The EKA AxeBlade is a type of hybrid between a fixed knife and an axe. On the one hand you have the length and the centre of gravity in the front like with an axe. On the other the blade is thin enough to take hold of it close to the edge for the more detailed tasks. By combining these two qualities this is a great companion for camping adventures where you cannot take too much gear with you. As such you replace a knife and an axe with one AxeBlade.
The blade of the AxeBlade is made from Sandvik 12C27 steel. A Swedish type of steel specifically developed for knives. It retains its sharpness well and is corrosion resistant. To protect the blade it is enhanced with a blackwashed coating. As such traces of use are hardly invisible.
The handle is made from G10. A light-weight composite material which, in this case, is enhanced with a wooden pattern. As such the AxeBlade looks more classic. You can carry it with you in the included kydex sheath. It is enhanced with a belt clip (max. belt width 5.0 cm). It comes with additional strap to make sure you can attach the bottom of the sheath to your leg to prevent it from dangling. You can, of course, also use this strap to hang the AxeBlade over your shoulder, whichever way you prefer.
