DPx Gear Limited Edition Raven Survival Knife

Just In! The red hot DPx Gear Limited Edition Raven Survival Knife features a 6 Inch Sleipner Steel Blade with White Bone Handles.

Adventurer Robert Young Pelton's (author of the New York Times bestsellers "The World's Most Dangerous Places" and "Licensed to Kill: Hired guns in the War on Terror") upcoming novel "Raven" is the long-awaited story of a disastrous canoe trip and a boy who learns to survive in the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.

A beautifully engraved knife with the crest of the Raven is the center point of this epic book based on the events, places and characters from Pelton's life, work and adventures in the Pacific wilderness.

This knife is a 6" Sleipner tool steel, PVD-coated, laser-engraved fixed blade with bone Micarta scales and is limited to 250 individually numbered pieces. It is manufactured in Italy from 60HRC tool steel and features a pry bar and wire stripper. The Raven comes with a deluxe Italian leather sheath and is beautifully gift boxed and will be featured on the back cover of the December 2012 issue of Blade Magazine (on newstands 9/11/12).

About Sleipner Steel: Sleipner steel is a chromium-vanadium-molybdenum alloy (7% Cr, 0.5% V, 2.5% Mo) much like D2 steel and characterized by its edge retention, ease of sharpening, and resistance to wear and chipping. The Sleipner steel also has excellent "tooth" for repetitive, fine cutting.
