White River Knife & Tool, Coopersville, MI, March 2018 – New Firecraft 3.5 small utility survival knives are finally out for 2018. Announced at this year’s SHOT Show, this small, tough and ultra-handy survival knife has the same blade profile as White River’s incredibly popular Firecraft series of full-size survival knives – and even has the same notch for striking the included ferro rod.
The 3.5 Firecraft series knives can be mounted in multiple configurations on Mollie gear, backpacks, belt-worn, or even neck-lanyard-worn in its specialized Kydex® sheath.
Firecraft 3.5 Pro with G-10 handle
Two models are available: 3.5 Pro with black or orange G-10 handle or 3.5 with a paracord-wrapped handle. The pommel loop makes for easy removal of the knife from its sheath in any position using just one finger, even if gloved. A generous finger cutout allows a secure grip for hard cutting chores.
Combination Mounting: The 3.5 sheath is designed to be attached to the 7-inch Firecraft survival knife sheath with the screws from its own belt loop. This attachment creates a multi-knife piggy back kit; the 7-inch for hard and heavy cutting, the 3.5 for light and more delicate work.
The Factory will mount the 3.5 or 3.5 Pro on the 7-inch Firecraft survival knife sheath (Kydex sheath only) when purchased as a package. Those already owning the 7-inch Firecraft knives can order a 3.5 series knife and retro-mount it to their existing Kydex sheath if they wish. And, of course it can be purchased separately for use as an excellent, lightweight, low-profile, stand-alone survival knife.
