The Original Dog Tag Knife

Compact Blade for Survival or Self-Defense

The Dog Tag Survival Knife is a multi-functional tool perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. You can attach the Dog Tag Survival Knife to a handle by lashing the blade through the two holes. A simple shoelace and a stick transforms into a useful tool without carrying cumbersome equipment. Slide the blade out of the protective case & reverse so the notch lines up with the notch in the case. The friction caused by rubbing the steel blade with the ferrocerium rod creates sparks to start a fire.

The reflective stainless steel surface of the Dog Tag Survival Knife can be used to signal rescue personnel. The sight hole in the center of the blade gives you control in directing the reflected light to alert rescuers to your position should an emergency arise. The incredibly strong Heat-Treated 440C Stainless Steel Blade can handle the rigors of the outdoors. Easy to wear on a 27" chain, it's a favorite of hikers and climbers. The inconspicuous dog tag design also makes the Dog Tag Survival Knife a great self-defense tool. Finally, an easy-to-read button compass keeps you on course.

4-in-1 kit includes rescue mirror, knife, fire starter, and compass! Item is engravable.

Don't bother
I couldn't get sparks on the ferrocerium rod using the blade as described in the documentation but I could using my Spyderco Delica. The compass doesn't attach to anything, rather it is a loose, small object easily lost. I am not convinced the blade is reflective enough to be of any use.

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
The blade is dull and needs sharpened before use. Would be more useful if you could incorporate the fire starter and compass on the necklace some how so you don't loose them.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Finish
a bit misleading..
Basically I wanted a way to carry all the items as one package...the only item you can carry around your neck is the blade...the fire starter & compass would have to be secured somewhere else on your person ( " 4 in 1" a bit misleading) The blade is sharp and the sheath feels/ seems sturdy. The retention chain seems sturdy enough but it can easily be replaced. The manufacturer could have built a notch or something similar that would allow the fire starter and compass to be carried in the sheath, with the blade, on the same one package...I'm pretty sure I will misplace one of the items...
