FirstEdge is a newcomer in the knife industry, started by CEO Brett Seber, who has spent 30 years as a senior executive in the knife and tool industry as well as personally having several knife and tool patents. The above knife is the 5050 Fixed Blade Survival Knife. The 5050 Survival Knife was designed and built in partnership with US Special Forces. It features a full tang fixed blade with a length of 5.125″ and a 60-61 HRC, made of ELMAX stainless steel. ELMAX is an extremely durable and wear-resistant steel produced by Bohler-Uddenholm of Sweden.

Additionally, the 5050 Survival Knife has coarse textured black G-10 handles, a striking pommel, and a lanyard hole. The 5050 Survival Knife also comes with a tri-composite sheath, which is composed of KYDEX with hardened stainless steel liners. These sheaths are designed to be disassembled, be cleaned, and reassembled within minutes, and are designed to withstand harsh conditions, including Arctic conditions.
