97TKMS: Tactical Katana Machete (1055HC Blade)
Cold Steel Knives
The latest addition to the Cold Steel Katana Machete series, the Tactical Katana Machete Sword is closely modeled after the hugely popular and record breaking Warrior Series Katana.
With its deeply curved blade, the Tactical Katana offers more sword-like cutting performance, and with its broad full tang, solid steel tsuba and injection over-molded high impact polymer handle its incredibly durable.
Cold Steel spared no expense to re-create the look of a traditional cord wrapped handle, fushi and kashira but using modern materials that will not shrink, warp, tarnish or rot and require very little maintenance to retain peak performance.
Fully sharpened in Cold Steel's Ventura HQ, the Tactical Katana Machete comes complete with a Cor-Ex back sheath for ease of carry and storage.

Very good blade. Sturdy, sharp and all around well put together. I have used it extensively and so far no need to sharpen. It has held up to everything I have thrown at it to date.
This a great product! Straight out the box I liked that it's a bit heavier than my other C.S. 2 handed machete. I cleaved the cardboard box that it came in in 2 with no effort, I then tested it on a 1-1/2" tree branch which with 2 chops became two. I tested it out on a drawer that had a hardwood front, and the rest was particle board. This thing went through the hardwood and honestly that dang compressed saw dust crap exploded into good sized bits! I don't like the sheath, it catches onto the blade when I re-sheath the machete. The handle feels like it may slip out my hand with sweat, but para-chord is an easy fix. Great tool, great price, sturdy construction.
This Katana was way more than I expected and I love it!
The handle is not the most comfortable in the world. I suggest using gloves and it feels fine.
The tactical nylon sheath comes with an over the shoulder strap that is universally sized. If you are looking for a deadly weapon, like all Cold steel machetes, you can't buy a nicer one for the price.
