Premium Woodman’s Pal #284
First Designed in 1941, the Woodman’s Pal Tool has been included in military and civilian survival kits ever since. Originally called the LC-14-B by the U.S. military, the Woodman's Pal is now referred to as "Survival Tool Type IV". The U.S. Army even commissioned a booklet called "Fighting with the Woodman’s Pal" to instruct soldiers on the method of it’s use in hand to hand combat. Whatever you call it, the Woodman's Pal Survival Tool is a tough, no nonsense piece of essential survival gear. The Woodman's Pal is made of specially annealed 1/8" thick steel. The Woodman's Pal Tool is then hardened to Rockwell C-47 and has a resin bonded fluorocarbon coating to prevent corrosion. The Model #284 Woodman's Pal Tool is 17" in length and includes the leather grip and finger guard. This Woodman's Pal is the same version that the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marines currently purchase. Choose between a black cordura sheath with a honing stone or a leather sheath. The manufacturer provides a lifetime warranty. Weight: 24 oz.
