Scorpion’s ultra-durable Dragon-Tongue machete has significant cutting/cleaving power. It’s uses are not only for cutting through thick vegetation, but also the perfect tool for hacking deeply into a zombie! The machete was originally developed in Southeast Asia, where they remain very popular today. Specifically noted for being the pattern the British Army used for its British Special Forces. The blade is crafted from well-tempered 1095 high carbon steel with a very thick and tough blade spine. The blade and tang together are a single piece of steel for maximum durability and the grip has the toughest construction possible with a full-tang grip made from two scales of black linen micarta directly riveted to a thick tang. Included is a sheath of thick black buffalo culatta leather with riveted construction.
