CRKT Knife Maintenance Tool
A survivalist has to rely on the excellent design of as few tools as possible so that he won’t have to carry an entire box-load of gadgets that will help him get out of any particular situation. And while the multitool pocket knife has been the ubiquitous survival tool of the experts, there simply are too few maintenance tools out there providing backup to the principal survival tools. Thankfully, the CRKT Knife Maintenance Tool is now here to keep one’s pocket knives and other tools more than ready to meet the challenges ahead.
The KMT is a tool that maintains the integrity of bladed tools. A ceramic honing edge is perfect for realigning the curled edges of blades, especially those that have been subjected to a variety of rigorous activities which no ordinary human should ever do. While some folks believe that honing tools are similar to sharpening gadgets, these do not remove or strip metal from the edge of the blade. Instead, they make it exceptionally linear again, allowing the edge to be sharpened with greater precision.
This is where the sharpener of the KMT comes in. Constructed of tungsten carbide, the KMT sharpener can make quick work of sharpening a variety of tools such as pocket knives and folding knives. These two tools – honing and sharpening edges – make up the core of the Knife Maintenance Tool. The good news is that these are not the only tools available on the KMT.
Also finding their way into the KMT is a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and two Torx bits for tightening loose nuts, spacer screws, and clip screws, among others. And with its ring attachment, including the KMT into your keychain is a breeze.
The Knife Maintenance Tool may not be a great survival tool. But it can surely assist one’s survivalist preparedness.
