Canada Special is a classic bushcraft knife, the grandpa of all bushcraft knives.
This is a Beaver Knife version and vision of the legendary Mors Kochansky's knife which is known as a tough and reliable bishcrafting tool for all your outdoor adventures.
Canada Special has a true 30 degree scandi grind without any "micro bevels" or "micro edges". This knife has a practical Micarta handle, with aluminum pins and comes with a beautiful Italian leather sheath. The blade is made of modern premium German PGK steel.
We offer two versions of this knife (just cosmetic preferences):
|Overall length:||9 1/4" (235 mm)|

|Blade thickness:||0.134" (3.4 mm)|
|Guard and pommel:||-|
|Weight (with sheath):||14 Oz (398g)|
|Weight (knife only):||8.2 Oz (232 g)|
Everything I wanted in a woods knife. Fast shipping as well!
I believe this knife to be what Mors Kochanski envisioned of the perfect bushcraft knife. From the continuously curving edge and reasonable blade thickness to the full sized neutral handle, this knife delivers where other similar knives do not. The fit and finish is flawless, the edge (a true scandi, no secondary bevel) is incredibly sharp out of the box, and the balance is perfect. The sheath, an area where many other knives lack, is on par with the quality of the knife.
I also have to applaud the makers choice in steel. I admit that before looking at this knife I was unfamiliar with PGK, but after a little research I see this steel is on par with cru-wear and vascowear. Very good stuff. Great edge retention and toughness, exactly what you want in a bushcraft knife.
If you want a knife that comes with Mora sharpness, Bark River fit and finish, and premium steels I highly recommend you check out Beaver knife. Kirill Bobrovsky is a talented maker whose meticulous attention to detail puts his knives up there with the best on the market.
