Just a couple in my case, but they are among my best and favorite folding knives. Would definitely go for a Cruwear Chief to round out the family.

I have a PM2, Manix, and Native in Cruwear

I replaced the light grey scales on the Manix, and also removed the liner jimping at the same time. I’m not a fan of dye jobs in general.

I have 6 different knives in Cruwear. Good stuff!

How do you like the Wilderness Explorer? Been eyeing that for my next fixed blade purchase for some time now.
I own quite few fixed blades, maybe 50+. It is easily in my top five. I have used it camping and hunting quite a bit. It has processed deer I have shot and is an awesome knife for that. I have also broken down pigs with it. It works well as a general camp/field knife as well.

Here are a couple pics of it in hand. It is a bigger knife and the handle has plenty of real estate. I wear a large/size 9 glove.

The handle is contoured with a coke bottle shape but is not as pronounced as on my BR Clip Point Hunter. I prefer the Wilderness Explorer handle. Here is a pic that shows the handle contouring as well as the stock thickness which is about 4mm. The edge and tip are ground nice and thin.

Here is just a pic of it in the “wilderness”. :)

Looks and sounds great! How does their Cruwear perform compared to your Cruwear Spydies like the Military? Any issues? You sometimes see some not so great things about BRK quality on some other forums, but the ones I have had in 3V all were top notch.

I very much prefer the thin convex grind on the BR so to me it seems to perform better. It is noticeably less stainless though. Hard to say how much of that is heat treatment and how much is a combination of being stored in a leather sheath and being exposed to lots of blood and plant goo.

They are all handmade and none of mine are perfect. I like the style, designs and performance so I don’t sweat little things. I can’t stop buying them honestly. I have a North Country EDC inbound. :)

Not to be an enabler but there is one just like mine on the exchange right now for $235. ;)
