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.
The only thing wrong with these examples is that the distal taper is thinner than specification.
