We've prototyped a whole host of different short bladed Machete shapes over the years, but the Tanto remains one of the best we've tested. it also makes an excellent multi-purpose bush craft blade.
In our tests the Tanto Machete cut and pierced exceptionally well while remaining tough enough to endure hard use. Its solid full-tang construction and hard wearing weather-resistant polypropylene handle only add to its durability and functionality.
