In survival situations, having a large fixed blade survival knife makes great sense, especially one specifically designed for a variety of cutting responsibilities.
The Ken Onion designed Redemption™ wields a hefty, "Onion style" drop-point blade shape with a generous recurve edge to maximize cutting efficiencies across its full length. Additionally, the robust three-quarter tang blade, and its flat grind, excels in chopping and slashing tasks.
The G10 handle is purposefully contoured with swells, curves and grooves to fill your grip, for a solid, secure hold no matter what the task or environment. In spite of its size, the Redemption™ offers a well balanced, controllable feel, which is important when you may end up in any extreme environment. Originally envisioned as a jungle knife, the Redemption™ can be your one "go to" knife that is a versatile, useful tool, for situations you may find yourself in when traveling backcountry and exotic ecosystems.
The sheath is constructed of high-strength nylon with a reversible formed thermal plastic insert to make carry safe and comfortable. The leg strap is ideal for secure fit.
If your world has the potential for big problems, redeem yourself with a survival knife that's built to take it on.
Excellent rendition of a hybrid kukri/ bowie.
I like the way the grip design obviates the need for a hilt.
The sheath could use a stiffener in the retention strap and, because it is an inwardly curve blade, it should also hold a sharpening rod rather than stone.

Having held the original custom Malice from Ken, this CRKT production knife is a faithful representation of the design, only a package that can be used and dare I say, abused. Really great execution from CRKT on Ken's design.
