Developed by Ron Hood, one of the world’s foremost experts on wilderness survival, to be the must-have survival tool. The Hoodlum is light enough to carry in a sheath, yet heavy-duty enough for required tasks in the wilderness. Shock Mitigation System in the handle reduces shock and wasted energy when chopping. Large finger choil gives you extra control for detailed tasks like whittling. A notch cut in the blade spine adds versatility for tasks like scoring bone, bending wire and removing pots from a campfire. Remove the Micarta® handles and create a spear by lashing a branch to the tang of the blade. Integrated hammer and lanyard hole in the butt of the handle. Includes a M.O.L.L.E. compatible, heavy-duty nylon sheath with leg-strap cord and front storage carry pouch. Made in USA. Blade length: 10". Overall length: 15-1/2". Weight: 14.6 oz.
