Which full tang knifes fit with sheath 100% vertically into a Nalgene stainless steel bottle?

Inside it is 197 mm high.

(The idea behind is of course to build a survival kit around it.)

That's of course an option but I always try to develop plug and play solutions which easily can be copied by everybody who knows about it.

I think about the Terävä Jääkäripuukko 85 and ask myself which alternatives exist.

Was going to suggest the Varusteleka's little knives.

ESEE have couple of skeleton knives that'd fit.

I have not tried it yet, but first thoughts were a mora classic 1 and 0/2, and the wild card option may be the manly patriot...

Several of Roselli's knives will go. Carpenter, Bearclaw, Grandmother, Grandfather .... if I was stuck somewhere I wouldn't much object to the Carpenter being the only knife I had.

Go have a look at Gene Ingrams example knives page :):lol:

Mora Classic 1 would fit, but isn't full tang.
Manly Patriot is too long.
Roselli full tangs are too small.
Example knifes too beautiful to be locked into a bottle and a bit pricy in the first view.

Ezee Izula would probably work.
But Terävä Jääkäripuukko 85 has the longer blade and seems to me to be the better survival knife.


Any other ideas?

The Skrama 80 is a few mm shorter than Jääkäri 85. And the plastic sheath, leather sheath takes more space.
I was going to add Skrama 80 to my fire kit before I changed my mind and took the saw instead.

I have seen that they offer a metal wire clip for the plastic sheath too.
Does it work well?

Do you know if the plastic sheath really holds the knife like a Mora sheath, or is it more like such a blade protection for a kitchen knife?

Can plastic sheath and metal clip replace the leader sheath as secure belt attachment?

I have the plastic sheath for my Skrama 80. Knife stays firmly in the sheath. Don´t have the clip nor leather sheath so cannot comment on that.

That doesn't look like a survival knife but nevertheless pretty interesting.

That is exactly what I was surching for since several years: Something I really need but didn't know that it exists. And an item that I don't already own, just made by the competition.

Who makes it?
What's the name??
Where can we all buy it immediatly???

:encourage:

Does it need to be full tang or would a skeleton tang do ?
I'm thinking about the Aitor knives that are often included in survival kits anyway.

Spyderco still sells the Enuff. I don't use mine but I think it is a good knife and will do in almost all circumstances. Flat ground, fulltang VG10.

And you might consider a Spyderco Military, Police or Endura, or a Stretch.

Being realistic I would suggest a Mora Eldris. Short enough to fit the Nalgene, and has a practical grip. Whilst not full tang the reduced blade length makes for less leverage/stress where the tang meets plastic. So it should be strong enough to cope with abuse from most people.
