TRAMONTINA 26616/018 BUSH MACHETE 18 Inch
In the tropics, machetes are used as agricultural tools to harvest sugar cane, bananas and others. And also as a universal tool in the forest to walk the path in thick bushes, in reservoirs to cut reeds.
It is easier to cut crops such as cabbage. While using a machete, the machete experiences a shock load, where steel should be brittle (hard) but not brittle. If not, it is only then that the steel can be broken into pieces because it is broken. At the same time
a machete/knife also needs maximum hardness to maintain sharpness for a long time. For making machetes, Tramontina SAE 1070 uses carbon steel with a carbon content of 0.7%, which combines maximum hardness and structure.
