I'm a big fan of the Bark River line - especially their bushcrafting line. I have an Aurora and it is truly an elite bushcrafting knife. Having had experience with the Golok and Clax, I also give them 2 thumbs up. And that, my friends, is the full extent of experience I've had with the Bark Rivers. Keep in mind, I do a lot of batoning in both boreal and temperate woodlands regions. And all 3 of those Bark Rivers are either medium or large in size. That said, I'd like to pick up the smallest Bark River knife I can find ... that can still effectively baton wood if need be. Yeah, I know ... small knives should not be performing that task on a consistent basis. But I would like to be able to have that versatility if the situation warrants it. This is really an inquiry involving stress threshholds - as smaller knives typically have problems with batoning stress on their weaker tang infrastructure. Still, I want a Bark River that is as small in footprint as possible. Both for weight and loadbearing-space reasons. Any suggestions and/or testimonials from you folks? Thanks!
