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 Bark River Aurora II is the larger version of their most popular Bushcraft knife, the original Auror, with a longer blade for a wider variety of tasks. After experimenting with the concept, Bark River decided to not just make the blade longer but also wider. This blade changes the knife into a more useful tool without compromising any of the original attributes of the standard model.
The handle is the same as no changes were necessary at all to support the larger blade. The knife is still fast in the hand and light on the belt, so it is very easy to pack or carry. The balance point is right on the first finger and Bark River opted to make it right from the start in CPM-3V. CPM-3V stainless is an easily sharpened, very tough and resistant professional grade steel that is guaranteed to give you years of worry-free usage. Most seasoned users will find the Aurora II to be one of the most useful medium/large knives that they can take afield.
