The Forest knife is a vision of the perfect belt knife described by Mors Kochanski in his comprehensive and definitive book " Bushcraft".
The knife has all the features he described with bullet-proof construction. The blade is A-2 tool steel triple tempered with the tang drawn softer for extra toughness. It has hand blended Corby Bolts on the handle scales and the stainless steel pommel. The hand ground convex Scandi style grind gives maximum edge holding and makes working wood an easy task.
The sheath is a quality piece of work. It is ambidextrous, set up for multi-directional belt carry and hollow rivets allow you to lash it to your gear. It also has an integral fire steel loop and incorporates two rare earth magnets to retain the knife securely in the sheath. No matter how rough the terrain the sheath will retain the knife.
The permanently recessed magnets can be used to create a make shift compass or used to recover small metal items outside your reach.
The new American Knife Company "Forest" will quickly become your favorite bushcraft and outdoor knife.

    Outstanding

    Posted by Bill G on 25th Dec 2019

    I've had this knife a few months now and having put it through every conceivable task I feel it's time for a review. The short version-buy it. The long version, well this for me is the perfect knife in its size class. It takes a razor edge with the worksharp tool and feels beautiful in the hand and the balance is exceptional. The fit and finish is superb, better than many of those knives sold by high end custom makers and as a useable tool its second to none. I pair this knife with a Bark River Bravo 2 and they are, to me, the ultimate woods companions. Just get it, I promise you, you'll be glad you did for years to come.

    A superb knife!

    This knife is ' loosely " based on mors kochanski's description of a perfect bushknife. It is very solidly made.the scandi-vex grind is a joy to sharpen and to use.as with most knives vigilant maintenance is required and if adhered to the knife is fantastic.you would be amazed the size of saplings that can be cut down with the knife.it is comfortable both with gloves and bare hands. All in all this for me is a version of the holy grail.A superb quality knife.
