For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has been a knife of choice for the "Outdoor Working People." Machetes are used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores.
We received numerous requests from clientele to produce a light, fast, practical machete, made entirely in the USA. Our good friend and well-known designer, outdoorsman, and writer Joe "Shangoman" Flowers, collaborated with TOPS shop manager Leo "The Lion" Espinoza on this design. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability.
The Machete .230 was born. Vigorous testing in a wide variety of terrains has proved the Machete's superior field performance. To complement the unique point on the blade and handle design, we custom built a ballistic nylon sheath. It has two small pockets on the front that can hold an array of small tools - sharpener, compass, etc. Whether you are a survivor, camper, kayaker, explorer, or just a jungle kind of guy, the Machete .230 is a powerful and useful companion.
