I purchase my products directly from the manufacturer which is why my prices are so great. Usually I have to buy in large quantities but for this knife/machete I was able to persuade them to let me have a “sample” quantity. I don’t have many so if you like it go for it!!

This one is a brute of a knife!

It is a very big knife – almost a machete, with a saw blade on top edge and hardwood handle.

It features a surgical steel blade that is hollow ground to a razor edge. The steel is 420. The handle is hardwood grips and it comes with an adequate nylon sheath.

Blade: 14 inches (35cm)long, 2.5 inch (6.5cm) at widest, with a hollow grind for sharpness on the edge. Thickness at back edge 3mm. The blade is satin polished and razor sharp.

Handle: 6 inches (15cm) long. Two hardwood grips grips over a full steel tang.

Tang: full width tang.

Weight: 688grams. No too heavy and quite well balanced.

Sheath: Black nylon sheath – adequate.

Quite simply this is a big knife meant for use. Not a toy for display .

What makes these knives superb is the steel used. Many knives are made with inferior grades of stainless steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.

Grade 420 is capable of attaining great hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.

Condition: New and unused.
