In the words of David ""Norseman"" Williams USMC (Ret)


"We all have different ideas about what makes the perfect outdoor and survival blade. This is what makes the knife industry so diverse and exciting. But for all the millions of designs out there, I could not find a single one that fits snugly in a tin and could also be used for more than skinning a sparrow. So I set out to design one! What I came up with is the S.N.A.P. Card. It is 1095 HC Steel with a coating of Ceracoat in canyon red. It is 1/8" thick and it has sort of a modified chisel grind on the two cutting edges. The full kit weighs in at just 5 oz and the blade alone is 2 oz. So at 5 oz and about the size of a pack of cigarettes you can carry it practically everywhere and never leave home without the ability to survive a few uncomfortable nights stranded in the wilderness.

There is no magic formula that will make a small knife perform like a large one. That is why I did not shrink a traditional knife down to fit in the tin. I started with a piece of steel that would fit the space. Next, I made a list of the main functions that it MUST be able to perform. Only then did I design the blade so that it would meet or exceed the primary functions in a survival scenario. A byproduct of this approach is that the tool itself is non-threatening in appearance to the uninitiated. This means that you can use it in everyday circumstances like opening packages or cutting a sandwich without alarming your coworkers or onlookers. The S.N.A.P. tool is a nontraditional, purpose designed, survival and EDC blade that you can depend on when it matters and your life is on the line."

    Card Sharp

    Posted by Mark b on 26th Sep 2015

    I got my first survival card over thirty years ago and the dozens bought since have never improved much on the original. Until now that is, this SNAP tool is excellent.

    It is sharp OTB and genuinely hard as nails, whilst not looking threatening . The survival kit included is also well thought out.

    Well worth the money.
