The Bark River Drop Point Hunter 3V takes a classic, timeless design by Bob Loveless and implements arguably one of the best steels on the market to create what could be the perfect hunting knife for deer sized game. Classic lines and impeccable design, tells you it is a Loveless knife. Rock solid construction, a full-tang and a razor sharp convex grind tells you that Bark River Knife made this All-American classic. Now made in CPM 3V super steel this knife now has very good corrosion resistance (compared to other carbon steels), great edge retention and incredible lateral strength/toughness. This knife break down game, skin/process deer and work incredibly well around the camp/home.
Sized perfectly for hunting, the Drop Point Hunter works very well for other field chores or for heavy duty tasks around the home. Try the BRKT DPH in CPM 3V super steel and you will agree that it might just be the best balanced, most ergonomically designed hunting knife ever made. Add in a robust leather sheath also made right here in the USA and you have a package that not only looks great but is built to last for years. Measures 8.45” overall with a 3.775” drop point blade that Rockwells at 59-60 with a .156” thick blade. Approximate weight is 4.875 ounces.
Elegant knife and comfortable in hand. Lighter than the fox river and cuts just as well. 3V holds an edge 2-3 times longer than A2. It also more corrosion resistant. Highly recommended.

About 40 years ago, I held my very first custom knife, a drop-point hunter with white micarta scales. I thought it was the most beautiful knife I'd ever seen. That one was sold, so I begged the maker to make me another one just like it. The maker passed away before he could make mine, but I never forgot that knife. When the Westinghouse Micarta went away, it seemed like there weren't any true white knife handles anymore. The memories of that knife were put into the same place as those of my grandmother's blackberry dumplings - something I missed, but would never experience again. Fast forward to this year, when Mike Stewart posted pictures of a new run of Bark River Knives. Among them was one with white micarta scales. I messaged him to ask if it was truly available, and if so I wanted a Drop Point Hunter in it. He told me that it was available, and that a new run of the Drop Point Hunters was coming soon - and advised me to order one asap. Five minutes later, it was ordered. There was an issue with being able to polish the white to shiny without marring it with the buffing wheels, but I was perfectly fine with a satin finish. The guys from DLT (especially Paul Edgette) went out of their way to keep me informed on what was going on, and were very concerned that I was COMPLETELY happy with it. And I AM completely happy with it. Buying a Bark River Knife, with their amazing fit, finish and warranty through DLT with their amazing customer service is as close to a perfect, no-worries buying experience as you can get. I really appreciate everybody who was involved in the process at every step of the way in getting me the knife of my dreams after all these years. Actually, since this knife is made of 3V and has that amazing Bark River Convex, I'm sure that it is in every way superior to the one I fell in love with all those years ago. A five star experience in every way.
