Bark River Woodland Special

The smaller version of the Highland special I think. I like the size/weight of this knife very much. I find it very pleasing to eat an apple with this knife! lol But Seriously, BRKT is popular for a reason. The most exciting thing about this knife tho is the convex edge. It’s amazingly easy to maintain and does seem very strong like I’ve read online. Looks like I’ll be making me some nice strops with compound on them. Oh yeah check out this link for a great tutorial on convex sharpening

  1. @DangerDad29 – hey thanks for the suggestion. I actually did this on another knife and decided to keep it unsanded on this one. It’s grown on me.

    Funny that you mention neck knives. Along with the Woodland knife I want to buy a RAT Cutlery IZULA in the new year! I gave my RC-3 to my girlfriend and have to find something to replace it!

    Bark River knives are quite difficult to get in the UK (As are RAT Cutlery) but I’ve found one shop that has the Woodland knife in stock. When I have the money it will be mine!

  7. Hey yorkshire, honestly haven’t used it very much since I got my mora 2k and Blind horse. I was recently going thru my fixed blades tho and man it still feels great! Bark River just released their bravo neck knives too. Might wanna check those out.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Are you still as positive about the knife now as you were in the past?

    Can you strike a firesteel by using the spine of the knife?

  11. Nine inches of convex ground A2 isn’t screwin’ around!

  12. I had to look the Bay de Noc up. whoah that’s a 9incher! hehe

  13. Love the patina on it! Awesome Blade! I only have 1 BRKT blade and it is a Bay de Noc. I love the knife but I want a smaller, more EDC-able knife. Woodland Special is high on my short list.

  14. where did you buy it for that money??? i wanna buy that thing!

    convexness!!!!!!!!!!! lol luv it!

  16. I have used the knife a good bit recently so I could get a feel for it and see how the convex and A2 perform. I’d use this knife for anything cept cuttin weeds out of the dirt.

    Do you use this knife for anything? Or do you just covet it? This is a serious question. … from a fellow knife lover

  19. I picked up single sheets at Ace Hardware

    Woo, BRKT! I absolutely love my Pro-Scalpel II.

    Still trying to get a good patina on mine without forcing the issue. I figure a few hundred more onions and I’ll be in business. Yours is looking quite nice, though!
