The Bow River is one of the most budget-friendly fixed knives in Spyderco’s range. As we have grown accustomed to from Spyderco the price-quality ratio is sublime.
Phil Wilson mainly designed the Bow River for various tasks in nature. The thin and razor-sharp blade is perfect for hunters of fishermen who gut game or fillet a piece of fish. Even while camping the Bow River will excel. Preparing a meal or sandwich is a piece of cake with this knife. This, however, doesn’t mean that you cannot use the Bow River for EDC purposes. Because of its compact size, weight and the slim black leather sheath you can also easily use this knife around the house.
The first thing you notice about the Bow River is the handle which is comprised of different layers of G10. Stunning and definitely unique in this price range. The handle feels comfortable in hand and is enhanced with a lanyard hole to make sure you can attach a piece of paracord. The blade is made from 8Cr13MoV steel. A decent type of steel that is easy to sharpen if need be. Another part that is unique within this price range, the cherry on top, is the black leather sheath. It is made from thick top-quality leather. With it you can proudly carry the Bow River on your belt.
