Hikers prefer compact, lightweight, and highly functional tools. The Vertebrae Fixed Blade is ideally sized for such requirements. It is as rugged as any full size knife with a full tang 7Cr17MoV blade, rubberized grip, and glass-filled nylon sheath. Yet measuring at only 6.4 inches long, it is compact enough to squeeze into a backpack and go.
The smaller sibling to the larger Spine, the Vertebrae is intentionally-sized for hikers and climbers who want to ensure that any added weight is worth it. The blade is ideal for quick tasks on-the-go and is easy to stow on the lumbar strap of a backpack. Not your average combat fixed blade, this knife is hard-wired for outdoor adventures. Vibrant colors are easy to spot at the campsite or on the trail. The grippy, textured handle feels secure in hand when working through kindling, rope, or opening up trail mix. The oversized lanyard hole handily accommodates multiple sizes of rope, twine, or carabiner.
