This is Michael’s popular Crusher / Survival Model – a Big knife that inspires confidence and purpose built for Self Reliance
The profile of this knife is immediately recognizable. Due to the Profile and Balance Point, this knife would excel at both Chopping and Heavy Cutting. The Blade has a Two Tone Finish, the Heat Treat Scale was left on the Flats and a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed Finish was applied to the Hand Ground Bevels.
It measures .170 Thick and is a Whopping 1 7/8″ Wide at the Front! The Top Bevel is not sharp but would make easy work of small Chopping or Prying Jobs. Michael has included a generous sized Ferrocerium Rod with Custom Handle that piggy backs on the outside of the Kydex Sheath.
The Hand Ground blade was crafted from Super Strong 80CrV2 steel and given a Cryogenic Quench. This steel has properties that make it unique among High Carbon Steels. It excels at Toughness and is widely known as a Superior Performer. It has a good amount of Carbon and a Higher Chromium content plus the addition of Vanadium for Stain Resistance.
This is a Robust Full Tang Knife with a Thumb Ramp for added Grip Security.
The Handle Scales are a Layered Black and Blue Micarta that have a subtle Surface texture for an enhanced grip. The Scales are attached with Torx Screws and Michael gave them a Contoured Hand Filling Shape. The Handle also has a Slightly Exposed Butt which could be used as a makeshift Glass Breaker.
The knife comes with a Secure, Custom Molded Black Kydex Belt Sheath. Included is a Paracord Lanyard and a FREE Matching Firesteel in a Piggy Back carry on the Custom Kydex Sheath.
This Sheath also has a Removable Drop Belt Loop attachment ~ so that you can add other Mounting Hardware should you prefer.
A true top shelf package ~ includes a Hand Signed COA
