Every so often, a new piece of backcountry gear comes along that turns status quo upside down. A piece of equipment tapping into the human ingenuity defining us as humans from other species. During the summer of 2020, an innovative product such as this hit the backcountry market, changing how you will pack your hunting kit in the future. GOAT KNIVES introduced its first flagship product, the CAPRA HUNTER Ti™.
We’ve been using this new Capra Hunter Ti™ knife by GOAT Knives on all of our bear hunts this season. It’s a slick new product.

The Capra Hunter Ti™ compresses several backcountry needs into a single 1.4-ounce piece of equipment. Yea, you read that right, it’s an all-in-one 1.4-ounce multi-tool, knife & repair kit. The Capra Hunter Ti™ will eliminate the need to pack extra tools in the field. As hunters, we always have a knife. Why not combine multiple tools into one? We did just that. Nothing like this exists on the market. It truly is going to lighten your backcountry hunting pack, help you organize, and simplify how you maintain and fix equipment in the field.
HERE ARE THE SPECS
This thing is beyond super ultralight weight. As stated, the Capra Hunter Ti™ weighs in at a feather-light 1.4 ounces. The titanium handle by itself only weighs 26 grams. If you don’t know, titanium is one of the strongest and lightest metals known to man. The Capra Hunter Ti™ will be the lightest, most useful piece of backcountry equipment you will take with you.
Truly, this multi-use knife is going to shave the weight you carry on your back. It does this by eliminating the need for multiple tools and being constructed with the lightest and strongest material available.
The knife handle has two slotted cutouts for two bits to be stored in the handle. The bits are held in place by four storage O-rings. The Capra Hunter Ti™ kit includes 8 bits to cover your all various allen head sizes on your equipment. Using the Capra Hunter Ti™ handle and bits, you can tighten or repair scope rings, picatini rails, bow sights, limb bolts, arrow rests, tripods, base plates, and spotting scopes in the field while actually decreasing your pack weight with this tool. We call that a backcountry win-win.
The multi-use lanyard is made from BCY cordage. This gives you the ability to repair archery D-loops and fall away rest cables if something breaks in the field. The BCY cord is also strong enough to replace tent guy lines, boot laces, zipper pulls, or even hang meat. The BCY material is basically a multi-tool in itself for other repairs and needs.
I love this new addition to my backcountry kit. It’s lightweight, very functional and has the tools built in to work on whatever weapon I’m carrying… absolutely love it!

AND OF COURSE, THE KNIFE
Last but not least, the knife. The handle is machined from fine grade 2 titanium for its ultralight and strength properties and the blades are razor sharp, lightweight, and easily replaceable by hand. This minimalistic ultra-light and superiorly tough knife will do it all. What more could you ask for out of your backcountry knife – nothing! The 60A replaceable blades cut through animal hide, hair, and meat like butter without the need of stopping to re-sharpen. One blade can get you through most big game animals and if it doesn’t, well just replace the blade in a matter of seconds.
