Arrival

Bark River Boone:



Bark River Knives are made in the USA. This one is an old pre-WWII design. It's made of A2 steel and has a handle of desert ironwood (absolutely gorgeous wood, truly), although dozens of other handle options are available. I show this one with a pilot's survival knife for comparison; the Boone is basically a deluxe version of that nice old pattern. The Boone will actually fit in the sheath of the survival knife, if you so desire, although the sheath supplied by Bark River is actually higher quality than the government contract sheath.

Bought at Knives Ship Free.

I'd dump that POS survival knife... I broke the blade of mine right at the tang going through SERE...

@Old NFO: how did you manage that, Jim?
