The machete has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, or smash just about anything you can put in front of it.
It can be used to kill both fish and game and will also field dress and prepare 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 the money.
These blades are made out of SAE 1055 medium carbon steel and are dipped in a special anti-rust solution before having a black baked on finish. Each machete comes with a good utility edge that will cut right out of the box and, with a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp. The handles are made out of polypropylene. They're designed to provide a comfortable secure grip, resist chipping, cracking or breaking, and to last practically forever.
The Panga machete is the standard machete for the entire African continent. Excellent for cutting thick brush and chopping down saplings and small trees. Makes a fearsome emergency weapon too!
