The ESEE Junglas II is the ultimate knife for anyone who thinks a machete is a little big but is still looking for a knife they can use to chop with. This second incarnation of the Junglas is similar to the original Junglas. The difference is that the Junglas 2 has a blade that is 2 inches shorter, approximately 5 cm. As a result the ESEE Junglas 2 is a little more manageable, while you still have more than enough blade length than with an average fixed knife.
Where many machetes are barely sharp enough to cut with, the Junglas 2 is razor-sharp when it is delivered. And it is nice and heavy to make chopping incredibly easy. The micarta handle is large and ergonomically sound. It feels somewhat rigid which is great for grip and comfort. If necessary you can easily remove the handles.
ESEE Junglas II: made to be used
The steel on the Junglas 2 is made from 1095 carbon steel. The extremely sustainable powder coating on the blade helps to protect it from the increased rust sensitivity of the carbon steel. The amazing utilization properties guarantee a life of fun. The back of the Junglas has been enhanced with a wide opening for a lanyard and is also great to use as a hammer.
ESEE Junglas II: straight from the Columbian jungle to your doorstep!
The ESEE Junglas was originally designed for the Brazilian jungle police. They were looking for a machete that was a little more sturdy to make sure it could also be used as a fixed knife. Today the Junglas is also used throughout Latin America by counter-narcotics officers who spend a lot of time in the jungle, but worldwide also by adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts who appreciate a large and sturdy knife.
This edition of the Junglas II comes with a luxurious kydex sheath, with MOLLE-compatible back.
