Bark River Knives has developed a tremendous reputation in the knife community as well as with bushcrafters and survivalists the world over. The reason is simple: They produce high-quality knives and stand behind them 100 percent. Mike Stewart, the owner of Bark River Knives, has been deeply entrenched in this industry for decades. He and his team of about 50 employees churn out, on average, 200 knives a day. While they are production knives, each is hand-finished, with extensive quality control oversight at every step of the process.

I recently picked up a couple of new knives from Bark River and here’s what I found.


The EXT-1 is a conglomeration of a couple of longtime bestselling Bark River models. DLT Trading is one of the largest distributors of Bark River blades. Jason Thoune, the owner of DLT, pays close attention to the feedback he receives from his customers. Many of them commented that they loved the Fox River blade design and profile but they weren’t as keen on the handle. Jason mulled this over for a bit and came up with the idea of marrying the Fox River design to the handle for the Bark River Gunny.

It was a hit from the word go. Users could not say enough good things about it, so I was excited to get my hands on one.

Sisal rope posed absolutely no trouble at all for Bark River’s Fox River EXT_1.
