Cold Steel’s historically inspired sword/machete hybrids are firm fan-favorites. Same for the Chinese Sword Machete! It has a super-wide, deeply curved blade and tough one-piece full-tang construction with an over-molded black polypropylene handle for maximum durability. Plasma cut from expertly heat treated 1055HC carbon steel and black baked-on anti-rust matte finish then hand ground and sharpened by the manufacture. The Chinese War Sword Machete has amazing cutting power. Comes with a Cor-Ex back sheath with shoulder strap, this beast of a machete will actually out-perform many swords on the market - and at a fraction of the cost!
