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 V-44 Bowie design, created for use in the Pacific Theater during WWII, is exactly what comes to mind when people think of Bowie Knives. It features a big, wide clip point blade that tapers down toward the handle, a traditional butt end piece and a double finger guard for safe handling. This design excels at all types of cutting tasks and practical applications including survival, outdoor, camping, hunting, and even tactical—if pressed into service. The Bowie was the original survival knife for American frontiersmen and women, who moved everything they owned across the country without any promises on the backend. Bark River's V-44 Bowie features a thicker, more capable blade stock than the original from 1944 but the heart and soul remain intact to give you a brutish knife with museum-quality looks that can handle a true beating.
