The Cold Steel SRK is a very solid and robust fixed knife. SRK stands for Search and Rescue knife. As such this decent survival knife will never let you down.
The blade is made from CPM 3CV-steel. A tool steel that is known for its exceptional strength. As such it won't break and will retain its sharpness well. You do, however, need to be careful with moisture and acids: CPM 3V is not completely stainless. So clean it after use and occasionally add a drop of oil to keep this knife in great shape.
The 5 mm blade is slightly thick. However, because it has a thin grind it is amazing to work with. It is a healthy balance between cutting properties and solidity. The Kray-Ex handle offers a lot of grip, even in wet circumstances. The solid Secure-Ex holster is enhanced with a press stud to make sure you don't lose the knife.
