The Highland Special has been a conerstone of the Bark River Knives line since 2002. The New 2012 Version of the knife has been updated in a couple of ways. We have added the lanyard loop of the Fox River to the rear of the Tang. The Steel has been upgraded from our standard A-2 to the new Crucible Steel CPM D-2. This new powder metal technology steel has a much finer grain structure than standard D-2 and has the toughness of the A-2, but with enhanced edge holding properties. The CPM D-2 is easy to re-sharpen and will take a razor edge. The CPM D-2 is also more stain resistant than the Standard A-2 because of its added amount of chromium. The handles are now attached with corby bolts instead of pins to insure that there will be no handle scale separation. You will find this enhanced version to be a joy to use.

The Highland Special is supplied with a Bushcraft C
