These are real machetes made from 1075 steel with proper and traditional machete heat treat. We designed the handle to give some protection for your fingers that just isn't present on most machetes. This allows us to bring the edge all the way down the blade, so that the knife can do bushcrafting chores such as notching with ease. In addition, the khukuri style bulge in the handle allows for chopping with the hand in two positions using varying amount of wrist snap. We currently make them in 12” and 14” blade lengths. The 12” model has a 3mm thick blade that is tapered from edge to butt, while the 14”er is made from 2.2mm thick steel.
