Woodman's Pal

A Unique Tool Offering Optimum Performance, Usefulness and Power, Artful Beauty In Its Handiwork and a Proud History In its Design

This blade cuts branches and wood up to 1-1/2” in diameter with a single stroke. Its unique sickle hook slices through stubborn vines and briars and removes unwanted sprout growth at ground level.

The Woodman’s Pal is a brush axe/machete that can perform the tasks of many tools including machetes, axes, hatchets, pruning saws, pruning shears, pruning knives, bow saws, loppers, Bowie knives and for certain jobs, even chain saws. It allows you to trim, prune, blaze trails, brush out lines, remove unwanted growth and build duck blinds.

Designed in 1941 in Pennsylvania by Artist and Engineer, Frederick Ehrsam of Victor Tool Company, these unique high quality tools continue to be made right here in Pennsylvania, with only USA made raw materials.

These All-American tools are made of the highest grade American steel and the best American ash wood by dedicated Pennsylvania craftsmen, and those craftsmen’s precision and attention to detail are testaments of their commitment to our USA Pride: Build it once Build it right.

Today, the Woodman’s Pal is still praised by forest and land managers, surveyors, campers, hikers, hunters, soldiers, handymen, scouts, fishermen, gardeners and any outdoorsman or woman.

Nylon Sheath

Heavy density 1800 denier waterproof cordura nylon with nickel snap and rivet, belt loop and convenient Velcro closure with honing stone. Finished with a Woodman’s Pal® logo patch, this is an excellent alternative to leather.

Like none other, made in USA
I love this tool, it's versatile and more durable than anything you'll get from a typical hardware store (or even some hunting outfitters anymore). Lifetime warranty, I own three of them and I give them out as unique gifts. Can buy them anywhere, just ask for it. Does not go dull easily.
