CS97TMSTS: 97TMSTS All Terrain Chopper
Cold Steel
The shining star of many of our recent performance tests, our All Terrain Chopper will out-cut many Machetes, and even put some swords to shame! The sheer cutting power harnessed within the All Terrain Chopper's big, wide, slant-tipped, fully sharpened blade has to be seen to be believed! A well-placed swipe from this powerhouse of a machete will lay waste to almost any obstacle the wilderness may lay before you. Worn either slung over the shoulder or across the back in its weight-distributing carry sheath, the All Terrain Chopper is surprisingly comfortable even when worn for extended periods of time.

Several of our crew members put our carry sheath to the test by wearing the All Terrain Chopper all day while working in our warehouse, training in our gym and going about their usual daily activities. Despite the size and heft of this Machete, all reported back that they found the All Terrain Chopper very easy to wear and that they quickly forgot they were even carrying it!Exhaustively field tested in Australia by Lynn C. Thompson the All Terrain Chopper proved to be a stalwart hunting and wilderness survival companion. More than just a machete, and the next best thing to an axe, it packed astonishing chopping power into an easy to carry package.

A great addition to a load out, the All Terrain Chopper delivers superb performance when you need it.

ATC Chopper
Aloha, I'm using the Chopper as a training sword, like the Condor Dadao that I also have. The balance of both swords are pretty similar. I'm using the Ymaa Chinese Saber DVD, and slowly learning the 25 basic saber techniques. The Chopper has a textured hilt that helps with my grip after an hour of sweaty training. It is very blade heavy and takes strength and concentration to do multiple overhead blocks and slashes. This is weight training with a purpose, and good exercise for me. The scabbard is ok and securely holds the Chopper, and the shoulder strap looks sturdy, too. But my main use will be as a trainer, along with the Condor, so I won't be hauling it outside. Take care of yourself.

Chop chop!
This is a large and solidly made machete with a nice sheath. It has a well-sharpened edge and just plain looks bada$$. I haven't used it yet but I'm sure it's up to handling any brush or small branch chopping that doesn't require an axe instead. I own the two-handed Cold Steel machete as well as other of their products and have been satisfied with them all. I wanted a machete that would last and not fold under pressure and that's what I got.

Hack & Slash Delight
I was looking for a good, all purpose machete to go the extra step beyond the 21" Latin machete already in my tool shed. I saw the price of this one and paid heed to the many favorable reviews and bought it. This monster has more than paid for itself with the work its done in my yard. It'll slice weeds like butter and trim small branches with ease. I've even used it as an axe to hack apart smaller sized branches of mesquite wood with little more than a few dings and notches on the hefty blade. It beats the Latin machete hands down, mainly owing to the extra weight and thickness of the blade. It's probably one of the best bangs for the buck, as far as landscape clearing tools are concerned. It's easy to maintain - I clean with soap & water and sharpen the blade using metal files and a dual grit sharpener before storage in the sheath. The anti-corrosion paint job keeps the rust at bay, but I still add a smidgen of oil to the exposed blade metal. The downsides to the All Terrain Chopper are that its a bit heavy for the less brawny folk, it ain't purdy, and the sheath is cumbersome to use, but for my needs, this beast is great for its utilitarian value alone.
