DescriptionWTWRBPBLCBI: Backpacker Black, Black ionbond White River Knives
We have carried White River Knives at the Knifecenter since 2012 and have been impressed with their products from the start. This company has access to very advanced machinery and experience in manufacturing precision tools that few companies, even large knife manufacturers, can match. They have come up with products that are really second to none we have seen in terms of quality of fit, finish, and materials. White River Knives has models that seem faintly similar to other knives from around the world because they take the best qualities of modern tactical knives, Finnish Puuko knives, various Fillet knives and put their own unique stamp of American design on it. Then they produce them out of the most modern and top quality materials. These are not bargain basement items, but quality items rarely are and White River Knives are all a good value. If you own a White River product, you have one of the finest knives produced anywhere and you should be able to own it, use it and pass it on to future generations just as you would other great knives of the world.
KnifeCenter started with this company very early in their existence. We recently increased our offering to include all of their models. These are great knives, made in Michigan to exacting standards by great folks that we are honored to work with.
The BackPacker is an extremely versatile, tough (S30V) and light weight knife. A 'cross over' knife, it is well suited for hiking, hunting, tactical and more. Now available with an awesome tactical black ionbond coating, in addition to the stonewashed model, for a truly tactical looking knife. The handle is wrapped in paracord for lightweight comfort and grip. Popularized by U.S. troops, paracord is strong, durable and mildew resistant which makes it an excellent choice for a knife handle. Comes standard with black paracord handle but several colors are available at no extra charge. Comes with a custom molded Kydex sheath for up, down or sideways carry.
Kydex is an extremely durable material that stands up to the toughest use without gouging or scratching. It's easy to clean up without damaging the surface or compromising the sheath. The Backpacker sheath design allows you to wear it on a belt in two ways, with the knife handle pointed up or parallel to your belt. It can be fixed for both a right and left hand grab. You can also string cord through the sheath and hang the knife from your neck without worrying the knife will slip out.
