The "Mapuche" people, also called "Araucanos," inhabitants of Chile, in their original "Mapudungún" language, referred to the cougar or "mountain lion" as the "Pangui." Designed by Walter A Matthews to be carried around the neck, it features a natural finish 1095 high carbon steel blade, walnut wood scales, and a handcrafted welted leather sheath with ball chain.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
