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 Senegal jungle knife is a real time-tested performer. The blade of this knife is actually modeled after the issue jungle knife of the Senegalese Colonial Army. Bark River took this very efficient blade and added a modern handle with perfect ergonomics for more comfort in use. The original was first issued in 1914 and was in continuous service with the French Colonial Army and the French Foreign Legion in North Africa through WW1 and Vietnam into the 1950s.
