The Bark River Mini Bushcrafter is the lightest in the Bushcraft series of knives from BRKT. This knife is so lightweight that if you’re not careful it will float right out of your hand (Ok that’s an exaggeration but it is really lightweight and super easy to carry!) Being a rock solid built fixed blade of razor sharp convex goodness from Bark River you know this knife will do the work of a larger knife with ease and grace. This little guy packs a punch! With a weight under 2 ounces this knife is as easy to carry as a lot of folders. For the ultimate in versatility buy one of DLT’s proprietary kydex sheaths which allows for super comfortable neck carry or when you add a Mini-Tek-loc you can attach it to your belt or any Molle modular attachment. With both sheaths you have an extremely versatile, handy knife. Whether you carry the Bark River Mini Bushcrafter by itself or piggybacked with a larger knife you will find this knife an excellent choice for daily tasks as well as field chores such as dressing game. The thin, razor sharp convex edge cuts like a laser on this knife and has adequate lateral stability due to CPM 3V’s incredible lateral strength. Measures 6” overall with a 2.75” blade (.085” thick) and a weight of 1.65 ounces. Includes an ambidextrous leather sheath. (Kydex sheath optional).
About six months ago I purchased a full-size BRKT Bushcrafter from DLT. It has fast become one of my favorite knives. I am retired and spend a lot of time camping and hunting, so the knife sees plenty of action, especially prepping wood for fires. It excels at fuzz sticks and batoning, but will perform almost any camp chore asked of it. When I saw the Mini Bushcrafter with the same handle configuration as my trusty friend, I bought it immediately. It’s primary duty will be as a camping EDC. I can put it in my pocket, or on my belt, when carrying a larger knife might be impractical. It’s a scaled down Bushcrafter in every sense of the word. The fit and finish are on a par with the other five Bark Rivers I own, and by that; I mean superb. It is small, the handle is only large enough for a three-finger grip. The knife will make small feather sticks, as well as making fine cuts when carving wood, food prep, and performing 90% of the other tasks I ask of my knife in camp. Because of it’s size, I don’t even realize I have it on me, until it’s needed.
Finally, thank you Jason and crew for your speedy shipping and fine service. As always, it’s been a pleasure doing business with you! Tom K

Very light compact fix blade. The handle was beautiful and very classy to be carried in places that might look down on the tactical look. Fits on the belt or in pocket. Fit and finish is top notch and well worth the price.
