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.

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.

  • Chisel sharp sickle hook slices through stubborn vines and briars, and removes unwanted sprout growth at ground level.
  • Line of balance runs precisely from the grip through the sickle edge creating a natural momentum for efficient, accurate and comfortable swinging motion.

  • Safety toe, extending one inch up the axe-side of the tool, reduces risk of deflective injuries

great product and customer service
The machete is very well made and is exactly what I expected. What very much surprised me is that before they shipped it to me they called me. I was told that the nylon sheaths they had received from their supplier were not up to their standards. They wanted to know if I minded if they upgraded the sheath to the leather one at no additional cost to me. Wow, proactive customer service. 2 thumbs up to KnifeCenter.

Woodsman's Pal Model 284-NS
Haven't used the product yet, waiting for it to cool off a little down here in Florida! Bought the product for clearing brush, vines, etc. on my property and to use while camping. I have no doubt from the quality that it will more than exceed my expectations. I have two machetes but they are too light to tackle some of the brush I have to clear so I decided to go with a more professional grade product. Can't wait to use it!!! The only thing that I see that might be an issue is the safety toe at the end. I understand why it is there but if it becomes an issue I can easily modify it. Overall it is a quality tool!
