The Thai Machete represents the culmination of over 4 years of development and refinement. Like the Thai swords that inspired it, our Machete is beautifully balanced, with a keen cutting edge and a sharp tip. Though most commonly seen used in pairs when practicing traditional Thai fighting arts, these long curved blades are amazingly versatile. Light enough to swing one handed, but with a long enough handle to employ a two handed grip for extra leverage and cutting power. The Thai Machetes wide blade and curved cutting edge make it an excellent brush cutter. Slicing grass, vines and light foliage with ease. Its fully sharpened blade is made from the same tough 1055 Carbon Steel as the other blades in our incredibly popular Machete line up. It's tough polypropylene handle has a flattened oval grip that wont twist or turn in your hand, while its steel reinforced guard offers extra hand protection. Fully sharpened right here in our Ventura HQ, the Thai Machete comes complete with a Cor-Ex sheath for carry and storage.
