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.
A reliable workhorse machete, the Magnum Kukri can out-chop and out-cut knives with far larger price tags. The Kukri's 17-inch blade features the same distinctive weight-forward balance as Cold Steel's top-of-the-line models, helping it handle the toughest chores life can dish out. The blade edge is also presented on an angle, so it's guaranteed to "bite" deep with every stroke. As a result, the machete is ideal for clearing fields, chopping tall weeds, and cutting through dense branches. Also outfitted with a sturdy polypropylene handle, the Magnum Kukri comes with a sturdy Cordura sheath.

Good tool. Needs sharpening but I used it to clear an acre of thorns, scrub and small weed trees in a few hours.Published 2 days ago by Mark A. Henry
Cold steel now shops these in a thick plastic bag with no annoying blade sticker. The edge grind still sucks so be ready to work on it. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Richard B. Tucker

Wicked blade, especially for the price. Kukri blades are excellent for chopping wood as well as plenty of other bushcraft activities as they are top heavy which makes chopping much... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Gary

It has the weight, length, and shape to do a terrific job of hacking through brush and shrubs. Yes, it does need a bit of work on the cutting edge before you use it, but that is... Read morePublished 28 days ago by les lannom
