Description
CS97TKMS: 97TKMS Tactical Katana Machete
Cold Steel
 
The latest addition to the Cold Steel Katana Machete series, the Tactical Katana is closely modeled after the hugely popular and record breaking Warrior Series Katana.

With its deeply curved blade, it offers more "sword-like" cutting performance, and with its broad full tang, solid steel tsuba and injection over-molded high impact polymer handle its incredible durable.

We spared no expense to re-create the look of a traditional cord wrapped handle, fushi and kashira but using modern materials that will not shrink, warp, tarnish or rot and require very little maintenance to retain peak performance.

Fully sharpened in Cold Steel's Ventura HQ, the Tactical Katana Machete comes complete with a Cor-Ex back sheath for ease of carry and storage.

This thing is Diesel
When I was ordering this I was afraid it might be cheap & plastic-y... but it's not. Feels almost like a real katana, high quality polymer handle, steel guard, super strong blade. The blade is pretty thick but still has a tiny bit of flex to it. Definitely feels solid & quality.I chopped into some small dead trees with it, this thing's like an axe, without so much as a dent in the edge. I cut a small tree in half with this around 1-2 inches thick. Glides thru regular brush or plants. Serious cutting power. Thrusting power is no joke either. Can easily be weilded with one hand, not too heavy... it's a little tip heavy due to the light polymer handle but not too bad if you have some stregth. Some people were complaining about the bumpy handle (it's not wrapped it's just solid plastic). I had no issues with it... it is a little bumpy but that also improves the grip- there's no way this thing is slipping out of your hands. Anyway if it bothers you that much just wear some gloves ya pansies!My only complaint is I wish the sheath were a little more katana-like... but still a good sheath. Can't really complain for this quality at $40... thats the price of a mid range pocket knife, and you're getting a fully functional battle ready katana.Excellent cutting or beater katana if you dont want to mess up or sharpen your nice ones. Also great for trimming bushes & doing yard work! A lot more fun than a clipper!

Great blade, awkward sheath
Blade came sharp with fairly good fit and finish. The handle is pretty but the ergonomics are horrible. The sheath is made well, but rather awkward. Seems backwards.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Finish, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
NOT BAD FOR THE MONEY
Needed a machete and my son found this so here we are not bad it came sharp the sheath not crazy about but does the job and the handle material is plastic(polypropylene) which makes the whole thing feel kinda cheap still looking for a way to remedy that but overall it hacks like a machete should just makes ya feel a little bit ninja like when doing so.
