Finally, we have a Bush/Latin styled machete that is longer than 27″ to offer that has a wooden handle. This machete is slightly heavier than the Imacasa 28 Inch Pata de Cuches that we have to offer.
MacheteSpecialists.com 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.

I ordered one of these about seven years ago. I have cut brush nearly five days a week every summer since. It is, by far, the best machete I’ve ever used. I had to round off some of the edges of the grip, and I drilled a hole between the middle and lower rivets to accommodate a wrist lanyard. The steel is of excellent quality. It flexes easily, but will not warp or bend. It holds an edge for a good while, but I use it so much I have to sharpen it with a file every few weeks. I’ve sharpened it so many times it’s starting to look more like a sword than a machete! It has taken a ton of abuse, but it’s still as functional as the day I got it.

OUR SEASONED LAND SURVEY CREW CHIEFS HAVE SWORN BY THESE MACHETES FOR YEARS. ORDERING A COUPLE FOR THE YOUNG GUYS WHO LOVE MINE. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWER. AFTER A GOOD SHARPENING, PERFECT TO KEEP THE BRIARS AT ARMS LENGTH.

Great blade and light for it’s size. You will need to sharpen it and rework the handle to fit your hand but that is typical for these. For those wondering why you need a machete this long, briars. The length allows you to keep your hand and legs out of them while whacking them down.
