After requests for a light, fast, and practical machete piled up, TOPS took note. The result? The .230 machete. Now, based on even more feedback, the .230 has been made even more portable. Enter the .170 machete: a 15-ounce, 17-inch-long fixed blade that can slice through a coconut just as fast is it can hack through brush and branches. For the 10-inch blade, TOPS elected to use 1095, a steel with excellent toughness and edge retention when put under strain. For the handle, the company kept things simple and effective with micarta, offering a nonslip grip in wet conditions. The overall package is streamlined and easy to wield, like you’d expect in any good machete. Carry it in the field or in the jungle with the black ballistic nylon sheath.
