Columbia River (CRKT) Mah-chete Satin Drop Point Plain With Sheath
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. A walnut handle with lanyard holes allows for a forward carry that's secure - unlike the grass it'll encounter. 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.

I got carried away processing wood and broke our family tool. Didn't want the std K-bar, so after some research, I chose the Mah-chete. Day after UPS dropped it off, I went back to the same wood that broke my previous tool. I chopped, hacked, made kindling. It was excellent in every way. Chopped like my Estwing. Batoned my way through several 5-7" pieces of maple with ease. Wood just flies apart. My only complaint is that I would have had a rougher texture on the handel. Maybe cryton/zytel. After a day of hacking, just had to touch-up the edge a little.
This is an updated design of old world styling. Man does this thing chop down anything in its path. Great @ stabbing too... One of the finest machetes I have ever to have the pleasure of using... This should be in your collection from cutting the cheese to loping the heads off zombies... Get one...
