NEW FOR 2016! 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. Although the “Americanized Tanto” is known primarily for its combative application, 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.
