The new Bark River Aurora-II is the larger version of our most popular Bushcraft knife, the original Aurora. For the last few years, we have been receiving requests for a version of the knife with a longer blade, for a wider variety of tasks. After experimenting with the concept we decided to not just make the blade longer but also wider. This new blade changes the knife into a more useful tool without compromising any of the original attributes of the standard model.
The handle is the same, no changes were necessary at all to support the larger blade. The knife is still fast in the hand and light on the belt, so it is very easy to pack or carry. Balance point is right on the first finger. We have opted to make it right from the start in CPM 3V. Most seasoned users will find the new Aurora-II to be one of the most useful medium/large knives that they can take afield.
This knife is supplied with the Fox River II sheath. However, it also fits with the Aurora sheath as well.
