The benefit of a tough, quality knife cannot be underestimated when it comes to survival situations. Any serious bushcrafter or survival expert will have his or her knife at the top of their list of priorities. When it comes to what type of knife then personal preference takes over, but the basics; good steel, ease of carry, reliability should be a given.
Maxpedition's range of fixed blade knives cover the basics and then some. They are available in a variety of blade shapes and sizes. The Long Clip Point is a hard working tool available in three different sizes. The blade is D2 tool steel with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60, it is double tempered and benefits from a cryogenic heat treatment making it ultra hard with a higher than usual resistance to corrosion. The blade is coated with Industrial hard chrome plating to 1 mil (0.001") over matte bead blast. The grind is full height flat with a 1" curved choil.
The handle is an ergonomic overmould nylon with EDM texturing with a thong hole sized to allow 1" ballistic webbing to pass through. It is a hidden full tang design with 4 keys and 2 through holes for secure integration with molded handle.
It is supplied with a Kydex belt sheath with dual retention lips, stainless steel rivets and lashing holes designed to fit 550 paracord.
