Cold Steel SRK

SRK stands for Survival Rescue Knife, and that's exactly what Cold Steel has made when they designed the SRK. Survival knives must to have the ability to withstand extreme hardship and abuse. With this in mind Cold Steel made the SRK. The Cold Steel SRK is heralded by all as one of the worlds toughest knives. The blade on the SRK has a coating of Teflon giving the AUS8A steel a protection from the elements. The tip of a knife is usually the most vulnerable part, not so with the SRK, it has an extremely tough point and the Cold Steel product testing team has taken the SRK and pounded it through a petrol barrel, and no damage was taken to the point, there is a lot of cutting power behind this knife. The Cold Steel SRK has a blade thickness of 3/16ths of an inch thick. The handle on the SRK has a single finger handle guard with a checkered Kraton slip proof grip. The only flaw I can think of is weight, it's a pretty heavy knife, but that's a small concession for what it is.
