This machete is based on the Anglo-Saxon (and Viking) saxe (scramasaxe, sax) fighting knife. Made by Cold Steel, the saxe machete is one of a selection of historical and ethnographically inspired machetes with modern 1055 blackened carbon steel blades, polypropylene grips, and cordura nylon sheathes. Sharp, rugged, and ready for all of your chopping and brush-clearing needs - they are way spiffier than standard military-issue machetes, with blade configurations that have proven themselves for centuries. These are no longer in production, remaining examples are on closeout.
