This 14.5" EGKH Freedom Machete Knife is One of the most fascinating knives produced by EGKH. The sheer look and mass of the knife is good enough to send a chilling message to the opponent. Freedom is an awesome, powerful cum deadly weapon that would give a devastating outcome in its single blow. Therefore it must always be treated with extreme care and respect. “Freedom”
Freedom has 14.5 inch mean looking and power packed blade that has the ability to crush a target in one single blow. The weight is concentrated more in the upper portion of the blade to maximize force and thus impact when swinging. It is also a stabbing knife as it has a straight shape and forged very pointed towards the tip area for that very purpose. A layer/fuller (chirra) forged in the centre of the blade works as in I-Beam to withstand the impact or pressure felt by the blade in hard blows when using. A built in Guard from the shape itself is made to protect the user’s hand from slipping towards the sharp blade. It has a buffalo Horn handle built in “Panawal” version. The full flat tang handle has multiple rivets cleverly done to support the heavy blade. An extended tang with a lanyard hole is also forged (as seen in the photo) to facilitate a wrist cord. Freedom comes with an ordinary black buffalo hide sheath for carriage. Lanyard loop tip (for thigh leather string) and a strap button in frog (for easier carriage) are fitted to aid easy movement while carrying the knife in waist.
