Announcing! The Dave Canterbury/BHK collaborative designed Pathfinder Logo Series Knife is being reintroduced! Dave Canterbury, of ThePathfinderSchoolLLC.com - the home of The Pathfinder School, has commissioned us to make this heavy duty bush knife for him and his school. This 01 Steel, Scandi ground knife is built for heavy duty bush crafting. It is 3/16" thick with a small section of thumb serrations and a squared off spine, great for use with a ferro rod or fire steel.
10" over all length
blade length is 5.5 "
blade width is 1 1/4" with a 4 1/2" handle
It rides quite comfortably on the hip when combined with the custom Kydex sheath (with a leather backing) which is included at no extra charge. The bead blasted green Micarta scales are a very sturdy choice. We chose to attach them with the big, bolt together fish eye hardware and some epoxy; they will stay put no matter what your situation. Lanyard hole is standard for that extra ounce of retention.
This knife weighs - 10 oz. Sheath- 6.5 oz.
To by an additional sheath made in leather click here.
Made in USA
Due to rise in materials costs. There was a price increase effective 9/13.

In the words of Dave, "This knife is absolutely bullet proof." It is solid, sharp, will take care of any need you may have in the woods. Well worth the money spent!

This knife is awesome... I have used it for wood processing, feather sticks, bowdrill sets, fire, shelter making, tons of bushcraft and it fits the bill of the "one tool option" this knife is a great all around tool but i do suggest of having a smaller knife with you as well like a mora, or a bushlore, or even a carbon steel folder like the opinel folder because it is great for small tasks but it is much easier with a mora! But besides that it is my FAVORITE KNIFE and i would buy it again and again. This knife is just as sharp as my mora and is just a great all around tool like i said again. You may want to look into getting a custom knife from blind horse knives as their current or at least last time i checked price was starting at $275 and goes up so you could probably get something more attuned to you. The knife i was going to get custom highly resembled this which i did not now about this knife when i was ordering it a year or two ago and they told me about this knife! I bought this around 6-8 months ago and it had NOT let me down!

I have been using my PLSK1 for more than a year now. I put it up against a much larger Recon Scout in tests of chopping, de-limbing and batoning. The PLSK1 held its own throughout. To me, this knife is an outstanding survival tool in a "beltable" package. It is not a bushcrafter. It is not a carver; nor is it a particularly good slicer.
I like smaller knives, like the BHK Brumby, for camp task and much larger knives [or axes] for fire prep. For me, the belt knife is a last chance tool should something happen to my kit. At this, the PLSK1 really comes into its own.
If you are looking for an "all-around" knife, there are better choices. If you are looking for an "all-around" "carry on your belt" survival tool, THIS IS IT.

Great product. The knife is a beast when it comes to working with wood and really tears into it. I used it to process some meat and it did great there also. The blade is a little thick for slicing but still did the job. Overall, I think it will make a great one tool option just as it was intended. I do have one complaint about the knife though as it was received from the pathfinder store. When I received the knife it wasn't very sharp and it had two small chips in the middle of the blade. I did sharpen the blade and it is shaving sharp now but it did kind of stink that it didn't come sharp out of the box plus a chipped blade was kind of a downer too.

This is one heavy duty and very versatile knife, this will be a knife I will be able to pass down to my son. The knife holds a very sharp edge, and the sheaf is very heavy duty and functional, with the locking mechanized the knife won't fall out.

I don't give 5 stars to much of anything. This knife deserves it. While I have not truly put it through its paces I have put it to test that would have been rough on another knife. The first thing I did with it was grab a piece of flint and start a fire with it. I don't really know what you could do to take this knife beyond its capabilities, maybe trying to chop your way out of a helicopter. I love the way it fits in my hand. I do not mind that I spent so much money on this knife at all.

This is my first handmade knife,and it the best knife I used.but when I got it in the mail it had a very dull blade,and on the pathfinder store site it said it came with a kydex sheath & a free leather sheath,but it had the kydex sheath,other then that,it is a very bullet poof knife

The quality from BHK is exceptional as usual. If they have this knife with him they need no other it is very stable. Make firewood goes without problems and the lighter is also equal to this. Made for heavy work in short words,i enjoy to use the knife.
Thanks to the pathfinder team for the fast delivery of overseas.
