The Cold Steel All Terrain Chopper is one serious chopping tool. The 21.5" blade is made from 1055 Carbon Steel that will handle tons of solid impacts and take an extremely sharp edge. The blade's unique design puts the balance forward and places additional mass behind the "sweet spot" on the blade which assists the user when making chopping cuts. The extended handle is also a great benefit when putting in serious work. The combination of the extended handle and the excellent blade profile mean that there is very little that can stand in your way when wielding this machete. The weight distributing carry system means that the All Terrain Chopper won't wear you down when carried in the field.
