White River NEW Survival Knife Line for 2017

White River Knife & Tool–www.whiteriverknives.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. Their recommendations are the basis of this new knife line and its final design. Designed for heavy-duty use in real survival situations these also make excellent camp, hunting, backpacking or utility knives. Every part is 100 percent U.S. made.

The five-inch-long full length slab handle is heavy canvass 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.

Handle slabs are adhered with a super epoxy and three brass lined hollow handle pins. The three brass lined hollow handle pins make possible the lasing to a stick to turn this knife into a spear if necessary. The most rearward lanyard hole is larger for heavier mountain gear rope if desired.

The hand honed flat profiled stonewashed finish blade comes leather stropped razor sharp and is thick and deep for efficient cutting or chopping. One side of the knife handle features a polished stainless steel metal dish like cutout (divot) for use with a fire bow.

This is a well-designed great looking and robust knife intended for serious work.
