White River Knife & Tool, Coopersville, MI, March 2019 – Firecraft 3.5 small survival utility knives have proven a remarkable success for hunters too.
The Firecraft 3.5 is intended as a compact ultra-lite tough survival knife especially suited for day hikers as well as a tough backup for longer trips that require either a backup or less weight. Recent feedback from hunters says it has found popularity as an efficient big game dressing/skinning knife
A large pommel loop makes it easy to remove the knife from its sheath with one finger even if gloved. And of course a retention cord can be easily put through the loop. A generous finger forward cutout makes for a secure grip for hard cutting chores and it has a cutout for more efficient use of the included ferro rod.
The CPM S35VN all steel construction makes for an incredibly sharp leather stropped blade with great edge retention under hard use.
Two models are available: One with black or orange with a super tough G-10 handle–MSRP $145 and one with a paracord-wrapped handle MSRP $120.
White River’s 3.5 series knives come with a unique Kydex® sheath with ferro rod allowing the user to mount the knife in several carry configurations on Mollie gear, backpacks, belt or even worn with a included neck lanyard sheath.
