For hundreds of years in various tropical countries, in some distinctive style, the Machete has long been a knife of choice for the Outdoor Working People. The Machete is used to cut through rain forest and undergrowth, harvest crops, and for many household chores... It is also a popular weapon of choice is rural uprisings.
TOPS has had numerous requests from customers to produce a light, fast, practical and general use blade in conjunction with an enlarged comfortable working handle... A Machete...
Well-known designer, outdoorsman and writer, Joe 'Shangoman' Flowers, collaborated with TOPS shop manager, Leo 'The Lion' Espinoza on the design for a new machete. After much deliberation, they finally came to a positive agreement with the design and practical field ability. The Machete .230 was born.
