Remote Survival Company "RS-1" Survival Knife, complete and all original with Leather Carrying Pouch, Smith's Washita Stone & Card Insert, Allen Wrench, Wire Saw coiled up in knife on a 5/8" spool, an extra Wire Saw as a spare, Flint Stick, and the original Introduction/Instruction Sheet (two sided) in very good to near mint condition other than the edges of the flint stick in the pouch having seen some usage. The knife measures 8 1/4" overall with a 3" blade of 1/4" stock, with what looks like baked-on painted Aluminum handle scales, with a top lock design. The width of the knife is an 1". The blade doesn't look like it has ever been sharpened as does the Smith Stone which looks unused. The leather pouch doesn't look like it has ever been carried either by the looks of the belt loop on the pouch. Description from Company Insert: The RS-1: A Survival Tool "The RS-1 has been designed for the strict purpose of survival under the most adverse conditions possible. Its an ultra heavy-duty survival tool and is therefore not considered in the same category as that of a normal hunting knife. The blade is a fill quarter inch think, specially designed to perform all survival tasks with optimum efficiency. Alloy is 440-C Stainless, and optional alloys S-1 and D-2 will also be available in the near future. Heat treatment begins with an annealing operation and follows through with a cryogenic (Deep Freezing) process and tempered to a hardness "C" 58 - 60 in a vacuum atmosphere furnace. These blades will hold their edge longer than most other knives and are easier to sharpen because of their hollow-ground design that tapers to a thin, yet strongly reinforced cutting edge. This means that the RS-1 blade can maintain it's cutting efficiency over a longer period of time and be quickly sharpened using a small pocket stone or sharpening steel. This very important necessity is often over-looked in survival knife designs. The RS-1 can be opened and closed with one hand, even while wearing heavy gloves or mittens. This feature can be important should you sustain an injury to one of your arms in a plane crash or during a survival situation. The Saw The RS-1 is unlike any other survival folding knife in the world, because it contains a 16" wire saw that coils around a 5/8" diameter spool within the rear handle. The saw is currently used by the military in survival kits. It can saw through a 2" limb in 45 seconds. It can also saw through harder materials, such as bone, ice and thin-gauge Aluminum such as found in aircraft fuselages. The RS-1 saw cab be brought into instant action by it's pull bar, and is re-wound inside of 20 seconds. For extended survival use, the saw can be detached immediately in the field without tools for construction of a regular bow saw." Very few of these knives are known to exist commercially and are very rare. These knives may have only been made for police, military and emergency personnel but this information can not be confirmed. The manufacturer of this knife may have been responsible for being one of the first manufacturers to apply cryogenic metal treating in the heat treating process of a knife. The knife is known to be at least 25 - 30 years old. Thank you for visiting the store.
