George Washington Sears was a man ahead of his time. He is often attributed with the birth of ultra-light camping, and in the 1880s wrote periodically for 'Forest and Stream' magazine under the pen name 'Nessmuk', who was a Native American that he knew as a child.

His name has been given to a style of knife with a characteristic hump and was used by Washington Sears for slicing and skinning in the main, preferring to chop with a small axe. His three cutting tools were the Nessmuk, a small axe, and a folding knife.

Brisa has prioritized slicing to chopping with this grinding angle. If you intend to use the Nessmuk for heavy chopping, our recommendation is to add a second bevel approximately 16 + 16 = 32 degrees.
