The Bark River Gunny Hunter is a compacter version of the Bravo 1. Originally this knife was designed for (para)military use, specifically for the U.S. Marine Corps. Soon, however, it became evident that this knife can be used for so much more purposes. Throughout the years the Bravo 1 LT even became a popular knife amongst bushcrafters and hunters. It has a solid construction and a thick enough blade for heavy-duty tasks. At the same time it is light enough for hikes. An ideal knife you can use for many things. This special Hunter edition of the Gunny has been enhanced with a Saber Grind. This means that the grind is slightly different from the grind on the regular Gunny. The Hunter is slightly thinner behind the edge making it the perfect knife for camping tasks and hunting purposes. In addition, the Gunny Hunter does not have a jimping or a thumb ramp.
The blade is made from Böhler Elmax steel. An extremely stainless type of steel which retains its sharpness well. It is the ultimate combination of the abrasion-resistance of carbon steel with the corrosion resistant aspect of a stainless type of steel. The edge has a convex grind which you can keep in great shape by stropping it.
The handle is made from Desert Ironwood. A type of hardwood often found in the United States and Mexico. Characterizing is the lovely colour with the rich patterns. This attractive type of wood makes the knife look extra luxurious.
The Bark River Gunny Hunter comes with a leather belt sheath (max. belt width 5.0 cm).
Bark River makes most of its knives by hand. As a result each knife is unique. Especially when you use natural materials the knife can sometimes look different than it does on the photograph. Something to keep in mind when you receive your knife! The model and type of material will, however, always be the same.
