the knife is razor-sharp. 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 Donnybrook comes with a nice leather sheath. It is nice and slim, just like the knife, and has enough room for belts up to 5 cm wide.
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.
