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.
