A survival emergency isn’t just sitting and waiting – taking the right steps as soon as you realize you’re in a survival situation massively increases your chances of both surviving and getting rescued. The SOL Core Lite has been designed with these essential survival tasks in mind – the quintessential multifunction survival tool.
The main feature of the Core Lite is its folding AUS-8 steel blade, which locks into place with a robust locking liner. The drop-point hollow-ground blade has been engineered to excel at survival tasks such as whittling, slicing, and tasks where blade control is essential. The combination of a long handle and short blade prevents the blade from getting unwieldy when you are making kindling for fire, cutting wet tree bark to expose dry inner wood, or notching and grooving branches in order to construct a shelter.
When the sun goes down, your work doesn’t have to stop – a dual-battery ultra-bright LED light points down the blade for task cutting in the dark and will illuminate your camp when other light sources aren’t available. And, a 100db rescue whistle at the base of the knife handle signals rescuers to your location.
A true survival tool is something you take with you on every trip, every time. To that end, it has to be light enough that it disappears in your pocket or in your pack until you need it most. At a scant 1.5 oz, you won’t even know the Core Lite is there until you need it.
The SOL Core Lite is for situations when having a quality cutting tool means the difference between surviving and succumbing. The SOL Core has a built in LED flashlight and fail-safe whistle.

I played around with one of these, and it's honestly not that great. The blade is tiny for the size and weight of the knife, the whistle is ok, and why the hell do you need a tiny LED on a pocket knife? Maybe the batteries were dying, but the light wasn't very strong. The construction feels pretty sketchy.
Broke off at first day when it hooked on chair
not with a lot of force!!!
I should have paid closer attention to the details about this knife because the blade is super small. The handle feels of very cheap construction (its plastic). Although it seems to be like it fulfills its taste well: a cheap, small knife with cutting light and whistle.. Not honestly sure I would recommend it.
