The Aurora has been designed as an Ideal Bushcraft Knife. We took over two years to develop and test the knife by making a number of prototypes and putting the prototypes in the hands of experienced bushcrafters and outdoorsman in the North America – Europe and the U.K. We took that input and further refined the design to its final form. The handle is 100% ergonomic for use in the hand in any common grip while using the knife as a working tool. The point is in line for Drilling and the over all balance of the knife is neutral so it does not favor the handle or the blade in use. You will find it to be one of the most useful tools made today for serious outdoor use in wilderness living and wilderness survival.
