Columbia River CRKT 3515 KHC Karen Hood Chopper 9.125" Black 1095 Blade, Polished Resin Infused Fiber Handles, Nylon Sheath
CR3515: 3515 KHC Karen Hood Chopper
Dare pack it into a woodsy snarl, and it'll come out prime to thrash.
The KHC Karen Hood Chopper is a fixed blade survival knife designed to take down trees without adding to the girth of your pack. It rides low profile in its sheath considering its substantial 9.125" blade and punches above its weight. The handles are removable and can be replaced with paracord—becoming a major threat to any job the wilderness serves up.
From her shop in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho, wilderness survivalist pioneer Karen Hood designed the Chopper to hack away at brush, small trees, and camp chores with minimal effort. The impressive blade is poised at the perfect 12-degree drop, maximizing chopping power, and its aggressive, corrosion-resistant powder coated finish faces backcountry elements head on. It stores away neatly in a reinforced nylon sheath.
Stand aside, machetes and hatchets, as the Chopper steps in to take on backwoods business.

A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
This product is USA born and raised.
