BAR07010NMBC: Gunny Vortex Jimped, Black Canvas Micarta
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 Gunny Vortex is an excellent addition to the Gunny family of knives. It is longer and sleeker than the standard Gunny and the blade is more pointed and is taller for more cutting power. It is very well suited for general purpose use for both civilian and paramilitary tasks. The handle slabs in the Vortex have a unique thumb index detent for use while holding the knife in a side grip and for indexing in the hand without having to look at the knife. The Vortex is available in both ramped and non-ramped versions and each has jimping for a secure grip.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
