Cold Steel
The Cold Steel Garden & Camp Machete is Cold Steel's interpretation of a much-used agricultural tool from Africa. Cold Steels President Lynn C Thompson has used them for many years, building blinds and hides and cutting grass when prepping shelters during his time hunting in Africa. He was impressed by their simple, utilitarian design and he soon realized that he always made sure there was at least one of these tools on hand before embarking on any prolonged hunting trip. It therefore made a lot of sense for him to begin exploring his own version of this African tool for an international audience.

Incredibly intuitive to use, the Garden & Camp Machete is a quick study in economy of motion. By slightly bending your knees and leisurely swinging the machete with a back and forth motion, you can make short work of many cutting tasks.

Use it to trim the grass and weeds from your garden, or as a lightweight and handy cutting tool to clear brush from camp sites, hunting blinds and shooting lanes. Use it as a probe in long grass to look for obstructions, obstacles or varmints. In a last ditch self-defense situation the Garden & Camp Machete is lighting fast, with exceptional reach and a formidable cutting edge that can strike from many different angles.

Its strong, sharp and long double edged blade is super lightweight and a breeze to carry and use all day. Throw it in the trunk of your car, hang it from the back door of your cabin, keep it near your tent when camping or lash it to your backpack. You’ll find you quickly can’t imagine leaving the house for an outdoor adventure without one!

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
Very handy machete for wacking weeds and high grass around the property or yard. Lightweight and easy to swing. Wasn't very sharp on arrival but easy to put an edge on. No sheath. Good value for the price.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Does the Trick
I wish the handle was large enough to use to handed. Other than that, it was a GREAT substitute for a stubborn to start weedwacker at the beginning of the season. All the neighbors were jealous. Way more useful for normal yard work than a regular machete. No sheath.

Used in the yard, and it worked pretty good. For the price you can't lose. Knifecenter is the only place that has this tool in stock.
