Versatile. That, period, paragraph, is the only word to describe this machete. Perhaps you might keep one edge thin for the light vegetation and the other a little on the thicker side for the heavier stuff. Or keep both edges equally sharp so that when one edge gets dull after heavy use, you can flip it over and keep on going. Two edges beats one every time!
The machete has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will also field dress and prepare them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of th best bargains for the money.
These blades are made out of 1055 Carbon Steel with a tough spring temper and are surfaced witha black, baked-on anti-rust finish. Each Cold Steel® Machete comes with a good utility edge which, with just a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp.
The tough, polypropylene handles of our machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip and they are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking so they last practically forever.
