Machetes have been the gold standard EDC tool in Latin America and the Caribbean for nearly 200 years. In fact, during the Cuban revolution tens of thousands of seasoned Spanish rifleman could not defeat the Cuban rebels who relied mostly on guerilla tactics and were often armed with only a machete. They are used for everything from daily survival and bushcraft tasks to agricultural farm work. Modified versions have since proven devastatingly effective in both jungle warfare and close quarters combat. Our version, the “High Roller Machete” most closely resembles the “cola de gallo”, a modified machete we first encountered in Central America where both sicarios and bodyguards often modify their machete for better effectiveness as a CQB tool.
In Latin America, you can often tell the experience level and even pay rate of a security professional based off his machete alone. If it’s modified for speed and precision striking, well-kept in an intricately detailed handmade leather sheath, and worn for quick access, then they are the most likely top of their class.
What separates the Bone Tactical High Roller Fighting Machete from the rest of the pack is the materials, construction, fit, finish, metallurgy science, and attention to detail.
