I like CPM3V, but don't have a Bark River in that Steel. Have a couple Survive Knives in CPM3V - GSO 7-7 and a GSO-10.
Thanks Brad T.,
A few years ago I picked up a set of Bark Rivers for hunting = Bravo 1 with a little finger groove caper. Sanded off the finish of the Bravo 1 as it was way too shiny (Canvas or Linen Micarta, forget which).
Howard- The knife I will be getting today is of CPM3V. Bark River has a large selection of styles and most are available in A2, Elmax, CPM3V & S35VN. The Little caper would handle your skinning requirements.
I want a CPM3V Canadian Special and a Pro Scalpel ll
Well it sure is a nice looking knife. A-2 steel - would prefer a range of choices of steel, and for me, it's a little too pointy for skinning, a desired task. But hey, if you were throwing knives in a pack for bugging out, just make room for this one.
I want the Seax or the Seax Bantam next time.
Next try a white river or a battle horse
In the meantime, enjoy this one and let us know how you feel about it! Barkies are great
Shlomo ben Maved- My friend ordered a Bravo 1.25 CPM3V last night. It is gorgeous. Should have this time next week.
Terry- I have looked at a lot of different knives and I was drawn to this maker because of the materials used and some reviews I've read.
The biggest reason is because it will cost me nothing out of pocket to try out this manufacturer's product. I wasn't a big fan of Spyderco until I started getting them as gifts from this same friend/salesman. I've been carrying my PM2 or Southard ever since. That is saying a lot, since I was a diehard Benchmade fan, but that changed. Now I think BM is overpriced for the products they offer.
My opinion on the lack of a Finger guard is, a matter of preference. I will approach using this tool the same way I do any hand tool, distraction free and not to use beyond it's intended purpose. Most accidents involving sharp tools involve 1 of those 2. As a manager of a machine shop, I approach every tool knowing it's purpose and capabilities.
Other Bark River Dealers
and the largest dealer by far
