White River Knives

We have carried White River Knives at the Knifecenter since 2012 and have been impressed with their products from the start. This company has access to very advanced machinery and experience in manufacturing precision tools that few companies, even large knife manufacturers, can match. They have come up with products that are really second to none we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. White River Knives has models that seem faintly similar to other knives from around the world because they take the best qualities of modern tactical knives, Finnish Puuko knives, various Fillet knives and put their own unique stamp of American design on it. Then they produce them out of the most modern and top quality materials. These are not bargain basement items, but quality items rarely are and White River Knives are all a good value. If you own a White River product, you have one of the finest knives produced anywhere and you should be able to own it, use it and pass it on to future generations just as you would other great knives of the world.
 
The BackPacker is an extremely versatile, tough (S30V) and light weight knife. A 'cross over' knife, it is well suited for hiking, hunting, tactical and more. The handle is wrapped in paracord for lightweight comfort and grip. Popularized by U.S. troops, paracord is strong, durable and mildew resistant which makes it an excellent choice for a knife handle. Comes standard with black paracord handle but several colors are available at no extra charge. Comes with a custom molded Kydex sheath for up, down or sideways carry. 

Kydex is an extremely durable material that stands up to the toughest use without gouging or scratching. It's easy to clean up without damaging the surface or compromising the sheath. The Backpacker sheath design allows you to wear it on a belt in two ways, with the knife handle pointed up or parallel to your belt. It can be fixed for both a right and left hand grab. You can also string cord through the sheath and hang the knife from your neck without worrying the knife will slip out.

S30V alternative to izula
The S30V allows this knife to be pretty thin, but still retain a very hard and "stiff" blade. Most knives of this thickness but made of other steels, can be "flexed" or "bent" by hand. You're going to have a really difficult time trying to do the same with this knife. It retains an edge like a knife possessing a much thicker edge. The kydex sheath is mated perfectly to this knife. Although it doesn't fit the standard blade-tech type belt locks that just about all kydex sheaths do, it does have an adjustable kydex belt "clip". the total profile of the knife and sheath is ultra sleek and thin. I think the standard belt locks would have made the profile too bulky. I'm ranting... overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ! Great almost custom type design and top tier steel for very cheap price.
