The Elk River Hunter is right for packing every time you wander. It has plenty of power and is well suited for use when field dressing.

  • This model is approximately 9 inches overall, with a blade length of about 4 1/2 inches.
  • Blade is made by Lucas out of 1/8-inch, O-1 high carbon tool steel and comes standard with a satin finish. This satin finish can be maintained by polishing, or can be allowed to mellow with use.
  • The standard hardware is a set of two brass bolts, but can be upgraded to deluxe 3/16″ mosaic pins.
  • You choose the handle material! The knife shown above has a desert ironwood handle. ERH’s handle has shaping that allows for a great grip!
  • Each custom knife comes with its own handmade leather sheath, made here! Also, the Elk River Hunter can be further customized by pairing it with the Trekker sheath! Please be sure to check out all Trekker’s amazing details (complete with lots of pictures!) over here!
