What sets the Martindale “Crocodile” blades apart is the tapered strip section used to better the chopping and cutting characteristics of the blade through optimizing the weight of the tool.

As for Martindale “Crocodile” machete handles, these are made from German beech wood and the timber is cross-sown for maximum strength and stability. Additionally, the handle is fitted to the blade with solid steel rivets and washers.

    This machete took very little sharpening. It works very well.It seems to be of good quality steel.there are no Martindale markings the handle is of very poor quality and full of hot spots hopefully I can fix that with some sanding.. I really like this machete however I would have expected a little better workmanship for the price.
