The Only Hunting Knife You’ll Ever Need.
When Master Bladesmith Josh Smith launched Montana Knife Company, he set out to create the ultimate do-it-all knife — small and light enough to pack on a goat hunt, durable enough to completely field dress a moose, and shaped to gut, cape, skin, and debone with ease. He called this flagship knife “The Blackfoot,” and it remains his go-to blade.
Named for Lincoln, Montana’s Blackfoot River Valley where Josh grew up, the Blackfoot is the ideal companion for every activity in the region: from fly fishing to bird hunting to big game expeditions. It’s the perfect fusion of thinness, lightness, sharpness, toughness, and versatility. If you can only take one knife with you in the field, this is it.
DETAILED BREAKDOWN OF FEATURES
The Blackfoot’s drop point blade shape is key to its versatility. It has enough tip for easily caping out an animal or doing other fine work (yes, including those difficult tear ducts), but enough belly for skinning and deboning.
Parkerized 52100 Carbon Steel Blade
The Blackfoot 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 blade is also parkerized to a matte black finish, which minimizes rust and glare.
Compact Size & Weight
Most knives — especially “do-it-all” knives — are completely overbuilt for the job they’re intended for. Not the Blackfoot. With a blade length of 3.5" and a total length of 7.75", the Blackfoot can go anywhere. We also skeletonized the tang (the steel part of the handle) to shed unnecessary weight, bringing the total weight to 3.6 oz. But don’t let the small size fool you — the Blackfoot is big and strong enough for heavy work, like cutting through a pelvis or rib cage.
Bulletproof G-10 Handle Scales
The G-10 handle scales are equally as tough as the blade. G-10 is famous for being strong, durable, and lightweight — unmatched by any natural handle material. It can withstand any abuse without cracking or breaking, won’t absorb blood, and provides excellent grip, even when wet. The contours of the handle are also designed for comfort in extended use. The G-10 scales are attached with locally sourced titanium screws and high-strength epoxy to secure the perfect, lasting fit.

I bought a Blackfoot 2.0 when Josh made a few out of the Magnacut stainless steel, and it has been one of my favorite fixed blades ever since I received it. It's compact, light, comfortable to hold, and comes to you extremely sharp. The Magnacut is a revelation as well, it holds an edge well and is really tough and really corrosion resistant. I love this knife and look forward to getting a Marshall in Magnacut when those are eventually made.
The Blackfoot 2.0 is a great size for daily carry. Sheath is top quality. I particularly like the the contrast of the hunter orange cerakote and black g10 handle. The one thing I would add would be a lanyard attachment point like the Marshal has. All in all I'm a very happy MKC customer!
I bought this as a gift for a fellow outdoorsman and I inspected it when it arrived and it was super high quality just like I expected. I already own another MKC knife I use myself and love it. I know this knife will be a great addition for my friends pack.
Sharp right out of box, can hardly wait for hunting season. MKC always the best thank you Brian
