We are full speed with our gear reviews for our backpacking / camping series. You should always have a good fixed blade knife with you on the trail or at the campsite. For whatever comes your way; it is better to have it and not need it rather than the opposite. With many knife companies out there, we decided to give a product from CRKT a test drive out in the field.
We are currently putting the CRKT Redemption through the tests. I don’t want to say too much as it will spoil anything, but just stay tuned as the review will be coming out very soon. In the meantime, get out there and hit the trails.
In survival situations, having a large fixed blade survival knife makes great sense, especially one specifically designed for a variety of cutting responsibilities.
The Ken Onion designed Redemption™ wields a hefty, “Onion style” drop-point blade shape with a generous recurve edge to maximize cutting efficiencies across its full length. Additionally, the robust three-quarter tang blade, and its flat grind, excels in chopping and slashing tasks.
The G10 handle is purposefully contoured with swells, curves and grooves to fill your grip, for a solid, secure hold no matter what the task or environment. In spite of its size, the Redemption™ offers a well balanced, controllable feel, which is important when you may end up in any extreme environment. Originally envisioned as a jungle knife, the Redemption™ can be your one “go to” knife that is a versatile, useful tool, for situations you may find yourself in when traveling backcountry and exotic ecosystems.
The sheath is constructed of high-strength nylon with a reversible formed thermal plastic insert to make carry safe and comfortable. The leg strap is ideal for secure fit.
If your world has the potential for big problems, redeem yourself with a survival knife that’s built to take it on.
