Love White River's Firecraft line but need something smaller? The FC 3.5 Pro, with its 3.5-inch blade, is a great compact blade for survivalists and other outdoor enthusiasts. White River, a family-owned knife manufacturer based in Michigan, is well-known for its high-quality offerings that incorporate durability and well-considered features for work in the field, and the new FC 3.5 Pro is no exception.
Introduced at the 2018 Shot Show as a new addition to the Firecraft line, the FC 3.5 Pro retains the all-purpose drop point of the larger Firecraft blades in a smaller package. Each blade is constructed from CPM S35VN steel with a 58-60 hardness rating and finished with an attractive stonewash. The top of each blade incorporates a sharpened notch that can be used with an included Ferro rod to get a fire started. Slight gimping along the top of the 0.130-inch-thick blade makes handling easier.
The bolt-on black G10 handle in this FC 3.5 Pro model incorporates a finger ring on the butt end for ease in removal from a sheath, even if you're wearing gloves. You won't find a bow divot as is on the larger Firecraft models, but the ring makes it handy to attach or hang the knife as needed. The blade's Kydex sheath is designed to fit snuggly against a 7-inch Firecraft survival sheath so you can easily carry it with a larger knife, should you wish to piggyback the lighter knife with a heavier-duty option. Or, it can be attached to your equipment in a variety of positions.
Each FC 3.5 Pro knife is crafted in the U.S., like all of premium maker White River's offerings, and designed to appeal to the needs of hunters and backpackers. And at 3.8 ounces, the knife doesn't add a lot of weight to a backpack or can even be worn on a lanyard around your neck.
Order your White River Knife and Tool blades from us - an authorized dealer in business for more than 20 years - for complete confidence that you'll be getting an authentic FC 3.5 Pro. You'll get your knife quickly and without hassle - ready for your next adventure!
Outstanding quality. Very well made knife and functional for small hiking trips or at work or around the house. S35VN steel holds an edge very well. I did paracord wrap the handle to make it a little larger. Actually bought two - one for my son.
Amazing knife, great quality, but it is very small. If the purpose is to solely light a fire it is perfect. I planned on keeping this knife with my day pack for hiking so it works well for my purpose. I am a average size guy with large hands and it looks like a toy in my hands, canít imagine how a large person would feel about the knife.
My knife was better than expected which is well and good but I have never been treated by a knife company or any place of business like Mr. Connelly at Knife Art. This company definitely handles the high end great quality knives and that stands for itself but Mr. Connelly treated me with respect and with swift satisfaction in a small matter concerning something that was not his fault. He went the extra mile and spoke to White River for me and then I was totally satisfied from both Knife Art and White River. The specifics are not as important to me as the service and respect that I have gotten from Knife Art and now I am a lifetime customer and am happy to tell everyone. This is a great American spirit of business and integrity that I must take time to writer and shout it from the mountaintops. I am a pistol Packin preacher that tells it like it is good and bad alike but I must say again Knife Art is the best there is in not only quality knives but the human element of respect and hands on day to day business. Way to go Knife Art and the Connelleys.

I don't know how a knife of this quality, made in America, packaged and built so nicely can cost so little. Everyone should buy this right now. I particularly like how all the edges are nicely smoothed except where the striker is meant to be used.
Unable to comment on the function of the knife in the field. Have not used it. The knife arrived within two days in perfect condition. Workmanship is excellent. Blade was extremely sharp. Handle/grip seems to be somewhat thin but since it is designed as a light EDC camp knife I have no problem with that. Very good sheath but it does not allow for an upside down vertical carry which is the only con I have at this time. Looking forward to using it at the next campout.
This knife is the perfect size for carrying, wether it be on the trails, or at home. I'm really impressed with the fit and finish, the quality and time invested in the manufacturing process is very evident. I'm normally not a fixed blade kind of person, however, this is definitely one of my favourite knife purchases to date.
