Some big cutting jobs are often best handled by using both hands and that’s where our two handed machete comes into its own. Its long polypropylene handle and tough 1055 Carbon steel blade give you the leverage to cut down small trees as well as thick brush and tangled vines. Weighing just under two pounds and measuring 32″ in overall length, it’s light and compact enough to lash to your pack and is a natural to stash in your vehicle, boat, or airplane. In a self defense emergency, the Two Handed Machete will also double as a highly effective sword. It’s light enough to be swung with either one or both hands.

List Price: $ 21.99

    Where else can you find this much fun for under $13?, February 15, 2005
    By

    I bought one of these for my brother for Christmas. He opened it and I’ll tell you this was THE gift.

    The blade on this thing is over a foot long and a lot heavier than I would have expected. Straight out of South Africa, a country that knows what a machete is supposed to taste like, this thing was only what I would call marginally sharp.

    We immediately took it outside for preliminary tests. We put a Pepsi can that was about one quarter full on a post. My brother gave a one-handed horizontal swing. The top of the can landed about twenty feet away and the bottom half sat there looking like it didn’t even move. Not bad, thought we.

    Then came the throwing test. We started by throwing it at the wood shed, but the release was bad and it just flew over the top. Bummer. We picked it up and headed over to the junk cars.

    We settled on a very tasteful tan 1984 Chevy half-ton pickup. The front driver’s side fender was slightly bent, so that’s where we laid on the pain, though I thought we should have gone for a windshield. My brother laid it low with a full strength swing. The blade punctured the fender, leaving a gash about four or five inches long. It took little effort to free the blade, and at that time it was revealed that there was little or no damage to the blade and the edge was hardly dulled. There was also no damage to the fiberglass handle.

    Bottom line is this thing is the real deal. With a little effort with a file and perhaps a stone you could put an edge on this thing that would make me not even want to hold it, much less get on the business end. I think my brother summed it up best by saying, “you can’t even get into the fair and go on a ride and eat a chili dog for thirteen bucks.”

    An Absolute Beast of a Tool, August 23, 2007

    I own some heavily brushed and treed properties that were in need of clearing. In looking at the design of the Cold Steel two handed machete, it seemed like a superior concept to a traditional machete, so for $13, I pulled the trigger figuring that even if it sucked, I wouldn’t be out too much.

    HOLY GEEZE AM I EVER IMPRESSED BY THIS THING!
    Brush, saplings and limbs don’t stand a chance. I wound up clearing a trail in 2/3 the time it would’ve taken me with an old fashioned machete. Passes that would’ve required multiple strokes with a conventional machete were taken care of in one fell swoop with the two handed machete. Just one swing and it all comes down…

    Another consideration for people who can’t or don’t use firearms for self defense yet find themselves hiking in lonely places is that this puppy would be an absolutely devastating hand to hand weapon. I would go so far to say that a full impact by this would probably impart a wound substantially more lethal than any gunshot I’ve ever seen. I certainly wouldn’t take one to a gunfight, but if I had to choose between being shot by a pistol or taking a hack from this monster, I’d choose the pistol every time.

    I now have one that lives full time in my truck, one that lives full time in my shed and one that lives full time at the cabin.
    Great, great tool.

    A one handed machete is useless compared to this one!!, September 15, 2010
    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Cold Steel Two Handed Machete with Polypropylene Handle (Sports)

    I bought a one handed a normal one handed machete a few years back for clearing away brush, vines, for when I go trail riding. I sharpened it to a fine sharp edge also. It worked ok, but it took a lot of work for the woods that I cut through. Last week I took on the task of cutting a fresh trail through some pretty gnarly woods.

    Not only were there vines, but small trees that were 2 inches in diameter, briars (ouch!), and Alabama Kudzu. If you don’t know what Kudzu is, it is one of the wildest vines that runs EVERYWHERE that isn’t kept or maintained & its THICK. Well after my 1st day my hands were blistered & my forearms were very sore from the whacking I did. I had to use a small saw to cut through the small trees.

    Well I found this two handed machete & it peaked my interest. The handle was unusually long & the blade is actually short at a little more than 11 inches. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a whirl.

    I purchased it & sharpened it with my drennel tool with the grindstone attachment. I took it out & used it.. THIS MACHETE IS AMAZING!! The design is simple but ingenious at the same time. The long handle serves as better force & leverage for power. The blade is short but wide. The width of the thin blade mimic a machete with axe like properties. It’s like an “axe/machete hybrid”.

    When swinging with a downward diagonal angle, it cut down through those two inch trees like a light saber. It can also be used for cutting through thicker trees with hatchet/hammer like swings. This is VERY Important because I made the mistake in trying to make a power swing through 4 inch fallen tree that blocked my trail. My swing made it more than halfway through but got stuck & buried. I felt like King Arthur trying to extract the Excalibur sword from the stone trying to remove it. Finally got it free after a few minutes.

    Also be very careful with downwards swipes at low brush & downed trees. There can be buried rocks that you can hit that can chip the blade. This happned to me a couple of times but luckily this blade is durable & I was able to sharpen these areas. It has an worn “executioner’s ax” look to it now. Be very careful with your power swings because it generates enough force to not only cut through thick brush & trees, but it will also come back towards you or you can sling your shoulder out of place with the extra momentum & force.

    Buy this tool!

    Two Handed Katana Machete

    Have you ever longed to pick up your expensive, high performance Samurai sword and run amok through the woods stabbing, cutting, chopping and…

    Two Handed Panga Machete
    If you like the look and cutting power of our traditional African Panga Machete, you’re going to love the two handed model.

    Two Handed Kukri Machete
    Our two handed Kukri Machete offers so many advantages as a tool or weapon that it’s hard to know where to begin when attempting to describe them.
    Two Handed Machetes
    Some big cutting jobs are often best handled by using both hands and that’s where our two handed machete comes into its own. Its long polypropylene handle and tough 1055 Carbon steel blade give you the leverage to cut down small trees as well as thick brush and tangled vines.

    Heavy Machetes
    The heaviest machete we make. The blade widens dramatically toward the tip for maximum cutting and chopping power. Ideal for those big tough jobs where you need all the help you can get.

    Panga Machetes
    The standard machete for the entire African continent. This one is excellent for cutting thick brush and chopping down saplings and small trees. Makes a fearsome emergency weapon too!

    Bolo Machetes
    Known throughout Asia and Pacific Rim, the Bolo Machete features a “fat” point that shifts its weight forward where it can do the most good when heavy chopping or slashing is called for. It’s an excellent survival tool and will open a coconut or chop down a tree with equal ease.

    Double Edge Machetes
    Versatile! Is the only word to describe this machete. Perhaps you might keep one edge thin for the light vegetation and the other a little on the thicker side for the heavy stuff. Or your may opt to keep both edges equally sharp so that when an edge gets dull after heavy use, you can flip it over and keep on going.

    Kukri Machetes
    There’s no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It’s true that the best Kukris, like our LTC and Gurkha models, can be somewhat expensive. While those “thoroughbreds” perform extraordinarily well for the money that they cost, it sometimes seems that what’s required is a good, inexpensive, “workhorse” model. Our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses.

    Latin Machetes
    Have you been looking for a machete with extra reach and leverage? Perhaps something with a more traditional style blade and handle? Then Cold Steel has the tool for you! Our Latin Style Machetes are available with eighteen or twenty four inch
