The Recurve Version of the Fox River has a 3/4 Grind to the blade and an added False Swedge Grind to thin the point for fine work. The Recurve of the Blade’s Cutting Edge increases the slashing or cutting Power of the blade if used properly.
The Trick to Recurve Blades is to engage what you want to cut behind the Swell and then pull the Front Swell through the cut you have already started. These up-graded Knives with 3V will cut longer between touch ups and will take a lot more hard use. Note that we have left the Lanyard Extension on this version of the Recurve.
The Change to an upgraded steel enhances the Field use of the knife by increasing the edge retention of the knife. Jason at DLT (Who actually ordered this run) Asked Mike to enhance the ergonomics of the knife and make it almost like a totally new model in the Professional Series.
We extended the Handle Slabs, like we do on the New England Version that was originally ordered by Kevin Estella of Estella Wilderness Learning Center. We then used Corby bolts in the Handle Slabs and also shot a tube through the Lanyard Hole. These longer Handle Slabs were then Sculptured in the same style we use on the Aurora and Bravo-1. These Changes really did make the 3V Fox River look and feel like a New Model.
