This River Knife is purpose built for whitewater raft guides, whitewater kayakers, swiftwater rescue technicians, canoe trippers, sea kayakers and anyone else participating in moving water scenarios. If there's rope and current involved you should always have a knife!



The sheath features two mounting options. You can either secure the sheath to any PFD's shoulder strap via the supplied paracord, or fasten the sheath to any standard 1" PFD lash tab using the accessory lash tab clip (sold separately). Instructions for both methods are included in the box.



The knife is constructed with indestructible G10 handle scales, rough finished for superior grip even when wet, the handle is ergonomic and indexes easily. A single finger groove increases retention in the hand during high stress situations. Most importantly, the handle scales are ultra thin reducing the bulk of the knife when worn on a PFD. Each knife handle has a lanyard hole.

The blade steel is high quality and professionally heat treated 440C stainless steel. It requires little maintenance though the more you care for it the longer it will last you. The steel is .156” thick making this an extremely rugged knife while the flat grind on the blade creates an excellent profile behind the cutting edge allowing it to perform any task. It's built to last decades. 



The knife comes standard as a drop point style blade. You may request a conversion to the classic blunt safety tip featured on most river knives at no additional charge.

The blade is 3.25” when in the drop point configuration and 3” when converted to safety blunt. This meets Maine IF&W regulations for whitewater guides in both configurations. 



A serrated edge add on is available when purchasing. *Serrated edges are hand filed, as such there is a $15 dollar add-on for serrated. On that note, it is our opinion that a straight edge cuts better than a serrated edge, when it's kept sharp. If you're not the type of person to sharpen your blade when it shows signs of use, I would recommend a serrated edge. A serrated edge will cut well long after the knife has lost some of it's peak sharpness. That said, 440C that's been properly heat treated, like you're purchasing here, will hold a good sharp edge for a long time.



Our no-nonsense, transferable Lifetime Warranty covers every knife. Whether you're the original owner or it's passed onto you, the warranty stays put. For more information please see our warranty page - here.



Every knife and sheath is hand made in a small shop in Maine with care. Many hours have been poured into each blade along with a decade of experience guiding and paddling Maine rivers. Your support is so appreciated. This is your do-all multi day adventure tool. River runner by day, camp chef by night. You’re going to love it.


This knife meets Maine IF&W requirements for Registered Whitewater Guides.

Perfect for White Water Guides! Excellent Customer Service!!

I bought a river knife with blunted tip for my partner as a birthday present and he LOVES it! Sharp and well-made blade, low-profile and secure lash tab, light-weight, durable and tight-fitting sheath. Plus, the style of Walker Knives adds a unique flare to his set up!

I cannot say enough good things about the customer service! Taylor did everything he could to adjust my order to suit my needs and was able to quickly ship me the knife in a serious time crunch. Thank you thank you Walker Knife Co for making everything so easy and for putting an excited smile on my partner's face!

After years of thinking I’ve found the perfect river knife my search has stopped. Functional, high visibility, sleekness for a tight fit and durability are a few notable aspects of the tool. Don’t miss out for the sale windows on the company’s social media and website as they are rather hard to acquire and for good reason. Shipping was made easy and I could not be more pleased with the whole process from blade options, colors, sheathes etc.
