You've had it on the checklist forever, a proper knife to get you through all the possible problems an alien invasion or a zombie apocalypse would put in front of you. While those things may not be an issue in the near future, it might not be a bad idea to have some sort of amazing cutting tool in your arsenal. Trust us, if your caveman ancestors knew you were tooling around the planet without a decent blade, they'd probably be pretty disappointed in you.
Ok, so it might not be apocalyptic enough to warrant a big knife purchase, but a great knife will definitely prove to be an invaluable asset. Prometheus Design Werx's Griffin Skeleton Knife is no mere blade, it is a precision made tool that is jet cut from high-grade Bohler M390 steel that will provide a lifetime of usage. It also features a combo pry tip and cat paw nail puller that works great for everything from cracking a paint can open or even shucking an oyster.
The holes in the handle bring down the weight of the knife and the full length jimping around the handle gives you optimum grip in any situation. They've also added a dedicated area for ferrocerium rods with their proprietary "Strikeback" feature on the spine so you won't have to worry about dulling your edges.
The Griffin is available for $289 at PrometheusDesignWerx.com.
