CRKT HoodWork Survival Knife (3500) & HCK1 Hood Camp Knife (3510)
The CRKT 3500 Hoodwork Survival knife and the 3510 HCK1 Hood Camp Knife are two new 2014 mid-year knife releases from Columbia River Knife & Tool Co. Both of the Survival knife and the Camp Knife were designed by survival expert, Karen Hood and precision manufactured by CRKT.
The full-tang blades are made from a solid billet of field tough 1095 high carbon steel. The blades have been sandblasted with a black over wash and then sealed with a clear Cerakote blade coating for rust resistance, non-reflectivity and durability in harsh environments.
The 3500 Hoodwork has aggressive Veff Serrations while the 3510 HCK1 has a PlainEdge Santuko style blade.
The G10 handles are comfortable and confidence inspiring in hand. The handle scales are removable to lighten the load and they can be wrapped with paracord and then you can have another item in your survival kit. The holes in the handle of the 3500 Hood Work are for both weight reduction and straightening arrows.
An orange 550 paracord lanyard will keep your knife from falling in the brink during use and makes it easy to spot when laid down. When your in a survival situation you definitely don't want your knife to slip out of your hand.
The custom leather sheath supplied with the knives is made from vegetable tanned leather that will not corrode the blade.
The sheath is hand oiled for durability and beauty and then lock stitched with heavy-weight nylon thread. Both sheath will fit belt widths upto 2.5 inches wide and include a small 1"x3"pouch for a firerod, sharpener or other survival goodies.
If your hiking, hunting, backpacking or camping these knives will perform the duties required and ask for more. Another nice thing we like is that both of these knives are made in the USA. Checkout both of these hot new knives at www.OsoGrandeKnives.com.
