CS97HM: 97HM Heavy Machete
Cold Steel
If you were suddenly castaway on a desert island or stranded in the wilderness or a jungle, what's the one tool you would want at your side? The answer is a good machete. You see the machete, over the last three centuries, 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, filet, skin, quarter and butcher them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of the best bargains for hard earned cash in the world. In fact it's so inexpensive and useful that even the poorest peasant in South America or tribesman in Africa invariably owns one and counts on it as one of his most precious possessions.

These blade is made 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 this machete is designed to provide a comfortable secure grip, and they are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking, so they last practically forever.

The heaviest machete we make. The blade widens dramatically toward the tip for maximum cutting and chopping power. Ideal for those big tough jobs where you need all the help you can get.

Cold Steel Heavy Machete
I put an edge on it upon receiving and its good to go now. For the price you can't beat it! No scabbard included but I bought the one for it and it fits nicely.

Pros: Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
Very nice product
I use the machete to cut up branches when I prune trees. This allows me to load a lot more into my truck. I prefer a lower angle on the blade and grind the edge before I use it. This product is heavier than other machetes I have handled. I feel the extra weight helps with the cut. I find I can cut branches 1
