BAR023WB: Ultra-Lite Bushcrafter, Bocote Wood
Bark River Knives
Bark River specializes in cutting tools for outdoorsmen and others who need real performance in the field. They use a blend of traditional/contemporary designs and styles to get a product that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also ultra-functional.
The Ultra-Lite Bushcrafter is a very welcome addition to the Bushcraft Series of knives. If there was ever a knife that delivered pounds of performance for every ounce this one not only qualifies, it nails it right on the head. The knife is styled just like its big brother, the full-sized Bushcrafter, but is smaller, thinner, and much lighter. At 2.7 ounces it is very easy on the belt or in your kit. It is a perfect back up to your Regular Bushcraft knife and perfect by itself for day hikes or short trips.
It feels like a feather in your hand but it is all business when it comes to using. The Crucible CPM-3V blade steel is tough enough to handle larger tasks and will hold an edge extremely well. The thin blade slices easily and will carve wood for Bushcraft Camp projects with little effort. You will find this knife very comfortable and secure in your hand with its ergonomic shaped handle slabs. The Ultra-Lite Bushcrafter accomplishes all of Bark River's design criteria and they are confident it will meet yours.
