Features:
  • Cut Dense Brush: The razor-sharp steel combined with the leverage you get from the 15"-inch blade makes it incredibly easy to cut through the thickest brush in the wilderness. 
  • Insanely Sharp: The 3CR13 stainless steel blade is sharp enough to slice through foliage countless times before it loses its edge.
  • Saws Through Branches with Ease: On the other side of the machete, we've added a saw with 56 bi-directional teeth. That means it cuts wood twice as fast because it cuts into the wood as you push and pull it.
  • Stealthy: The whole machete is coated in a matte black finish that doesn't reflect sunlight. 
  • Corrosion Resistant: The matte black finish combined with the 3CR13 stainless steel makes the machete's blade corrosion resistant. That means you can use it in any weather without fear that rust will ruin the blade.
  • Full Tang: The metal of the machete's blade extends all the way to the end of the handle, otherwise known as "full tang". This is the most durable way to build a slicing weapon. Its full tang blade is so reliable that it can cut through cinder blocks without breaking!
  • Comfortable Non-Slip Handle: The handle has a slight curve that fits your hand and makes it easier to hold even if you don't have much hand strength.
  • Lanyard Punch Hole:  You can fit a lanyard through a small hole at the end of the handle to hang it up when you’re not using it.
  • Ultra-Light: Weighs a mere 0.9 pounds. This makes it much easier to swing and use for an extended period of time.
Includes:
  • Essential Tact Machete 15" Dual-Sided Blade
  • Nylon Sheath (with blade guard)

What would you rather have a little pocket knife or a razor-sharp machete with a killer 15" blade? The machete is the clear winner, and you'll be glad it's with you if you're ever attacked by predatory animals or criminals.

Pros & cons

<b>Pros:<\b>

- Nice blade/saw for light use;

- Not too heavy if carrying around/backpacking all day long;

<b>Cons:<\b>

- Sheath shoulder strap/harness is weak and flimsy;

- not heavy enough for serious use, blade is too thin;

- Sheath won't last for sure as it gets roughed up each time blade goes in and comes out);

Ordered three, for our BOBs, but won't be first choice. Will still reach for my Hibben machetes first.

<b>Recommended:<\b>

No, not if you want a serious machete. Yes, if you need something light duty for a relaxed camping trip and don't expect trouble.

I like everything about this knife. My only concern is the sheath shoulder strap/harness, seems a little weak. Initial impression only, the strap may prove durable enough over time. Worst case, I can always replace the strap if needed.

NICE TOOL

I love the Machete. Solid . Works great on brush and the saw blade does the job. I highly recommend it.

If I had to ask for one improvement , it would be the sheath. IT is fine ...but after several in and outs the edge gets caught and starts to fray. This of course is minor. It would be great to have an option of leather or kydex. I realize this would add weight and cost, so I understand the sheath. I want to end on a very positive note...GREAT PRODUCT !!

Bad ASS!

After some research, I decided to purchase the Essential Tact Machete. It is everything described. The machete feels good in the hand. For reference, I'm 5'1"/107lbs and I feel comfortable weilding it. The weight is well balanced. The blade seems really sharp and the bi-directional teeth looks mean!

The black adds a toughness, ready for business. I purchased this for my emergency supply kit.

A male friend was impressed with it and ordered one on the spot! Will be ordering another one as a gift.
