The Bark River Aurora has long been one of the ultimate choices in bushcraft and survival situations. Now built in premium CPM 3V steel it has raised the bar even further!
3V has incredible toughness (lateral strength), improved edge retention (abrasion resistance) relative to A2 and much greater corrosion resistance than A2 all while only being a little tougher to put an edge back on. Built of a full tang frame with comfortable contoured handles in the industries widest variety of materials, this Barkie has garnered a near cult following for good reason.
When extreme toughness, great edge retention and incredible geometry in a knife matter choose the Bark River Aurora 3V. Measures 9.5" overall with a 4.5" spear point, convex ground blade (.170" thick) made of premium 3V tool steel at 58-60 HRC. Includes a leather belt carry sheath with firesteel loop.
the Aurora is a terrific camping/hiking/bushcrafting knife. The 3v blade holds an edge very long. The handle comfort is second to none for me. Great DLT customer service too.

My Aurora is full-height grind, so it is most powerful wood biter like my full-height grind Liten Bror. I can make Feather Stick easily and handle is stable in the hand. My hand is small, but easy to grip. Aurora Handle is very good. Blade shape is very useful to do Bushcraft. I think Aurora 3v is most reliable knife in the field. I'm old knife user. I have used M2 high speed tool steel (Gerber A425) 20 years ago. M2 is good steel but it rusts easily and was chipped sometimes. By the way, Ideal Samurai Sword is no broken, no bend, no chipped, and hold edge long time. M2 "was" ideal to thought of Samurai Sword 20 years ago. 3V is outstanding materialã€€and almost ideal to thought of Samurai Sword. I'm grateful to Mr. Jason and DLT and BRK to respond my wish (Full height grind).

Very pleased with this bushcraft knife. I primarily bought it for wilderness use in the Eastern High Sierra where I plan to be for an extended time. Not knowing what I would encounter I needed a knife with multiple capabilities that would meet any challenge. The Aurora fits the bill.

Love the cocobolo and the mosaic pins are beautiful! Great quality and the 3V holds quite an edge with a little strop work!

Great knife, comfortable handle and razor sharp. It is light and can be carried all day with out wearing you out, the sheath is great and I recommend the Handi Scandi attachment. It batons well, makes feather sticks and carves great.

Really happy with this purchase and the DLT service, 6 days from the USA to Australia. The sheath leather treatment is well worth it.

This is really a perfect size knife for most bushcrafting tasks. The grip is comfortable. The steel is durable and takes an edge quite easily. It is one to add to your bushcraft collection for sure.

I'm a repeat customer at DLT Trading, and this transaction was as smooth and headache-free as the others. Thank you DLT for that.
The Bark River Aurora that I bought came razor sharp. Love the smooth texture of the matte G10. I think the only difference between the matte and the standard G10 or Micarta is that Bark River doesn't wax/varnish/ or polish the scales as they do with their standard handles. The handle screws (hardware) is also matte finished, too. The only gripe I have about the knife I bought is that the handle scale on one side of the knife did not sit completely flush against the blade. The area towards the choil has a gap on one side between the blade and the scale (about 1mm). That isn't DLT Trading's fault. I sent the knife back to have the scales replaced under their lifetime warranty..

Made a last minute change after ordering with Jason over the phone. He took care of my request with no problem. I received the nicest knife I own to date the Aurora 3v. Fit and finish are very good and razor sharp. After a little stropping it is the sharpest knife I have ever held in my hand. If the 3v can do half what is claimed I will be buying more knives in this steel.

바크리버 나이프는 bravo1이 가장 유명하지만 엄밀히 말하면 bravo1은 서바이벌 나이프지 부쉬크래프트 나이프는 아니다. aurora는 부쉬크래프트에 최적화된 나이프다. aurora lt보다는 약간은 그립감이 내게는 크지만 크게 문제될 정도는 아니다. 후회없을 선택!! Famous knife is bravo-1 in bark river. But bravo-1 is survival knife. Aurora is best bushcraft knife. 3V is very nice. tough..robust.. keep sharpen long times. very nice. And DLT trading service is very good. Thank you.
