The TSR™ (Terzuola Survival Rescue) fixed blade outdoor knife doesn’t just stop at that—its handle comes with a powerful secret…in the form of an entire survival kit. Even though a skilled survivalist could fashion just about everything they would need from woodsy resources, sometimes a magnesium edge, a reflective stainless steel plate, and paracord can make a Darwinian difference.
World-renowned knife-making pioneer Bob Terzuola designed his namesake knife in his shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He channeled years of experience serving in the Peace Corps in Guatemala and directing war damage surveys in Central American jungles to dream up the ultimate survival knife.
It’s hard to imagine a single knife that’s worthy of his famous name, but the Terzuola Survival Rescue™ delivers with a modified drop point blade and a clean satin finish. There’s a small hole bored into the base of the blade so that it might be attached to a wooden shaft and become a hunting spear if needed. The stainless steel tang is hollow and the glass reinforced nylon handles can be easily removed to reveal fishing line, fishing hooks, and dental floss, which is surprisingly useful and versa-tile when you find yourself in a backwoods pinch.
No space on the injection-molded sheath is wasted. It comes with extra paracord for wrapping, has a ceramic sharpening edge on one side, and the other boasts a magnesium edge to help start fires when the temperature drops. Lastly, one panel on the inside of the sheath has a reflective stainless steel plate for signaling aircraft or approaching parties when you need to get bailed out.
Survival of the fittest is the name of the game. When the stakes are high, you’ll want to keep the TSR™ close.
