This centuries old blade style is very popular in Central and East Africa as well as parts of South America. This is because of its nearly inexhaustible, “all-around” versatility. It cuts, chops, and slashes like the best of them, plus, it possesses a sharp enough point to make it useful for piercing and performing more delicate utility jobs usually left to a smaller knife. It is available in 12 and 18-inch blade lengths.
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.
