The genuine "Crocodile" blade is made from hot rolled high quality British Steel by our own Mill. The strip is tapered in section to optimise the unique cutting characteristics with the weight of the tool.
Each face of the blade has three grooves which assist the blade's removal from sapwood. The grooves extend to the tang of the blade to form a mechanical lock with the handle.
Our product is therefore lightweight and easy to use. The blade is roll forged to give an outstandingly well balanced tool to meet the arduous demands of rural farmers throughout the tropical regions of the world.
Only "Crocodile" brand machets are made from tapered steel section with grooves which makes our product distinctly better than our competitors.
Quality is assured because we control every stage of production from steel billet to finished machet.
Every blade is individually tested to ensure the hardened and tempered steel characteristics conform to our strict quality controls.
We guarantee 100% inspection.
All our handles are made from German beech wood. We monitor the moisture content of the timber to make sure the product is consistent and does not split under normal circumstances.
The timber is cross-sawn for maximum strength and stability. The handle is fitted to the blade with solid steel rivets and washers. A special factory fitting technique is employed which has been perfected from 125 years experience to ensure our product is the best value for money and outlasts the life of other brands.
