If you were suddenly cast away on a desert island or stranded in the wilderness or a jungle, what is the one tool you would want at your side? The answer is a good machete. Over the last three centuries, the machete has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, dig, crush, carve, whittle, crack or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. The machete also makes a deadly improvised weapon. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will gut, scale, fillet, skin, quarter and butcher them for the table as well. And when you look at its price, it has to be one of the best bargains.
These blades are forged out of 1055 carbon steel with a tough spring temper and are surfaced with a 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 these machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip and are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking. They last practically forever.
There is possibly no single-edged blade that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It is true that some of the best Kukris, like Cold Steel's Gurkha model, can be somewhat expensive, and while that "thoroughbred" performs extraordinarily well for the money that it costs, it sometimes seems that what?s required is a good, inexpensive, "workhorse" model.
Cold Steel's Kukri Machetes are those workhorses, ready to plow through the toughest chores life can dish out. They feature the distinctive weight-forward balance of the "top-of-the-line" models and always present their edge on an angle so they are guaranteed to "bite" deep with every stroke.
They are a solid value, ready for long, hard work and are safely and securely held in a sturdy Cor-Ex™ sheath.
