Bark River Bravo-1 Knife Review

Bark River Bravo-1 Knife ReviewNow I want to point out right off the bat I have never been a fan of knives like these for me they tended to look too much like a kitchen knife so when I say I love this knife its saying a lot. the Bravo-1 from bark river is a knife that the photos don't do it justice you need to use the blade to really get a feel for how great it is.

Bark River Bravo-1 Knife ReviewThe Brovo-1 was developed from the bark river Gameskeeper when the U.S.M.C wanted a knife like the Gameskeeper but with some modifications done to it. the modifications that they made the Gameskeeper didn't take anything away from this great knife just made it better.

 

 

Bark River Bravo-1 Knife ReviewThe bravo 1 is truly a great knife in every way right down to the finest detail even the lanyard hole is a piece of steel pipe not just a drilled hole like you find on other knives like this. Now that I have had the chance to use the knife I would have to say there is only one down side that I can even find about this knife and that would be the convex edge many people my find it hard or complicated to sharpen but with a little practice you can easily learn how to sharpen it like all knives.

Now I went into the review not knowing anything about the Bravo 1all I did know was everyone had been telling me how great the knife was and I would have to agree with them 100% now that I've had a chance to give it a go myself! Some people have said to me that the knife sheath is nothing really special but from my experience with knives and there sheaths I have to say it quite good even thought the sheath is plain and strait forward and nothing fancy it does hold the knife very well even if its mounted upside-down and lets face it in a world where sheaths are a second thought these days this sheath is one of the better ones I have seen without a doubt!

Bark River Bravo-1 Knife ReviewOne of the nicest things about the bark river knives is they come in a wide range of configuration so you can get the Bravo 1 just the way you want. You can pick handles in just about every material you would ever want from this plain black Micarta to fine woods like walnut and stag horn.
