El Choppo

Un cuchillo chingón

El Choppo


If you have the huevos to wander the narrow street of the barrio late, late at night, when tequila worms dream in the bellies of snoring whores, you can sometimes hear slurred songs stumble out the doors of certain cantinas, songs in the style of the narcocorrido, that tell the tale of the knife, El Choppo. Forged in the high mountains to a family that looked up to dirt, El Choppo was raised thwacking at banana trees and cane, chopping kindling for the stove, and fighting back a forest avowed to reclaim all fields.

However, it became clear from an early age that El Choppo was destined for more than the work of a common machete. With a soul etched by acid, and a stout, 17-inch blade, El Choppo, like many a great blade of character, used whatever means were near to hand to hack out an empire. Did he intimidate? Of course, hijo, he was a two-foot long knife! Mutilate? Go ask the cabrón who once gave him the finger. And worse? Those who might say no longer have tongues in their mouths, and those who would judge him should, as your abuela says, never judge another knife until you have ridden in his sheath.

El Choppo has a spine of 5160 steel and ships sharp as a snake bite in a Kydex sheath.
