Description
CS97LHM: 97LHM 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 cheap 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 blades are 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 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.

This is the heaviest machete that Cold Steel makes (with the exception of the Two Handed model), providing the maximum work with every swing. The blade widens toward the tip for maximum cutting and chopping power.

cold steel makes the best machetes
I have had this model for 8 years and have used it regularly. I use it primarily to chop tree branches into 12" lengths for kindling. It has an excellent balance for this purpose, and I have used it also to cut standing saplings up to 2 or 3" thick. When it needs a touch up, I sharpen it with a standard file. An excellent all purpose machete.
