CIKO5001: Okapi Slim Profile Machete with Orange Injection Molded Handle


Okapi is a pocketknife and hand-tools manufacturing company based on the North-East coast of South Africa. Supplying the dark continent of Africa with affordable, highly durable and functional knives and agricultural tools for 112 years has been no small task but accomplished with much success. With such a wide range of environments and conditions to factor, from the arid savannahs to the thick, tropical jungles, Okapi products can found taming the wild in all of them. From forestry and fire control implements to machetes to sugar cane knives, Okapi covers the gamut to be a one stop shop for all needs.

The Slim Profile Machete offers a slimmer blade and thicker handle for those tight situations whether it be your environment, backpack space or storage. The 16" black coated 1055 high carbon steel blade features a straight spine profile, unlike its curved brothers. The blade profile starts at 1.875" at the widest edge and tapers down to 1.5" at the handle. The orange injection molded handle makes gripping easy and comfortable with its ergonomic shape and textured handle.
