Friday Gear Report: The Woodman’s Pal

afrankelSurvival, Survival Gear

Great for clearing your path of brush–and maybe Zombies–the Woodman’s Pal is an American made classic.

There are several models to choose from. However, pictured here is the Woodman’s Pal MIlitary Premium model with it’s leather wrapped handle and knuckle guard.

From the manufacturer:
The Woodman’s Pal machete is designed to trim, prune, chop, split, blaze trails, brush out lines, clear campsites, chop firewood, split kindling, build hunting blinds or lean-to-shelters.

The Military Premium model, also known since 1941 as the LC-14-B, is our very best model.

  • 16 ½” overall length
  • 5” Military style soft leather grip with steel knuckle guard. Cool in summer and warm in winter
  • 1/8” thick x 10 1/2“ high carbon steel blade hardened to Rockwell C47 giving it strength for cutting, keeping its edge and also flexibility in cold weather.
  • Blade cuts branches and wood up to 1 ½” in diameter with a single stroke. The unique sickle hook slices through stubborn vines and briars and removes unwanted sprout growth at ground level.

For those looking for a rugged tool that can chop and slash, the Woodman’s Pal maybe the right answer for you.
