If you were suddenly castaway on a desert island or stranded in the wilderness or a jungle, what's the one tool you would want at your side? The answer is a good machete. You see the machete, over the last three centuries, has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, dig, crush, carve, whittle, crack or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. The machete also makes a deadly improvised weapon. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will gut, scale, filet, skin, quarter, and butcher them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of the best bargains for hard earned cash in the world. In fact it's so cheap and useful that even the poorest peasant in South America or tribesman in Africa invariably owns one and counts on it as one of his most precious possessions.

These blades are made out of 1055 Carbon Steel with a tough spring temper and are surfaced with a black, baked-on anti-rust finish. Each Cold Steel® machete comes with a good utility edge which, with just a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp. The tough, Polypropylene handles of our machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip, and they are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking, so they last practically forever.

There's no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It's true that the best Kukris, like our LTC and Gurkha models, can be somewhat expensive. While those "thoroughbreds" perform extraordinarily well for the money that they cost, it sometimes seems that what's required is a good, inexpensive, "workhorse" model. Our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. Its hard to find a more versatile knife than a Kukri. A stalwart ally in a tight spot and an indispensable survival tool, a good Kukri is truly apocalypse proof! Our Royal Kukri Machete presents the blades keen point at a new, non-traditional angle, keeping the cutting power that made the Kukri the stuff of legend, but increasing its thrusting and piercing power. The handle, with its integral guard keeps the users precious digits safe from harm while improving the balance and heft of the knife. Proven to be an outstanding multi-functional bush knife, the Royal Kukri Machete is capable of the toughest bushcraft chores. Its fully sharpened 1055 Carbon Steel blade (with rust resistant baked on matte black coating) is equally at home clearing brush and undergrowth or dispatching wounded game, it also provides the comfort of a dependable last resort self-defense option.
