S.A.F.E. System II

$550.00

The S.A.F.E. System II comes standard with the knife, sheath, and ferro rod. The knife comes standard in CPM 154 stainless steel. Starting price is $550, and options can be added below. When purchasing the pouch on the sheath, it includes an empty “Altoids” type tin. PSK knife is sold separately. Blasted, satin, or two-tone finish, and green or black cord; black or “weathered brown” sheath.

The “Kodiak Edition” combines several of these options and saves you some money, or the options can be added separately. Kodiak Edition adds sawteeth, pouch on sheath, PSK knife, and steel plated buttcap. Also comes standard with two-tone finish. Green or black cord, and black or “weathered brown” sheath.

Sawteeth: Add $40
Pouch on Sheath: Add $40 (includes empty tin)
Basic Survival Kit: Add $40 (includes button compass in leather pouch, small flashlight, and tinder cord)
Steel Plated Buttcap: $40
PSK Knife: Add $75 (fits behind pouch on sheath)
Kodiak Edition Option: Add $125

The “micarta” option adds about 1/16″ to the diameter of the 1″ handle tube, but allows me to give the handle an egg shape, for better indexing and helps to absorb shock, heat/cold, and serves as a more comfortable handle if the cord wrap is removed for emergency use. When interested in the micarta option, contact me.

When adding the “Basic Survival Kit,” it includes the compass in the custom leather sheath w/lanyard, flashlight, and tinder cord. The Basic Survival Kit is available only when ordered with the pouch on the sheath, and cannot be purchased separately.

Description

The S.A.F.E. System II(Survival Adventure Field and Exploration) is a slightly larger version of the orginal S.A.F.E. knife. It has a larger and wider blade and a little longer handle, all designed to provide a little more capability while still being a very handy size.

It includes the hollow handle knife, it utilizes the same threaded buttcap as a handle for the ferrocerium rod, to make it easier to hold while striking, and a leather sheath.

The SAFE knife utilizes the same construction method as on my larger hollow handle knives, which I have demonstrated the strength of by doing chin-ups on the handle. But I have scaled this knife down to make it a better performer for finer work. It is made out of 3/16” stock, to make it a better slicer and shave weight. It also features a full flat grind, for aggressive cutting ability.

It also features an asymmetrical guard. This provides for safety during hard use, but also allows the thumb to be placed on the spine for detailed work. The spine area is squared for striking the ferro rod.

I used a retention strap based on shock cord, like on my larger knives, so that when you unfasten it from the stud, it flies back out of the way. I much prefer that to keeper straps that go across the guard, and clutter up the front of the sheath, and can get cut when drawing the knife. This way is also easy to modify, if the user wants to remove it, and put on a simple snap strap across the handle. The belt loop also features a “Lift the Dot” snap, for security, so that the belt loop can be opened and the knife put on or taken off without opening up your belt.

Blade Steel: CPM 154 only

Blade Length: 6”

Handle: Approx. 4 3/4” incl. buttcap

Blade Thickness: 3/16”
