TOMAC230: Machete .230

TOPS Knives

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.

Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Weight
great machete
This is a great machete , a little lighter than expected ( with it's pros and cons), very very sharp but with a durable edge. The sheat could be better for this price. Only for the sheat I gave 4 stars!
