This knife is about the same weight as a hatchet, or a lighter-weight handgun. It is short enough to fit in most daypacks, and comes with a sheath that is designed to ride high on the belt, most likely on the left side for cross-draw. Or, use the supplied straps with their quick-release buckles, to strap it to your thigh. You can quickly move it from your pants belt to your web-gear, packframe belt, or gunbelt. Or, you can attach it to your pack or MOLLE gear.
This Bowie is designed to be a powerful all-purpose tool. It is a knife; it chops much like a hatchet; it will trim branches off of poles like a machete; it is fast in the hand, with excellent balance. The point gives excellent penetration. And it is faster to draw and re-sheath than most hatchets. The double guard provides a comfortable, secure hold for pounding with the butt, and for reasonably fine whittling. It is comfortable in both standard- and edge-up grip positions. Currently offered in both carbon steel and 154CM stainless.
