Although you have to pay a hefty price for the MOVA-58 but hey, when you are out into the wild, you better bring along your best weapon!

Moreover, the knife comes with a full leather sheath to make it comfortable for carrying, a fire steel to start a fire and a sharpening stone to keep that blade top notch.

Features of the CDS Survival Mova 58 Knife


The MOVA-58 boasts a Spanish-made, laser-cut, stainless steel blade. The blade itself is 4.75 inches thick and 5.70 inches long which adds to the overall 10.82 inches of the knife and is just enough to make the knife portable and comfortable to carry around.

The blade has a sharp edge making it ideal for a range of activities such as batoning, splitting, chopping and cutting. The MOVA-58 is a full-tang knife which means the blade is one solid piece of silverware, making it very durable and rigid. The blade is made out of stainless steel-Molybdenum-Vanadium 58.

Micarta Handle

Known for its strength, durability and it’s resistance against extreme temperatures and moisture, the Micarta handle forms a perfect marriage with the stainless steel blade.

The two handle pieces with Kydex grips, pinned on to the blade, give it the perfect grip on the hand allowing you to cut through the most rigid materials without leaving a single scratch on your hands.

As it can bear extreme temperatures, you can use it in the most freezing conditions as well as in the most humid ones without fear of it getting brittle in the long run.

Leather Sheath, Sharpener and Fire Steel

The full leather sheath comes with a blade sharpener and a fire steel creating an all in one package for the wilderness lovers out there; the fire steel can be used along with the knife to create sparks almost instantly, needed for your campfire while the sharpener leaves the blade with a thin and sharp edge.

The sheath can also be made water-proof by using bee wax on it, so you do not have to worry about it getting soaked. Not only that, the sheath itself is quite sleek and can easily be attached to a belt or your bag, making it very easy to carry.
