The Selvans should probably go under two classifications: 1) survival knife, and 2) survival tool, since it is a blend of both. The Selvans was named after the Etruscan mythological god of forests.

The Ontos was the inspiration for the Selvans. Extrema Ratio and the Italian Survival Federation worked together to modify the Ontos and create a different specialized knife. Their goal was to make the Selvans a survival/wilderness knife that was also a high-performing “working tool”. One of the major changes was to increase the length of the handle. This allows you to use the Selvans efficiently for chopping and cutting. The blade was also shortened slightly and the serrations were eliminated.


The blade has a durable black coating that protects it from corrosion and makes it reflection proof. Like the Ontos, this is a massive, powerful blade. The blade at the widest part is almost two inches. The thick blade is exposed on the spine as it enters the handle and sits slightly above the handle and extends into the top of the handle. This gives you a safe, convenient, thumb pressure area. The sharpened edge ends just before reaching the handle end of the blade and the blade then continues slightly more to create a thicken area for a lanyard hole as well as providing a lower guard.


The handle on the Selvans is also black. It is made of Forprene and ergonomically designed to give you an excellent grip. Very lightly textured and has a “rubbery” feel to it. Indentations on the handle near the blade provide additional hand control. The Selvans handle is removable as needed for necessary knife maintenance.The butt end of the handle terminates in a flat pommel with a lanyard hole. (Lanyard included.)


The Selvans sheath is made of high-quality reinforced nylon. Color is green (O.D. green). It has a removable belt strap section that snaps on/off if you want to remove it. It also has a leg strap to provide stability.


A different survival kit was added to the Selvans. This kit includes: a whistle, pocket chain saw, water purifying tablets, a compass, copper wire, fire starting flint and striker, LED micro light, a lanyard, and a diamond sharpener. All carried in a compact, heavy-duty case that is attached to the front of the sheath. This kit can be detached from the sheath and it is also MOLLE compatible.


The Extrema Ratio Selvans was developed with input from Daniele Dal Canto who is a Master Instructor for the Federazione Italiana Survival Sportivo e Sperimentale. (Italian Survival Federation).  The Selvans is a specialized knife; a great companion in wilderness and survival situations. Bold. Strong.
