Description: Mastersmith P.J. Tomes doesn't make as many knives has he used to, so I was extremely pleased when he called to let us know he had just completed a new batch.
Tomes created this machete as a hard working tool! The 12 inch blade is formed from 1095 carbon steel, for exceptional durability and edge holding. As is traditional with machetes, the blade is thin and easily slices through vines and thin branches. A convex ground edge provides strength and durability.
The Scagel style handle (a hallmark of Tomes' work), is exceptionally well done. The handle combines stacked black fiber with thinner nickel spacers and stacked leather. A polished 416 stainless steel guard stops your hand from sliding forward onto the blade. The handle is completed with a stag 'pommel'.
The knife is accompanied by a leather sheath.
