I wanted a compact knife that could do big knife work for my trip down to the Amazon in 2013. The distinctive curved shape makes the Piranha easy to carry, even in dense jungle, and gives it extra leverage and a strong mechanical advantage, so that even though it is small and nimble, it can power through big cuts. The tip can also be used for delicate work by using a pinch grip. This blade and a machete were all I used for two weeks in the jungle. Just like it’s namesake the piranha is small, sharp toothed, and fierce.
