The KA-BAR Cutlass Machete 1248 is a medium-sized machete. A combination of a broadsword and the famous Kukri blade shape. This KA-BAR Cutlass Machete has the same Kraton handle you have seen on other KA-BAR knives and feels very comfortable in hand.
The blade, with its royal belly, is made from 1095 carbon steel. Not stainless, but easy to sharpen. More important: it can handle quite a lot. It is exactly what you want when you are using a machete such as this. You use it to move yourself through dense vegetation, or to cut through small branches. To cut through thicker branches or trunks it is best to use an axe or saw.
The KA-BAR Cutlass Machete comes with a leather sheath to always keep it close.
