2017 CRKT® TSR™
New survival fixed blade knife doubles as an entire survival kit.
CRKT® is releasing the TSR™ (Terzuola Survival Rescue) survivalist’s fixed blade. Designed by Bob Terzuola of Albuquerque, New Mexico, its powerful blade is head turning, but the handle is a showstopper—it packs an entire survival kit. Even though a skilled survivalist could fashion just about everything they would need from woodsy resources, sometimes a magnesium edge, a reflective stainless steel plate, and paracord can make a Darwinian difference.
Bob Terzuola is an industry leader with impressive in-field experience—he served in the Peace Corps in Guatemala for years, then set up shop there and made the unruly, untamed jungles his stomping grounds. With a burly 4.4” drop point blade, and a strong satin finish, this knife is at your beck and call when Mother Nature rears her ugly head. To top it off, there’s a small hole bored into the base of the blade so that it might be attached to a wooden shaft and become a hunting spear if needed.
The stainless steel tang is hollow and the glass-reinforced nylon handles can be easily removed to reveal fishing line, fishing hooks, and dental floss, which is surprisingly useful and versatile when you find yourself in a backwoods pinch.
No space on the injection-molded sheath is wasted. It comes with extra paracord for wrapping, has a ceramic sharpening edge on one side, and the other boasts a magnesium edge to help start fires when the temperature drops. Lastly, one panel on the inside of the sheath has a reflective stainless steel plate for signaling aircraft or approaching parties when you need to get bailed out.
Bob Terzuola channeled years of in-field and design experience to come up with a design that doesn’t waste an inch—he succeeded with one that would surely make Rambo jealous. In his world and yours, survival of the fittest is the name of the game. When the stakes are high, you’ll want to keep the TSR™ close.
The TSR™ knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $89.99
