    is the chain welded into a solid handle? or does it move like a chain?

    definitely welded, in this example.

    You could gt away with brazing or PROBABLY silver soldering.
    Plumbing solder wouldn't work.


    If it's still chain like, it becomes a form of kusari-fundo instead of a survival knife.
    though attachment would be easier, as you could bolt through the hole that already exsists.
