Constructed from a solid slab of stainless steel, this 23″ long coping-style machete features sawback serrations, a 13″ standard cutting area with a unique offset edge, and a small notch for easily cutting cord and wire. A 4 1/2″ cutout serves to help to reduce the weight and resistance acting against each swing. The handle is enhanced by sturdy hardwood inserts secured by two tang pins. A 3″ segment of paracord wrap makes two handed use simple and comfortable. The aracord unwound for an emergency situation requiring a length of cord. A matching cord lanyard extends from the lanyard hole set in the tang. This item comes with a black nylon shoulder sheath. Measures 23″ overall.
