Cold Steel 36MC Drop Forged Survivalist Fixed (8.00 Inch Bronze 52100 Carbon Steel Blade) Integral Handle + Secure-Ex Sheath CS36MC
While on a research trip in Argentina, Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson had the pleasure of using a solid steel hunting knife by French knifemaker Michel Achez.
He was incredibly impressed by Monsieur Achez's knife, which was both simple in design and astonishingly functional.
Inspired by Michel's work (and with his blessing), Lynn began exploring how to bring this classic hunter to a larger audience and also expand the design into other platforms.
The Drop Forged Survivalist is expertly heat treated and drop forged from 52100 high carbon steel with a Rockwell hardness of 58-59 for superior toughness. Its continuously curved, super-wide clip point blade is both sharp and strong, designed to put in great work in even the most demanding conditions.
With no handle to break or no superfluous parts to rot, crack or get damaged in the field, the Drop Forged Survivalist is a no-nonsense hard-working outdoor/hunting knife and survival tool.
Its ergonomic handle, with its integral finger guard deep comfortable trough and lanyard hole offers a very secure and comfortable grip even when wearing thick, heavy workman's gloves.
Supplied with a durable Secure-Ex sheath, the Drop Forged Survivalist is sure to be appreciated and valued by those who will marvel at its performance and value for the money.

For my needs this blade couldn't be better.
This is a perfect survival / outdoors woodsman knife. Part hatchet, prybar, spade, blade, and lancepoint. Barton's like splitting wedge.
Massive and sturdy; maybe a little too big for delicate skinning or gut work.
Flaming sharp out of the box. Fits my hand well and is comfortable; I was concerned about the comfort as the handle is just steel but CS did a great job of rounding the corners and leaving it thick enough.
I expect cold steel will eventually make some improvements but I can't imagine what they will be.
Get it now, then get the improved version and retire this one as a collection piece.
I was very pleased with the knives I purchased and was also very pleased with the quick shipping of my purchase. I plan to buy knives from this company again in the near future.
