Double Edge Machete (97PMS)
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.
After testing many blades around the world we decided that those made in South
Africa offered the best value and performance. These blades are made out of SAE
1055 medium carbon steel and are dipped in a special antirust solution before
being a black baked on finish. Each machete comes with a good utility edge that
will cut right out of the box and, with a little work, can be made hair shaving
sharp. The handles of our machetes are made out of polypropylene and permanently
injected molded around the blade's tang. They have been designed to provide a
comfortable secure grip and to last practically forever, as they are highly
resistant to chipping , cracking or breaking.
Versatile is the only word to describe this machete. Perhaps you might keep one edge thin for the light vegetation and the other a little on the thicker side for the heavy stuff. Or your may opt to keep both edges equally sharp so that when an edge gets dull after heavy use, you can flip it over and keep on going. If your life is in jeopardy those two sharp edges will make your machete into a virtual ?buzz-saw? with the ability to cut from any angle on the compass with a turn of your wrist. Two edges beats one edge every time!
