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 steel giving this knife the weight needed to tackle big jobs. Depending on handle material and steel thickness, this knife averages 1lb 10oz to 1lb 15oz (can be reduced in weight if desired). 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. An optional spindle socket on one side for friction fire. The various holes in the blade are designed to allow you to lash the knife to a spear or long stick to reach hard to get fruit or cut hard to reach items. 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. It comes standard with a flat backbone allows it to be used as a draw knife and added hand placement for small detail work. A sawback on the spine can added by specific request.
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 260 days of hard everyday primitive survival on 8 seasons of Naked and Afraid, Naked and Afraid: XL Legends and Last One Standing, 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.
That's why I guarantee this knife to be backed by our lifetime warranty.
