Karen Hood Chopper

Karen Hood Chopper

The Karen Hood Chopper from CRKT is the ultimate all-around survival knife. Swing it a few times while chopping branches for firewood or clearing brush, and you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with heavy hatchets or machetes. The KHC’s 9-inch recurve blade is made of powder-coated, high-carbon steel. While the shape focuses the power of your swing into one optimal chopping point, the ergonomic handle provides an easy, comfortable grip. Plus, it weighs in at less than one pound. The knife’s designer, Karen Hood, is the owner of survival.com and a global leader in wilderness survival. Her design for the Chopper comes from decades of experience in the outdoors. When Karen Hood goes into the wilderness, this is the knife she wants by her side. Now, CRKT wants you to experience the future of survival knives for yourself.
