Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Survival Edge is a light duty bushcrafting design excellent for any utility task performed around the camp site. If you’re familiar with Mora of Sweden Knives, the Survival Edge is a very similar design with many more capabilities. The Secure-Ex sheath clips easily onto your belt and comes attached with a Ferrocerium fire steel to match the handle color. The 5″ mirror polished blade is made from German 4116 Stainless Steel which, according to Cold Steel, performs better than 420 and 440 series steels while providing improved corrosion resistance. What sets the Survival Edge apart is the extremely rigid, hollow handle design. With an internal length of three inches and diameter of one inch, there’s ample storage space for any small fishing, safety, or survival items. With a reasonably ergonomic handle, dual finger guard, and rubber O-rings for a secure grip, the Survival Edge is one useful tool.
Survival Edge

Cold Steel has been determined to bring an economical hollow handle survival knife to market for years. Most knives of this kind (that are currently available) have proven, in our own tests, to be too weak and fragile to be of any real use—and expensive too! In short, we thought we could do better.

Many years of experience with super-tough plastics and injection molding have given Cold Steel an edge over our competition's clumsy offerings. Our Survival Edge is butterfly light and strong as an ox and features a German 4116 Stainless Steel blade that is a full 1" wide and 5" long and terminates in a strong clip point that's versatile enough to meet the demands of ANY survival situation.

The handle is made from the highest-grade Polypropylene available, and has an integral double quillon guard that serves to protect the fingers as well as making it possible to lash the handle to a stick to make an improvised spear. The surface is carefully textured and encircled by 5 rubber "O" rings to improve traction when your hands are wet or slippery and to resist rolling or turning during intense use. Plus, a twist of the waterproof cap at the hollow handle's end reveals a large expanse that will accept a variety of survival aids or tinder. Cold Steel has included a basic survival kit inside the handle to get you started.

The Secure-Ex sheath is designed to fit on most belts or be slung on a lanyard around one's neck. It's light, tough, and weatherproof. Additionally, it includes a Ferrocerium fire steel. A swift strike using the blade's spine will produce a shower of white-hot sparks and start a campfire roaring in no time at all.

Not bad...
Seems pretty decent for the price. While I haven't had a chance to really put this blade to the test, it's definitely sharp right from the box. Feels very light in the hand. Be interesting to see how this will work in the field. Have one for My commuter vehicle and My truck and one for camping/GP and 1 for 72 hr bag.

Great price-had to flat grind spine to get any sparks from fire steel?
Can’t believe a great company like l “Cold Steel” is sending out survival knives advertised to be used with a fire steel striker with a rounded blade spine that can’t even make a spark. You need to grind your own blade for it to work. It will work if you do.
