Mountain Caper by Kestrel Knives

Mountain Caper

I founded Kestrel Knives in 2011 because I wanted to make extremely lightweight knives that maintain the durability required for ultralight hunters and backpackers. I have combined my years of in the field experience with input from my customers to create a wide range of knives for a variety of different uses.

Having the right tools to process game in the field saves time and energy. Most knives are unneccesarily heavy and replaceable blades can be dangerous. Over a year ago I began the development on a simple and lightweight knife specifically designed for caping animals that wouldn’t need constant re-sharpening or blade changes.

I have made a series of prototypes  that have been sent around the world for field testing in different conditions on different species. The feedback has been amazing. By participating in this project you have the opportunity to help finalize the design and features of the Mountain Caper. Everyone that submits a design through the development tool will have an opportunity to fund the Mountain Caper project with the initial pledges at up to 50% off full price. (Ultralight Kydex Sheath included)
