StatGear Surviv-All Fixed-Blade Bowie Knife with Sheath, Firestarter, Sharpener & Cord Cutter for Hunting Camping Outdoors Hiking EDC Review
From my very first glance at the StatGear Surviv-All Survival Knife, it became evident that it was no ordinary knife. It’s an intriguing hybrid of craftsmanship and innovation that could easily become a mainstay for those who love the outdoors. Could this be the ultimate survival knife? So, let’s embark on this journey of slicing into the depths of this product’s offerings.
Right out of the box, the first thing that struck me was the rubber textured handle. Gripped to perfection, it contours nicely to the palm – a feature that makes it difficult for the handle to slip, even with the most slippery hands. The full-tang blade carved out of high carbon 440 stainless steel, further solidified the notion that this knife is built for heavy-duty tasks as the full tang offers robust and durable performance. However, what sets this knife apart is the stainless steel pommel, unusual yet purposeful, adding an extra layer of safety.
The knife fully justified its stature when tested in the toughest terrains. It met every challenge with finesse, from slicing small branches for a firewood collection or skillfully maneuvering it to skin a hunted game. Each task only solidified my trust in its performance. But here’s a thought to ponder – isn’t a survival knife only as good as its sharpness? That’s exactly why the knife’s accompanying sheath is equipped with an integrated sharpener stone, ensuring your blade stays sharp, ready for action.
This is the stage where the Surviv-All Survival Knife truly outperformed. The sheath of the knife, I would dare say, is as valuable as the knife itself. The built-in fire starter rod and cord cutter are well thought out. They execute their functions smoothly and are a sure aid in any survival situation.
- Fire Starter: It’s easy to strike and produces a consistent spark, meaning fire establishing is made stress-free.
- Cord Cutter: This comes handy for minor cuts, eliminating the need to unsheathe your knife every time.
In theory, this knife is only 9.5 inches long with a blade of just 4.25 inches and weighs a compact 7.5 ounces. But its functionality speaks volumes beyond this – a fact that I witnessed throughout my usage. The knife fits snugly into the sheath, secured by the Para-Secure paracord handle strap – a feature that assures me that the knife won’t inadvertently unsheath. Holding it feels solid, balanced, and purpose-made. Fitting the sheath onto the belt is uncomplicated, and the presence of these survival accessories built-in provides a sense of comfort during outdoor adventures.
However, life is not without its faults, and the same can be said for the Surviv-All Survival Knife. The knife’s weight tends to tilt slightly heavy, weighing 13 ounces within the sheath. This could be a downside for those who prefer lighter alternatives.
From this analysis, you can see that the Surviv-All Survival Knife is more than just a knife. It serves as a versatile tool, well-equipped for outdoor endeavors and survival situations. Moreover, it places an emphasis on safety with its non-slip, rubber-textured handle and steel pommel proving useful for urgent scenarios.
In the face of a few ounces of extra weight, does the amalgamation of practical utility, toughness, and convenience not win over? For me, the answer is a resounding yes! It’s an outdoorsman’s treasure – well-crafted, packed with features and honed with attention to user needs. The Surviv-All Survival Knife is a reliable companion that will weather the test of your adventures with you.
