JOKER AVISPA / CM-117
BS9 Bushcraft & Survival - MICARTA & KYDEX Neck Knife
Joker’s BS9 Bushcraft and Survival Knife, Avispa (Wasp) follows Joker’s mark of traditional patterns into practical modern knife design. The beauty of this model (and series) is the masterful finish of both the knife and its accompanying sheath which I know will be a standout for anyone who appreciates quality edgeware.
The Avispa encompasses a robust full-tang blade crafted from Molybdenum Vanadium (57HRC) 3mm thick steel. The ‘working’ section of the blade is 8cm long and 25mm wide. The unique black and yellow combination micarta scales are contoured for a comfortable fit and include an elegant swelling and downward sweep on its’ edge side providing some protection from a hand slipping forward on to the blade so to ensure a secure grip. The handle is ergonomic and although small can be used with larger hands. The grooves on the spine of the blade make the knife more manouverable and comfortable to use.
‘Bushcraft and Survival’ knives must be able to handle each one of the several tasks that might arise in an emergency situation (water, shelter, warmth and food) where surviving the experience is paramount. The knife must respond appropriately to the various situations that might be met in satisfying the supply of each of these.
Such tasks include whittling, notching, lapping and shaping tasks which prove effective with this well-balanced, petite though solid knife, or shape an efficient digging stick from a suitable branch are achievable with the 3mm thick, razor-sharp, flat ground blade. The flat grind allows for easy sharpening in the field and maintains a fine cutting edge for meat preparation. The Avispa's drop-point blade facilitates a proficient skinning and harvesting utensil for small to medium sized game.
The Avispa is presented with well-finished, lightweight and robust kydex sheath which is reinforced with rivets where necessary. As the rivets are hollow, a thong (included paracoid) can be passed through them to tie the sheath along a belt in a horizontal carry or fasten it to webbing straps or loop it around your neck allowing for a range of flexible ‘carries’ that would suit any situation.
