The White River Firecraft 5" Knife is from our exclusive Foundry Gear Line-up collection. This outstanding American-made knife is designed with the highest quality stainless S35VN steel for real-life survival situations.
The White River Firecraft knife is built to last and hold a razor-sharp edge in tough survival situations. This high-quality survival knife is made in the USA with the finest workmanship from a small family company of master craftsmen.
The blade has a hollow grind and is finished with a fine stonewashed finish, perfect for hiding the inevitable scratches that come with use. Another feature of the steel is the fact that is produced using particle metallurgy process, the CPM stands for Crucible Particle Metallurgy, that yields an extremely even distribution of the carbides in the steel. CPM steel is cleaner and stronger and cuts more evenly than steel made with the cheaper standard process. The S35VN steel is heat treated to a hardness rating of 59 HRC.
On top of the blade is a notch to use for striking a Ferro rod, aka fire stick, which is included with each knife and attaches to the sheath. The handle is 6" long making the full length of the White River Firecraft knife 10". Each handle has a deep finger choil design which protects fingers when pressure is applied if using the knife for cutting. This knife will hold up to heavy batoning if you need to leverage it against larger tasks.
Every handle is designed with a polished stainless steel divot for use with a fire bow. The handle material on this knife is secured with stainless steel pins and is extremely comfortable in hand for heavy use. The canvas micarta was selected on this knife for its durability, traction and impact resistance, you just can't go wrong with canvas micarta in almost any environment.
The sheath on this knife meets the quality of the knife, something to look for when selecting a fixed blade knife. It is custom molded Kydex, with a leather swivel mount and a steel ring so that you can move comfortably when this is attached to your belt or rig. The Ferro stick is mounted on the top of the sheath, making this a complete survival package.
The Firecraft 5" S35VN knife is exclusively handcrafted in Michigan by White River Knives where custom quality matters. Each knife is hand-finished precision grind and leather hone razor-sharp with a lifetime guarantee. If you have any problems with this knife for life, you can return it for repair or replacement, free of charge, no questions asked.
Overall, this knife is an excellent hardcore survival tactical tool that will withstand the wear and tear of the field.
So I ordered my knife after buying a few other backpacking products several days before and it has a bit of a wait time listed on the knife but came within d a day or two beating most of my backpacking gear. Also didn't receive a recent so I emailed the company and they had it to me within minutes.
First thing unless you do not use a knife to cut wth is the steel. S35VN is a very good product and will serve you well.
