The Bark River Featherweight Fox River Knife is perfectly sized for a myriad of uses. BRKT built this knife at 7.25” overall with a 3.125” blade made of premium Bohler Uddeholm Elmax stainless steel (.093” thick) to cut like a laser through warm butter. This knife is destined to be one of the “sliciest” knives in your collection. With an ample handle measuring approximately 4”, the Featherweight Fox River allows the user to maintain excellent control with a full, comfortable grip. Further enhancing comfort and ergonomics are a fully contoured handle with an index finger indent.
Whether you need a razor sharp hunting knife for your next trek into the outdoors or a great, lightweight camping/backpacking knife then look no further than the Bark River Featherweight Fox River. Proudly built in the USA. Includes a leather belt carry sheath.
I've been using this knife for edc and plan on using it as a back-up hunter this fall. The handle fits all four fingers (my palm measures 3 1/2" wide) and is very comfortable. This sheath sits high and is easily concealed under a t shirt. Blade geometry is nice and thin and Elmax seems to hold an edge very well. I've butchered many boxes with no chipping and no need to stop

For all your medium to small game needs, this knife can get the job done. Don't let the size fool you it can handle bigger cutting and skinning chores as well. The size and cutting ability will make this your new go to knife. It piggybacks nicely with my Bravo 1.5. This knife should come with a warning...Do not let your wife use this product in the kitchen...You might not get it back if you do.
I purchased two of these for a recent elk hunt in Montana, one for my cousin and one for myself. They arrived very sharp and I touched them up on a strop with the white polishing compound and it made a noticeable difference in the sharpness. My Cousin uses the interchangeable blade hunting knives and he commented that the featherweight fox river is the sharpest knife he has ever owned. The knife is very comfortable in the hand and so light that I often had to feel for it to make sure I still had it on. It is an absolute pleasure to carry and the most user friendly knife that I have ever dressed game with. We dressed and processed (butchered, cut and packaged) two bulls with these knives. The knives handled everything but cutting bone. The needle sharp point penetrated the hide and opened the animal up like a zipper, the short blade made cutting the diaphragm and removing the vicera easy without puncturing nasty things. Even bloody, the handle was still easy to grip. The angle and thinness of the blade worked especially well when following the curve of the bone to remove meat (like a backstrap) Many times the knife blade was plunged into the dirt underneath the animal while splitting and quartering. The knife retained it's edge for the entire dressing and quartering process. The only drawback: both of us broke the tips on these knives while removing the ivories. These are thin bladed knives designed for cutting and slicing and they do that better than any other hunting knife I've ever owned. But, leave the heavy chores like splitting sternum, pelvis and ivory removal to a heavier tool. Combine this knife with a small hatchet and a bone saw and you can dress any game animal in North America. Overall, I think it's damn near a perfect knife for what it was designed to do. I love the weight, shape, handling characteristics, blade angle and edge retention on this little gem. I, for one, will never go hunting without it from here on out. But, I will carry a small game axe or hatchet and a bone saw with me.
