In this week's visit to Bark River Knives, production honcho Jim Stewart focuses on one particular knife -- the Essential. This run is being done in CPM 20CV, one of Jim's favorite steels.
We get some tantalizing looks at the soon-to-be-delivered Essentials, both with bolsters and -- here's a new word for you -- bolsterless. Some of the handle materials (including a few new combinations) are truly spectacular, and Bark River's new carbon fiber is stunning.
Stay tuned to KnivesShipFree's "Knife Knowledge" blog for another episode next week!
