Savannah Slim 18.5 All Purpose bushcraft survival knife compact Machette
The seme aka the lion sword, is the go-to edc knife of the maasai people (plains of kenya/tanzania/south sudan). They use it for everything from. Balanced well enough for throwing. Light enough to use all day. Small enough to carry on your belt or in your backpack. Big enough for good leverage, and chopping/hacking. Fast enough should you need it to be. We first handled a seme when we were given one as a gift from someone we trained, before they went to do mission work. We were immediately impressed. It was made from scrap metal, and melted down soup cans, held together with goatskin, and sinew. In spite of this, it was a great blade. A testament to the ingenuity and tenacity of people making the best tool they could, with what they had. It is the accumulation of 100’s of years of r n’ d. Things that were great.

Added leather wrapped handle. This item is made of 1095 steel and high carbon, leather.
