Here are two outdoorsman general purpose hunting knives. These knives are part of the Smith and Wesson survival series and have a 5 inch blade and hollow handle to store survival items. The survival series of knives were a collaboration between Smith and Wesson and Blackie Collins. The blades of these knives were forged from a modified 440 series stainless steel and underwent a 47 step process from forging to hand polishing before being fitted to the handle.
Smith and Wesson produced a few other in-house knives after the Survival Series, but none required the hand fitting of this series. The boxes for these knives are marked 6010 and 6020 but the knives are identical in appearance. The Smith and Wesson survival series is still regarded by many as the most beautiful knives S&W has ever produced in house. These knives came as pictured with their leather sheaths and boxes and both remain in collector condition. Only 17,500 of these knives were produced over 30 years ago.
