The Backpacker was designed with light weight in mind for the backpacking community. At only 2 oz. this knife is perfect for throwing in your backpack or strapping to your gear for a hike deep into the woods. Unwrapping the handle gives you 36" of emergency 550 paracord. Repairing tents, backpacks or making splints and tourniquets are just a few tasks this cord can do. A Kydex sheath is attached to the lanyard so it won't be lost. Eyelets on the sheath allow it to be strapped to your gear or add paracord to make a neck knife. This knife is 7-1/8" overall with a 2-7/8" blade. Made of 1095 high carbon steel this lightweight beauty really cuts!
