This is my first “Survival Knife” It is made of Damascus steel with Canary wood handle scales. Hard to make out in the picture but that is a 4 leaf clover set into the left side of the handle. This knife includes 5’ of 550 Paracaord, Compass, Matches, Fishing kit, and a sewing kit in the handle. The handle can be opened with any flat screw driver, coin, or another knife blade. I am considering a series of survival and tactical knives.

Beautiful steel, Dan! I’m amazed how much stuff you packed into that small knife!

Dan, this is nice. Quite a lot of detail.

Are you predicting an impending apocalypse?? The real purpose of survival knives, some might say, is to kill the bear that is munching on your back, right????

Will it do the trick?? Will it hold a can of pepper spray?

Well even if there is no apocalypse now, there may be one in the future. And in the mean time, that is a very cool knife to look at and play with.

You are having way too much fun while I slave away in the shop. The dining room table just needs some work on the edges to clean up epoxy drip, and it is done. Maybe today. Working on painting the chairs. Bleh!!

How do you smuggle in the Damascus steel? ...(-:

Later…

I never know what I am going to see, because I feel like a zombie when I wake up. No one even attempts conversation with me until I have two cups of coffee down the hatch.
