The Ultimate Machete Selection
Machete knives are one of the most popular and widely used knife styles on earth. These large, cleaver-like knives are used by many in the agricultural or forestry industry to harvest crops and clear brush. They are also issued to some military personnel because of their heftiness, which enables them to not only be used as a utility tool, but also a self-defense weapon. BUDK.com offers a wide selection of machetes in a variety of styles including kukri, sawback, cane hook, tanto, jungle and combat.

Review of: War Hunter Sawback Machete with Nylon Sheath
Great weapon! I bought five of these beauties. Blade is long, strong, durable, dependable and sharp! Handle is comfortable in hand. One of my favorite aspects is the serrations which run along the top of the blade. As if the blade's sharpness and strength were not enough for phenomenal stabbing/piercing/slashing, the serrations will surely finish off any adversary with over 15 inches of deadly ripping power. Again, it's a great weapon and now it's only $10! YOU WON'T LOSE!
Review of: Colombian Survival Bush Machete with Heavy Duty Nylon Sheath
Just arrived and I love it. Had it engraved which looks fantastic. The handle gives superb grip with the balance of the blade. It's rather sharp out of the box but it could stand to use more for razor sharpness. I got mine on a $10 deal but it's still worth every penny at regular price. If this is your type of knife you must buy one.
Review of: Combat Commander Thrax Gladius / Gladiator Sword
I waited 3 months for this sword to come back into stock and it was well worth the wait sharp well put together
Review of: Gil Hibben IV Combat Machete Knife
I once reviewed this knife about four years ago (the review is still there). I still have the same one I bought. Since I bought it, I've put it through some tough work, which was what I wanted it for. Guys, I can still shave the hair on my arms with it, yet it hacks into just about anything I do with it. When I need something to pair with the chainsaw for clearing and downing trees, I have this knife there. It's been four years and I still turn to this knife when I need something of this heft. It is simply fantastic.
Review of: United Cutlery Combat Commander Full-Tang Gladiator Sword
Even though this is nominally a machete, it is in fact a far better sword than anything else in it's class. It is better made and more comfortable to use than the other well known gladius made by that other famous discount sword/knife company. It is a better sword than any of the other 'real' swords I own that are 8 times the price of this one. The 1065 steel holds a better edge, and the blade is resilient, but not whippy. Everything is straight and solid. If you are on the fence about this, know that for the money, you will be getting a sword/machete far exceeding the small investment you are making.
