The Brakimo — pronounced BRAH-key-moe — is named it in honor of the Matis Indian tribe of the Amazon jungle.
Joe Flowers, who designed the blade, is the owner of Bushcraft Global, a survival school that often leads him into the jungle. Lacking a flagship knife for his company, Joe fashioned the Brakimo to fit that need.
The Brakimo is intended for use as backup to a machete or main camp knife. It has a fairly wide blade profile combined with TOPS’ modified Scandi grind that gives it great cutting and splitting power.
