USAF Survival Knife

SKU: BO155

The Böker USAF Survival Knife is a reissue of extremely rare standard issue knife. In the late 1940's, General Curtis LeMay, the head of the Strategic Air Command (SAC), authorized the creation of a survival kit for the crews of the long-range bombers. Requirements were to be an effective tool for survival in the wild, with the ability to perform a number of functions to include field dressing and cleaning fish. The initial production of 300 pieces for evaluation resulted in immediate approval and the Böker fixed blade became the official survival knife of the U.S. Air Force.  Has a SK5 carbon steel blade, mirror finished. The handle is crafted of leather, with aluminum and brass spacers and pommel, complete with leather sheath. 8.375” overall, 4.5” blade, 3.6 oz
