The Hoodlum by Buck is built for ultimate survival. Based on Ron Hood's design and built to Buck's quality standards, the Hoodlum helps ensure survival in extreme conditions. It is light enough to carry in a sheath, but heavy duty enough for any task out in the wilderness. The handle is built with a Shock Mitigation System (SMS) to alleviate shock and wasted energy when chopping. It has a large finger choil for providing control while whittling or other detailed activities. A groove is cut into the blade spine for scoring bone, bending wire, removing pots from a camp fire, or other small tasks. Also, the Micarta handles can be removed to create a spear by lashing a branch to the tang of the blade. There is a cavity under the scales that could be used to store survival items. There is an integrated hammer and lanyard hole in the butt of the handle and it comes with a heavy duty nylon sheath. The Hoodlum will serve all your survival needs from protection to food prep while out in the wilderness. It has a green coated blade with notched thumbrest, .227" blade stock and 1.475" blade depth, full tang construction with black linen micarta scales and red liners. Comes with a black nylon sheath and original box and papers. Comes with a custom Red Feather Kydex sheath. Has a couple light scratches, otherwise excellent condition.
