The Potbelly was designed by Steve Johnson of Johnson Adventure Blades. He describes it, “IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A KNIFE THAT WILL DO ALL THE HEAVY STUFF, BUT ISN'T TOO CUMBERSOME FOR THE DETAIL WORK, THIS IS YOUR HUCKLEBERRY. MADE IN THE USA!!!”
The Potbelly is a hard-working knife that no camper or adventure trekker should be without. It has a 7-1/8" long, ¼" thick, 1095 Cro-van blade that is hollow ground to a razor edge with a deep belly and weight forward balance that rivals’ hatchets in terms of chopping power. With some influence from the kukri and machete, the Potbelly is best described as what you get if you crossed a scalpel and a sledgehammer. The Potbelly is a controllable big knife. Its multi-position handle is textured with proprietary Adventure grip so you can easily control it for tasks as delicate as field dressing if necessary.
