The mallard is our smallest fixed blade outdoor knife. It excels at the detailed work of processing birds, fish and small game. We also find it very useful for many steps in processing large game, deboning, for example. Besides game processing, the mallard makes a great light duty, fixed blade, EDC. It is well suited to food prep and a long list of other daily cutting tasks. It’s low profile and light weight mean it is easily carried in a pocket or backpack.
The Mallard, like all of North Arm’s outdoor knives, takes its name from West Coast fauna. The Mallard is the wild duck most people are familiar with and is well known in BC. It is the ancestor of many domesticated ducks.
This is the brief info sheet we include in the box with the Mallard. For further information on care and sharpening look at the pages under the “knife care” tab on the menu bar.
