The Bark River Classic Drop Point Hunter with long bolster is Bark River Knives’ version of the world famous Drop Hunter of the late Bob Loveless. This pattern was Bob’s idea of the perfect knife for hunters to carry while pursuing all medium and large species of North American game. The long bolster version was his variation of a standard guard.
The slightly lowered point aids in not inadvertently piercing the stomach or intestines of the game while field dressing. The other subtle feature of the design is how the sharp edge drops away from the line of the hand to increase the cutting angle and make the knife cut more efficiently.
The Bark River Knives version of the Drop Point Hunter is the same size as the original Loveless. The main difference is that Bob’s were hollow ground and Bark River’s has our famous convex grind to a razor sharp edge. A “classic” design with a Bark River flair to it. This knife comes in CPM154, a powerful and tough steel that maintains a precise cutting edge. This steel is of very high quality, and we have found it to hold a very precise edge, and sharpen up quite quickly without any hassle.
This knife is supplied with the Gameskeeper sheath. However, it can also be matched with the Bush Seax Bantam sheath.
