Appalachian Trail Machete
Appalachian Trail Custom Machete
This blank pre-shaped billet blade is perfect for customizing. Forged in Fire fans will love that it is very shape-able to grind, sand or change the perimeter to your desire.
(Saves bounding and anvil time)
What is unusual about this blade is that it makes a great canvas for the creative and serves a largely neglected group of trail blazers, hikers and deep woods hunters. A custom "one of a kind" design handle with a fully functioning outdoor blade is highly desirable.
"My real life experience hunting in the thickets of Northern Minnesota and getting lost in moose tracks I wished to God I had a blade to cut my way through the thickets." - Doug Metzger
The blank is coated with titanium and is made of a 1084 carbon steel. To drill the handle you will need a metal drill bit. Blade length 14" and handle 4 1/2" 2 mm gauge. Flexible but sturdy. Semi-Sharpened so you can work on these easily.
