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
# 17 CS97THK

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!
