TOPS Knives Machete .230 15-3/4" 1095 Carbon Blade, Black Micarta Handles, Nylon Sheath - MAC230
TOMAC230: Machete .230
For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has long been a knife of choice for the "Outdoor Working People." The Machete is used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores...It is also a popular weapon of choice is rural uprisings.
TOPS has had numerous requests from clientele to produce a light, fast, practical and general use blade in conjunction with an enlarged comfortable working handle...A Machete...made entirely in the USA.
Their good friend and well-known designer, outdoorsman and writer, Joe "Shangoman" Flowers, collaborated with TOPS shop manager, Leo "The Lion" Espinoza on the design for a new machete. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability. The Machete .230 was born.
Vigorous testing in a wide variety of terrains has proved the Machete's superior field performance. To complement the unique point on the blade and handle design, we custom built a ballistic nylon sheath with 2 separate (flap and buckle closure) accessory pockets. These pockets can hold an array of small tools--sharpener, compass, etc.--easily accessible. Whether you are a survivor, camper, kayaker, explorer, or just a "jungle kind of guy,” the Machete .170 will be a powerful and useful companion.
**Also available in a 10" model, the Machete .170.
