A Nutnfancy top pick for a deployment knife for combat-engaged soldiers, the SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) has a lot to offer the serious blade user. For one it's affordable. It's hard to find a quality stainless steel knife in this category (6 to 7 inch blade) and almost impossible to get it for around $60. By comparison the also-excellent amd similar Fallkniven A1 costs at least twice as much as an SRK. It is your affordable, quality alternative that should offer just as much capability. The SRK hasan impressively 3/16 thick spine that should excel in prying, chopping, cutting, wood splitting, and stabbing taskswithin its six inch limitations (spoken to in the video). The modified bowie clip blade is purposeful, avoiding nonsense design features that would detract from both its survival and combat usefulness (like sweeping curves meant more for Hollywood than the wilderness). Of course its just a 6 blade so that means it comes with some limitations and thats to be expected: it wont chop, hack, or cut as easily as a big ole survival blade like the CS Trailmaster. Thats just physics guys. But it sure is lighter: total carry weight is a mere 11 oz and that makes the SRK a top choice for soldiers and wilderness-bound NCs who need a strong fixed blade but not the knee-grinding loadout weight of a full sized blade. Its Kraton handle is outstanding, offering excellent purchase, shock absorption, and non-slip characteristics for your cutting tasks. And the whole package is topped off with another excellent waterproof ConcealEx (plastic) sheath that doesnt absorb water weight and is quick-attachable as well. Overall its a compact design that, for its size and weight, offers high levels of Survival Capability and Combat Efficiency (both Nutnfancy terms). And it will resist rust A LOT better than any 1095 steel blade and do so affordably. The Cold Steel SRK knife then remains a top choice for Nutnfancys recommendations for a carry-along, do everything combat blade. Nutnfancy Likeability Scale: 8 out of 10 (for compact survival blades)
