Capable of tackling a surprisingly wide range of outdoor tasks, there's more to the Elk Ridge Survivor Knife than first meets the eye. The knife itself is a classic jack-of-all-trades fixed blade - solid, dependable and razor sharp, with no fancy ornamentation to break or art to fade. It boasts a robust 5 3/10" stainless steel blade with a resilient, carefully honed edge and a nonreflective satin finish. The handsome handle is sturdy pakkawood, ergonomically contoured for a superb grip. But, as promised, there's more here than you might have noticed! Tucked away in the included heavy duty nylon sheath is a handy mini survival kit - fire starter with flint and striker, moderate grit sharpening stone and a sizable bundle of tough 550 paracord that's easily secured to the reinforced lanyard holes on the sheath or knife handle. At 10 1/2" overall, the Elk Ridge Survivor easy to carry anywhere - especially important, given that emergencies and/or survival situations typically strike without warning at any time, in any place. Sure, there are fancier knives out there, but refined materials and pretty accents don't matter a bit when you're deep in remote back country or trying to tackle demanding jobs around the farm or home. The Elk Ridge Survivor Knife has everything you need and spares you everything you don't - it's the perfect trusty, go-to fixed blade knife for anyone!
