Our full-sized Personal Machete (04D04.16) has been one of our most popular outdoors tools for years. One of the reasons for that popularity is its unique full sized tropical hardwood handle with the bulb shaped end that provides such a secure grip. It fits your hand like a glove – and the solid brass pins are a nice plus. The design provides exceptional handling control. We have had many requests to add this style of tool with a shorter blade and here it is. Overall length is 16-1/2". Blade length 10-1/2". The shorter length gives you greater maneuverability when movement is more confined.

  • Short Personal Machete

    Heather , 1/11/2020 I was excited about receiving this order for a Christmas gift as I had ordered in November. However, I didn't receive the item until January. I wasn't pleased at all with customer service. The apology was very impersonal and no solutions were offered to help matters better. With that being said the machete is really well made. The appearance is nice and it has some heft. The person it was gifted to was pleased. The one thing I didn't care for is the sheath. It's a job to get the machete in and you nearly have to snatch it when ready to remove. The sheath is well made, just overly snug, its going to take a lot to get it broken in.

  • Personal Machete

    Kris, 12/16/2019 It is a great item. packaged well, it came oiled and ready to use. Impressive craftsmanship. I purchased 2. One for use and 1 for display...
  • Solid

    Daniel, 8/25/2019 This thing is awesome! Very well made and feels solid.
  • My Go-To Tool!

    Jean Fitzsimmons, 6/11/2019 I love the machete. It has heft, but it is well-balanced. Beautiful, well-made leather sheath. Much easier to use than two longer machetes I own.
  • Nice Blade and Sheath

    William Bischoff, 6/1/2019 Bought this for my son so it has not been used yet. Nevertheless I am very pleased with the item that arrived. This is a nice carbon steel blade. It seems strong, and the sheath is well made, nicely finished leather. I'm pleased so far with the mini machete that I bought.
  • Short Personal Machete

    Gary Umali, 4/22/2019 This 'gulokan' brings back memories of experiences I had growing up in my tropical birthplace! This machete is well-built and durable. I love its full tang and somewhat elongated handle where I could place my grip depending on the intricacy or intensity of the task that needs to be done. The tightness in the thick leather sheath I think is needed to prevent accidental dropping, it will be 'broken-in' with prolonged use. I chopped a 3-inch diameter dried eucalyptus branch with ease, and it begs for more! I can't wait to abuse this machete in our forthcoming camping.
  • Short Personal Machete

    Vicki L Kenworthy, 4/1/2019 The 1st knife had fractured, when my husband used it. I called and they were very nice, and professional and promptly sent me label to send back and replace with a new one. Great knife - very well made and beautiful as well. Happy customer : )

  • Short personal machete

    JoAnne, 12/28/2018 Bought the machete for my son in law for Christmas. He loves it! Very well made, perfect size and heft. I’ve earned many points as a mother in law!!!!!!
  • Smaller Machete

    Robert , 12/25/2018 Arrived promptly and well packaged ... looks good ... feels good ... must be good! Almost excited about the thrashing I’m about to embark on doing with it.
  • Fine Short Personal Machete

    William, 4/9/2018 Arrived in good order. Well packaged with care instructions. Seems well made, like the wood handle. Not so large it becomes unwieldy while carrying or using. Packs well. May need sharpening.
  • Nice

    Jamie, 2/8/2018 Love it! Nice blade,handle and sheath! Love how the sheath when on belt loop flows freely 360' .
  • Great quality with one small drawback

    Michael L., 8/5/2017 The machetes are of very good quality. The only drawback is they do not come with a sample of the oil you are encouraged to use to keep them in top form.
  • Personal Machete

    Robert, 5/6/2017 Very nice finish and seems very solid. Have only used briefly but really like the size and balance close work and seems to hold edge pretty well. More costly than many options, but personally believe it was worth the higher cost. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a shorter length machete
  • Great tool for the jobs

    Rick Thompson, 4/28/2017 One of the best blades I own. Balance, weight, sharpness, ideal for the job. Thanks for a great tool!
  • Most Excellent Tool

    Ronald L. Keffer, 2/13/2017 I certainly wasn't disappointed when this machete arrived. It is weighty and sturdy, with a thick, pre-sharpened blade. This won't just cut weeds; it will lop off sizable branches easily. It's almost an axe instead of a machete. The handle is most welcome, too. This machete will not fly out of your hand. That large knob on the end of the handle is just what the doctor ordered. I'm 70, and my grip isn't what it used to be, but even I can hang onto this tool. I highly recommend it. Do note its length. It isn't a long machete, but you'll love what it can do.
  • Well pleased.

    Charles, 12/9/2016 Great machete at a fair price. Use it most every day clearing fence lines and trails..
  • Good tool

    Paul Smoland, 10/23/2016 Good balance, comes sharp, heavy, nice sheath. I bought it for bamboo, but right now using it for lopping branches from fallen tree. Makes up for its short length by its weight and super sturdiness.
  • Good buy!

    Eric Dennis, 7/18/2016 The length and weight of this machete made for excellent handling with good cutting power. The sheath was a little tight, but that should wear in over time.
  • Solid stuff!

    Bob, 7/16/2016 You can't wreck a steel ball, and these things are built like that! This is my second Condor product and I am very impressed by the construction, balance and craftsmanship of these tools.
  • Short Personal Machete

    Robert, 7/16/2016 An excellent tool for clearing brush, trimming limbs, or any number of odd jobs. Sharp right out of the box with a good solid wood handle. Highly satisfied.
  • High Quality Machete

    Kevin, 3/28/2016 Super sharp, well balanced with full tang and excellent handle. Heavy duty sheath. Great for clearing and de-branching cut trees.
