If simple but elegant is the aesthetic you're seeking in a blade, you may not need to look any further than the new Ursus 45 from White River Knives. Made completely in the U.S. from U.S.-sourced materials, the Ursus 45 debuted at the 2018 Shot Show as a workhorse of a knife that's ideal for many types of camping and outdoor tasks. From building a shelter to preparing food, the Ursus' 4.5-inch blade and comfortable ergonomic handle lets you do it all.
Ursus - the Latin word for "bear" - is a good descriptor for this tough bushcraft blade made from CPM S35VN steel with a 0.158-inch thickness and 58-60 HRC. The top of the spine is rounded at the handle, transitioning to a sharper edge perfect for striking the included Ferro rod. The overall length and weight of the knife, 9.5 inches, and 8.3 ounces, is the ideal compromise between small enough to comfortably carry and large enough to get the job done.
The Ursus 45's durable bolt-on handle feels contoured due to the care taken with the fasteners and positioning flush with the handle. Made from black Micarta, the handle is tough as well as comfortable to handle and can withstand a lot of use in the field. A loop at the butt of the handle permits attachment to a lanyard. The knife comes with a tough leather sheath and Ferro rod.
