Grohmann #3 Knife

Post by Canadian Guy » Tue Aug 11, 2015 9:19 pm

I have been wanting to get a quality fixed blade "bushcraft/survival/utility" knife for many years. I decided on the Grohman #3 Canadian Army Knife (aka boat knife) and finally ordered it and received it in the mail.

Grohman's website: http://www.grohmannknives.com/pages/r3s.html

Unboxing:

Canadian Army "Jump" Knife configuration, classic rosewood handle, high carbon stainless steel blade, overlap/army sheath:

Total length: 8-1/4", Blade approximately: 4" x 15/16", of 1/8" stock, Blade Configuration: Modified Drop Point,
Blade Steel: German 4116 Krupp (similar to 440C?) Stainless Steel. Weight: 9.6 oz, Hand-crafted in Canada:

Inscriptions on blade:

Full tang and belt loop on sheath:

Now I just have to get out and use it! I'll do a part II review once I have put this knife to use.

I picked up two Canadian Belt Knives at a gun show a few months back. They are, hands down, my favourite fine work blades. Those ergonomics are amazing.

They are nice to hold and a very different look then most of the survival/bushcraft ones out there.

An in depth analysis of the steel's heat treatment and grain structure of the wood determines the knife is of canadian origin. :lol:

I am so impressed with that Canadian knife and have the interest to own one. Now could I possibly own that one, any idea where could I possibly get an order?

Also the Roach Belly blade shape is very traditionally Canadian, going back AFAIK to French fur trappers.

Looks great by the way.

Yup looks very much like one from Bark River which also has Canadian in the model name.
