MSK-1 is a Complete Survival System You Can Use and then Pass On to the Next Generation
MSK-1 is a Complete Survival System You Can Use and then Pass On to the Next Generation

“If Things Went Really Bad in the World and You Could Only Have One Knife for the Rest of Your Life, Which Knife Would You Choose?”

I get asked this question all the time…

Hi, my name is David. I'm a former Marine, a Survival Instructor, Entrepreneur, and the Founder and Owner of Ultimate Survival Tips, a popular, survival blog and YouTube Channel (recently ranked by Watch Mojo as the #1 Survivalist Channel) with over 300,000 subscribers.

Over the years, I’ve used, tested, and reviewed hundreds of knives… but I've never found an all-in-one knife that could do everything I need for camping, backpacking, survival, tactical training, and general utility use wherever I go.

So in 2014, I decided to develop a solution… I started sketching, integrating elements from blades I loved, along with innovations that had never been seen before in one knife.

Let me introduce you to… MSK-1: Multi-Scenario Knife.

The MSK-1 is much more than an innovative knife that’s big enough for any job, small enough for any kit, and tough enough for any situation. It’s a complete survival system that you’ll be able to use for your lifetime and then pass on to the next generation.

When the original MSK-1 sketches were created in early 2014, we made the decision NOT to compromise on materials or cut any corners. To me this meant the knife HAD to be designed and manufactured in the USA and made from the finest materials. I remember saying…

“Dude, we’re gonna do this right or we’re not going to do it at all.”

Now, I realize... at the end of the day… my relentless commitment to excellence means this knife is not going to fit every budget… I wish it did…

But for those who support this project, the MSK-1 may be the single best outdoor gear investment you ever make.

Here are just a few of the epic features, advantages, and benefits included with every MSK-1.

KNIFE INNOVATIONS

SURVIVAL INNOVATIONS

HANDLE SURVIVAL KIT INCLUDES:

  • 1.5" Mini Fire Steel Rod: Quick emergency fire starting 
  • 2 Waterproof FAT (First Aid Tinder) Packs: For starting fires, bandaid, disinfecting wounds 
  • 3 Ranger Bands: Secure gear and extend the burn time of your tinder for fire starting 
  • 20' of 50 lb. Line: Fishing, snares, mending gear or emergency wound stitching 
  • 1 Magnetized Sewing Needle: Navigation, or patching gear
  • 3 Hooks and Sinkers: Fishing 
  • 2 Two Safety Pins: Emergency gear repair 
  • 1 Liter Fire Resistant Food Grade Bag: Collect and purify water

SHEATH INNOVATIONS

I never understood why so many companies design a great knife only to wrap it in a terrible sheath, with limited upgrade and carry options.

So we went back to the drawing board and spent over a year, rethinking what a survival knife sheath should be.

The result is the Switchback ACS - Adaptable Carry System.

GET TWO AMAZING SHEATHS IN ONE... Nylon AND Kydex.

Our Switchback ACS - Adaptable Carry System is the first sheath package that switches from a feature-rich black, ballistic Nylon sheath, to a low profile, black Kydex tactical sheath by removing a single bolt.

CARRY MSK-1 ANY WAY YOU WANT

Drop Leg, Belt, Pack or MOLLE Carry - YOU Choose!

Easily convert the Switchback ACS Sheath System to transport your MSK-1 in either the standard (left or right handed) belt or drop leg carry positions.

Both the Nylon AND Kydex Sheath builds come standard WITH ALL the hardware you need to attach your MSK-1 to a pack or MOLLE compatible gear.

TRANSFORM YOUR SHEATH INTO A MAD SURVIVAL KIT

Take Along the Gear that's MOST Important to YOU!

Both Nylon AND Kydex sheaths have a generous array of grommet holes that are designed to fit optional add-on tools like the MSK-1 fire steel holder and MSK-Mini Companion knife.

MOLLE webbing on the front of the nylon sheath accepts add-on MSK-1 Kit Pouches (currently in development), so you can customize your sheath and carry the gear that’s most important to you.

MSK-1 SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Full tang, fixed blade, fine edge 
  • Blade material: D2 high carbon, semi-stainless, tool steel
  • Blade thickness: 0.25 inches (0.64 centimeters)

  • Switchback ACS 2-in-1 sheath system: Ballistic Nylon and Kydex 
  • Made in the USA with American Materials
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • We'll even sharpen and tune your MSK-1 (just send it to us).

 

 

As you can see… there’s innovation behind every detail of this knife… But all this adds up to more than a tough, versatile, all-purpose outdoor knife…

The MSK-1 is a comprehensive survival knife system that’s designed to survive life’s worst, and help you enjoy life’s best.

Now we need your help. Your contribution will enable us to complete our first production run… funding the custom tooling, material purchases and highly skilled craftsman required to build each knife.

With your support, we’ll bring this one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, Made in the USA knife to you and to the world.

And please share this campaign with your friends and family.

THANK YOU for your encouragement and kind support! 

And remember, BE PREPARED… Because You Never Know.

David, Founder & Owner
