Compact Survival Knife With Plenty of Extras

Named after the small and powerful fish native to South America, the Candiru is a versatile fixed blade for many a task. Made from 1095 carbon steel with a textured, powder-coated finish, the 2-inch blade is designed to maintain an edge through both piercing and slicing tasks. The full-tang construction is great for the outdoors as it doesn’t have a lockup and won’t fail under intense pressure. There’s also jimping on the spine for added security. We’re throwing in a host of extras to go with it, like a paracord lanyard, a cord lock, split rings, an emergency whistle, a fire-starting rod, and a snap hook.

Note: At checkout, choose between Dark Earth, OD Green, and Tan color options. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.

I would highly suggest that everyone keep this Candiru away from your urethra. Devastating results it will have. 🤪 This is one of those knives that you look at and think "What the crap, it's how much for two inches of 1095 steel?" But after the sticker shock, I've really enjoyed having this knife. It stays out on a tabletop where my current rotation pile sits. Actually less of a "rotation", and more of a "what mood am I in?" pile of knives. Almost always carry flat in back pocket. When I got mine, the included sheath for knife only was a fold over Velcro nylon. Worked if you never needed quick use of. Much slower to get access to than a slip joint. And it really didn't like the thickness of the added handle slabs. The plastic slip cover is much more usable. I made my own sheath with a tiny peice of Kydex, and a little leather. It can be carried in either direction on belt. The leather is removable with simple Chicago screws through the Kydex eyelets. But I just leave the leather on, and slip into my back pocket. Flattens out and carries nicely. The Kydex and leather together is not quite as thick as the Micarta handles, but close enough to keep a uniform shape in pocket. And the addition of the Micarta handles makes the grip just about perfect for a tiny knife. The kit was one of those things that looks interesting, but after taking a look at the one I got with my Izula, it went into a drawer and I've never bothered with it since. I also suggest keeping a small amount of oil on the exposed edge if you don't like the look of rust. Probably mineral or olive oil if used with food. I usually just give an occasional swipe with one of my gun rags. So probably mostly CLP.
