Most who know Mike Stewart, know that this is his favorite belt knife of this size. The Canadian Special has been one of the backbone knives of the Bark River Knives line up since it was first introduced into our Canadian Series. The Canadian Series has its roots in the back bow designs that are commonly called Canadian Skinners. The Canadian Special is the belt knife size that has become the standard size that Hunters and Outdoorsmen feel most comfortable using. You will find this a serious working belt knife that will easily handle most field and hunting chores. Large enough to handle field tasks, the Bark River Canadian Special feels like an extension of your hand. Smooth finger grooves and a design which elevates your hand from the cutting surface results in a sure, positive grip in a comfortable, ergonomic fashion.
This knife is available in both A2 and CPM3V. A2 is a hearty, resilient, and very durable tool steel, that is sure to last you a lifetime, and CPM3V is an easily sharpened, very tough, and resistant professional grade steel that is guaranteed to give you years of worry-free usage.
This model comes in an LT version as well, which is made from thinner stock. If you are looking to slim down or lighten your load, an LT edition can make a big difference. CPM3V is our number one pick for LT versions, as it has the toughness to support the thinner blade and body.
The Canadian Special is supplied with our Fox River Sheath.
It can also be matched with the Bush Seax Bantam, Bushcraft A, American Small, Bushcraft D, and the Aurora sheaths.
