The Lon Humphrey Rustic Bravo knife was produced at The Knife Connection's request (Dale Stoops) and is a collaboration effort between Lon Humphrey Custom Knives and Bark River Knives. The Bark River Knives Bravo 1 is a very refined knife with design features that have made it a "Best Seller" for several years. I thought, why not take the design features of the best selling Bravo 1 and have Lon Humphrey do a hand forged custom "Rustic Bravo". The result of this mix is a great outdoor knife that not only looks unique but has the features to make it a great performer in the field.
The Rustic Bravo is a great knife for bushcraft, survival and any other type of field work that requires a heavy duty, medium-sized knife. It is very comfortable in the hand and is easy to maneuver providing excellent control. The forged 1095 steel will hold up to anything you will want to throw at it and still provide a lifetime of service. With a blade length of 4.25", the Rustic Bravo hits the "sweet spot" for a "general purpose" outdoor knife. It's big enough to do some serious batoning yet small enough to make fuzz sticks very well. It also works very nicely for field dressing and processing large-game.

The blade is deferentially heat treated for strength and edge retention. The blade features hammer marks and some forge scale giving the knife a unique appearance.

Please be aware that due to the way this knife is made and the rustic nature of the knife, size and weight may vary slightly, the grinds may not exactly match and there could be some cosmetic differences. This does not effect the performance of the knife and adds to it's hand made uniqueness.
