*Custom USA Handcrafted Knife*

This build is inspired by the literal translation of the Hmong words “Tsov-Tom”: tiger-bite. The story goes…tiger-bite is often used as a name in the form of a curse word in the hills and mountains of SE ASIA because when you call someone a tiger-bite, you curse for them to get bitten by a tiger. Be careful of what you speak of in the wild…

Like the bite force of a tiger, at more than 1000 PSI, the TigerBite is crafted with heft and a razor edge making this knife is a super rugged mid-size chopper.  We spent lots of hours and love on this tiger. See specs below.
