Forestman PRO (Yeti)
The designer >>
Daniel Linstromberg is an Eagle Scout, hiker, avid outdoors-man, and knife collector. He wanted a blade that was heavy enough to chop well, but light and fast enough to bushwhack and use for hours without fatigue. He wanted the blade to be a worker, and that is what was created. There were many blades he tried, each with their merits, but none that were exactly what he desired. He took aspects from other designed he liked and dismissed the aspects he did not like. This design is a true middle ground from his favorites. There may not be a true "one tool option," but this is close to it.
It is the improved version of the famous light series of KHHI the “Forestman (SLEEK)” kukri. The same blade is fitted but with an even better fitting grip and nicer looking handle. It gives the user a solid and very comfortable feel and thus the blade becomes more effective. The handle is fitted with L-key set up and thus is very durable. New ALL black leather sheath (no wood inside, Western style) is supplied for the blade for very easy usage and great look.
Forestman PRO, titled as “Yeti” by the designer is a superb working khukuri knife having a well balanced and effectual blade (main benefit of the knife) with a very easy and comfortable handle which becomes a must when it comes to going to the forest or any wilderness. The knife is easy to carry and use which is the main feature of the knife. The effortlessness and effectiveness it can deliver is its ultimate strength. The Forestman (Yeti) is definitely one heck of an all-out all-purpose utility knife that becomes like an extension of your arm when it comes to cutting.
