SLYCUMA: CUMA Lone Survivor
SLYSTEEL Knives
 
SLYSTEEL and Johnny Tsai have collaborated to create a bushcraft knife to satisfy the needs of the most demanding, modern survivalist. The CUMA Lone Survivor by SLYSTEEL, designed by Sijo Waysun "Johnny" Tsai, and manufactured by TOPS Knives in the USA and combines the elements of two highly successful Johnny Tsai designs – the TOPS Knives CUMA Takri and the Combat Ready Battle Cleaver.

The CUMA Lone Survivor is manufactured from 3/16" thick 1095 high-carbon alloy steel with a Rockwell hardness of 58. The 15" overall length features a substantial traditional Kukri-style blade and a full tang handle. The handle is fitted with brown linen Micarta grip scales that are contoured for comfort and feature right and left-hand spindle divots. The pommel has dual integral holes large enough for almost any kind of lanyard.

The 8.5" blade is 3.5" wide at the deepest point of the kukri belly. The blade is finished with a black epoxy powder coat for corrosion resistance. The deep guard at the front of the handle is contoured to prevent developing a hot spot during prolonged use as a machete or saw. With the users hands grasping the curved spines at the tip of the kukri blade and the handle tang, the shallow belly of the blade is centered creating an effective draw knife. Placing the guard between the index and middle fingers in a choked position allows fine control of the blade while feathering stock for kindling.

A bottle opener is strategically located forward of the thumb contour on the handle indicating the start of the saw back. The saw back is 3 inches of deeply sharpened teeth that are alternately staggered from side to side effectively removing sawn material, which prevents blade overheating. Included with the purchase of each CUMA Lone Survivor knife is a ballistic nylon sheath. This sheath is a departure from typical nylon sheaths because of its innovative use of MOLLE straps on the front instead of the usual accessory pocket. By incorporating MOLLE on the front of the sheath you regain valuable MOLLE real estate otherwise lost by attaching a large blade to your gear or chest rig. Additionally, when using the sheath with a shoulder strap you can accessorize the front with MOLLE components of your choice to create a mini emergency kit. Like all SLYSTEEL knives, the CUMA Lone Survivor is individually serialized and is backed by a full lifetime warranty.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Nylon Sheath
Nylon Sheath
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
Micarta Handles
