CRKT 18 inch Machete. model = chance in hell

Columbia River Knife and Tool

This is a Dan Onion designed machete ! The sheath is not an afterthought it's a beautiful accompaniment and safety feature.

it has the perfect hardness and thickness for a machete. is it hardened Cutlery? No! it's not supposed to be. it holds an edge but it won't result in catastrophe if you hit a rock.

I received this and it is my watermelon knife. I have a collection of fine German cutlery, but sometimes I need a knife longer than 12 inches.

Machetes are actually functional for brush removal. From and outdoor perspective, if you are bushwhacking this can also help clear underbrush.

kitchen! Every time the knife isn't long enough. 14" chef knife is > $200

also. clearing brush. trimming pine trees. unlimited use.

The question is do I store it in a toolbox or in the kitchen?

I've never felt such a handle and have not seen such a sheath. I wish it wasn't winter, I'd be beating back some brush.

Looks to be the same blade, but that one doesn't include the sheath. Click the option with the sheath and price jumps up well above this Woot deal price.

hmm. For me, in the cart, the $32 one says it has the nylon sheath. I think the difference is it's drop point vs. the more narrow tip (not sure the name of that tip)

Props to OP for his novel-yet-entirely-sensible use for a machete. With a name like Chanceinhell, I bet it helps to think of the watermelon as a zombie skull.

FWIW, I use my Gerber machete for brush clearing. In all seriousness, it's an invaluable landscaping tool.

that one is mislabeled in Amazon's title; it's the K910KKP and actually has a 12" blade as opposed to the 18" K918KKP referred to in the op. But that's a good price at Amazon for the K910KKP--54% off its $69.99 MSRP.

No that's the 12 inch blade, 18" overall

This is the 18 inch blade, 24" overall

If you look at the model number on Amazon and type that in a Google search, you can see the difference.

Amazon isn't doing a good job showing blade length and overall length.

The 12 inch blade machete looks good, same quality, good quality sheath, but 18" is 20 ounces, heavier and considering the wrist being the pivot point, velocity will be 50% greater and the energy will be triple with mass and velocity.

I have a 12" machete. I wouldn't consider a 12 inch one. 12 inch is a toy machete

We played actual fruit ninja tonight.

I carved a pinapple effortlessly.

I plan to clear brush.

Also, I'm ready for Zombies.
