Drop Forged Survivalist
Cold Steel® Monolithic Axe and Tool® Fixed Blades
Cold Steel® President Lynn C. Thompson has become enamored with the simple functionality of drop-forged knives. Their solid one-piece construction allows for new levels of strength and durability, and their bare-bones ruggedness has an undeniable appeal to Lynn, who's been an avid survivalist, hunter and outdoorsman. These incredibly tough and hard-wearing blades have no leather or wood handle to crack, rot or break, and no loose parts to break, damage or lose in the field. They are easy to maintain and clean, and inexpensive enough that you can afford a spare to add to your hunting pack or bug-out-bag.
Cold Steel®'s Monolithic fixed blades are drop-forged (not cheaply cast!) from 52100 high carbon steel. Their solid steel bodies are expertly heat-treated from the tip of their sharp blades to the butt of their stout handles. Furthermore, each one is ergonomically contoured with a deep trough in the handle for a comfortable and secure grip. Easy to modify and simple to customize, they also make great 'project knives' for re-handling, filework, engraving or any other fun modification projects.
Drop Forged Survivalist
The Survivalist is the largest of Cold Steel®'s Monolithic Axe and Tool® knives. Its long, wide blade (inspired by Cold Steel®'s ever-popular Recon Scout) is designed for military application as well as hunting, survival and bushcraft. Its razor-sharp edge, steel guard, generous belly, thick spine and stout tip make it an excellent choice for almost any endeavor. Drop-forged from one solid piece of steel, the Survivalist is unbelievably durable, making it an excellent choice for tactical/military use, emergency preparedness and survival applications. The Survivalist comes with Cold Steel®'s versatile military-style Secure-Ex® sheath, giving you a whole host of comfortable and secure carry options in the field.
52100 High Carbon Steel
52100 high carbon is a hard-wearing steel which is an excellent choice for custom hunting and outdoor fixed blades. Often used by custom knife makers in forged blades that require toughness and wear resistance in unforgiving conditions.
