Both are made by the famous Swedish firm of EKA using Sandvik 12C27 steel. The T9 Knife (blade thickness 4mm, length 3-3/4") features a Tanto design blade and a Paracord wrapped handle that can be removed in a survival situation. The sheath has a belt clip. The Short Machete (blade thickness 3mm, length 12") has a 8 -1/4" sawback-style spine that is ideal for sawing small trees or notching. The sheath design allows the user to use the sawback feature while the Machete is securely stored in the sheath. Both are serious wilderness tools.
