means “digging”), the knife has a heavy steel blade that is dished, with a serrated edge on one side and a sharpened edge on the other.
Hardwood handle. Available with either a carbon-steel blade or a rust-resistant stainless-steel blade. The stainless knife has graduations and an extra-sharp blade. Each comes with a belt sheath and is approximately 12" overall.
