Bark River Large Knives
Made in Escanaba, Michigan

In 2007 the Golok was the only big knife in the Bark River line. Now you have three big blades to choose from. Please let me know if there is a particular handle material/color that you would like. My distributors have many in stock and I would be glad to order a knife for you.

The Bark River Knives is a family-owned business locate in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Their goal is to produce the finest semi-production cutting tools available on the market. Bark River Knives are aimed for use by those who need real performance in the field. They use a blend of traditional and contemporary designs and styles. Manufacturing methods are also a blend of modern and traditional to gain needed tolerances while maintaining the subtle features that have produced exemplary cutting implements for centuries.

Bark River uses A-2 Tool steel in many if its knives. A-2 differs from other high carbon steels because of the addition of significant amounts of chromium and molybdenum. A-2 has a favorable reputation among woodworkers for its superior edge holding properties. Owner, Mike Stewart, has found over his many years making knives that this steel offers the best in edge-holding and ease of sharpening qualities using their proprietary heat treatment, and convex blade grinds. The heat treat applied to a Bark River knife is complex and time-consuming, involving two different metallurgical companies.

Your Bark River knife is guaranteed against manufacturing defects for life. If you have any problem with it, just return it to Bark River Knives and they will repair or replace it.

Bark River knives come in many handle colors and made from Micarta, G-10, Sambar Stag, and variety of woods.

Bark River Bravo-1

The Bark River Bravo-1 knife was developed with the assistance of the U.S. Marine Corp Force Recon Training Unit. These folks bought a large number of knives on the commercial market and tested them without saying anything to any of the makers.

The Bark River Gameskeeper came out on top. It fit their requirements of a "Real Time General Purpose Survival/Bushcraft Knife". Bark River was contacted by them and asked to make a knife based on the Gameskeeper with a few changes. The Bravo-1 is the result of their input.

All Bravo-1’s come with a Leather Sheath with Firesteel loop.
