Böker Arbolito Bushcraft Micarta 02BA331 bushcraft knife
The Böker Arbolito Bushcraft Micarta is a cool bushcraft knife, made by Böker Arbolito in Argentina. This South American branch of the Böker family makes amazing knives, for amazing prices.
This Böker Arbolito Bushcraft knife has a blade made from N690 steel. An incredibly stainless type of steel that can easily be sharpened. In terms of shape and grind a pointed blade with scandi-grind was chosen. It is not completely a zero-scandi, there is, after all, still a subtle micro bevel present. This makes quickly trimming the blade a little more pleasant. If required you can of course sharpen the scandi-grind yourself on whetstones to end up with a zero-scandi grind. In terms of finish a fine stonewash was chosen. This masks traces of use.
The scandi-grind is perfect for woodwork. With a thickness of 4 mm this blade is also used for heavier chopping work. The front part of the spine has a flat grind. As such, using a fire steel is child’s play.
The handle is made from micarta. This is a fine material that is comprised of linen and synthetic resin. Great in hand, even in wet circumstances.
You carry the Böker Arbolito Bushcraft Micarta with you in the robust leather sheath. A loop has been attached to the leather sheath to which you can attach a firesteel (ca. 8 mm wide).
