The Pohl Force Alpha Five Survival is a large and robust folding knife, designed by Dietmar Pohl. The knife has a beautiful hollow pivot (hinge screw). It can even be adjusted with a small coin. The shape of the hollow pivot comes back in the design of the lanyard-hole at the back of the handle. It also keeps the pocket clip in place, which can be carried tip-up on both sides. The solid zytel handle has a wide-grip texture. Due to its size there is enough room to properly hold this knife, even with gloves.
The blade is made of CTS-BD1-steel and it cannot be opened with one hand when the knife comes out of the box. They have, however, added thumb stud which can be placed on the blade with a small flat head screw driver. In opened position the blade is blocked by a very solid liner-lock.
The knife comes with a paracord lanyard, including skull-bead.
