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 nutural 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 American-made 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 Black and OD Green Micarta handle the perfect size for taking into the wilderness. This drop point blade and the stout build make this knife perfect for batoning when you need to leverage your knife with larger branches during shelter building.
The American-made 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 brown natural micarta is suitable for those who prefer a more natural, organic handle 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.
The high-quality kydex sheath rig provides a secure carry system for outdoor activities. The sheath is custom molded and has multiple mounting locations. The sheath has a Ferro rod fire starting stick for striking a life-saving fire. The sheath has a leather swivel belt loop that allows for comfortable carry while standing or seated.
