The Steel Will Druid 230 is a lightweight machete. The blade is made of 9Cr18MoV steel. This type of steel looks a lot like 440C and AUS10. The steel runs through the entire handle for added strength. A small piece of this steel comes out at the back of the handle which is suitable to be used as a hammer. The blade width is 4.8 mm pretty slim for a knife of this type. This also explains the low weight of only 320 grams, which is very light for a machete. Ideal to take with you on longer trips when you don't want to walk around with too heavy luggage. The handle of thermoplastic elastomer comes with grooves for extra grip. The Druid 230 comes with a leather belt sheath.
