This is the Treeman Combat Machete w/ Knuckle Guard. A Chopping, Slicing, Smashing, Trail Clearing, Hacking, Badass MoFo that incorporates some of the best characteristics a machete should have. The ricasso is wider than the Combat Bowie and we added a lot more steel towards the end of the blade for extra swinging/chopping momentum and ability. This knife is badass and is ready to go to combat. It has a great solid feel and an excellent grip in either hand. It is all business and the thong loop will keep the big blade in your hand, where it belongs.
