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.
