The EKA MachBlade W1 is a practical and solid machete. This machete is razor-sharp upon delivery which is exceptional for a machete. The blade 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 spine is enhanced with a row of serrations. Even though they are not that sharp you can use them to cut through a branch. The handle is made from G10 enhanced with a wood pattern. As such you benefit from both the classic look and feel, and the advantages of this modern composite material.
You carry the EKA MachBlade W1 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 machete over your shoulder, whichever way you prefer.
Because of the build, use of materials and finish this is a very functional and practical machete. Perfect when removing dense vegetation of building a camp with shelter.
