A machete? nah.... difficult to carry!
I use a machete almost daily. I keep a full sized machete in all my vehicles. I don't usually carry one while hunting but use one to clear my trails and shooting lanes. I do keep a short one in my turkey hunting gear to cut brush & palmetto fans when making a blind.
here is a sample of my machete collection. when I used to travel a lot to Latin America I would always buy myself a machete at the local hardware store. even if I wasn't going into the jungle, at least I had a weapon. these are my favorite "working" machetes.
the short machete on the bottom is the one I keep in my turkey gear. it originally looked similar to the other short machete in the picture. I re-shaped the blade, put a brass handguard and rosewood handle on it.
this is my military machete collection.
Well now that's neato blaster. Thanks for posting the photos.
Ok, you got me. I recognize, or own, all of the ones in your top picture, save one. What is that long, telwar/sabre, looking blade on the far right?
I've used surplus pistol belts for holsters and stuff since I first bought my first pistol.
I like that rig!
Thats my Ruger Old Army with a possibles pouch and an HBForge throwing knife.
I love that knife. It is a "do it all". Toy, skinner, cutter, bone breaker, machete. I sharpen it up first of each deer season razor sharp. Clean it good and then blue the steel and mink oil the handle.
Here is a better pic of the knife along with two HBForge tomahawks.
The OA is on my list. It’s not terribly high, but I’d have a hard time passing one up...
it IS an odd one and I have never seen one in a store. it was given to me by a friend that used it in his shark processing plant. I don't know where he got it. the label is long gone but it was made by one of the major Central American machete companies. (Coronetta, Collins or Imacasa) my guess is that it was designed to cut grass or hay.
You my brother from another mother? Think the same way little younger brother.
You guys are bad azzes IMHO. LOL The only machete I have is a home made one made from a wells saw blade that does sit on top the safe incase.
That blade shape definitely makes it look like a weapon. I have a decent collection of machetes, short swords and chopping blades from Chile, Argentina, Brazil, the Philippines, and Thailand, and several U.S. and British military machetes. Some are pretty unique in shape, but that one you have fascinates me.
Nice! I have a huge collection of knives but only a few machetes. I like that variety you have for sure.
My machetes are hung on the wall inside my garages and sheds just in case. Not necessarily to clear a path of weeds.
It seems we were taught to use hand grenades' to create an opening? The grenade is faster and much more effective than a "Big Knife",.
the blade is the same thickness as a regular machete so it feels kinda flimsy. my friend was using it like a fillet knife on big sharks..
