When every bit of weight is accounted for, the Compact Clearpath Machete is the tough, packable tool to bring along. The thoughtful design partners a corrosion-resistant stainless steel blade with the confidence of the tactile Gator Grip® handle. The dual-sided blade has a fine edge for hacking brush/vines and a crosscut saw edge for getting through branches.
For back-country travel when every bit of weight is accounted for, the Compact Clearpath Machete is the tough, packable tool to bring along for the ride. The thoughtful design partners a corrosion-resistant, dual function stainless steel blade with the confidence of a GatorGrip® handle. The two-sided blade has both a fine edge for hacking brush and vines and a crosscut saw edge for cutting branches, limbs and small trees. When you head into the brush, never be without the Compact Clearpath Machete.
I bought this from Cabela's for $12. The machete is made well but the sheath is on the cheap side.
It's small, would be good for a young person or someone with a small build.
We brought the Compact Clear Path Machete on a trip to the remote Kedgewick River in New Brunswick, Canada. It felt great in the hand and handled clearing tasks with ease. I gave one to one of the guides on the trip and he loved it. He immediately started clearing brush around the cabin we were using for lunch, and made short work of it. When I asked him what he thought, he just smiled (in French) and gave me the thumbs up as he put it back in it’s holster and climbed back in the canoe. It’s compact enough to wear and still be very mobile without getting in the way. Great design and good weight balance. I enjoyed using it.
Doing search and rescue in the Southeast this is a great piece to have with you. From cutting rhododendron to sawing small limbs this helps moving through the thick underbrush.
I wore the sheath with the machete in it for 20 minutes on my belt, but when I looked down at it the loop holding it on the belt had worn out and was hanging by a thread.
