You can buy a good brazilian machete for $12.00 and there suppose to better than the more expensive American ones , but I was thinking would a wakazashi be a better purchase. I know there more money but there also pretty beefy. Just in case I encounter some zombies or I have to go Elli on someone when the SHTF.

Find a old Chevy/Ford/Dodge Truck and Remove one of the Leaf Springs in the rear. Get yourself a good grinder and go to it.

Kukri...

Smaller package, same uses ;)


Mine was made by Balisong (now Benchmade), I really want the real deal made in Nepal :)

You can get the 3 Chirra (The beast) khukuri from knivesbyhand.com. I got one from him. The knife is a work of art.

I went with a Ka-Bar Kukri machete (http://www.amazon.com/Ka-bar-2-1249-9-Ka-Bar-Black-Machete/dp/B001H53Q8A) to go with my BOB instead of carrying both a fixed blade utility knife and a hatchet.

Go with a good machete or Kukri.

Wakazashi's were not really meant for hard labor.

The knife is post #3 is a Pacific Cutlery Balisong Model 760 "Bushmaster"---I got mine in the mid 80s---never have seen another one until now---really neat knife, but not as big as a real machete. Mine is still new, been using a really cheap Cold Steel machete all these years---just a bit of sharpening and good to go.

A friend passed it on to me when he got out of the Army in '86. I continued to use it in the field until I got out of the Army in '92. I too have never seen another one in person. It really gets folks attention when you start hacking on stuff with it :eek: :laugh:
