Handle the SLYSTEEL Survival Kukri
The latest survival tool from SLYSTEEL will be there for you to check out and handle for yourself (pricing and availability to be determined). The SLYSTEEL Survival Kukri incorporates traditional kukri designs from Nepal with modern features survivalists have come to expect. It can do the heavy lifting when chopping and splitting but also lends itself well to finer tasks because of the comfort, design and versatility of the precision machined handle.
Meet the Founders of SLYSTEEL
All SLYSTEEL knives are designed by father and son duo, Oliver and Christopher Hannan. In late 2013, Oliver designed two unique knives that feature a full-tang split finger handguard. Those designs were later named the Shark Tooth Tactical and Shark Tooth Hunter and were featured at the January 2014 SHOT Show and were named Editor’s Choice, The Best of SHOT by Knives Illustrated Magazine. Since then, Oliver has designed the Final Option Blade and Skeletek Dagger.
Christopher, an avid backpacker, outdoorsman, and former scout leader designed the Skeletek Bushcraft as a project knife for an Idaho scout troop. The knife follows the same design principles as other SLYSTEEL knives such as the split finger grip, finger choil, soft jimping, and comfortable handle. The knife has been used by survivalist Sarah Danser on Discovery Channel’s 40-day survival challenge Naked and Afraid XL: ALL-STARS.
