CS97THM: 97THM Two Handed 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.

Some big cutting jobs are often best handled by using both hands and that's where the Two Handed Machete comes into its own. Its long polypropylene handle and tough 1055 carbon steel blade give you the leverage to cut down small trees as well as thick brush and tangled vines. Weighing just under two pounds and measuring 32" in overall length, it's light and compact enough to lash to your pack and is a natural to stash in your vehicle, boat, or airplane. In a self defense emergency, the Two Handed Machete will also double as a highly effective sword. It's light enough to be swung with either one or both hands.

When your chainsaw fails...
We got one of these as a joke a few years ago saying " the new tool for the Zombie Apocalypse." I kept it in the back of the truck for a while just in case we needed it for clearing small brush or whatever. One day, we started clearing out some trees with a chainsaw and wanted to use this for hacking some limbs off. The guy that brought the chainsaw snapped the chain and had to run a good 15 miles into town to get a new one. Only having one tree out of EIGHT, we cleared the limbs and sat waiting. I got bored and just started baseball swinging this bad boy at one of the trees. It stuck in pretty well and came back out pretty easily. So...I kept at it. After about five minutes of swinging, we had another tree down. After about an hour, we had six trees down. About that time, our buddy got back with a new blade and some lunch...and noticed we only had two more to go. Now all the sizes ranged from 4in (total circumference of 12inch) to 8in...but we were able chop our way through what we needed and chainsawed the rest. Of course we saved the big trees for the saw, but we were still impressed on what this thing did and the abuse it took. was gone. One of the younger guys took off with it further down the trail and didn't bring it back. About that time it was getting dark and we had to get back. The next day...still didn't find it. I almost broke down and bought another one, but never got around to it. About a year later, we found it. Damn thing still works pretty well. I would say it was well worth the money I paid for it. Sure, there are better tools out there, but this one is pretty good...especially for the price.

A wicked machete!
This thing is pure medieval. One can do some serious damage with this machete!!! I bought the Heavy Machete scabbard for it and had to add a snap to the rear loop (to make it 1/2" longer) to accommodate the handle and now its protected nicely.
