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.
After testing many blades around the world we decided that those made in South Africa offered the best value and performance. These blades are made out of SAE 1055 medium carbon steel and are dipped in a special antirust solution before being 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 of our machetes are made out of polypropylene and permanently injected molded around the blade’s tang. They have been designed to provide a comfortable secure grip and to last practically forever, as they are highly resistant to chipping , cracking or breaking.

Have you been looking for a machete with extra reach and leverage? Perhaps something with a more traditional style blade and handle? Then Cold Steel has the tool for you! Our Latin Style Machetes are available with with eighteen or twenty four inch blade lengths. With their non-slip, shock absorbing rubber handles, they are perfect in almost every environment fom the jungle to the forest or even on the farm.

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, Materials
Cons: None
Great value for the money. Good length for reaching out & touching things that need to be cut. Blade is made of pretty good steel, but it is a little too flexible. Overall it is a good user.

Pros: Materials, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Weight, Handle Material, None
First of all, great service from KC, promptly delivered, all the way to New Zealand, thank you. I needed a machete for clearing on my very thick and overgrown section, backing to a reserve. This requires constant care since everything grows quickly. The Cold Steel is sturdy and with enough edge to get started, although it will require a little work to get up to standard. I did contact KC after making a mistake in my conversion but it had already been dispatched. The '24 is too long to be practical, and without a counter weight at the handle end, as a wrong weight ratio to be able to swing and hit comfortably. Since I'm happy with the blade. I'll end up cutting the handle off to reduce the overall length and add a wooden 1 1/2 hand handle.
