This is 15" Expedition Cleaver - Rust Free Hand Forged Blade Machete. The Expedition Cleaver is the Bush Cleaver’s longer, leaner and maybe just a Little bit meaner brother. It uses the same concept of a thick spine and a very steep full flat primary grind but to achieve different goals. The Expedition Cleaver more or less aims to emulate the same weight and balance as a heavy machete while delivering all round superior performance. The 4 mm thick spine offers more rigidity and durability during chopping, batoning and other rough use, while the full flat grind offers more fluid, jam free cutting without substantially increased blade weight.The primary grind is backed up by a sturdy convex secondary grind to give the kind of durability you’d expect from EGKH blades while also minimizing cutting resistance at the edge. Its use has varied from building, clearing, chopping firewood, digging, slaughtering animals for food, cutting meat and vegetables, skinning animals, and opening cans. Its use as a general farm and household tool. The Kukri can be use as survival knife or camping knife for outdoor lover.
