River Traders Medium Courer de Bois Knife

Medium Courer de Bois

Click here for more details on River Traders knives, and links to some reviews!

The Courer de Bois trade knife is named after the French "woods runners" who were prevalent in Colonial North America.  The blade has a slight drop-point profile and is suitable for dressing game, light skinning, or as an all-around utility knife.  Rather than a belt loop, the sheath for this knife features a long leather thong so that this knife can be carried around the neck.
