This original full tang utility piece is designed to do the job. The handle has been recessed for a secure grip, preventing rolling. All edges have been rounded over so as to not to be sharp, this obviously excludes the cutting edges. An integral thong hole allows the addition of a para cord if so desired.
The rear of the tang can add as a breaking device for a car window or similar application. Simple, functional and elegant.
