The Backpacker Pro model has a G-10 handle (vs a wrap) and is a little more expensive. That's the one I got this year and the current steel is S35VN. Love this little knife and in fact I consider it THE knife acquisition of 2018 for me. It will be used for woods duty (hiking companion, possibly hunting, and woods walks) mostly when I don't want to carry a larger fixed blade. Basically all I need.Like the knife not the para wrap.. Has anyone put a real handle on one of these?? Pics if ya can.. Saw the kits but was wondering if any other aftermarket?? Thanks..
Been there rabbit hunting and spent a fairly good amount of time looking for a slip joint or two I laid on the ground or a log when doing the field dressing chores. The Backpacker Pro would make a pretty good deer knife. I like a pointy blade for things along these lines. I'm just careful with where the point goes if you know what I mean.Thank You for that info!! As an avid rabbit hunter I do appreciate orange handled knives!!
