When an ultralight backpacking gear company and a local artisan blacksmith love each other very much… the AntiGravityGear UL Bushcraft knife is born. Our love child is built strong enough to take on the rigors of backcountry adventure without weighing you down. We chose 1/8” AEB-L stainless steel for the 4“ blade. Its tough metallurgical makeup has just the right amount of carbon content to hold its fine, strong edge intact while remaining corrosion resistant, and light weight.
The precision Scandi grind bevel is perfect for batoning, feathering, shaving, whittling, or skinning and the spine has a sharp 90 degree edge for scraping kindling and fire steel. We chose black walnut which is a lower density and lighter weight hardwood, and the grip profile is a dream to, well…. handle. Forget the notion that this piece of ultralight gear should be treated with kid gloves. To lighten things up we skeletonized the shank and left the brass fittings hollowed out to shed every extra gram possible without compromising the overall integrity of the knife in the slightest. It comes with a low profile, light, and extremely durable 1.4 oz. Kydex sheath with a virtually indestructible poly-resin belt clip.
Forget about your preconceived notions about the heartiness of “ultralight gear.’ The AntiGravityGear UL Bushcraft Knife is tough enough to take on the rigors of your backcountry adventures without weighing you down on the trail. Feather with it, baton with it, and then cut your summer sausage. This lightweight beauty will do it all.
Your UL Bushcraft knife was built to withstand the full riggors of backcountry life. Feather with it, baton with it, and then cut your summer sausage… but take care not to cut metal or drop the blade on rocks or concrete. Your knife may be sharpened with a strop or diamond whetstone. Feel free to get your knife wet, but please dry it off when you are done and do not leave it laying in the sun and rain for weeks on end. It’s all common sense, really. Use your knife – – it will take good care of you. Please take good care of it!
If you are not comfortable sharpening your knife yourself, we are happy to give your blade a good reconditioning for a nominal fee that basically covers the cost of safely shipping your knife.
We warranty each and every AntiGravityGear UL Bushcraft Knife to be free of defects in material and workmanship. We will repair or replace with a new knife, at our option, any knife that is defective.
