The Naked and "NOT" Afraid
As owner and knife maker at Extreme Instinct I went right to the shop the second Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid called me to do the show. Knowing I would be dropped off anyplace in the world with only one item I knew I had to make the ultimate knife. This one knife was fired in the forge of years of tested survival knowledge.
Features 1/4" thick 1095 High Carbon, CPM 3V super steel or Nitro V steel to give the weight needed to tackle big jobs. It measures 16" overall, 10" blade length with a sturdy brush hook for cutting vines and small brush. The eye hole is set up to mill out arrows, atlatl darts or trigger sticks. A spindle socket on one side for friction fire. The handle scales come off to allow you to lash the knife to a spear or long stick to reach hard to get fruit. The back and bottom of the handle are designed to flint-knapp and break open nuts. The edge is a convex grind to stay sharp through even the toughest chores. Made with or without a saw back for detail work. I have special built these knives and have now shipped them worldwide to take on the toughest places on the planet. After personal use on more than 176 days of hard everyday survival on 6 seasons of Naked and Afraid I can attest this knife truly dominates from the jungles of Thailand and the Amazon to the thorns of Africa, the unforgiving salt water of the Bahamas and the swamps of the Louisiana bayou in the Atchafalaya Basin for 60 days.
Each knife is built custom and can be made with different handle materials as well as custom Cerakote or acid washed finishes upon request. NOTE: the knives featured are examples of what we can build you.
All knives come with a Kydex sheath and adjustable belt clip that can be worn right, left, vertical or horizontal carry. Please specify in your order if you have any preferred sheath colors or camo and if you need right or left handed carry.
**Please allow a minimum of 60 days for buildout**
