    This adds a little more weight to the tip - It should be a real chopper.

    Blade Thickness .215 Inch
    Blade Steel: 5150 @ 57-58rc

    The New Grasso Bolo-II is the First in a series of Bolo Style Designs for Bark River Knives that are a Collaboration between Mike Stewart and Mike Grasso. Mike Grasso has been a Knife and Weapons Enthusiast his Whole Life and is an Honored Member of the Los Angeles Police Department.

    Grasso and Stewart have been life long friends and actually have been planning to do a line of knives for many years. The Grasso Bolo-II Design was finalized in January of 2012. The Bolo Design is a universally accepted one that excels in both chopping and cutting.

    Knives with a Non-Parabolic Curve are naturally easy to use with the Normal Ergonomic Swing of the Arm. This can be enhanced by using a Snap Cut Technique . You rock the Knife Back - Loosely Holding the Knife with the Thumb and First Finger and as you Quickly Descend with the blade - You Close Your Hand just past the Apex of the Swing to Accelerate the Blade before Impact.

    The large Sweet Spot is just behind the Widest Part of the Blade for Maximum Effect in both Cutting and Chopping.

    Once this Technique is Mastered You will accomplish more with less work . We chose 5160 for the Blade Steel because of it's Extreme Toughness.

    You will find This knife to be very well balanced and easy to use.

    The Sheath for this model was Designed by Mike Grasso and made by Gregg at Great Lakes Leather Works. This Sheath is made to be Carried Crossdraw.

    Once Unsnapped - You lift the Blade Clear of the Leather holding the Self Guard and remove the knife through the Open Spine of the Sheath.


    Specs:

    Overall Length: 14.675 Inches
    Blade Length: 9.250 Inches
    Blade Steel: 5160 @ 57-58RC
    Blade Thickness: .217”
    Weight: 20 Ounces


    Here is how we are planning handles:

    All will be Corby Bolts only - No Woods or Natural materials at all.

    No Spacers - No Mosaic Pins

    You can order Liners of any color - even if you do not see it listed in my Handle Selections in the Master List.

    We have the Following Liner Materials.

    Black Liners
    Red Liners
    White Liners
    Blue Liners
    Grey Liners
    Orange Liners
    Yellow Liners
    Green Liners

    Additional Handle Choices:

    Black Carbon Fiber *
    Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber *

    *Note that I have added Black Carbon Fiber and Lightening Strike Carbon fiber - These are great from a new source but they are very expensive. Lightening Strike is Carbon fiber Woven with Bronze Wire. It is an aero-space product designed to reduce damage to high-tech aircraft from lightening strikes. - Very Cool but mega expensive.

    We can also use Emergency Yellow G-10 or Bumblebee G-10 if you Special Order it in advance.
