A good survival knife should be the first item on your gear list every time you hit the great outdoors. And while we’ve featured a lot of fine blades here at Men’s Gear in the past, we feel that the Griffin Skeleton Knife ($290,00) deserves to be noticed.
Crafted form premium Bohler M390 steel, which is precision cut using a water jet, ground, and then finished to the highest standards, the Griffin is a perfect combination of form and function. This versatile, sleek looking skeleton style knife is capable of any tasks you can throw at it, boasting key features like Strikeback ferro rod striker on the spine for staring fires and a combination of pry tip and cat’s paw nail puller for opening paint cans, breaking glass or shucking oysters. A full-length jimping offers excellent grip, and 5 drilled out holes in the handle ensure a reduction of weight, while retaining strength of the 4-inch blade. Made in the ol’ USA by Prometheus Design Werx, the Griffin Skeleton Knife comes with a Tek-Lok Kydex sheath, and it could be your best friend in the wilderness.
