In a few short weeks my dad and I are heading up to Rapid River for a week long, much over due, hunting trip to a place we went 30 years ago with my best friend, who passed this spring. We always talked about going back and now with him dead and dad 86 its time.  We will be practically within spitting distance of the old Marbles knife factory which now is owned and makes Bark River knives. Mike Stewart of the old Blackjack knife fame bought the factory when Atlanta Cutlery bought out the Marbles name and moved production to other countries like India and China.

I have a Marbles I watched being built at the factory years ago on that first hunt there, and it seems somehow fitting to buy a Bark River 30 years later on Dons memorial hunt. Or at least that is how I am selling it to my wife.

Keep us posted as to what you purchased and if you are now in a divorce.

I stopped at Smoky Mountain Knife Works once.  Thank goodness we had enough money after that to get back to Florida.

Well, it was easier than I originally thought it would be. Firstly, Bark River was not open for tours of the factory and they do not sell directly from the factory. The local distributor of Bark River knives only had one model in stock and it had brown linen micarta handle scales which did not ring my chimes. Hopefully next trip up the selection will be better, I still really want one, or more, Bark Rivers. And being able to hold it in hand beforehand really makes the choices easier.
