French Army Bivouac Knife

Thanks to : leevalley

Standard issue in the French Armée de Terre (infantry), this knife is compact and lightweight yet sturdy. The tough ABS body contains a foldout knife, can opener and corkscrew, as well as a spoon and fork that store in the handle. Honed ready for use, the 3-1/2" knife blade is hardened to Rc50-54, holds an edge well, and secures positively with a lock-back mechanism.

All attachments are stainless steel. Weighing only 138g (5 oz), it is 5-1/2" long by 1-1/4" wide by 1-1/4" thick when assembled. Comes in a nylon sheath with a belt loop and a belt clip. An excellent camping knife.

Made in France.
