Product DescriptionThe first run of Kingfisher Machetes have all sold! We're working as quickly as we can to get them all out the door, but are filling orders in the sequence they were received. As such, orders placed around October may expect a delay of several weeks as we fill orders from when they first went up for sale.However, we're getting another run produced! Expected time of arrival is February 2019. All pre-orders for the 2nd production run are charged at the time the order is placed. Thanks for your patience!
A machete purpose-built for standing strong in uncertain times. Machetes have long seen use across the globe in times of crisis, but until now none have been designed expressly for this purpose. The distal-tapered high carbon steel blade is rigid and unyielding to pressure, and is long enough to offer advantageous reach while remaining short enough to be manageable in cramped quarters. The point of balance is just 3.5" in front of the American hickory handle, which features a full-length grip below the finger notch to accommodate small or large hands alike. Intended to be as economical as possible, so that you may feasibly afford to outfit an entire group, the Kingfisher is not furnished with a sheath, and is ripe for customization to make it uniquely yours.
As supplied from the factory, the Kingfisher sports a nearly-finished "courtesy grind" to speed the final sharpening process for the end user. If selecting the Special Grade option we will grind and hone the forward edge so that it is ready for action right out of the box. If selecting the Special Grade Plus option we will also perform this work to the partial back edge, which is otherwise unsharpened. Please note that the fine point of this machete is intended for penetrating cut-resistant soft targets, and is not intended to withstand prying forces or hard impacts with unyielding materials. Made with pride in El Salvador.
