The New Featherweight Hunter is a very compact version of the Classic Drop Point Hunter that has been a staple in our Deluxe Game Series for years. This extremely popular style was originally designed by the late Bob Loveless. This became the standard by which all drop point knives have been judged, since the early 1980s.
Our new Featherweight is the perfect reduction in size to make it the most easy to pack and carry version of the Loveless design. The Featherweight is the perfect name for this model. It truly is like a feather in the hand. The combination of it's thin blade and the Elmax Super Steel makes it cut like a razor, while being large enough to get a good secure grip. Which is great for field dressing small and medium game, and will handily accomplish most light camp chores and food prep in the field. The Featherweight Hunter will make short work of hair, hide, gristle, and should field dress a deer sized animal like a scalpel.
Great well balanced and good looking knife with a fine feel in hand. Unfortunately there has been a continual seeping of what I can only assume is resin that never met hardener coming from the handle. I wipe it off and a few days later it is there again. !st production run I guess.

The Classic Design and in hand feel of this model make it one of my favorites. The white C-tek handle is better in person and as with all Bark River Knives if needed I can send it in and have it refurbished like new.

Great thin blade for skinning or slicing. I really like this knife. Elmax performs well on this thin convex. Always buy from DLT when I can.

As the name implies, this knife is extremely light. The leather sheath it comes with is heavier than the knife. May consider getting a kydex sheath if you are concerned about weight. Because if the thin geometry it makes a great slicer. Wouldn't want to baton with it though. Great hiking knife.

It is really light weight. Very comfortable handle, just right size utility knife, very sharp, perfect balance. Really nice work with pinecone pattern. Well built!

Two deer and one elk later, the blade is still extremely sharp, knife feels great and handles well, sheep horn handle looks beautiful. First BRK knI've I've owned, but not the last!
