Dale, The Knife Connections owner, had a goal to produce a heavy duty, medium-sized knife for bushcraft needs such as batoning, shelter building, small delimbing tasks etc. He also wanted this knife to be versatile enough for general field use such as large game field dressing, carcass break-down, and skinning. To that end, the blade features a long narrow point that is near the centerline of the knife. This is great for drilling tasks, and for more delicate work, but the blade also has enough belly for tasks such as slicing and skinning. The spine is square sharpened for use with a firesteel and for scraping. By having the plunge line very near the front of the handle allows you better blade control when using the rear part of the cutting edge.
One of the major design goals was to have one of the most comfortable and versatile handles on the market. We believe that we have achieved this goal. The handle design provides for a firm, comfortable grip, in a variety of hold positions.
Whether you are breaking down a moose carcass in the Northwest Territories, building a survival shelter in the Blue Ridge Mountains or cutting netting on a military mission, the dependable Forest Trail knife will get the job done quickly, comfortably and efficiently.
This heavy duty knife features a Saber ground, drop point blade. The Desert Ironwood handle scales with black liners are attached with two ton epoxy and three bolts for years of dependable service and there is a lanyard tube.
A heavy duty, pouch style, leather dangler belt sheath with firesteel loop is included. The dangler can be removed so the knife can be carried in the "high ride" position if desired.
