The SOLKOA Survival Systems Grip-S (Grip-Survival) is a pair of universal handles capable of holding a multitude of useful tools for field improvisation beyond the capabilities of today’s multi-tools intended primarily for domestic chore use. Grip-S, can hold any of the standard flexible wire saws, any universal shank saw blade, and any round or hexagonal tool up to a quarter inch in diameter, and can do so in a single or double handle grip configuration. The Grip-S comes with a wire saw, a Phillips/Slotted screw driver bit/connector, and a special U-shank connector. A multitude of various universal shank saw blades and standard ¼” hex bits, metal files, drill bits and awls can be selected to expand capabilities to meet any user’s intended tasks without the need for carrying an entire bag of bulky full-size tools.
The Grip-S was originally designed as a tool for military aviators to use in self extraction and subsequent evasion and survival tasks, making use of the included pieces as well as tool components commonly found in urban environments.
