Cold Steel's Katana Machete offers a 19" long blade with a modified Tanto style point. Heat treated to a tough spring temper and a black, baked-on anti-rust finish, it comes with a good utility edge that can easily be fully sharpened. To facilitate one or two-handed use, Cold Steel has paired the blade with a long handle, complete with a sturdy cross guard. Injection molded over the blade's tang, and further secured by two thick bolts, it shrugs off hard knocks and defies the elements. 35 1/2" overall. Cold Steel, 97THK

This katana/machete is an amazing tool and weapon> I have used this on my youtube channel Dakotachops and it went through 2 gallons easy-must buy
Do I really need to say anything...c'mon....c'mon
This is pretty neat and I suggest on adding this to your collection if you are into usable weapons or want at least one you can abuse daily.Like most said this isn't a Katana due to the blades shape and how long the handle is. I don't care if the handle is extra large and the same size as the blade itself. I was hoping for it to be close to a pole arm but it isn't. It is more like a sword than anything else.It is strong carbon steel that won't let you down. It isn't skinny like most blades and comes by as sharp as it needs to be. I will not suggest to sharpen this because most hand sharpeners don't match up the angle of the blade. Mine didn't came bent but the blade it break threw the cardboard a bit. I tried it on a box and love how easy it went though it. Reason I am giving it a four instead a five is because of two things. One it isn't as large as I would have hoped and the other is that Cold Steel had to put a sticker on the blade itself.
No complaints at all I'm of decent 6ft frame and this is easy to wield. A lot of people didnt like the handle length but that's how I prefer mine so idk depends on preference. No complaints, cuts through just about everything but ice (don't try that I had to grab a sledgehammer to bend it back) which was a testament to the blade given how difficult that was. This and the extended Kukri amaze me both capable of felling small trees and splitting cinder block slabs. Cold Steel delivers (:
Fantastic sword. Extremely comfortable, very sharp, great weight and balanced. But if you normally use a traditional katana the won't exactly fit what you are used to.
Just got it today, great weapon, well balanced, best thirty bucks I spent on something
I purchased this unique blade, because I didn't want to mess up my real katana, while chopping up things in the backyard. This thing is awesome and very well made. It will destroy pretty much anything in it's path and keep going. I don't really consider it a katana or a machete... but it IS a sword, and a really great one for the price. If you want a backyard workhorse, this is your sword.
this is gotta one the best bang for your buck! You will not be disapointed. its realy shap out the box. It did grate on the test cutting. As for the tire i used the 97THK on well the tire did not last long.
One of the best buys I will ever make, besides the blade being much shorter than expected and looked weird compared to the overly long handle it is FANTASTIC. It will stab, hack, chop and slice basically anything up to firewood! The blade itself is THICK and immediately you can tell how well it was made as well as the quality of the steel;I must say I treated it quite roughly even threw it into my fire place but the sword remained exactly as it is!
This is a beast at first i did not really like it beacause it felt kind of strange but after a while i relized how awesom it really was i stabed all the way through a steel grill very well made great for the cost i would foe sure buy it agin its a great peice of work but the stiker on it is a pain im still working it off so thats why i gave it 4 stars
Fun stuff. Came sort of jagged sharp but it didn't take long to smooth that out and give it a sweet edge. I'd recommend this, great price for a fun throw around machete.
the blade came with a fine edge. i liked how it felt when i slashed into brush and sticks. i've had it for a few months now and i think its the best machete that you can get for anywhere near the price. it did bend a little however, but thats only after a tree fell on it (a tree it cut down). GREAT BUY, im already getting another
This thing's a monster! It's got an awesome balance to it and is wonderful for hacking through just about anything. The blade came rather jagged, but I actually ended up preferring it as such. It gives it a much rougher, saw-like feel. Definitely an excellent purchase for the price!
ordered this sword on tues got it on thurs. great shipping time. nice look although more for utility than show. probly gonna wrap some 550 cord around the handle though, sweaty hands can slip easily. would be great for close combat, nice reach but i can also choke-up a lil if i dont have the swinging room. will be shopping hear again - semper fidelis
Just got it today, purchased two, one for me and one for my boyfriend but now I'm thinking of keeping them both! Structurally sound, perfect size and light enough to dual wield! All around a good buy, the only think I wasn't too crazy about was the giant sticker directly in the blade itself lolz, nothing a little work wont fix ^_^
I have had this for several months now and used it on a variety of brush and sticks. As a machette goes it is great. Cutting green brush is what this was made for and it does it better than most of my collection. The handle is about 8" to long. It had a decent edge when I got it but it will shave a hair or slice paper now. I cut the handle down and it is much easier to use now. I have abused it a little bit and it seems very tough.
I beat the hell out of this thing: I cleared a 1/2 mile path in dense forest with trees/branches up to 2" - 2.5" diameter. It's still mostly sharp, 4 small knicks in the blade but amazing considering the punishment I put it through, still able to cut through branches. The handle is long and great for strong swings, even if you cant get through the target first hit, it can act like an axe almost. Definitely worth the purchase: very sturdy, sharp, practical.One complaint, although it isnt with this product directly, the sheath is HORRIBLE and is purchased seperately. This machete itself comes with a cardboard cover, but you would be better off making your own plastic/cloth sheath.
Just received my Katana Machete yesterday, and I have instantly become a fan of Cold Steel. If this is what they give you for $24, I can't imagine what their more expensive stuff is like! It's much sturdier than I had thought, and the blade is certainly heavier than most machetes I've handled. My blade also came extremely sharp. It doesn't have quite the cutting power as my real Katana, but its not very far off, especially considering the money. And, its much more durable than practically any sword out there (how many swords can take repeated, full force swings into trees?). A great buy!
Really cool mine came sharp and was happy when I saw how wide the blade is. handles great and arrived like two days after placing my order cant wait to order from TrueSwords again!
