We have teamed up with Justin Hamm of Black Raven Arms Knives from Utah, USA and jointly, we have designed and tested thoroughly this 4" drop point hunter knife. This has been a project well over 18 months in the making.
We personally have a number of Justins knives - two kitchen knives and 2 hunting knives - and we can attest to the precision, the attention to detail and the thorough professionalism of Justin's work. As per the normal with what you could expect from the Pathfinder brand... quality...
We have put the test knives through their paces here in Aussie with some of the most demanding conditions, on the toughest of game (our very own Water Buffalo) and in the hands of Australian hunters who actually know what they are talking about when it comes to knives.
Here are the specs:
- CPM Magnacut stainless steel.
- 62-62.5 RC hardness.
- Ultrex "suretouch" scales in either Grey/red, Tan/red, Green/red or Orange.
- Stainless front mosaic pins with stainless steel lanyard pin.
- Micarta & G10 liners.
- Kydex sheath.
- Edge sharpened to 16 degrees per side (DPS).
Please note: We are planning on doing a limited run of these knives so we do not overload Justin. We do have some in stock here in Australia, and it'll be a case of first in wins. That said, once the current Australian stock is out, make contact with us and we can send you an invoice, once your payment is made your custom order will be placed with Black Raven Arms Knives.
US and Canadian customers please get in contact with us upon placing your order as your knife will be sent to you from Black Raven Arms Knives in the US to avoid it coming from here in Australia.
This is the first initial run of the Kestrels and if successful we will look to do a second run later on in the year, all factoring on both Justins workload and material availability.
