This knife was designed by Doug Wilson of Yellow Hawk Custom Kydex and we’re proud to be able to bring you the incredible blade that he has conceived. Here are his own words describing the DW Backcountry Knife:
“I am an ex-special ops soldier with 40 plus years using the finest knives in just about every environment,” Doug tells us in his own words. “I have never really found one knife that would do everything I wanted a ‘one tool option’ to do. So, based on my experiences in the bush, bushcrafting, teaching wilderness living skills to both soldiers and civilians, camping, wilderness backpacking, hunting, etc., I designed a true ‘one tool’ option that can do most tasks well — including food prep and skinning, which is where most blades suffer. This blade will do the tasks that a medium sized blade, a large blade, and a skinner style blade will do, and it does it with CPM3V, one of the finest steels available for hard-use knife building. It’s tougher and more wear-resistant than any forgeable steel.”
