Solo Scientific Solar Knife Fixed 3.75" 420HC Plain Drop Point Blade, Aluminum Handles, Leather Sheath - SK2S
SOSSK2S: Solar Knife
The patent pending Solar Knife by Solo Scientific is a revolutionary tool that can be used as a traditional knife to cut or chop and can also be used to start your campfire using solar energy!
The Solar Knife has very innovative, ergonomic handle scales, that not only serve to hold the knife in one's hands, but one side of the handle is also a very shallow parabolic reflective surface that is able to focus the sun's energy to a singular point above the knife to ignite combustible materials and start your campfire.
To start a campfire with your Solar Knife, simply aim the handle of the knife towards the sun and position the fire starting tinder at the singular focus of the parabolic handle. To aid with positioning of the tinder, the Solar Knife itself is also a blueprint that allows the user to fashion a precise tinder holder arm using any branch or twig that mounts quickly into an angled receptacle, also machined into the Solar Knife. Once in position, the end of the twig is split and wild tinder is wedged into place at the end of the twig. This firmly holds wild tinder at the exact focus of the parabolic handle above the knife. This maximizes efficiency without the need to carry extra parts. Talk about bridging man with nature.
Unlike optical magnifying glasses, the parabolic reflector has no spherical aberration and is highly efficient focusing every photon to a singular point is space igniting combustible materials in seconds. This works great with char cloth and wild tinder, such as dry leaves.
The Solar Knife is constructed using high quality materials. The full-tang blade is made from 420HC high carbon stainless steel that has been fully hardened to give both great edge holding and sharpening capability. The handle scales are made from lightweight aircraft aluminum and are coated to prevent oxidation (may also include sacrificial anodes).
