New from White River Knives is what they’re calling a “clever camp cleaver.”  Inspired by knives made at the turn of the 20th century, this all-in-one hunting knife is a head-turner.

The cleaver has an overall length of 10.25 inches and a blade length of 5.5 inches. That puts it right in that Goldilocks zone of being not too big, not too small but just right.

Skinny, slicing, chopping, this knife will excel at any task, says White River president John Cammenga.

“Our Bushcraft team designed this knife for the myriad of duties it can fulfill in the camp or field,” said Cammenga in a press release. “This combination of blade curve, thickness and bevel shape, together with the ergonomically designed handle, make this a highly-versatile and efficient knife.”


  • Blade length: 5.5-inches
  • Blade thickness: 0.156-inch
  • Overall length:10.25-inches
  • Weight: 9.2 Oz.
  • Sheath: Heavy Duty Leather
  • MSRP: $230.00
Camp Cleaver

A perfect companion for hunters, campers or backpackers.

The stone-washed blade is constructed from top-of-the-line S35VN steel. It sharpens easy, holds its edge and will last for generations.  Handles are formed from linen Micarta, a go-to material for blade makers due to its near indestructibility.

In addition to the full-tang cleaver, purchasers will receive a handmade leather sheath.  So, a high-quality, 10-inch knife and leather sheath for $230.  Not a bad deal at all.

White River notes that quantities of this particular knife are limited.  Visit White River’s website to learn more.

All White River Knives are made in the U.S.A.  That includes handle material, blade steel, and sheath components.  Every White River knife is guaranteed for life.  If “you are not 100% satisfied with your White River Knife, return it for repair or replacement, free of charge, no questions asked.”

    Price is way to high to consider. I buy a lot of knives. You can buy an American made Bear and Son Bowie knife for under $100. I have one and it does all the camp chores I need done.
