Knife Description:

The Grasso Bolo II is a collaboration between Mike Stewart and Mike Grasso.

Mike Grasso has been a Knife and Weapons Enthusiast his whole life and was an Honored Member of the Los Angeles Police Department. Grasso and Stewart have been life-long friends and actually have been planning to design a line of knives for many years. The Grasso Bolo 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. 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 both Cutting and Chopping. Once this technique is mastered you will accomplish more chopping with less work.

The Bark River Grasso Bolo II packs an incredible punch in a medium sized Chopper – Camp Knife. Measuring 37.8 cm overall with a 22.9 cm Blade made of tough 5160 Spring Steel and a serious weight forward design, this blade will destroy obstacles such as brush, thickets, and even smaller trees!

Not only mean and ready for business, the Grasso Bolo II has sleek, sexy lines on it's big frame.

We chose 5160 for the Blade Steel because of the Extreme Toughness with a Rockwell Hardness of 57-58 RcH  You will find this knife to be very well balanced and easy to use.

The black Canvas Micarta Handle is contoured for comfort with a Lanyard Hole.

The knife carries in a top quality brown Deluxe Leather Sheath with a Belt Loop which was designed by Mike Grasso and made by Gregg Anderson at Great Lakes Leatherworks and is made to be carried Crossdraw.
