Exclusive Blade

The Kestrel Knives Ti Backpacker is a new titanium blade available exclusively through Massdrop, designed specifically for ultralight enthusiasts in mind. Now wrapped with Lawson 3mm Glowire, the Ti Backpacker offers even more utility and comfort. Weighing in at 0.45 oz, it’s an easy-to-carry knife with a lot of capability.

Note: At check out you will have the option of Glowire color - black, red, orange, blue, green or yellow. This drop is limited to 50 knives. Due to additional scrutiny and increased seizures at Customs this drop will be limited to domestic users, though all existing orders will be honored.

Design and Function

From the choice of Rust Proof Aerospace Grade Titanium to the ultralight skeletonized full handle, Kestrel has come up with a knife that weighs a mere 0.45 oz (13 g). The Ti Backpacker excels at slicing and cutting thanks to the micro serrated tungsten carbide embedded convex edge. Easily sharpened, the Ti Backpacker is the perfect ultralight fixed blade knife with a versatile straight back design and the functional simplicity of the sheath.

Skeleton Handle

The Ti Backpacker is designed with a skeleton handle that is very light yet highly functional. The handle is sufficiently comfortable as is; wrapping it in cord adds another degree of comfort, while providing an emergency cord that's always within reach.
