"Skullcrushers Xtreme Blade" (SXB) was designed for the Warrior Survivalist to aid in their survival not only in the wild but on the battlefield as well. Extreme Situations require an Extreme Blade, and the SXB meets that demand and then some! Skullcrushers Xtreme Sidekick has now been developed as just that, a sidekick to the SXB. The SXS is a small version of the SXB meant to complement it while out in the field. Small to EJ, and when compared with the SXB, but most will consider this a mid-sized knife. The basic blade shape has remained the same, but the handle has been modified to accommodate some different usage options. There are holes in the handle front and back to provide lanyard and lashing options. The sheath is Kydex with beta loops designed to give the user multiple mounting options, such as scout style, appendix, horizontal, IWB, on a pack, on a vest, etc. Just remove the screws once the snap is open and reposition the straps however you would you prefer to carry it. With a blade length of approximately 5, this knife finds itself right at home with survivalists, but itll also make a great all-around camp knife and will also function very well as a hunting knife. EJ Snyder is an extreme Survivalist and Adventurer in real life and as seen on TV. He is also a highly decorated, 25-year Army Combat Vet who served in the 1991 Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
