    The best “machete “ for self defense is a native made sugar cane knife from the Caribbean. Made from 1/8 or 3/16 inch thick carbon steel.
    They used to be readily available in South Florida when US Sugar imported Jamaican cane cutters every season.
    Such a knife will remove a whole arm with one strike.

    The best ones for the money I found are made in South America by a company called Tramontina.
    I have been using them for over 35 years.
    I do believe these are the same ones RPD is taking about.

    A cane knife is not shaped like a machete, it is closer to a cleaver in shape, about 16" blade length with a brush hook on the top tip.

    Yes I know what they look like, seen them many times in use when ferrying airplanes in the Caribbean.

    Same company makes them also, I think the largest supplier of long blades south of the equator.
    They also make household utensils, pots and pans.
