The White River Firecraft 7" Knife is a personal favorite of KnifeArt.com's Rodney Connelley - it has everything you need in a bushcraft or survival knife. It has the larger 7" blade size to chop, do camp chores, start fires, and as a basic building tool. The FC 7 is an American-made knife is designed with the highest quality 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. The CPM 35VN is specially designed for incredible toughness and durability that you would want for survival, outdoors, and hard-use tasks. Another feature of the steel is the fact that is produced using the particle metallurgy process, the CPM stands for Crucible Particle Metallurgy, which yields an extremely even distribution of the carbides in the steel providing the user a cleaner and stronger steel. The S35VN steel is heat-treated to a hardness rating of 58 to 60 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 5" long making the full length of the White River Firecraft knife 12". 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 tanned leather, with a comfortable swivel leather belt loop. The Ferro stick is mounted on the side of the sheath, making this a complete survival package.
The Firecraft 7" is exclusively handcrafted in Michigan by White River Knife and Tool where custom quality matters. Each knife is hand-finished, precision ground, and leather honed razor-sharp with a lifetime guarantee.
Overall, this knife is an excellent hardcore survival tactical tool that will withstand the wear and tear of the field.
Made in the USA!! White River S35VN Firecraft series I own the FC5 w/kydex and now the FC7 w/leather sheath. I like the leather sheath better, a little walnut oil on it really does the trick. Top quality knives that I can pass on to my grandkids.
