The Bark River Gameskeeper came out on top.
Bark River Knives was contacted by the Force Recon team and asked to make a knife based on the Gameskeeper with just a few changes.

The balance of the knife had to be on the first finger.
The handle slabs had to be epoxied and bolted to and through the blade.
