For hundreds of years, people have been surviving utilizing machetes as a source of income, food, shelter, and self-defense tool. TOPS designer Leo Espinoza took that tool and preface, combined with a kukuri and bolo, and put it on steroids with a highly flexible impact resistant steel. The bushman, explorer, or outdoorsman can use it for long periods of time, without handle fatigue due to its very comfortable, indestructible handle ergonomics.
Whether using it to clear a trail, build shelter, or for military or survival applications, this is definitely an important tool. Hacking and whacking, it makes short work of most anything that gets in its way.
