Burly machete sets new standard for backwoods utility.

CRKT® is releasing the Chanceinhell™ 16” and 18” survival machetes. Designed by Ken Onion of Kaneohe, Hawaii, to be tough, strong, and work like an ox. A thick, clip-point carbon steel blade available, like the name suggests, in either 16.1” or 18”, has a black powder coat that is durable in extreme environments. Built for hard use, it’s easy to sharpen after you've put the finishing touches on your handmade hotel in the woods.

Half the battle in any survival situation is with your own physical exhaustion. To combat that, the double injection molded handle is ergonomically designed to reduce hand fatigue and features multiple lanyard holes for varied grip options. The result is more efficient cutting action that’ll make thick brush R.I.P.

Both versions of this machete include a reinforced nylon sheath with a unique VELCRO® belt loop system that can be changed between two positions: dangling or snug against the belt. An extra paracord fob comes laced onto the sheath for emergencies or lashing this machete to a pack, truck, or pack mule.

Ken Onion set out to create a survival machete that would make the knives you see on survival shows look like they belong in bush league. One glance at these all-black, all-business machetes is reassurance that these knives will perform.

The Chanceinhell™ is the knife to grab for ensuring your own survival or that of a few Hollywood actors who are in over their heads.

The Chanceinhell™ 16” manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $69.99 The Chanceinhell™ 18” manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $79.99
