Designed for heavy use in real survival situations, this knife stands alone or makes an excellent companion knife to the larger knives in the series. It's compact enough to allow for every day carry and tough enough for camping, hunting, or backpacking. Atop the blade is a notch for efficient striking of a ferro rod, and one is included with each knife. The smallest of the FIRECRAFT series, the FC3.5 Pro has pre-fastened, removable bolt-on textured G10 handle scales to allow for a rugged grip and versatility. Each FIRECRAFT knife is outfitted with a rugged Kydex sheath system designed to be mounted in a variety of positions. Carried vertically, horizontally, or attached to other equipment, the sheath system offers you options.

I had high hopes for this tool. When it arrived I was not disappointed. Very robust, very comfortable in my hand, and sharp. This thing is a little beast. And the OD green and orange combo is my favorite. The only thing I dislike is the fit on the sheath is very tight and hard to draw and resheath. But very cool.
What an amazing blade. I've hunted hard for the perfect fixed EDC for work, camping, hiking and hunting and the firecraft checked every box. Beautifully crafted, American made art for a price that was impossible to pass up. Well done!
I'm loving the Firecraft 3.5, it's the perfect compromise of a capable survival fire making knife but still small and light enough to ride on your belt daily as an EDC. I find it as comfy as my M1 Backpacker pro for daily tasks, but more comfortable to feather stick with, especially in a tighter hammer grip. It's not as nice in hand as my Ursus 45, but nothing is! The firecraft 3.5 is perfect for what it is, and I'm very happy with the Magnacut steel. White River seems to have nailed the heat treat. I reprofiled it to about 18° per side. It takes a sticky sharp edge, and has been holding it extremely well. The Ferro rod divot works awesome, I've thrown some of the best chunky sparks ever from this thing.
This is my go to knife to edc while camping. It takes care of any small chores i have while out with the family and is just a cool knife. I plan to add the fc5 to my collection for larger work.
