The M1 Backpacker fixed blade that offers maximal blade length to handle. The full tang blade utilizes a high-quality stainless CPM S35VN blade has a traditional drop point shape with jimping on the thumb rest of the blade spine for a secure grip. A full black Ionbond coating provides extra protection from the elements and a matt black anti-reflective finish for the American-made steel. The CPM S35VN steel is known for its high edge retention, rust-resistant, and toughness. The blade design has a notch for the index finger to rest and control the knife.
The handle is wrapped in a durable black paracord- which can be removed for survival purposes. The full tang construction gives this knife a solid build and excellent balance.
Custom molded black Kydex sheath holds the backpacker knife securely in place until you need it. The Kydex sheath can be assembled in multiple configurations for right or left-hand carry. Vertical or horizontal carry. The profile of the sheath also makes this a great neck knife. Remove the belt loop from the sheath and it lays flat against your chest for excellent concealed carry.
Each White River Knife and Tool Backpacker comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Looking for a light knife that can take months on the trail? It was this knife or the Izula S35VN. It is nearly a tie. Both feel good in the hand. Both take an astounding edge. The Izula is a bit thicker, but has a shorter handle. The White River sheath is perfect; the Izula sheath sucks and needs to be replaced.
Based on look and feel, I am going with the Backpacker.
It is one hell of a knife.
