Field testing the heavily modified British military survival knife by John Nowill. The specs of this big chopper:
Blade length – 18 cm (7″)
Blade thickness – 6 mm (almost 1/4″)
Weight without the sheath – 450 g (1 Ib)
Blade material – 1095 high carbon steel
Full tang construction
I have a 6″ leuku, and it’s just too light to chop trees like that. That said, it’s a lot more comfortable to carry around. This MOD weighs as much as my machetes, yet will probably never do as good a job at chopping trees and clearing brushes. I guess there’s always a trade off.
This knife is supposed to be a military tool. I have my doubts how useful it would actually be on a battlefield or near it.
