Survival/Rescue operations demand a versatile knife able to withstand the most extreme abuse. The SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) was designed specifically with this in mind. The blade is finished with a rich Tuff-Ex coat which helps to protect the AUS 8A Stainless steel from the elements. It features a tremendously strong clip point thats fine enough for delicate work, yet possesses enough belly for efficient cutting, slashing and skinning strokes as well. At 3/16 of an inch thick, the Survival Rescue Knife offers the sturdiest possible point and edge configuration, without sacrificing sharpness. The SRK's handle sports a single quillon finger guard and a deeply checkered Kray-Ex grip.
All of the knives featured in the Battle Ready Classics Series have been made by Cold Steel for many years and are well proven in the field as well as in hand to hand combat. Frankly, they have been scratching their heads trying to figure out how they could improve them without drastically raising their price. The answer was to offer them in the famous San Mai III steel. Made in Japan according to Cold Steel's strict standards since the mid 1980's, San Mai III has proven unsurpassed in strength, toughness, sharpness and ease of re-sharpening. Over the years, other "super steels" have come and gone but San Mai III remains as the most proven high performance stainless steel in the world. If you want a combat knife you can bet your life on, and reasonably priced, check out our Battle Ready series as they have the knife for you.
