Meet the SURVIVE! Pikal. Our iteration of this reverse grip knife features excellent ergonomics, a compact yet highly functional design, and premium materials. Wanting to set our Pikal apart from the crowd as well as stay true to our roots, we really put an emphasis on in hand retention and stabbing/ripping cutting performance for this very purpose driven design. The attractive radius machined spine provides additional security, giving you better axial control over the knife, while being subtle enough to not create hot spots. The pommel is slightly but unobtrusively exposed and features jimping, for positive indexing in fast moving situations. Whether you conceal carry and want a lightweight back up option that won't jam or you just value being prepared for any eventuality, look no further. You'll find our Pikal to be devastatingly effective, no matter what situation you find yourself in. Our Pikal has a fully sharpenable swedge and comes complete with a sheath optimized for IWB carry.

A bit about the steel used in SURVIVE! Knives:
CPM-3V is a high alloyed tool steel, made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, that has a very high impact toughness and excellent edge holding. Being made with the CPM process, this steel is also very resistant to lateral stress (flex) breakage, making it a perfect choice for a high performance, hard use knife. CPM-3V is not a stainless alloy and can stain if not cared for. Check out the CPM-3V Data Sheet.
CPM MagnaCut is an innovative new stainless steel from Crucible. It has an excellent combination of toughness and wear resistance, along with improved corrosion resistance. Here is the CPM MagnaCut Data Sheet.
