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.

More details of the handle material would have been nice. It feels a little weird but overall quality is great.
