Coopersville, MI, – -(Ammoland.com)- The new White River Knife & Tool 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.
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.
