BCWF 60th Anniversary Commemoration Knife

The Story behind the BCWF Hunters Knife

In the summer of 2013, the late Rick Mayor, BCWF Vice President at the time, got together with knife maker Peter Demmer from Terrier Blades, and they worked together to design a new knife model which Rick thought should be the BCWF exclusive Hunters Knife. Rick’s idea was that the BCWF should have their own exclusive hunting knife, an icon for the avid B.C. hunter, made from high quality materials with a very unique design. Rick’s experience as an avid outdoors man and hunter was incorporated into the design.

It took several meetings and discussions until Rick was finally happy with the design and three prototypes were made. Rick presented the prototypes to the BCWF Board of Directors ahead of the 2013 AGM. Unfortunately events in Rick’s life prevented him from finishing this project, as he passed away February 2014.

To celebrate the BC Wildlife Federations 60th Anniversary, and to honour Ricks memory, we have created two editions of the BCWF Hunters Knife based on Rick and Peters vision.

The BCWF 60th Anniversary Commemoration Hunters Knife comes in a Limited Edition and an Outdoors Edition. Both are well suited and designed for the rough outdoors. Handmade with the highest quality materials they represent the old hunter’s idea of a knife that lasts a lifetime, which can be passed down to future generations.

The Limited Edition                                                               

The knife features a richly colored Arbutus handle. Rick himself proposed Arbutus as it is one of the most distinct trees in the coastal part of our province. However Arbutus is a natural, very hard and dense wood so it will need some care when exposed to the elements; periodical cleaning and slightly oiling it with good wood/furniture oil is recommended.

  • Blade made of CPM S35VN stainless knife steel, 4” long, hollow ground 
  • Bolster is polished brass for perfect color combination with the Arbutus handle
  • The sheath is made out of genuine leather.
  • Arbutus handle
  • Overall length of the knife is 8 ¼”
  • Blade thickness is 1/8”
  • Gold plated inlay with a 3D rams head in the handle
  • Inscription on blade "Celebrating 60 Years, BC Wildlife Federation"
  • Only 25 available for order!
  • BCWF Member price only $340 + taxes
  • 20% of the proceeds donated back to the BCWF! 

The Outdoors Edition                                                          

The Outdoors Edition is designed for the rough use in the outdoors when camping, hiking hunting etc.   

The handle is made of Dymond wood, more suited for exposure to the elements and regular use. This wood is very resistant to moisture, heat, shrinkage etc. and is a widely used product for outdoor knives and tool handles. Dymond wood will handle all the different challenges in the outdoors and is mostly carefree.

  • Blade made of CPM S35VN stainless knife steel, 4” long, hollow ground
  • Handle is Dymond wood, colored in silver/black  
  • The sheath is genuine leather
