MMHW Mineral Mountain Hachet Works MMHW Small Harpoon Knife
Mineral Mountain Hatchet Works small harpoon with one of my Kydex sheaths.
I mount/piggyback a lot of ESEE AH-1 Arrowheads to my sheaths for emergencies and I've always thought it was a bit small for the purpose of lashing to a stick and using to take small game or for protection. Plus I wanted something to strike my fire steel besides my knife. I have bought some survival harpoons from different makers and they were either to big to small or crap material. I asked Ted at MMHW to design a small and large knife/Harpoon and he did not disappoint!
This is the small at 4-1/4" overall and a 2-1/8" blade with barb. The harpoon is 3/16" in thickness and just under 1" at widest point. These are made from 5160 high carbon steel that has been parkerized.
This will make a great EDC knife but I would grind off the barb first. I will do it free just let me know.
