Do-It-All, Done Right.
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. Paired with MAGNACUT stainless steel, our most complete hunting knife is more wear and corrosion-resistant than ever, standing in a class of it's own.
Named for Lincoln, Montana’s Blackfoot River Valley where Josh grew up, the Blackfoot 2.0 Magnacut Edition 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.
MAGNACUT Stainless Steel
As a cryogenically heat-treated stainless steel, MAGNACUT provides the perfect blend of toughness, edge retention, and corrosion resistance. Unlike other stainless steel blades, MAGNACUT can be easily resharpened — even by novice knife owners. More wear-resistant than other stainless steels, and more corrosion-resistant than carbon steel, MAGNACUT is in a class of its own. Learn more about MAGNACUT Stainless Steel from the creator: Larrin Thomas.
Versatile Blade Shape
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.
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
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.

Hi Quality Craftsmanship, made by a Small Company In the USA !!! The knife itself is a piece of art that works flawlessly. Fit and finish is perfect !!!
I've been wanting to find some EDC blades that will be the knife for the apocalypse and last for many generations no matter the abuse dealt out to it. I've had better success with my stainless pocket knives. So I was looking for some stainless that had the features of a high end steel. I cam across Magnacut and have fallen in love with it. The next struggle was finding a good bladesmith who was producing a Magnacut knife that wasn't a decorative piece. I came across this and if Fieldcraft Survival is willing to work with MKC to create a blade I felt confident they were good people. I haven't had the blade very long but so far it has trimmed horse hair with ease, castrated about 200 fall bull calves, and has been excellent for taking twine off haybales. Most blades don't last long doing any of that. I haven't had to sharpen it yet. The fit is perfect in the hand even in heavy leather winter gloves. I haven't worried at all that I will slip with it. It is a bit too much for some of the jobs I thought I would use it for though. I dream of a liner lock pocket knife made with a Magnacut blade. For the time being though this will be the go to knife for me though. I really hope it holds up like it has been. I also really appreciate how quickly I receive the knife, it was shipped the next day would have been to my house in 3 days if the USPS didn't reroute it around a storm. The kydex sheath it comes with great belt clips but I opted to change those for ulticlip because it fits my needs better. I generally don't have it in a place that a belt clip would work. I don't hold that against MKC at all that is my own decision to make a change. I really look forward to more products from MKC
I have not got to actually put this knife to use just yet as I just received it and our deer season is over down here in the South. But I am in love with it overall. Love the looks and feel, love the blade symmetry and design, love how balanced it is in my hand. Overall, so far, I could not be more pleased and am looking forward to putting it to use here soon during Spring turkey season.
This knife slices cleanly through any chore, hunting, camping, very versatile. The sheath is excellent design, perfect for horizontal "scout" carry which I prefer. MagnaCut blade steel, which was perfectly sharpened, with ergonomic handle. High quality in every way, should last for many years of service.
Awesome craftsmanship razor sharp can’t wait to get it out in the field.
