The Chris Caine® Survival Tool, was designed by survival expert Chris Caine, based on his 15 years surviving in the British wilderness. This is 'a survival tool for the serious survivalist'.
The blade is virtually bombproof and was tested for 2 years in the forests of Britain, the Canadian wilderness, American deserts, the South African bush and the jungles of Borneo, before being put into production.
When chopping with this tool your fingers are kept well away from the material you are hitting, thanks to the deep curve in the cutting edge, making it harder for you to trap your fingers. Not only this but on the back of the blade we have rounded off a section so when you are hitting this tool with another cutting of wood you are less likely to damage anything, and also makes it more useful for beating materials to obtain the fibers within.
The Chris Caine® Survival Tool is hand made from start to finish, from profiling out the blades, hardening & tempering, assembly, grinding, right up to the final polish are all done in house.
We also have the Chris Caine® Military Survival Tool which comes with black micarta handles and blade coated with tough black Du-Pont Teflon and the Special Edition Chris Caine® Survival Tool which comes with beautifully polished walnut handle and high quality leather sheath.
The Chris Caine® Survival Tool is handcrafted by Samuel Staniforth, a company founded in 1864 in Sheffield, England and steeped in the tradition of producing the highest quality knives for professional users.
The blade laser cut from 5mm, 75 Carbon Steel 51/53 Rockwell and has a full tang. Each tool is supplied sharp, and strong enough to fell a large tree, yet at just over 750g, it's light enough to be worn on your belt.
The blade has a convex grind to allow for a more durable edge, and ease of sharpening, not only will this tool split logs for the fire, it will also allow you to shave some fire sticks with ease, making it able to go from heavy work to fine intricate work without a problem.
Further back along the blade the spine has been left with a crisp square edge, to allow you to scrape wood in order to obtain a very fine fibrous layer, which will easily take a spark for starting your fire.
The handle is black micarta with red liners has been designed with three main grips, meaning that power and control can be altered depending on the job in hand. The supplied Cordura sheath is also made to a high standard and fully articulated.
