CRKT's Terzuola Survival Rescue Knife (TSR) is a survivalist’s best friend and Mother Nature’s worst enemy. Its handle conceals a powerful secret - a versatile, fully stocked survival kit. Although a skilled survivalist could fashion practically anything he or she needs from woodsy resources, you have to admit: a magnesium edge, a reflective stainless steel plate and paracord can make a Darwinian difference when you're deep in remote back country. World-renowned knife-making pioneer Bob Terzuola designed his namesake knife in his shop in Albuquerque, N.M. He channeled years of experience serving in the Peace Corps in Guatemala and directing war damage surveys in Central American jungles to dream up the ultimate survival knife. It’s hard to imagine a single knife that’s worthy of his famous name, but the TSR delivers, boasting a versatile modified drop point blade forged from pro-grade steel, with a clean satin finish. There’s a small hole bored into the base of the blade - great for attaching to a wooden shaft to create a makeshift hunting spear if needed. The stainless steel tang is hollow and the glass-reinforced nylon handles are easily removed to reveal fishing line, fishing hooks and dental floss, which serious survivalists know is surprisingly useful and versatile in a pinch. No space on the injection molded sheath is wasted. It includes extra paracord for wrapping, has a ceramic sharpening edge on one side, and the other boasts a magnesium edge to help start fires when the temperature drops. Lastly, one panel on the inside of the sheath has a reflective stainless steel plate for signaling aircraft or approaching parties when you need to get bailed out of a mess. "Survival of the fittest" is the name of the game. When the stakes are high, don't trust your life with anything else. Always keep the CRKT Terzuola Survival Rescue Knife (TSR) close.
