Designed as a survival equipment that might actually be used, the knife is not oversized or burdened with superfluous features that just get in the way. It is more compact and lightweight than other "survival" fixed blades, so it is easy to carry on any trip.
The blade is 440C heat treated to hold an edge while not becoming too brittle. It features a steep flat grind to provide maximum blade strength to withstand rugged use in a true survival situation.
The addition of a G-10 handle makes this knife nearly indestructable.
