The Survivor was designed to be a fairly compact minimalist survival knife and its the real deal. The knife is a solid full tang design with a G-10 handle ready to take plenty of abuse. The notch in the back of the blade is designed to act as a striker for the included Swedish FireSteel®. The sheath can be mounted vertically or horizontally and holds the Swedish FireSteel®, emergency whistle, and five feet of cord. It can even be fashioned into a spear with the included cord.
