The Bark River Knives Gunny has now moved into second place in overall sales of Bark River knives and it is now available in a new model. The new Gunny Hunter is the drop point version of the standard Gunny. All Gunny Hunters are rampless and are available with and without jimping on the spine. The Gunny Hunter also features a Hunter Saber Grind on the blade. The terminal geometry of the edge is a little thinner than the standard Gunny and is made more for field work and hunting purposes than the standard model. The size of the Gunny Hunter is just right for dressing medium to large-sized game animals such as elk. It is very practical for light to medium bushcraft chores as well. If you are an outdoorsman/woman, you owe it to yourself to own one of these fine knives!

About CPM 3V Steel

CPM 3V is a high toughness, wear-resistant tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process. The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high quality steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability and toughness compared to other steels produced by conventional processes. CPM 3V was designed to provide maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistance steel. This "super steel" offers impact resistance greater than A2, D2, Cru-Wear, or CPM M4, approaching the levels provided by S7 and other shock resistant grades. CPM 3V is intended to be used at 58/60 HRC in applications where chronic breakage and chipping are encountered in other tool steels, but where the wear properties of a high alloy steel are required. The wear and toughness properties of CPM 3V make it an excellent alternative to shock-resistant steels such as S7 or A9, where they typically wear out too quickly, but where grades such as A2, CruWear, or CPM M4 tend to fail by breaking or chipping. CPM 3V offers the highest impact toughness of any tool steel with this range of wear resistance.

While not considered a true stainless steel, CPM3V is considered by some to be a "semi" stainless steel and does exhibit some stainless steel qualities while costing less than a true high-grade stainless steel. One of our customers gave us a great testimony about the stainless qualities of CPM 3V steel. He wanted to put a patina on the blade so he tried vinegar with no effect, then mustard with no effect and finally lemon juice which had no effect!

Nominal Composition:
Carbon - 0.80 %
Chromium - 7.50 %
Vanadium - 2.75%
Molybdenum - 1.30%

This chart will give you an idea of how CPM 3V steel compares to A2 steel & some other steels.
