This Smith & Wesson SW8 Survival Knife is the perfect knife for outdoor enthusiasts. It can be used for the same applications as other hard-use knives, but it packs a secret surprise. The handle screws off to reveal a hollow cavity for spear attachment. No need to carry an entire spear when you can attach it to any sapling you can find in the woods and you've got yourself an adequate survival spear. Keep it close by your side with the included sheath.

Nice Tool to Have

This is a nicely made, heavy duty tool made by a company with bona fide history. I have not yet used this tool on anybody important so I really cannot say for sure how well it works. But it has potential and looks like it can do the job. LOL.

Great Idea

I think it will be a great Item to add to my bug out bag. As a last resort to defend yourself or stealth hunting. A long or short pole can be used ( prefer a longer pole ) I would have liked to see the handle part that you unscrew hollow for survival Items Matches fish hooks, Etc. With Improvement's I would give it a 5 star rating !

spear knife

The 3 day shipping took 5 days but the knife itself is great - went to home depot and bought a new heavy duty broom handle for 5 bucks and screwed it right on the threads. .i am very happy with it (impressed even).

A little work in the garage

I took mine into the garage and a few minutes on the bench grinder and I had two cutting edges up to the curve (all that is needed for a spear). Do not hurry and over heat it. I frequently dip it into a can of water to save the temper and anneal. It will be a little weaker at the tip.

Not for cheap handles.

I'm not an experienced spear thrower by any means, however, from a range of roughly 10 feet using a cheap broom handle I managed to sink every throw into a make shift target. The only problem being that on my last throw, with the blade about half way in my target, the broom handle screw broke. I would NOT recommend using anything but wood. Just a heads up, enjoy everybody.

save ammunition

Rifle ammunition is getting scarce, and supplies will probably continue to be hoarded. I admit to not always dispatching game with one shot. The Smith & Wesson Survival Spear is the answer, providing the means for a quick dispatch of a critically wounded deer, bear,or Russian boar.Sharpening the "false edge" should be viewed as an easily-accomplished option. Those who use it primarily as a working knife will find more safety around the camp, leaving the dull edge.On the other hand, I have used a single-edge knife, lashed to a hickory limb,in an actual survival situation -- this knife/spearhead is superior to that right out of the box.

If you're out of bullets...

Smith & Wesson are obviously famous for their firearms but I suspect that this spearhead would penetrate plenty well enough to provide an alternative to a gun. As a knife, it is of S&W quality with just one sharp cutting edge and a wicked point in a sturdy housing. The handle disassembles easily for shaft attachment, but is 'grippy' enough to enable this to function perfectly well as a stand alone knife. Well worth its comparatively reasonable price.

I bot 3,they are great

They are a good product,well thoughtout design and I will buy more.Is a great point for a longer walkingstick,not to mention several on a long handle keeps the predators (two or four legged) at bay.I would rather have one on a long pole in an emergency than wish I had one. The possibilities are endless.

Where's the Beef

The "Beef" seems to be the false edge. Okay the picture is obviously wrong, but the bottom line is that this is a great outdoor/survival knife well worth the price. I don't expect to have to turn this into a spear and fight off Zombie hords any time soon, but with this I could. More of them will also be going out to friends and family for Christmas, but don't let them know.

If you need it...

This is an excellent idea but not what I would have expected from S&W. I know that I have fashioned a spear out of a survival knife fastened to the end of a stick on a few occasions, this makes it so much simpler. I agree that making it double-edged would have been a great idea but it's is from a company based in Springfield, MA. Double-edged knives are illegal here so I'm guessing that is their reasoning... but honestly who knows. Realisitically... if you can't make this work as is, you either need to spend more time in the gym or maybe take up quilting or basket weaving.
