When it comes to an ultra dependable knife for all things backcountry, look no further than the aptly named Behring Made Alaskan. Hand forged from 3/16" thick high carbon 01 tool steel, the blade measures 4 1/2" from tip to guard with a razor sharp hollow grind and a hammermark finish with a deep finger choil for close up technical work. Hunting, skinning, fishing, camp cookin', bushcrafting, or just plain old woods walking- every outdoorsman should have this knife. The copper guard is soldered in place above black fiber, green micarta and copper spacers which is a beautiful compliment to the premium sambar stag handle that's pinned through the tang with copper. The overall length measures 9" and it comes in a pouch sheath from Warlander Leather.
