The Bark River JX6 Companion is a multi-functional outdoor knife that was designed by Chris Tanner. The edge of the Bark River JX6 is round towards the tip and the spine is slightly hollow to have enough room for your thumb. As such it is perfect for gutting game. The JX6 is also a great cutting tool for, for instance, red peppers, sausage and for many other small cutting tasks. In short: the JX6 is a real all-rounder and indispensable when camping, hunting or backpacking.
The blade is made from A2 tool steel. A strong type of steel that would rather bend than break. You do, however, need to be careful with moisture and acids: A2 is not completely stainless. So clean it after use and occasionally add a drop of oil to keep this knife in great shape.
The handle is made from canvas micarta. A strong and light-weight material, made from linen and synthetic resin. Feels comfortable in hand, even in wet or cold circumstances.
The Bark River JX6 Companion comes with a leather belt sheath (max. belt width 5.0 cm). The sheath contains a small magnet that keeps the knife in place.
