Cold Steel has prototyped a whole host of different short bladed Machete shapes over the years, but the Tanto remains one of the best tested.Although the Americanized Tanto is known primarily for its combative application, it also makes an excellent multi-purpose bush craft blade.
In 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.
