Highland Special (D2 Steel)
The Bark River Knives’ Highland Special has been top seller and solid performer since 2002. It is now available with Crucible Steel’s CPM D-2 steel.
Regular D-2 steel has been around for a while and it’s a great steel in its own right, but CPM D-2 is a leap forward. Because of Crucible Particle Metallurgy (CPM), this “Super Steel” has a finer and more uniform grain structure than D-2. The result is a blade with the toughness of A-2 steel, enhanced edge holding and less edge chipping. And there’s another big plus… it’s easy to sharpen. Because of its higher chromium content, CPM D-2 is more stain resistant than carbon steels like A-2.
Some other changes for the new Highland Special include a lanyard loop on the rear of the tang and the handles are now attached with Corby bolts instead of pins.
The Highland Special CPM D-2 knife offers sturdy construction for years of dependable use and design features that produce top performance in the field.
