Description
WTWRBPDC: Backpacker Desert Camo
White River Knives
 
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. 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.

First Impression
Knifecenter service staff are an example to customer service employees and organizations everywhere. There were some issues with shipping regarding the postal codes in Dubai and they were polite, competent and helpful. Full marks. The knife came very sharp and finished exceptionally well. It is an exceptionally functional design and fits beautifully in my hand. I cut up some food with it and it takes apart tomatoes without any wrinkling or bruising. Regardless of shaving tests and paper cut tests etc this is sharp enough for me. My first S30V knife after lots of AUS-8 and 8Cr13MoV and 1095, so I expect better edge retention. Will probably have to upgrade from a lansky deluxe guided angle kit though.
