Moose Hand Forged Survival Knife

Like a moose. Tough, strong and nearly unstoppable. Another Cariboo Blades survival knife.

A moose browsing in among the willow at -40 and completely comfortable at home.

Every November the Moose start to move in. They like to eat our berry bushes and apple trees. We scare them off. They come back. Dogs don’t want anything to do with them. Eventually they get what they came for. Big, tough animals. That was then…

This winter a year old showed up without it’s mother. We shone a flashlight, it turned, left and hasn’t come back. Protecting our stuff. If it shows up again we’ll let it eat.

Moose are disappearing from here. Altered habitat from logging, less cover exposes the animals to more predators, more access gives hunter’s the advantage and then there some climate change.

Wolves follow the moose. The winter boreal forest is enchanted. Moose and wolves, ravens, lynx, bobcats, mice hares…As people drift farther away, out of mind, everything else suffers.

We create a saddle on the spine for more hand power. Use the knife as a draw knife. Battoning to split wood.
