The Kid

The "Kid" CSAR double edged knife with hookblade, obverse side view in 440C high chromium stianless steel blade, hand-engraved 304 stainless steel bolsters, brecciated jasper gemstone handle, locking kydex, aluminum, stainless steel sheath
The "Kid" Tactical, CSAR, Hook Blade Knife

The Kid was originally designed as a SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) Instructor's knife, with direct input from the SERE professional. This particular model has a double-edged hollow ground blade with a good length of serrations on the top edge for tough ripping needs, and an aggressive point with plenty of spine strength. The steel is high chromium, high carbon 440C for the greatest corrosion resistance, and is mirror polished throughout. The knife is bolstered with hand-engraved 304 high nickel, high chromium austenitic stainless steel bolsters, mounted with 18-8 stainless steel machine screws. They are dovetailed and frame a pair of hard, tough, and polished red Brecciated Jasper gemstone handle scales, with white, red, and clear areas of agate and crystal and bits of metallic gray hematite.

The most unique feature of this knife is the handle mounted hook blade. The handle is only about 3 1/2 inches long, (9 cm), but houses a specialized hook blade that operates on a tongue and groove assembly, locking open and locking closed. The hook blade is blunt on the point, and razor keen in the concave grind, and was originally designed for CSAR operations. The hook blade can be extended and used for several tasks like removing a wetsuit from an injured victim without penetrating the skin and severing cord or line in wet environments with one hand. All the internal components are stainless steel including the hardened lock bar and the spring.

The sheath for this knife is one of my positively locking stainless steel, kydex, and high strength corrosion resistant aluminum models. This is a great working tool for CSAR and utility operations.
