DIVING SPARROW (Designed by Abe Elias)
This unique knife was designed by Abe Elias of Diving Sparrow Knife Works. The original concept was for a handy utility blade that could be placed in a small survival kit which would have more strength and durability than a razor blade. Abe found that not only were wilderness survival enthusiast carrying it but people were adapting it to be an “inside the belt line” self defense knife, easy to conceal and carry.
