TUSK - The Universal Survival Knife by Loyal Blades

€47,378

281

TUSK is a survival knife designed to help you in the outdoors, camping, adventure, trekking, hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, in your vehicle or whenever you need a reliable tool.

  • TUSK is the knife for any survival situation.
  • Multitool to give you more survival options.
  • Super resistant so it will never fail you.

TUSK is 12" long and 0.20" thick, made with top quality 440c stainless steel from world leader company Bohler-Uddeholm with high quality heat treatment. No Chinese materials.

This steel offers a nice balance between strength, hardness (~58 HRC) and wear resistance. So your knife won't break, won't rust and will keep its edge longer.

For stress tests please watch the campaign video.

The handle will be made with polished black linen Micarta, considered the best material for heavy use and abuse. It's better than plastic or wood because it has pleasant tactile properties, offers a firm grip under all circumstances, is durable and tough and it withstands cold, heat and moisture.  

    

When you get a TUSK you can choose from a Kydex sheath, a leather sheath or both of them.

Fire starter, sharpening stone, hex key and nylon leg cord included with both sheaths.

To get a TUSK, click the button below and pick the reward that you want. Simple as that. If you want to add a T-shirt or personalize your knife with your name (or any phrase) just follow the instructions in our Add-On section (scroll 2 sections down). Once you have pledged, sit back and relax. We'll collect your shipping/fulfillment info when the project is complete.

When you back this project you can choose one of these rewards, all of them have FREE SHIPPING to USA and EU.

If you want to receive one TUSK Kickstarter Hero Edition AND one regular TUSK, pledge for Kickstarter Hero Edition (to secure one of the 50 available) and just add the price of the other knife to your pledge.

In addition to your reward you can get T-shirts and you can personalize your knife with your name (or any phrase). Adding this to your reward is easy:

Choose a reward level.

First of all choose one (and only one) reward level to back this project. You cannot choose two reward levels. Just one. You will get all items in that reward.

If you want to add a T-shirt:

If (and only if) you want to receive a T-shirt with your reward, you can add it to your reward by increasing your pledge by 25€ or 28$. If you want to receive more than one T-shirt just add 25€ or 28$ for each one. You can do this when initially backing this project or you can do it later by clicking "Manage My Pledge" at the top of the page. T-shirts as add-ons are shipped worldwide.

There are two models available in sizes XS to XXL.

If you want your knife personalized with your name (or any phrase):

If (and only if) you want to personalize your knife you can add it to your reward by increasing your pledge by 35€ or 40$. If you want to personalize more than one knife just add 35€ or 40$ for each one. You can do this when initially backing this project or you can do it later by clicking "Manage My Pledge" at the top of the page.

You can add text up to 40 letters (spaces included) and you can choose any of the fonts on the list below. It will be laser marked on the blade of your knife, making it unique.

Here you can see the laser marking our logo on the blade.

Relax, you're done for now.

All details like shipping information, T-shirt colors, sizes and add-on specifics, will be collected via survey after the campaign has ended.

If we make it to 45K€ we will add FireCord to every TUSK

The knives will be made in Europe, Spain, by a company with more than 25 years of experience using the best materials so each knife will be a work of art.

The steel is cut by laser and then all the rest of the knife is handmade by profesional artisans, from sharpening to polishing. That is why TUSK can have mirror-polished contours, rounded edges in the finger choil and the handle, and other features that make it stand out from the rest.

We at Loyal Blades trust our products so much that we want to offer you the best lifetime warranty: "Loyal Blades knives are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship. And, if your knife gets broken during normal use, we will fix it or replace it. This warranty is lifetime and transferable. We warranty the knife no matter how many times it's been traded, sold or given away - no sales receipt or proof of purchase required."

That's how sure we are about the quality of this product and the honesty of Kickstarter backers.

You can read the complete warranty terms and conditions here.

                                   Free shipping to United States and European Union!!

Plus: We will send the knives from warhouses in USA and European Union so you don't have to pay for customs duties (USA & European Union friendly).

Worldwide shipping!

For the rest of the world, you can easily view the shipping rate for your country on the check-out menu while backing the project. You will only pay this shipping rate for the first TUSK, the rewards with more than one TUSK will have no aditional rates. Please note that for those countries you 'll be responsible for any customs taxes that may arise. 

We have developed the project from scratch to combine all the advantages of the best knives in a modern survival knife.

We are focusing on the launch of our first product TUSK, and will develop new products after we have our sales established. Our final prototypes are approved. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for manufacturing, finishing and packaging the first production run.

My grandfather survived fighting with U.S. Army Air Force in WWII as a gunner on a B17 Flying Fortress, a plane made to last and resist all kind of challenges. And that's the spirit I want to infuse in all our products. High quality tools, made to last for as long as possible. That is reflected in all aspects of our products, from design to manufacture and the lifetime warranty.

With your help we can develop Loyal Blades as a brand for brave people who wants to make the world a better place and who share some values:

When you back this campaign you are helping to create a community that shares this vision. 

                                                This wouldn't be possible without you.

                              Thank you so much for your support!
