For a sharp-looking and top performing bushcraft knife, look no further than the new Ursus 45 from Michigan-based White River Knives. From its name - shared with the Latin word for "bear" -to its simple but elegant design, the Ursus 45 with an attractive natural burlap Micarta handle is ideally suited to a number of tough outdoor tasks.
Users of the Ursus 45 will find its 4.5-inch blade and 8.3 ounces make it the perfect length and weight for camping, backpacking and hunting work, including preparing food, processing firewood, and building shelter. Constructed from CPM S35VN steel, the stone-washed blade with a hardness rating of 58-60 and a blade thickness of 0.158-inch will hold up under hard use. Its overall length of 9.5 inches makes the Ursus 45 with Natural Burlap Micarta handle the perfect size for taking into the wilderness. This drop point blade and the stout build makes this knife perfect for batoning when you need to leverage your knife with larger branches during shelter building.
The top line of the Ursus 45 is rounded at the handle before making the transition to a sharper edge; you can use the included Ferro rod to easily get a fire started. The bolt-on handle is made of Micarta to be both comfortable to grip and long-lasting. Its black burlap - is subtle for those who prefer a more natural color. Either wet or dry this handle provides excellent traction in your hand. At the end of the handle, a small loop lets you attach the knife to a lanyard if desired.
Each Ursus 45 knife is made completely in the U.S. and comes with a high-quality brown leather sheath and a Ferro rod that is attached with a small stretch cord so it won't get lost.
