Liong Mah was looking for a survival machete he could use in a variety of situations. So he designed this smaller sized one with a distinctive upswept overall shape. A walnut handle with lanyard holes allows for a forward carry that’s secure—unlike the grass it’ll encounter.

With designer Liong Mah designs, form follows function, and for this knife’s namesake from Palm Bay, Florida, the Mah-chete™ is no exception. The Mah-chete™ is a survival machete that fits in your backpack, and is ready to tackle even the biggest reeds and grass, and every feature of this tool is focused on helping you conserve energy, for when you need it most.
Lanyard holes in the comfortable walnut handle allow for a secure forward carry, while the upswept overall shape maximizes cutting performance, and the hand ground carbon steel blade with hammer-forged finish is crafted to stay sharp. The Mah-chete™ comes equipped with a reinforced nylon sheath that has a drop down option so you can strap it to your leg. There’s also extra paracord attached to the sheath for survival emergencies. Not that you’ll be in them for long with this blade.
If you’re searching for a machete that likes picking on grasses more than three times its size, the Mah-chete™ has your back in survival situations.

If we didn’t know any better, we’d think the English definition of Mah is “practical.” After all, it’s a useful sensibility Liong incorporates into all of his designs, like the new G.S.D.™, the ever popular Eat‘N Tool®, and the 2015 Mah-chete™. As a kid, where others doodled cartoons in their school notebooks, he drew knife designs. Later, having learned CAD, he was able to bring these ideas to life by collaborating with many of the top designers in the industry.
