There are machetes and there are MACHETES. The Kingfisher Machete from Baryonyx Knife Co. is definitely the later. This purpose built machete is a whole lot of steel for the price.
From Baryonyx Knife Co.:
A machete purpose-built for standing strong in uncertain times. Machetes have long seen use across the globe in times of crisis, but until now none have been designed expressly for this purpose. The distal-tapered high carbon steel blade is rigid and unyielding to pressure, and is long enough to offer advantageous reach while remaining short enough to be manageable in cramped quarters. The point of balance is just 3.5″ in front of the American hickory handle, which features a full-length grip below the finger notch to accommodate small or large hands alike. Intended to be as economical as possible, so that you may feasibly afford to outfit an entire group, the Kingfisher is not furnished with a sheath, and is ripe for customization to make it uniquely yours.
The Kingfisher Machete is available for pre-order now BaryonyxKnife.com.
