If you live in a heavily wooded area and you like to go on off-the-map explorations, a machete is an indispensable tool to have. But, a discerning knife enthusiast knows that some blades are made far more superior to others. Well, the folks at Tops Knives are responsible for making some of the best of the best. And their take on the machete – aptly named El Chete – is no different.

Featuring a high carbon 1095 steel blade, measuring up at 12″ long and 1/4″ thick, this surprisingly lightweight knife was designed to demolish wood. And this less than 2-pound hacking tool is attached to an equally formidable sandwich-layered black and green micarta handle that offers up superb grip in just about any conditions. El Chete also features the brand’s new Acid Rain blade finish, which ensures that every knife is unique from the rest, and comes with a sturdy Kydex sheath for safe keeping. Get one now for $240.
