Cold Steel’s historically inspired sword / machete hybrids are firm fan-favorites. The Chinese Sword Machete is no exception! Similar in look and design to the record-breaking Chinese War Sword, The War Sword Machete has a super wide, deeply curved blade and tough one-piece full-tang construction with over molded polypropylene handles for maximum durability. Plasma cut from expertly heat treated 1055 carbon steel and then hand ground and sharpened here at the Cold Steel HQ in Ventura CA; the Chinese War Sword Machete has amazing cutting power. Supplied with a Cor-Ex back sheath, this beast of a machete will actually out-perform many swords on the market - and at a fraction of the cost!
