SR1, Folding Survival & Rescue Knife with CPM-S35VN steel blade
The Cold Steel SRK (Survival Rescue Knife) has been a proud flagship blade in Cold Steel’s line-up for over 25 years. The knife of choice for many U.S.-Military members, it remains the standard issue fixed blade of the Navy SEALS during BUDS training (Basic Underwater Demolition training) to this day.
It’s little wonder then that when Cold Steel tasked custom knife maker Andrew Demko with developing a new high-end tactical folding knife for military application, he took inspiration from the legendary SRK!
The SR1 features Andrew’s signature minimalist style, with no unnecessary flourishes or embellishments, just pure functional, no-nonsense, practical design. The SR1’s heavy-duty blade is made to be put to work. Crafted from 5 mm thick American CPM-S35VN premium powdered steel, it’s a heavy-duty workhorse designed for the harshest and most unforgiving environments.
A good blade needs a good handle, so the SR1’s handle is made from premium American G-10 with heat-treated nested steel liners. It features an integrated lanyard hole and coarse-textured surface for a secure grip even in cold, wet conditions, and is expertly contoured to allow for a comfortable and safe grip even while wearing heavy gloves.
For added reliability and peace of mind, the SR1 is equipped with Cold Steel’s world-famous Tri-Ad® locking mechanism – proven time and time again to weather even the worst abuse, with unparalleled shock and impact resistance – making this knife the ideal choice for a survival rescue blade intended for today’s warrior elite!
An exceptional American super steel, CPM-S35VN is not only very tough and durable but it will take a fine razor-sharp edge that will last a long time. An incredibly fine-grained powdered steel with a uniform microstructure, it offers very consistent performance. Durable, reliable, highly corrosion-resistant and tough even when honed to a very fine edge, it is a good, well-rounded steel choice for high-end superior quality custom knives and tools.
