For quite some time we carried and sold the #333 insulation knife by Mora of Sweden with the edge re-tuned for use as an ultra-light machete, until Mora decided to discontinue the model. Fortunately we stumbled across this little gem to replace it! The 12" spring-tempered stainless steel blade features a full flat grind (unlike the Mora) for deep-biting cuts and good rigidity in the spine. The ergonomic polypropylene handle is injection molded directly to the tang for a perfect bond and superb durability. Perfect for slashing light brush and vegetation, and surprisingly durable and effective in up to medium-weight chopping of woody targets, though it is best applied to situations where finesse is of greater importance than brute chopping ability.
This serrated version features a "right-handed" serrated chisel grind. While less well suited to chopping woody targets, it is particularly good at cutting vegetation and weedy growth. Many old American corn knives/hooks featured serrated blades for just such a purpose.
