White River Knives
 
On the hunt or as an everyday carry, the Backpacker Pro is just the right size for the job. White River's most popular and versatile survival knife is now available in the Pro model with pre-fastened textured G10 handle scales secured by stainless steel bolts that can be removed. The textured G10 material provides a rugged grip, and the knife comes "hair shaving" sharp out of the box. The Kydex sheath can be configured in many options so you can wear this knife on your neck, boot, or belt. 

Kydex is an extremely durable material that stands up to the toughest use without gouging or scratching. It's easy to clean up without damaging the surface or compromising the sheath. The Backpacker sheath design allows you to wear it on a belt in two ways, with the knife handle pointed up or parallel to your belt. It can be fixed for both a right and left-hand grab. You can also string paracord through the sheath and hang the knife from your neck without worrying the knife will slip out.

Well made - long wait
Regarding shape and size, it compares well to my ESSE Izula with its aftermarket G10 grip-extenders and exceeds it slightly in comfort. What I spent on the Izula & it’s grips is almost the same as the Backpacker Pro and it has S35VN steel vs 1095. The kydex sheath is better too in my opinion. I also like the textured faces on the G10 which provides incredible retention.The factory edge was adequate and I did very little cutting with it before putting a nice edge on it with a KME. That went well & behaved like well heat-treated S35VN. A bit tough to sharpen but the geometry was excellent and the edge came out nice. This is a gift for my sister to take along a stretch of the Appalachian Trail this summer so I’ve not used it much but I think it will serve her well. The only ‘bad’ about it was an eleven week wait from the time I placed the order until it’s arrival. The website here had stated 2-3 weeks when I placed the order. I actually got shipping notification the same day I planned to cancel the order & look elsewhere. Now that it’s in stock & having had a few days with the knife, I just placed an order for one for myself if that provides an indication of my feelings about the knife. Hope this has been helpful.
