The White River Knives FC3.5 is a cool survival knife, optimized to build fires in the wilderness. The use of material, the different finishes and the effective forms: everything serves a purpose. It is what White River Knives excels at.
The White River FC3.5 Pro has a blade made from CPM S35VN steel. A stainless type of powder-coated steel that retains its sharpness well, can handle its own and is also reasonably easy to sharpen. Because of the high sabre grind there is blade thickness left on the spine of the blade. As such the blade is nice and solid and has a little more weight for chopping tasks.
To protect your fingers and to make sure the knife won't fly from your hands White River enhanced the FC3.5 with massive finger grooves. As such you 'lock' the handle in hand and never have to worry about knives flying around.
The handle on the White River FC3.5 is made from paracord. As such you will always have a piece of rope close.
The spine of the blade is relatively sharp to make sure you can scrape tinder or fatwood. Also practical when removing tree bark when building shelter. Just before the jimping you will find a small cut-out on the spine that is also very sharp at the edges. As such it is even easier to create massive sparks with a firesteel. This knife comes with a firesteel that is attached to the sheath in a loop.
The White River Knives FC3.5 comes with a solid kydex sheath. It is enhanced with a kydex belt loop which you can hang from your belt horizontally. Because of the different mounting holes you are flexible when it comes to choosing a carrying method that suits you best. This knife comes in a luxurious wooden gift box.
