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 Aurora has been designed as an Ideal Bushcraft Knife. Bark River took over two years to develop and test the knife by making a number of prototypes and putting the prototypes in the hands of experienced bushcrafters and outdoorsman in the North America, Europe, and the U.K. They took that input and further refined the design to its final form. The handle is 100% ergonomic for use in the hand in any common grip while using the knife as a working tool. The point is in line for drilling and the overall balance of the knife is neutral so it does not favor the handle or the blade in use. You will find it to be one of the most useful tools made today for serious outdoor use in wilderness living and wilderness survival.
