Scandinavian knives are usually simple knives with a simple pouch style belt sheath. They have many different variations, depending on the country and the culture from which they come but they all share the same "Scandi Grind" on the blade. A true Scandinavian knife is beautiful in both form and function and Bark River Knives has really brought out these two characteristics in a big way with this Scandi knife.

The design and manufacturing of this beautiful knife has obviously taken great time and careful effort but the wait has been certainly worth it!

This fine knife features a true, traditional style Scandinavian pattern with segmented handle spacers of Micarta and stainless steel and a Micarta pommel. It is constructed the same way the original Scandinavian knives were made with a full length tapered tang and attached with a stainless steel custom bolt to the tang that is fully recessed into the pommel. This design allows for a very beautiful handle and a very durable one as well. The cutting edge could be considered somewhat of a hybrid since it is a combination of convex and Scandi edges. The convex cutting edge combined with the thickness of the Scandi grind and CPM 3V steel provides for excellent edge retention and a knife that will keep on cutting. The Bark River Knives Scandi knife is very comfortable in the hand and will prove itself as a tireless worker weather you are making fuzz sticks, a dead-fall trap or field dressing a deer.

The Scandi measures 8.25� overall with a 3.775� blade made of .145� thick CPM 3V tool steel and a Rockwell hardness of 60. It weighs 5.8 ounces and a nicely crafted leather carry sheath is included.

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!
