It’s big news for fans of the new(ish) US-based knife company: Reiff Knives are finally releasing the F5 Field Survival Knife. And they’re doubling down with a scandi version, which they’re calling the S5 Glider Bushcraft Knife.

The Reiff F5 is a the long-awaited 5-inch addition to Reiff’s line up, which currently consists of the F3, F4, and F6 in various choices of handle materials, steels, and edge grinds. According the announcement page on the Reiff site the “baseline shapes” for the whole F series, including the F5, were drawn up early before they released their flagship models in 2021.
