Baryonyx Knife Company
The Baryonyx Machete is the culmination of years of experience and careful design refinement. The Baryonyx (meaning "Heavy Claw") is one of the few machetes on the market designed specifically for use in the North American temperate zones. The stock edge is tuned for rough "survival"-type use and performs quite well under a litany of chores in the backwoods or around the campsite. This machete was featured for a large spread in Knives Illustrated and is manufactured by Condor Tool & Knife in El Salvador.
Intended as a versatile do-all, the tool is loaded with features that quickly become apparent in use. The primary edge is used for the bulk of your general chopping tasks and features a continuous curve to the edge for rocking or drawing cuts. The back hook gives a sickle like blade for cutting grasses, brambles, woody stemmed plants and any other target that would be prone towards slipping off the edge of a conventional blade. The bifurcated tip allows for a usable point for detail work, a striking zone for batoning or a handhold for draw/push-knifing, and acts like an extension of the arm for pushing brush out of the way. The symmetrical handle allows either edge to be used in the forward-facing position depending on the needs of the situation and is long enough to be used two-handed if desired. Comes with large lanyard hole to allow you to add one for safer handling and includes an instruction sheet and a high quality leather sheath.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
