For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has long been a knife of choice for the "Outdoor Working People." The Machete is used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores...It is also a popular weapon of choice is rural uprisings.

At TOPS, we have had numerous requests from clientele to produce a light, fast, practical and general use blade in conjunction with an enlarged comfortable working handle...A Machete...made entirely in the USA.

Our good friend and well-known designer, outdoorsman and writer, Joe "Shangoman" Flowers, collaborated with TOPS shop manager, Leo "The Lion" Espinoza on the design for a new machete. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability. The MACHETE .230 was born, and now by very popular request, a smaller version to use with virtually the same capabilities the same handle and a 10”inch blade, the Machete .170.

Vigorous testing in a wide variety of terrains has proved the Machete's superior field performance.

To complement the unique point on the blade and handle design, we custom built a ballistic nylon sheath with 1 separate (flap and buckle closure) accessory pocket. This pocket can hold an array of small tools--sharpener, compass, etc.--easily accessible.

Whether you are a SURVIVOR, CAMPER, KAYAKER, EXPLORER, or just a "JUNGLE KIND OF GUY,” the MACHETE .170 will be a powerful and useful companion.
