Russian/Saiga survival knife

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time way back in my lurker days I could have sworn one of the vendors here had these. http://www.raacfirearms.com/knife.htm

 

I have looked and looked. I just wanted to make for sure IM not over looking it. Has anyone seen these from a forum vendor? or do any of you vendors have, or can get them?

It also goes by the name of Izhmash HB-1-01 Survival Knife

 

Looks really, really nice and can do just about anything. Looks like it has 3 interchangeable blades too?

 

It's all over various sites for sale, try google. It's usually $110-140

Agreed, I found mine on eBay for $70, you should be able to pick one up in that range. But really I would suggest buying Russian Bayonets as the survival knife is kinda silly (I say that having owned one and immediately resold it)...

 

In fact Chevy, there is a guy over at theAKforum who is selling Plum Russian Bayonets right now for $68 shipped. His email is aj.savill@ntlworld.com, I think he has a few boxes full of them. They are in like new/mint condition and will attach to your properly converted saiga.

Someone here got one a while back, and wasn't that impressed with it.

I have always thought they were the shit!

We need a good review, so buy one and tell us what you think,..

I have one I bought from Saigastock.com

 

Negative: You're gonna need to sharpen it. Mine was kinda dull.

 

Positive. It's Badass.

 

I like mine. don't expect a professional fishing kit in the hilt of a knife. It's Russian. It works, it's not fancy or pretty.

 

Compass, fishing gear, blades, etc. I use it out-doors alot. It's well balanced.

now back on topic, thanks for the feedback! big +1.

 

so you had to sharpen it as in it wouldnt cut paper or just wasnt razor sharp?

 

Does it hold its edge pretty well?

 

the seath and cutters pretty sturdy?

It doesn't have a full tang but it's held up pretty well imo. I've cut down limbs with it and it's still going strong.

Maybe it was something he had been thinking about for a while and finally got around to it. If it was, he has an impressive memory.
