This section of the website is dedicated to reviews of machetes and big choppers. Some of the knives listed below are technically not machetes, but they will clear and chop with the best of them, so for convenience I’ve decided to put them on this page. Basically, if it’s big and bad (and somewhat resembles a machete), I’ll put it here. At least until I get enough “true” machete reviews.
Sp what follows are all of my machete reviews, including reviews of some of the best machetes I have handled. I look forward doing more reviews on these kinds of knives in the future. I really enjoy testing and using larger fixed blade knives and I’ve had a number of people ask me to do more reviews on them.
If there is anything particular you would like to see me review in this class feel free to let me know by sending me an email or leaving a comment below.
