For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has been a knife of choice for the "Outdoor Working People." Machetes are used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores.

TOPS received numerous requests from their customers to produce a light, fast, practical machete, made entirely in the USA. They enlisted the help of well-known designer, outdoorsman, and writer Joe "Shangoman" Flowers, who collaborated with TOPS shop manager Leo "The Lion" Espinoza on this design. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability.

The Machete .230 was born. Vigorous testing in a wide variety of terrains has proved the Machete's superior field performance. To complement the unique point on the blade and handle design, they custom built a ballistic nylon sheath. It has two small pockets on the front that can hold an array of small tools - sharpener, compass, etc. Whether you are a survivor, camper, kayaker, explorer, or just a jungle kind of guy, the Machete .230 is a powerful and useful companion.

    Very nice!

    Posted by Mcb on 19th Nov 2015

    This arrived yesterday and I must say I'm very pleased. My initial thought was it seemed a tad short, but after getting a feel for it now it feels just right. The size and balance in the hand seems perfectly suited to my stature, medium build and height. The overall finish is high quality, the coating on the blade is nicely done and the Micarta handles are nicely finished. The grey blade, handles and red inserts made for a very modern looking knife. The sheath is great quality also, very usable and maintains rigidity when returning the knife. Has some pockets and a survival whistle too. The factory edge is sharp but not razor sharp, which for a machete is what you want really. Highly recommended.!

    By all means get one

    But you could get almost 10 Tramontina machetes for the same price. At over £100 clams, I'd be scared to chop anything with this.
