Made from tough rigid 1055 carbon steel with a strong spring temper, it's virtually unbreakable and offers the weight forward balance necessary to chop through vines, saplings, and brush and even trees with ease. What's more, its sharp point offers plenty of belly for slashing or even skinning, and in an emergency, adds to it value as an improvised self defense tool. Sold fully sharpened, and shipped with a sturdy nylon sheath, it's ready for your jungle wherever it may be.

Cold Steel jungle machete
Overall I like the machete just at the handle was too slick hard to hold onto when chopping other than that it was a good machete

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: None
I have 4 other machetes, two of them CS. They finally got the handle right! A quick wrap of F-4 tape for stickiness and away we went. It rolls forward in the hand just right, with the slight knob on the end of the handle giving nice retention on the impact bounce to set up the next swing. Enough weight to breeze through the 1 inch or smaller stuff, light enough for a backhand return slash on the light stuff. Edge retention is great, churches right up with bastard file and stone. I swing chainsaw, axe and machete a lot. I will be ordering a couple more of these. Bonus: It comes with a sheath!

Cons: Finish, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Probably the best all around machete for the price.
This machete has lots of power, isn't too big, isn't too heavy, it has a nice handle,not quite as good as the barong, but still a nice handle. Definitely a machete to own. Holds a great edge.
