SPD Edition Wenger Blades Wiglaf

Overview

The SPD Edition of Wenger Blades' Wiglaf. A superlative, modern belt hawk. Compact, capable, versatile, excellently designed and individually custom handmade by Dave Wenger for PDW.

This belt hawk is named after the heroic character Wiglaf who is a key figure in the classic epic poem Beowulf. This belt hawk like its namesake is most notably characterized by capability and courage against great odds. This belt hawk is a highly capable, modern wilderness tool. Even with its compact size, it is big enough in functional stature to handle bigger jobs in the back country and round camp. Special design details include a bearing block divots on both side of the blade head, extra 550 paracord wrap which can be unwound and used for bushcraft needs, a micarta handle with our signature orange liner, pry tip handle end, hammer poll, and deep cut out behind the beard to choke up when this hawk is used for skinning. The SPD Edition Wiglaf is nicely finished with a custom Sagewood Gear edge cover and belt hanger.

"The Wiglaf tomahawk is in a class of its own. There is no other woodsman's tool on the market that is as capable and packs as much of a punch as it can. Combined with some skill, there is hardly a task it cannot accomplish. It's the tool you want with you when the proverbial dookie hits the fan in an emergency or just when you're out camping with friends."
