The stout, no-nonsense, U.S.-made Combat Search & Rescue Tool is designed for more than just cutting. The fixed-blade knife measures 10-inches overall with a 4 1/2-inch blade of 3/16-inch-thick 420HC stainless steel.
It has a full-tang construction, a pronounced choil and a symmetrically ground, modified Tanto point to withstand digging, prying and penetrating, and a hex driver in the pommel accepts a variety of optional Allen, Torx and screwdriver bits.
The CSAR-T comes with a MOLLE-compatible black nylon sheath with pouch and Buck’s Forever Warranty. Price: $150.
