CRK918KKP: Ken Onion K918KKP Chanceinhell 18" Machete
One blade to rule them all. 

You couldn't bring yourself to believe there could be a bigger machete than the original. Then CRKT brought out the 16" blade. Now, say hello to your not so little friend. A full 18" slab of steel that comes with the same comfortable handle, and reinforced nylon sheath as the original, this is the survival machete to use when the only thing you’ll be cutting to is your destination.

The Chanceinhell 18" is a beefy fixed blade survival machete designed by award-winning custom knife maker Ken Onion of Kaneohe, HI to be tough, strong, and work like an ox. A thick, clip-point carbon steel blade has a black powder coat that is durable in extreme environments. Built for hard use, it’s easy to sharpen after you've put the finishing touches on your handmade hotel in the woods.

Half the battle in any survival situation is with your own physical exhaustion. To combat that, the double injection molded handle is ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue and features multiple lanyard holes for varied grip options. The result is more efficient cutting action that'll make thick brush RIP.

This machete includes a reinforced nylon sheath with a unique Velcro belt loop system that can be changed between two positions: dangling or snug against the belt. An extra paracord fob comes laced onto the sheath for emergencies or lashing this machete to a pack, truck, or pack mule.

The Chanceinhell 18" is the knife to grab for ensuring your own survival or that of a few Hollywood actors who are in over their heads.

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Beautiful product
This is a great blade, it has a good weight with it, you dont need to give it a massive swing for it to be effective. The handle is so comfortable in your hand when using it. Easy to sharpen and keep clean. Top product. The only thing i have fault with is the sheath, I've had the blade poke out whilst putting it back in, but nothing too major.
