The Bark River Elmax Gunny is BRKT's inaugural model with Uddeholm Steel's highly-touted ELMAX super stainless steel. This steel has rocked in the folder market and is sure to be a must have if you're looking for a fixed blade knife that holds an edge amazingly well yet balances out toughness and ability to re-sharpen. Some folder enthusiasts feel it is the best steel on the market when weighing all three of these factors.
A lot of comparisons have been made to and will be made with Crucible Steel's S35VN steel. How do they compare on carbon content and Chromium? Elmax has an amazing 1.7% carbon (S35VN 1.4%) along with 18% chromium (S35VN 14%) for excellent corrosion resistance. As a third generation powder steel Elmax has an extremely uniform, fine-grain structure resulting in a very uniform composition. The result: excellent edge retention with no trace of brittleness.

These knives are well built and have superior fit in the hand. I haven't used the knives yet since deer season hasn't arrived yet but I'm expecting them to be a super performer under any field dressing conditions

Very nice knife. Comfortable handle, came fairly sharp out of the box, stropping made it a razor. Used it to skin out a deer the day after i got it, made very short work of the job. Excellent shipping and customer service from DLT.very happy with the order.
