Coopersville, MI. -(Ammoland.com)- Earlier this year White River Knives debuted their NEW Survival Knife line releasing prototypes to actual survival experts and a very limited few to the general public for use and abuse feedback.
The five-inch-long full length slab handle is heavy canvas green Micarta with an orange liner.
The handle is contoured to make heavy cutting or chopping easy. The deep index finger choil cut allows for high pressure whittling and precision cutting.
The grooves at the top of the blade (called jimping) are course for additional thumb traction even with gloves or mittens on and also form a rasp like surface for making fine sawdust for ease of fire starting.
Just in front of the finger guard area is a cutout for efficient striking of a ferro rod fire starter rod and one is included with each knife and is part of the tough Kydex sheath.
The hand honed flat profiled stonewashed finish blade comes leather stropped razor sharp and is thick and deep for efficient cutting or chopping.
White River survival knives come in three blade lengths; the basics for all are:
- Blade: S30V steel with a stonewash finish.
- Handle: Heavy canvass green Micarta with three hollow handle pins.
$240, $280, $320 depending on model–see below please
- Sheath: Kydex with ferro fire starter rod.
