Work Tuff Gear Proper Chopper

WorkTuffGear Proper Chopper is the biggest in the Nomad line of blades that includes the Nomad Camp Knife, Nomad Field Knife and the Nomad EDC designed by Zeke Menacho in a collaborative work with Victor Lin from WorkTuffGear that completes the Nomad Collection.

WorkTuffGear Proper Chopper is a cleaver-shaped apocalyptic blade with an attitude for defensive tactics against zombies, aliens and wild animals that give you a hard time. It is comparable in size to MyParang Golok 135 and MyParang Duku Chandong 12″ Heavy model except that the Proper Chopper is a little heavier but surprisingly wieldable.

The Proper Chopper seemed bigger in the photos and video posts in the social media but just a tad bigger than the Nomad Camp Knife in the hands. It’s almost one has to choose between an all-rounder Nomad Camp Knife and the hard-hitting beast of a Proper Chopper. However, the blade stock of the Proper Chopper is 6.67mm (0.26″) thick and the Seax influence made the blade looks like a bad-ass chopper!

Victor Lin from WorkTuffGear collabrated with many renowned knife-designers and makers to offer first-class knife designs to the masses with great fit and finish that offers a small production run for their blades that sold out in minutes.
