This Tactical Wakizashi Machete has an 18" tanto blade with a black anti-rust finish. Cold Steel's Tactical Series of machetes was inspired by the Warrior Series Tantos, Wakizashis, and Katanas. This new tactical line offers improved strength and sharpness with high-grade materials and streamlined tactical design. The blade and tsuba are made from solid 1055 high carbon steel for corrosion resistance and edge retention. Injection molded full tang handles provide a secure grip that is extremely weather resistant. They recreated the traditional Fuchi and Kashira cord wrapped handle with a durable polypropylene that will never warp, tarnish, or rot. A Cor-Ex sheath rounds out the impressive tactical design.

  • Injection molded handles with a traditional Japanese design provide a strong and secure grip.
  • 1055 High Carbon blade steel offers maximized strength and edge retention.
  • Black baked on finish for rust and corrosion resistance.

This knife is so much fun. I got it because it looks awesome but it also performs. I live near a marsh so I mostly use it to cut down reeds and marsh grass on my property. Does a good job and it looks cool when I'm using it. For under $40 why don't you have one?

Just a note. I purchased 2 of them. They did not come sharpened. I will have to see how the are when the are sharp. A little disappointed. The cold steel website says they have to sharpen them before they ship them to you. Just a heads up. Lonnie
