Only 2 left in stock carries a wide variety of Ralph Martindale products. These machetes are made in their wholly-owned manufacturing plant in Thailand.  The Martindale “Crocodile” brand blades are made from hot rolled high quality British Steel, produce in the Martindale’s own mill.

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.

Each face of the blade has three grooves which assist the blade’s removal from sapwood. The grooves extend to the tang of the blade to form a mechanical lock with the handle. This makes the Martindale “Crocodile” machete lightweight and easy to use.  Only the Martindale brand machetes are made from tapered steel and are sectioned with grooves to make this product distinctly better than other competing brands.

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.
