The Bushcraft is the latest model from the RBB (Reality-Based Blades) line of knives from Boker and personal protection expert Jim Wagner. Mr. Wagner has a long history of martial arts training and US Government/Police Service. He has served in the US Army, as a Police officer, S.W.A.T. team member and counterterrorist to name a few. His series of Reality-Based Blades covers not only personal protection, but outdoor, every day and tactical use.
The Blade: This is a thick drop point styled blade perfect for many outdoor uses. It's razor sharp utilizing a modified Scandi grind for bushcrafting and other outdoor chores. There is a removable thumb disk opener creating ambidextrous operation. The blade is smooth opening and locks up solid with a lock back mechanism. In front of the disk, the spine's edges are left sharp enough to aid in fire starting.
The Handle: Thick, strong Zytel handle is olive green in color and has finger grooves on either side with some textured for assisting in grip. It's comfortable, well-balanced and features torx screw construction. The pivot does require a proprietary tool which Boker has provided with the knife. Stainless steel liners run down the inside of either side to reinforce the strength and durability during hard use. A deep carry tip up pocket clip is attached via a small impact element at the butt end of the handle.
The RBB Bushcraft is new and direct from Boker USA.
