Chris designed the Chris Caine Survival Tool for both the professional or serious survival enthusiast. The knife has an extremely strong construction with the capability to carry out tough arduous tasks such as cutting mature trees of both soft and hard wood. This survival tool can be used to build shelters, reflectors, rafts, and is capable of clearing landing zones if necessary in remote wilderness or jungle. It has the finesse to prepare wood for kindling, but can split logs with ease, and can be used to construct traps and prepare wild food, all whilst keeping an excellent edge. The tool has undergone extensive testing, both by Chris and by independent survival experts in the Canadian wilderness, deserts of America, South Africa and Borneo jungle.
Each Chris Caine Survival Tool starts out being laser cut from steel that is specified by us so that we are certain it will perform the duty it has been designed for. The heat treatment of the steel also plays a crucial part in our manufacturing process to deliver a blade that will not easily break, but will hold a keen edge.
The blade is made from 3/16" (5 mm), 75 Carbon Steel and is hardened to 52-54 Rockwell. It has a full tang and the blade has a shallow convex grind which allows for a more durable edge, ease of sharpening and protects the cutting edge when using the survival tool for heavy work. Yet at just over 2.65 oz. (750 g), it's light enough to be worn on your belt.
When chopping with this tool the fingers are kept well away from the material being hit thanks to the deep curve in the cutting edge. The back of the blade has a rounded off section so when hitting this tool with another cutting of wood there is less likelihood of damaging anything. The handle has been designed with three main grips, meaning that power and control can be altered depending on the job in hand. Further back along the blade the spine has been left with a crisp square edge for scraping wood in order to obtain a very fine fibrous layer that will easily take a spark for starting a fire.
The standard Chris Caine Survival Tool comes with a satin blade, polished Linen Micarta scales and a Cordura safety sheath that not only protects the knife but keeps it secure and ensures that when the knife is drawn the hands are well away from the cutting edge. The sheath is fully articulated so that no matter whether you are walking, running, sitting or kneeling it will always hang by your side in comfort.
To maintain this knife at it's best, the blade should be dried after use and lightly oiled before being stored for any period of time.
