As someone who spends a majority of their free time outdoors camping, backpacking, and testing their limits; a knife becomes a frequent tool you come to rely on. The idea was simple, design a bad ass knife made in the USA that will out perform any other knife, won't let you down in a survival situation, and will last you a lifetime.

So for the last year I have been sketching, designing, and working on the perfect survival knife. Incorporating elements from my favorite knives, to original ideas never seen before.

The 4Ever Knife was thoughtfully designed with the intention of performing flawlessly in a survival situation and lasting forever; while also featuring innovative ideas never seen before. 

The 4Ever Knife is artfully crafted from 3/16'' 440c stainless steel or Damascus steel sourced right here in the US. Next the 4Ever Knife is then perfectly cut using the water jet process at a local company. From here the 4Ever Knife moves to the heat treating process resulting in a super strong blade. Once the heat treating process is complete the blade profile is then ground into the metal giving the 4Ever Knife its sexy lines. Finishing out the process, the 4Ever Knife is then stonewashed, final sharpened, and hand assembled. The end result is a badass USA made survival knife that you can rely on.

Specifications:

- Knife 10'' long, blade length 5.5''
- Full Tang
- 3/16" thick 440c stainless steel or Damascus
- Finger Guard
- Solid thumb ramp
- Innovative magnetic G10 Handles (no extra tool required to access gear in handle)
- Hidden survival gear in handle from Wazoo Survival
- Hardened blade to 58-60 Rockwell
- Custom Kydex sheath
- Wrapped with Live Fire Gear 550 FireCord (Paracord wrapped version)
I believe in my knives and stand behind them. The 4Ever Knife comes with a lifetime warranty.

 

 

Survival Gear in the 4ever Knife Handle
Survival Gear in the 4ever Knife Handle

 Survival Gear:

- 1/8'' X 2'' Firesteel
- Ceramic Firesteel Striker, Throws More Sparks
- 2 F.A.T. Packs (First Aid Tinder) Use for Wounds or Start Fires
- 2 Fishing Hooks (Fishing)
- 20ft of 50lb Test line (Fishing, Snares, Gear Repair, Emergent Stitches)
- Magnetized Needle (Navigation, Gear Repair, Stitches)
- Katadyn Water Purification Tablet (Purify water anywhere)

The gear hidden inside the 4Ever Knife was specifically picked for a survival situation; providing you with key tools to obtain Food and Water, start a Fire, and build a Shelter. With the 4Ever Knife, you may just save your life or someone else's.

The 4Ever Knife was designed to be more than just a knife. It was created to be there when sh*t hits the fan, to be the ultimate survival tool and possibly save a life.

I was tired of "other survival knives" that required you to carry or use an extra tool to access the gear. To remedy this problem, I created an innovative magnetic grip design. One grip is permanently fixed to the blade while the other side can be removed by overcoming the 7lb magnetic pull. This makes the gear easily accessible while the alignment pins keep the grip from moving on you.

The 4Ever Knife is great for EDC (Every Day Carry) and ideal for those who are adventurous. The 4Ever Knife excels at chopping, carving, and performing the finer tasks like slicing and crafting feather sticks. If you want ONE quality knife that can do MORE than just Cut, then the 4Ever Knife is for you.

I believe in simplicity when it comes to sheaths, but I will not compromise on quality. To finish out the 4Ever Knife is a custom Kydex sheath with a nylon belt loop. It is durable, lightweight, and functional. For those who like adding extras to their sheaths, fear not, as you can easily do so.

Some people have expressed a worry that if they drop their 4Ever Knife the magnetic grip is going to fall right off. This is not true, it was specifically designed with alignment pins and very strong rare earth magnets. I hope this drop test video alleviates that worry. Now with that said, dropping the knife from an extreme height, onto something hard,or throwing the knife, the grip may come off.

Risks and challenges

First off thanks for checking out the 4ever Knife!

I have full confidence in producing and delivering the 4ever Knife in a timely matter to everyone that backs the project. I have created 2 successful projects prior to this and all items were received by the backers. With this prior experience, I know where things can go wrong or issues that may arise. I have already planned and created solutions for this.

One of the main challenges that we could face in this project, is getting more backers than expected. I have secured additional metal suppliers and manufacturers in the USA to remedy this problem if it occurs. I have also received samples from them to make sure they meet my high quality standards.

If anything unexpected that I did not plan for does happen, you will be the first to know. I believe in TRANSPARENCY as all of you are what makes projects like this come to life.

Thanks,
Nolan Brundige
