Arguably a knife is the most important tool you can have in the outdoors. Some people may recognize the knife in our kit as a $10 dollar piece of Chinese crap found in places like Amazon, and they would be correct. That is indeed what our knife starts out as, however we have made some improvements.
Our kit knives begin their lives as knife shaped objects from China that come dull as a stump with a blocky rectangular handle wrapped in cheap nylon string housed in a sheath that will allow the knife shaped object to fall right out. However, they are full tang, stainless steel and provide a good starting point for modification.
For our kits we wanted a knife that was durable, dependable, not extremely expensive and would fit into a Nalgene bottle. While a Mora would be great, it is just too long to fit in the bottle. A quality cheap knife is hard to find and no-one wants to keep an expensive knife in a kit they hope to never use. So with limited choices we have modified these knives into something we personally would be comfortable with should we ever have to use it. Here’s what we do:
Starting with a full tang, stainless steel knife shaped object from China we skeletonize the handle into a comfortable, lightweight, ergonomic handle with a waterjet cutter. We beadblast all the black paint off of the knife leaving it with a smooth surface. The handle is then wrapped with 7 strand mil spec Paracord. The cutting edge is then re-profiled and sharpened to a fine cutting edge giving us an effective cutting tool. We also remove the crummy Velcro from the sheath, resize the thumb break and add a metal snap for better knife retention.
Once our modifications are complete we have a solid, full tang stainless knife with a comfortable handle and useful edge that will fit into the kit. And you don’t feel bad about locking away an expensive knife you may never get to use.
