Katana Machete Revamps a Classic Weapon & Makes it Deadlier

Cold Steel's Katana Machete is one of those weapons that Rick and friends from The Walking Dead will definitely wish they have when ammo runs out.

The Katana Machete is a mesh of the classic samurai weapon with the cleaver commonly used for agricultural purposes. The blade is reminiscent of the latter while there are hints of the former through the form of the hilt. It spans 19" long and has a modified Tanto style point which deviates from the style of the katana. The handle is fairly long and will facilitate one-handed or two-handed use depending on preference. This bad boy is incredibly sharp and can cut through bamboo and a pig with one slice. Watch video and see it in action. Stats for Hybrid Samurai Blades Trending: Older & Mild
