The Mountaineer is one of our versatile general-use bushcraft knives. The blade is long enough for batonning through wood logs and slicing meat/food, but is also short enough for controlled woodworking. The nearly spear-pointed blade paired with the ergonomic coke bottle contoured handle make this knife excellent for use in the wilderness.
This specific knife: The blade is the thinner 3/32" steel, the thinner option, making it a great whittler and food slicer (yet still plenty strong enough for light batonning). The handle is 5,460 year old bog oak, at about a 3.5 (out of 5) handle thickness, slightly slimmer than our usual 4. Between the thin steel, the lightweight handle material and slimmer contour, this is a feather of a bushcraft knife, very light in the hand. After making this I decided I'm going to make myself a Mountaineer with matching specifications.
Note: there are two of these available; one has the more typical black colored bog oak, and the other is the one photographed with lighter colored bog oak. If you have a preference just note at checkout. These were two matching orders for a customer, which I messed up by using brass instead of stainless hardware.
