Machetes & Saws for Camping & Tactical Use

If you’re not already initiated when it comes to machetes and saws, you may be wondering in what context they’re often used. When it comes to camping and tactical applications, these tools offer a unique blend of dependability and durability. From simple tasks such as clearing small trees, breaking down firewood and foraging for food, to more complex scenarios like navigating through dense underbrush and cutting your way through rarely walked paths. It’s these tools that allow you to truly get off the beaten path and into nature.

Machetes have been around for a very long time. Though popularised globally by the explorative conquistadors of Spain, there have been machete-like weapons found as far back as the times of the ancient Egyptians. In their case, it was the use of a weapon called the khopesh. Similarly, hand-held saws have also been traced to that same era and geographic origin. 

Since then, machetes have been a staple weapon throughout the world. The national flag of Angola even features one! Much like knives, machetes have a range of different styles. The most commonly known would be the Latin machete, used primarily for bush clearing. The Bowie style from America is more of a large knife and self-defence tool. The Kukri machete is one that has seen widespread use by various armed forces throughout the world. And the Bolo, which originated from the Philippines, is a particular model that’s been used primarily as a harvesting tool.
