"Echo"- the predator sword khukuri, is a true east meets west blade. Designed by Daniel Murray-Lake to be a savage bush blade and a brutal weapon, when needed.
The primary focus with Echo is in being a powerful and durable bush blade, capable of felling small trees, splitting them down and processing for either firewood or shelter. Capable of battoning and digging when required.
The extra long full tang handle featuring Daniel's solar wheel cross keeper plate allows for one or two handed operation allowing the user a larger variety of grips and access to both power and control as needed depending on what the task requires.
As the main blade is quite large, a smaller blade was needed to allow for the finer utility work. The Karda is perfect for carving, meal preparation and other utility tasks. A Chakmak was fashioned out of a file for honing both the main blade and the Karda and also for fire making by striking flint or quartz along it's spine for sparks.
Finally, an outstanding feature of this design is it's Ambidextrous sheath. This allows for left or right handed carry and also for ambidextrous back carry with the optional accessory.
Whether in the forest, Jungle, mountains or combat, Echo is prepared for them all as a complete and functional package.

I got my Predator yesterday 6/13/19. It did take a while but it was worth the wait. I have not done a official test on him yet but --(LOL)-- I have done some Pruning of a tree. He is light for his size and handles VERY nicely. I am very very happy with my Predator. I have about 6 blades I need to do a review on but need to finish setting up my course. So more to come. If there are any of you sitting on the fence about getting a Predator. GET YOUR ASS OFF THE FENCE. Its worth every penny. You will not regret it.
