Mission Statement: Purpose and Goals:
We, the members of the Bark River Knife Collectors Association are dedicated to fostering the interest in, and the knowledge and history of Bark River Brand knives.
The Association will encourage and support those who are interested in and collect this brand of knives, and will act as a clearinghouse for information and related activities.
Though being a collector is not a membership requirement, the Association encourages all members to become involved in buying,
selling and trading knives, as well as in exchanging information about these knives with other members.
