The Bravo Necker I, was first introduced in 2009. We have made and sold around a thousand of them in the original 12C27 Sandvik Steel. For 2011 Derrick and Wendy from Knives Ship Free asked us to switch to the much tougher, stronger, and more abrasion resistant Crucible CPM3V Tool Steel. The knives are identical except for the switch to the CPM steel, so each is electro etched with the CPM 3V incorporated into the Bark River logo.

In addition to the design, Bark River is all about choices. We wanted the choices to be more than just the choice of handles. We came up with the electro-static powder coating as a way of adding these choices. Coatings slow down the cutting power of a blade up to 50% of its potential. The solution was to not compromise the cutting power of the Necker by grinding the blade as normal and removing the powder coating on the blade portion as we convex the blade. The new CPME3V Bravo Necker I has roughly the same specifications of the earlier 12C27 version. If you liked that one, you will love this new version.

The Bravo Necker comes with a Kydex Sheath.
