My buddy Todd Hunt, (T.M. Hunt Custom Knives) sent me one of his new M14s. It is a scaled down version of his M18 Machete, which for those unfamiliar bears a resemblance to the Russian Spetznaz machete, but with more specialization and refinement. The M14 features the same compound grind with a more acute blade angle portion, and the more robust striking edge. An interesting tool, and one I am just beginning to figure out.
