Username Post: Bark River Bravo 2 review        (Topic#891084)

Hi, I just wanted to do a quick review about Bravo 1 bigger brother and share some thoughts and pics with all of you :).

Bark River Bravo 2

The overall shape is very similiar to Bravo 1. The balance is different, but still very, very good. The thumb ramp is not soo obvious, and it doesn't get in the way with some activities like it did with the Bravo 1. Dunno why. It comes with very nice leather sheath, although for wet conditions I do prefer kydex.

The blade

steel - А2, 58 HRC
length - 17,8 mm
thickness - 5,5 mm
width - ~30 mm.

It's scary sharp out of the box. I'm in love with BRKT convex, since I've touched Bravo 1. After some polishing the steel gets almost rust resistent ... it still stains.

The handle

As with Bravo 1 - amazing ergonomics.

The Sheath

In conclusion as i've said in other topics - a must have.

Thanks. Used a cheap Canon A-series ... Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of a kydex sheath I'm making for the B2 ...

+1 on that. Thanks for posting them. BTW, that looks like a new grind. My B2 (first production run) is full convex. Yours looks like
a sabre grind. Enjoy the knife, you've chosen wisely.
