CR3100: 3100 Mah-Chete
Liong Mah was looking for a survival machete he could use in a variety of situations. So he designed one with a distinctive upswept overall shape that's both beautiful and functional. The 1075 carbon steel blade measures in at 0.18" thick and 12" overall, with a hammered finish. The 5.44" walnut wood handle features lanyard holes that allows for a forward carry that's secure—unlike the grass it'll encounter. Includes a well designed nylon sheath with articulating belt loop.

With designer Liong Mah designs, form follows function, and for this knife's namesake from Palm Bay, Florida, the Mah-chete is no exception. The Mah-chete is a survival machete that fits in your backpack, and is ready to tackle even the biggest reeds and grass, and every feature of this tool is focused on helping you conserve energy, for when you need it most.

Lanyard holes in the comfortable walnut handle allow for a secure forward carry, while the upswept overall shape maximizes cutting performance, and the hand ground carbon steel blade with hammer-forged finish is crafted to stay sharp. The Mah-chete comes equipped with a reinforced nylon sheath that has a drop down option so you can strap it to your leg. There's also extra paracord attached to the sheath for survival emergencies. Not that you'll be in them for long with this blade.

If you're searching for a machete that likes picking on grasses more than three times its size, the Mah-chete has your back in survival situations. It's a blade that's curved up to make brush go down hard.

One tough field knife
I use it as a all around camp knife, it handles all chores with ease. The edge was sharp out of the box, I tuned it up a bit with ceramic sticks. I feel it will serve me well for years hard field use.

I dont know why this isnt more popular
So I am not a big connoisseur of machetes. But it was between this and the pack golok form condor. I am very glad I went with this item. I have very large hands (my palm is over 4.5 inches wide) and this fits amazing. The overall finish is great and is a very well developed tool. It is well thought out and good construction. I use it for generally medium work, making hasty blinds, and clearing lanes. Ive also used it to take the ribs off of the spine of a few hogs, and it works very well. Holds a good edge and is easily sharpened. Well worth the price.

A little different
I really like this knife, it holds and handles a little different than other knives that I have, mainly just due to the handle's shape. The knife itself seems like a good knife so far, but the sheath is just pure junk. I've had it for about 2 weeks now and the grommets are coming apart. For the price, they could have a good leather sheath ( if Condor can, why can't Columbia River?). Be prepared to spend some time working on the edge. The 1 I received was all but blunt.
