WP284: Woodman's Pal Military Premium Model 284
Woodman's Pal

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

The Military Premium model, also known since 1941 as the LC-14-B, is our very best model.

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.

Pros: Overall Quality, None
Cons: Weight, Blade Sharpness
Good universal tool.
It is different and does not excel at any one job, it does do many things quite well. The hand guard gets in the way when using the hook part of the blade but can be worked with.

Woodsman Pal
Well; first, these are the original and they are tough looking and the real deal. My best friend and I have been looking at these for a long time, and the recent promotional offer landed us the opportunity. They are very old school, but we think the will work on zombies just as much as the new styles (green handles) we see all over the place. There were some initial quality issues, I called the knife center and the company. The president and family owner of the company was very upset and wanted me to send these directly to him so he could inspect and correct the problem right away. He sent us two more that day along with a return label. The president wanted to see them personally and wanted us to be satisfied. So the company is a stand up company, and Knife Center is a stand up company and we are satisfied. I have only chopped down one bush, and it worked pretty good. We plan to go zombie hunting latter during this year's zombie season!!!
