Hey guys, here is a machete that I just finished for a friend of mine. It was forged out of 5160 carbon steel, that's the same stuff that leaf springs on cars are made out of. The handle is Cocobolo and it has stainless steel pins that were peened over. This bad boy has some authority, this ain't no wimpy, flimsy piece of import that you get from... well... some factory in Asia.

It is a total 25in long, Blade is 18-3/4in long and 1-1/2in wide, The handle is 6-1/4in. It weighs 2Lb 4oz. The blade is just over 1/4in thick.

When I was thinking of a design for this machete I was kind of thinking of a Katana, which is a Japanese Samurai Sword. All I did was shorten it and I made the blade straight instead of the gentle backwards curve that the Katanas have.
