Chop. Cut. Pound. Dig. Camp. Survive… LIKE A BOSS.
As our biggest, widest, thickest blade yet, the Marshall Bushcraft Knife is truly the boss of the MKC lineup. Unlike our smaller, lighter hunting knives, the Marshall is specifically designed for bushcraft.
Measuring 12 5/8″ from tip to end with a 0.170″ spine, it’s stout enough to chop and baton wood for fire and shelter, split kindling, pound tent stakes, dig holes, cut rope and cordage, dress game, prep food, and assist in self defense.
The Marshall takes its name from the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area in Western Montana, known for its breathtaking landscape and high numbers of grizzly bears, wolves, elk, moose, cougars, and goats. “The Bob” will challenge even the most seasoned hunters and adventurers, and the MKC Marshall Bushcraft is the ideal companion.
DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF FEATURES
Parkerized 52100 Carbon Steel Blade The Marshall is made from cryogenically treated 52100 high-carbon ball-bearing steel, achieving the perfect balance of edge retention, toughness, wear resistance, and easy resharpening. The 7 5/8″ blade is parkerized to a matte black finish, which minimizes rust and glare. Finger Guard and Groove The built-in finger guard keeps your hand from riding up on the blade — even in cold, wet conditions. The Marshall also features a finger groove above the guard, allowing you to choke up on the blade for added control when performing finer tasks. Flat-Sided G-10 Handle We gave the Marshall’s 5″ handle flat sides, which are particularly useful for bushcraft tasks. The flat sides allow your hand to lock in place to prevent twisting or turning when chopping. The Marshall’s handle scales are made from bullet-proof G-10 that can withstand any pounding or abuse and won’t absorb blood or moisture. Hidden Lanyard Hole For additional bushcraft safety, we’ve added a hidden lanyard hole on the bottom of the handle. This allows you to attach the included paracord to form a wrist loop that protects yourself and others from accidental drops when chopping. Free Sharpening for Life & Beyond Generations® is our promise to restore your knife to its original, unmatched working condition. MKC will clean, sharpen, repair, and even reshape your blades when necessary, as well as rewrap handles free of charge. While we perform all necessary sharpening and maintenance, our aim is not to return your knife to its brand new appearance. Learn more about the MKC Generations Promise.
Each Montana Knife Company™ Marshall comes with an exclusive Kydex sheath. This click-in locking sheath can be adjusted for either horizontal or vertical carry, left or right-hand placement, and varying blade retention. The quick-attach pack strap and belt clip is reversible and can be attached without removing your belt or strap.

If I could catch the facial reactions of the individuals I’ve shown this beauty to, then I could do this review justice. Specs aside, it’s stunning in appearance. Put it through the wringer on any upcoming outdoor adventure, not only are the specs going to speak for themselves, but you’re going to have a ball self-reviewing the Marshall’s capabilities. This will be the new generation of knife I’ll pass down someday much like the Bowie knives that my grandfather passed down to me. It’s functional, and it’s forever.
Functional and Forever is why we do what we do! And especially when it comes to our Generations program. These knives are meant to be passed down and we can only make that happen by producing quality stuff! Thank you so much for the great review, and glad to hear you like it!!
When you you have the Marshall back in stock? I would really like to add one to my kit.
Really soon! Be on the lookout - like REALLY soon!
What a knief buy one when you get a chance. Love it, stays in my 4wheel pop up
Thanks David! The Marshall is definitely a 'do it all' knife and great to keep around!
Now that’s a knife
Surprisingly light for the size. Now that you got my review make some magna cut mini goats. I need at least two or three
Thanks! Magnacut Mini's are on the way!
Such an amazing knife. From fighting grizzlies to chopping firewood this knife handles it all. I never set out for an adventure without it. The quality is top notch and it shows in the craftsmanship. I look forward to passing this knife down to my son knowing without a doubt that he will be able to pass it down to his someday.
The Marshall truly is a knife built for any task, and no doubt could hold its own against a griz - although we don't recommend trying it! In all seriousness, glad you are enjoying it and thank you for the review!
