My latest G.W. Stone acquisition. I posted this one a while back in the Fixed Blades forum but it belongs here also. This was one of Stone’s innovations. He made a lot of knives in the 60’s for servicemen being deployed to Viet Nam, this one was designed as a survival knife for pilots. Stone called this the “Magnum” Survival Knife. Has a wide, heavy blade with spine sharpened at same angle as a hatchet. The blade is wide enough to use for digging. When in hand you can feel the balance weighted such that it could be effectively used as a hatchet. Drilled for a lanyard. Linen micarta handles, 12 inches OAL.

I was able to acquire another G.W. Stone custom fixed blade. This one has been carried and used lightly, so I now have a good one to carry. Typical of his work it’s materials, fit and finish are flawless. At 7-5/8 inches OAL with a 4 inch blade it’s a good practical size. Integral design, genuine stag handle slabs. Nice custom-made original sheath holds the knife snugly, has a metal belt clip. :D
